A Vintage Year
E-book, E-Book (USA), Hardback, Paperback
It started with ‘happily ever after’, yet just three years after Bella’s fairy-tale wedding to irrepressible Charlie Wellbeloved, her best friend, Maddy, is expecting a baby, while Bella’s own weight gain is purely from comfort eating. Only her little Labrador, Dolly, can boost her spirits as she gloomily surveys her failing marriage and fledgling interior design business.
Dovecot Farm is just a rainstorm away from ruin, but Charlie is hoping against hope his family vineyard will produce a vintage year, saving his business, his childhood home and – most of all – his marriage …
When handsome Rufus appears in the tight-knit Havenbury community, he quickly charms Bella and makes himself indispensable to Charlie. But is he really too good to be true …

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I am so glad I read book 1 back to back with this one. I would have been so book hanging if not awaiting this one.
We have some different characters to meet in Havenbry and some old faces you will remain comfortable with.
I adore books that are real to life. Relationships that are in trouble or are falling apart.
Counting the pennies and not some miracle that happens and all live happy ever after.
I think, no…I'm sure that's why I loved this so much.
Everyone has flaws, people can hide things from each other, deceive, lie and sometimes with the best of intentions.
Bella made a vital decision early on in the book that opened up a lot of consequences.
It's hard to say much as this story has a very good plot to it and no giveaways are coming from me.
