The Winemakers: A Novel of Wine and Secrets - Jan Moran

I received a copy of this book from Bookstr/The Reading Room in exchange for an honest review.

 

This was quite the page-turner. I was intrigued by the first page and it kept my interest until the last.

 

A really fascinating story that intermixes suspense, romance, and wine making. I'll admit that sometimes that descriptions were a little too detailed for my personal taste, especially when it came to fashion, but there were also many beautiful images created, resulting in a wonderful read.

 

I really liked Ava and Caterina's charaters. I loved their power and growth throughout the novel.

 

The shifting focus on different characters and setting worked very well and kept the book interesting. I also liked that there was a lot going on plot-wise, with various issues arising. While much of the plot was fairly predictable, it was still a fun read.

 

I'm not big into romance books, but this was a pretty mellow one so I enjoyed it. The major relationship in the novel is well-developed without being overly descriptive (although it was a bit creepy at times).

 

Overall, a very well-written book that is easy to read and tells and fantastic story.

The Winemakers: A Novel of Wine and Secrets - Jan Moran

I received this book for free through The Reading Room’s giveaways.

 

So first off, I simply adore historical fiction novels about women in their early 20’s trying to forge their own path in life. This book was precisely that so I liked that aspect of the book.

 

For the most part, I enjoyed the plot, however, the ending was a bit overdramatic.

 

I also really liked all the romantic locations (Napa, Italy, and Paris) that the book took the reader through.

 

My favorite thing about this book was how it was subtly sex positive. Like at one point someone says, “What? Sex is healthy between two people in love.” There was also some very nice french lingerie mentioned.

 

Overall, it was a great historical fiction novel.
