Can you imagine a world without wine? I can’t!

Words about words:
Tall. Dark. And handsome!?!?!
Ummmm … These are not the words I usually find in the books I read. I looked at my wife and said I know I told them I would read it, but you might have to take this one on for me.”
She looked back
Two days later
I was turning pages as fast as I could read and getting irritated whenever I had to put the book down.
So I guess what I’m saying is … She was right and I was less right.
Despite not being my usual history or wine science gotos, there is a lot of actual wine history and knowledge in this book. It’s a well researched fun tour around many wine regions and producers in the world.
It’s perfect for when:
- You need a break from reading The Wine Bible for the third time, but you still want to read about wine.
- You love historical fiction. I personally can’t see why we need another princess/queen/Viking historical drama, but if you’re like my wife … you probably feel the exact opposite of me.
- You want to get wrapped up in a mystery while chilling on the beach this summer and just read something for the fun of it.
Bottom line, I enjoyed it.
Glad I stuck with it. Given the genre, I honestly would not have picked this up at the store, but maybe I should consider expanding my reading list to include a little more fiction.
