I really liked this Cozy!!! Sometimes it felt like a cozy version of Clue, but with wine.... I liked the setting, the main and supporting characters- and at the risk of a spoiler (stop here) all of the suspects were dislikable so I really was surprised by the end. #cbbc @SamHeartCoffee I will send it out by the weekend.

SamHeartCoffee Can‘t wait! 😘 3y

Mehso-so

This book ended up being a cute story, but I guess it just didn‘t all come together for me the way I wish it had. I‘m definitely in a reading slump, so that may be part of my problem!!

Ya‘ll December was hard for me. Overwhelming, emotional, and the beginning of one of the hard times of the year for my anxiety. I‘m sorry that I wasn‘t very present here in the way I wanted to be. I don‘t do resolutions but I have goals to spend more time here than fb, bc here gives me peace. Reading and snuggling while Twilight plays in the background. Now which Litten wants to be in charge of planning a Napa trip?!

BethM @StayCurious @Clwojick will you guys be soliciting feedback about winter games? 3y

BethM @JenReadsAlot thanks😘 seriously though we should do a non peak season weekend in door county or something. Get a place to stay and do a bunch of wineries. It can be a Litsy meet up even if it‘s only you, me, kaylin (I cant seem to spell her handle right), and @Kshakal 3y
JenReadsAlot I would be game for that and I'm sure @KLyn1 would be as well. 3y
Kshakal @BethM @JenReadsAlot that would be amazing!!!! 💖💖💖 3y
Avanders Oooh a Napa trip sounds very relaxing 😌 Sorry to hear about your difficult month... Thinking of you and sending hugs 🤗♥️ and if I can, I‘ll send some sun in my next package from NM! I‘ll also be jelly when y‘all go to Door County for a weekend of wine-tasting 😋🍷 3y

As I was staring out my office window into the winter wonderland that had been created outside, I decided to do a blog post for the most recent book I finished, "One Foot in the Grape" by Carlene ONeill. This was a fun and quick book to help me through this awful reading slump I've been in. It follows Penelope aka Penny as she runs a winery and must get to the bottom of who is trying to sabotage a family friends winery.

TheAromaofBooks That is some serious snow!! Where are you? We only got a couple inches here in Ohio and now it's gone again, 3y
Callemarie @TheAromaofBooks I'm about 40 mins outside of Cleveland. This pic was taken tuesday 3y

Crazeedi Wow, I live a couple hrs north of Pittsburgh, and we didnt even get that kind of snow! 3y
Callemarie @Crazeedi I live in Ashtabula Ohio and am only about a 5 min drive from the lake so unfortunately we sometimes are the lucky ones and just get dumped on 3y
BethM That‘s gorgeous, however having had 4 snows already I also know how annoying it is this early 😂 3y
Callemarie @BethM I could only imagine yalls winters. No thank you!!! Haha 3y
TheAromaofBooks Oh yes, I'm much further south than you - southeast of Columbus towards the Hocking Hills. Mom told me the Farmers' Almanac predicts a lot of snow this winter, so we'll see what happens! 3y
Callemarie @TheAromaofBooks ugh dont tell me that. I have to start going back into the office starting today. I can't have this winter being bad 😭😭😭 3y

Even when you're trying to watch your weight, count your calories, get 10k steps in in a day. When you're showered and relaxing on the couch.... sometimes nothing beats a glass of your favorite beer. I'm enjoying this without feeling guilty and snuggling up to finish this book. Cheers to the majority of the week being behind us. 🍻🍺

What drew me to this book was the fact that I recently obtained a job at a winery! This book didn't disappoint, great characters and setting and just enough wine facts to make it a fun read! If you love cozies check this one out!
