Once Upon a Wine by Beth Kendrick

She's working when her cousin calls saying there's an emergency.  She puts her off because she's a waitress and needs to take care of her orders.  Her cousin insists she needs to drop everything and come now.  While she's trying to explain she can't, she gets fired.  Well, she has plenty of time to go now...

NAL and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published July 5th.

This is a cozy romance that was really fun to read.  Take three stubborn women and put them on a failing vineyard and watch the fireworks!  Her aunt has bought the vineyard as a fulfillment of long held dream.  Her cousin is trying to decide if she still wants to be married to her husband.  Cammie lost her restaurant and her boyfriend first, then her job as a waitress and her apartment.  This is a last retreat for her.

Now throw in the husband visiting and asking his wife to come back.  Add in a hot farmboy next door that Cammie was in love with long ago.  Then add the man the aunt has picked up at wine sampling party.  Now everyone has men problems as well as trying to figure out how to raise grapes and make wine.  It's a good thing they have a homemade strawberry wine recipe in the family they can use to fill in.  It's also cool that she can buy the berries from her old love, who might be her new love, too.

There are enough antics to keep you smiling and laughing and they overcome all their problems.  The French Bulldog adds his charm to the story, too.  Cammie even achieves her ultimate dream although it's not where she thought it would be.  I enjoyed this read.
