A sweet romantic comedy set in beautiful Napa Valley!
Ivy needs a miracle and a drink—not necessarily in that order. With a struggling winery, the only hope of keeping her dream alive is snagging a gold medal at the annual wine competition. She’s determined to win, but she can do it without the help of Ted Jacobs, aka Mr. Know-it-All.
Ted wants to catch lightning in a bottle and create the world’s greatest wine, but he’s smart enough to know he can’t do it alone. When he heads to Napa to keep his grandma from ending up in jail (don’t ask), he meets Ivy. She’s as complex and intoxicating as his award-winning cabernet, but as stubborn as the mule next door when she stomps on his offer to collaborate.
Ted knows it’s risky to mix business with pleasure, but if Ivy would only listen, they might just be the toast of the town.

Today is my stop on the Blog Tour for this Spanish, sunshine filled new release from Lucy Coleman. Thank you to Rachel's Random Resources for inviting meet join the tour, and for my copy of the ebook in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.
Lainey Summers feels blessed to have her dream job writing for a renowned foodie magazine. And the day she goes to interview chef Rick Oliver at his new restaurant—Aleatory—in London’s popular Piccadilly, is the start of an unexpected journey.
When Rick is offered the opportunity to jet off to a monastery in Andalucía, to film a cookery competition for Spanish TV, Lainey goes too, to cover the story.
Spending a month filming in the stunning Spanish countryside, soaking up the sights, sounds, smells and of course the cuisine, Lainey and Rick start to enjoy each other’s company. But their time together flies by too quickly, and before they know it, Rick and Lainey have to face going their separate ways.
With both their worlds shifting beneath them, the call of Andalucia and the call of happiness grows ever stronger. But with everything at stake, will they be able to take the chance of a happy-ever-after…
Let Lucy Coleman whisk you off on a sun-baked, life-affirming, total escape to beautiful Andalucia.
This is such a wonderful, romantic and heartwarming read that I loved from beginning to end.
Lainey Summers enjoys her job working as a writer for a well known foodie magazine. It is a job she has worked hard to get and it certainly keeps her busy.
Her latest assignment is to interview the Head chef, Rick Oliver in the latest hotspot restaurant. What Lainey doesn't realise is just how much her life is going to change after she meets Rick and the adventure she is on is only just beginning.
Rick is offered a job opportunity in Spain to star on a cookery competition and he offers Lainey the chance to cover the competition for the UK audience. She jumps at the chance and is soon heading to a beautiful and historic Monastery in Andalucia.
Lainey is determined to make the most of her time in Spain and is soon experiencing all of the sights, sounds and food that the area has to offer her. She finds herself spending more and more time with Rick and the two of them become close. There is definitely a spark of attraction between the pair of them but with Rick already in a relationship he is strictly out of bounds.
Once their month away in Spain draws to a close it becomes apparent how close the two of them have become and goodbye becomes so very hard. Will the two of them decide that their month away was just that, and that would be all they will ever have or will love find a way through for them both and give them their happy ever after.
This was such a wonderful book to read and really does sweep you away to the beautiful surroundings and sunshine that Andalucia has to offer.
I really enjoy the writing style of Lucy Coleman. It always flows well and has a thoroughly engaging storyline. I really enjoy the history of the region that is included in the book and I feel it really does add to the storyline.
Lainey was a wonderful character to get to know. She has worked hard to get to the job she has and this has meant not being able to have much else in her life. It becomes apparent as you read through the book how much she has been hurt in the past too which explains why she is trying to keep Rick at arms length.
Risk has worked hard to build his career as chef and he has the lifestyle to show for it. He also has had difficulties he as had to overcome in his past too.
The setting of the book in Andalucia sounds simply beautiful and the perfect place to fall in love. I enjoyed reading about all of the sight and sounds that Lainey and Rick experience, and the food described will certainly make your mouth water.
This is another brilliant release from Lucy Coleman and will give you a much needed injection of sunshine even on a cold dreary grey day.

‘Delightfully romantic and touching.’ Phillipa Ashley
Laurie Morgan runs a café in the small seaside community of Mermaids Point, named after the beauties rumoured to live in the waters a few miles off the top of the point. When a hazy image is posted online of what appears to be a mermaid, the café and the village are soon full to bursting with curious sightseers.
The most eye-catching of the new arrivals is handsome author, Jake Smith, who has rented a cottage for the summer while he works on his new book. Or so he says. In fact, he is a journalist, burned out and disillusioned with life, whose editor has sent him on a crack-pot hunt for mermaids...
Jake quickly finds himself drawn to village life, and to the gorgeous woman who runs the local café. But he soon suspects there’s trouble lurking beneath the idyllic façade, and when it looks like Laurie’s family might be involved, Jake faces a difficult choice. Pursue the truth, or protect the woman he’s beginning to fall in love with…

But it’s not all fun for Belinda. If her life was a board game, she’s losing at snakes and ladders. Once she’d been working her way up one of those ladders but, thanks to her snake-like polytechnic lecturer, she’s toppled from the rungs. Now she works in an old people’s home, where her chief duties involve cleaning toilets and emptying commodes.
At least her lovely colleague, Joe, offers excitement in her otherwise dreary life. But Belinda can’t believe he'd be interested in someone like her. Not when her pretty friend, Tracey, only has to glance at a man to have him fall for her.
But just when it seems things are looking up for Belinda, the residents’ precious possessions start to go missing. Then she witnesses a disturbing incident and doesn’t know what to do. Luckily, Belinda has Joe to guide her – until she discovers that he’s hiding a secret, one that forces her to make an agonising decision.
Will she continue to hide in the shadows, never speaking out – or will she put her future on the line to stand up for what is right? After all, she’s caring for a generation that's lived through two wars. Now it’s time to fight for them.

Escape to the countryside with a heart-warming new novel from Katie Ginger, author of Snowflakes at Mistletoe Cottage.
Amelia loves her life in Paris. But with the surprise inheritance of her childhood home, Meadow Farmhouse, she has no choice but to return to the small village of Meadowbank to restore her great-aunt’s old farmhouse.

Fans of Rachael Lucas, Cathy Bramley and Jenny Colgan will fall in love with Katie Ginger!
KATIE GINGER lives by the sea in the south-east of England, and apart from holidays to very hot places where you can sit by a pool and drink cocktails as big as your head, she wouldn’t really want to be anywhere else.

She is also the author of the Swallowtail Bay series – Spring Tides at Swallowtail Bay, Summer Strawberries at Swallowtail Bay and Winter Wishes at Swallowtail Bay, Snowflakes at Mistletoe Cottage and the Seafront series – The Little Theatre on the Seafront, shortlisted for the Katie Fforde Debut Novel of the Year award, and Summer Season on the Seafront.
When she’s not writing, Katie spends her time with her husband and two kids, and their dogs: Wotsit, the King Charles spaniel, and Skips, the three-legged rescue dog. (And yes, they are both named after crisps!)
