When Natalie Mitchell learns her beloved grandfather has had a heart attack, she’s forced to return to their family-owned winery in Sonoma, something she never intended to do. She’s avoided her grandparents’ sprawling home and all its memories since the summer her sister died—the awful summer Natalie’s nightmares began. But the winery is failing, and Natalie’s father wants her to shut it down. As the majority shareholder, she has the power to do so.
And Natalie never says no to her father.
Tanner Collins, the vintner on Maoilios, is trying to salvage a bad season and put the Mitchell family’s winery back in business. When Natalie Mitchell shows up, Tanner sees his future about to be crushed. Natalie intends to close the gates, unless he can convince her otherwise. But the Natalie he remembers from childhood is long gone, and he’s not so sure he likes the woman she’s become. Still, the haunted look she wears hints at secrets he wants to unearth. He soon discovers that on the night her sister died, the real Natalie died too. And Tanner must do whatever it takes to resurrect her.
But finding freedom from the past means facing it.@goodreads
Natalie Mitchell works for her father at his big corporation and so does her ex-fiance. As you can imagine this doesn't make it easy for Natalie. She's having problems at work and on her way to another nervous breakdown.
Natalie's father decides to tell her to go out to her grandfather's vineyard. He's had a heart attack and the business is not doing good. Go out there, take a break and find a way to shut down the vineyard. Well, Natalie is a part owner in the vineyard and she doesn't want it to fail.
Natalie finds that her grandfather is doing better than her dad let on although the business is not doing too great. Natalie starts to go about getting the vineyard into this century and earning money again.
An on old childhood crush works at the vineyard, Tanner Collins. He's pretty rude to Natalie for some time because she hasn't come and seen her grandfather or the vineyard since her twin sister died when they were younger.
The vineyard brings back some good and bad memories for Natalie but she pushes on. And she finally stands up to her father, she lets go of some demons by telling the truth about her sister and she finds peace with Tanner and maybe a little something else.
I thought the book was a good read. I didn't love it nor did I hate it. I usually read all kinds of genres and they are a hit or miss with me. I'm happy for all of the people that loved it the book though.
