throws them together in an intimate, tension-filled setting. 
 
 
 
SAUVIGNON BLANC TO SIGH FOR
Love in Wine Country #4
Pamela Gibson
Releasing Feb 13th, 2017
 

 

Sarah James has always wanted to be part of a family. Her divorced parents are estranged and she has no siblings. But she does have friends, especially Sam, who’s always underfoot…eating her food, fixing stuff in her house, and seeking advice about his love life.
 
Aspiring winemaker Sam Reynoso has taken care of Sarah since the sixth grade. She’s smart, comfortable, and indulgent. They’re best friends until a wine and food pairing competition throws them together in an intimate, tension-filled setting.

 

As feelings neither of them expected start to emerge, each will have to decide if their relationship will evolve, or if their newfound love will be nipped in the bud by a crushing secret.

Sarah moved around behind him. Her subtle perfume blended with the smells in the kitchen. “Do you think my label is okay?”

 

They’re not judging your label. They’re judging how well the food and wines complement each other.”

 

You’re right.” He set the bottle down and turned to greet his friend, but she wasn’t there. In her place stood a siren—that’s the first word that came to mind—in tight leggings that hugged her hips and bared her midriff, and a fitted shirt that tied under plump breasts, showing a hint of cleavage.

 

What the hell?

 

But it was the hair that got his attention.

 

What have you done to your hair?”

 

She twirled in front of him, letting her hair swing from side to side provocatively. It looked lighter, and it looked like she had way more hair. “Where are your glasses?”

 

I’m wearing contacts. Do you like this look?” She batted her eyelashes at him and moved closer.

 

He stepped back, aware of an unaccustomed heat he’d never felt in Sarah’s house before. She was his friend. She shouldn’t look like this.

 

She seemed to be waiting for his answer, but he didn’t know what to say.

 

It’s…different.”

 

She laughed and put her hand on his chest. It left a warm spot there. He couldn’t back up any more, because the edge of the counter was biting into his backside.

 

Do you think people will believe we’re a couple now, Mr. Hot Guy?” Her voice was low and sexy, her soft mouth curved into a secret smile.

 

Geez, Sarah. You didn’t have to change your appearance.”

 

Sure I did. We’re supposed to be a couple in a committed relationship. I have to look like the girls you date. I have to be warm and affectionate, and look at you like you’re my dessert course.” She paused and ran her tongue over her bottom lip. “Let’s see. What would you be? A chocolate soufflé, puffed and pretty on the outside and dark and intense on the inside, with flavors that slide over the tongue and linger there to be savored later, making you crave more.”

 

The room was suddenly hot. How would he concentrate on wines when she looked—and talked—like that? And how would he keep guys at the resort away from her?

 

His eyes fixed on her cleavage. “Could you go put on a sweatshirt or something? We need to get down to business.”

 

Sarah laughed, showing dimples in her cheeks. She had dimples? Why hadn’t he noticed before?

 

I’m sorry Sam. The deer-in-the-headlights look on your face is priceless. But you’re going to have to get used to the new Sarah…at least for a week. We need to be convincing. Isn’t that what you said last time you were here?

 

He shoved his fingers through his hair. “Did I?”

 

No more playacting right now. Pour the wines, and let’s start tasting with food.”

 

 

 
 
Sauvignon Blanc to Sigh For (Love in Wine Country, #4)Sauvignon Blanc to Sigh For by Pamela Gibson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the 4th book in the Love In Wine Country series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader enjoyment and understanding, I recommend reading series in order.

Sarah & Sam have been best friends for so long, they do not have room to think of more. Now, with this sudden surprise he has thrown her, she is re-thinking everything. She hates that he is trying to control her life and she is so done.

Sam does not know where these feelings are coming from. He only knows he has never thought of Sarah this way before. The future looks bleak without her in it.

Interesting story. I felt drawn to both characters early on. I was rooting for them almost right away. This series is just so sweet and the pace moves right along.

Pamela Gibson grew up loving books, history, and small towns. Her first career was a newspaper reporter, but when she returned to college to get a master’s degree, it was in public administration which eventually led to jobs running cities…not as an elected official, but as a city manager, the chief appointed one.
 
Writing was still her passion and in her spare time—between meetings and raising two active kids—she was contracted to write several books on local history. Taking an early retirement at the urging of her very supportive husband, she turned to fiction and began writing the happy ending novels she loves to read.
 
She now spends half her time on land and the other half cruising coastal or inland waters in her 32-foot boat. She speed-eats chocolates when she’s nervous, squeals when she sees a spider, and loves to relax with a good read with a mellow glass of wine.

Crossing the Friend Zone (Belmont Beach Brides) - Kelly Eadon

This is book #3 in the Belmont Beach Brides series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader enjoyment and understanding, I recommend reading this series in order.

 

Ainsley and Ryan are already friends.  Or are they frenemies?  They already rub each other wrong.  All the time.  What will happen when they rub the right way?

 

Ryan knows he will have hell to pay with their close group of friends if he pushes her too far.  What no one else knows, is the chemistry between them is about to become flammable.  All he knows is she is hot, and he is hot for her.

 

This was a sweet and lovely read.  Has characters we are happy to revisit.  The sexy times and character development makes for a great story.  Excellent add for the series.  I give this book a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Good Story and Characters

Mallory is having the mansion remodeled into a B&B she hopes to open when she does her first wedding in her new wedding planning business. Mallory’s sister Rachel  is helping her to do the remodel. Jesse is a contractor and his crew have their hands full with the remodel. Jesse mom Delilah is a witch. Someone is sabotaging the repairs and stealing tools while Jesse is trying to get the remodel done. Thistle Park is rumored to have a ghost-Evelyn   Garrett with all the mysterious activity in the house Mallory has to call Howard Heyward and the Post  Guenez Paranormal Society.  Whitney booked Thistle park for her wedding in eight months but comes to Mallory and she begs to be able to move up her wedding so her dying father can be at the ceremony. Mallory agrees and then finds herself and her family in an old murder investigation and a new murder investigation when Whitney’s Aunt Lois.drops dead from food poisoning at the food tasting part of the wedding preparation. Mallory’s wedding planning business is off to a very rocky start. Mallory is investigating a new and old murder, battling with the Planning Commission, has a realty ghost hunting program in her butt, and a bad relationship with her ex fiance Keith and his new fiance Becca. How much more can Mallory handle. But this is not the first murder in Whitney’s- the bride- family Her mother had been murdered years ago and the murder wasn’t really solved. Mallory’s boyfriend is the defense attorney for and Garrett thinks he  the man who is currently being held for murder and Garrett thinks he is innocent. Mallory and Garrett start their own investigation into these murders. However the killer plans on Mallory never solving the mystery. Mallory also is getting anonymous letters.

I really liked this story it had so much to offer. And I enjoyed reading it. It had a great plot and was written well as far as I'm concerned. I like how Mallory handles herself and starts to try to find out herself who the killer is. This is fast paced and at times made me laugh out loud and that always good. But there were a few too many plots and sometimes made t hard to keep up. I enjoyed how Rachel and Mallory interacted with each other also. Also would have liked a little more focus on Lois’s background but otherwise I had no problem and thoroughly enjoyed this story. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this story and I recommend.
