Alexis Le Blanc enjoys her simple life in Crystal Cove, Maine. After taking a chance on romance and getting rejected, she has given up on love. Now she devotes all her time to running her family’s winery, Coastal Vines. She wants to keep it small and traditional, but her parents have other ideas—hence why they hire some big-shot marketing executive from Napa Valley to rev up business.

When Benito Martelli shows up in her family’s tasting room, she’s more than stunned to discover he’s the man who wined and dined her the night before. Alexis is beyond peeved at his deception in trying to get into her good graces for the sake of making money on her winery. At first, she wants nothing to do with him or his big business ideas, but she’s pleasantly surprised when they come to a compromise, and even more surprised when she gives in to the sparks between them.

Unfortunately, things don’t go quite as planned and Alexis is faced with complications she never could have predicted. Promises and secrets unravel, and she must decide if love and wine are as well paired as she hoped.

Review:

5 Red, Red Wine Stars on Goodreads

From the first moment I picked up this book and started Alexis and Benito’s story I was hooked. Alexis is one tough cookie and she does not want her family business getting into the wrong hands. She thinks that she knows what’s best for her business and she doesn’t need some Italian guy walking in and taking over.

In walks Benito with his good looks and his charm and she wants to hate him.

I love the depth that Marianne has put into her characters I love her secondary characters which to me always makes a book brilliant.

I love that she has a Kick-Ass leading lady who knows her mind and is well able to stick up for herself she is strong and independent but yet has a sensitive side as well.

This was such an enjoyable read and I would highly recommend giving it a read. Looking forward to seeing what’s next in the series.
