Sour Grapes (The Blue Plate Series)

by Rachel Goodman

Uncork this delectable Texas Hill Country romance from the critically acclaimed author of From Scratch, the "smart, sexy, and funny" debut that "piles on the Southern charm" (Publishers Weekly). Margaret Stokes is bitter. And not in the robust fine wine or tangy dark chocolate kind of way. She just got dumped, is fed up with her job as a glorified party-planner for the rich, and can't possibly listen to one more veiled insult from her impossible-to-please mother. So she retreats to the comfort of her grandmother's ramshackle bed and breakfast, where the wide open vineyards are filled with surprises, from the shockingly delicious wine to the aggravating yet oh-so-tempting man who makes it. Ryan Camden's easy approach to life encourages Margaret to loosen up and have a little fun, despite her better judgment. She resists the urge to micromanage every detail, embracing the welcome distractions of her surroundings and letting their relationship unfold at a natural rhythm. But when a health scare forces Grammy J to give up the B&B, Margaret begins to wonder if Ryan really is the man he promises--and whether the problems she tried so hard to escape ever really went away.
