The Vine Witch | Luanne G. Smith

A beautiful cover, an interesting story, and only minor problems! I really liked it. Elena, a French vine witch, comes home after 7 years to find that her mentor sold their vineyard. Now she has to deal with revenge, a new owner, and too many people keeping secrets.
4/5 stars, would recommend to anyone who likes witches and quick reads

I saw a lot of mixed reviews for this one so I wasn‘t sure what to expect. I actually enjoyed the story. My first job was in a restaurant so I liked the restaurant setting and I thought the writing was pretty good. The cable series isn‘t bad, either. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I really loved parts of this book. Anyone that has ever waited tables or worked in a restaurant will relate to so much of this book. But...THE DIALOGUE! It was terrible! I know the author was trying to be literary, but it did not work for me. 👎🙄🤦‍♀️

Cinfhen Ha!!! This book was the literary version of Vanderpump Rules 😉🍷🍷🍷 3w
Tera66 @Cinfhen Lol! But it could have been so much better. And I'm cool with that kind of talk with my bad reality TV!😂 3w

A riveting historical fiction book that made me learn new things about the WW2 era while also entertaining me. The epistolary 1940‘s storyline was intense and emotional. The present-day storyline had some mystery as Kate, with family and friends, worked to learn more info about a just-found secret stash of rare wine in the basement and a journal written by a previously-unknown aunt. I could taste and smell all of the French cuisine!! So fantastic.

A few favorite cocktail books from my beverage books & bar shelves. There are sure to be plenty of tasty drinks made with #tequila in these.

This isn't a bad book, but at halfway I just couldn't get into it. It may be a mood thing, I picked it up because I was desperate for something to fill #goodreadssummerreading cat "a genre you've never read before," which was nearly impossible for me but I don't think I've read a "wine" book. But this is also very much a book about rich people problems in an industry built on racism/slavery (which the author recognizes) so I don't really care...

WhatWouldJaneDo @Leftcoastzen I'm still considering gifting it to the wine people in my life, but I just didn't get into the topic! Some bits interested me more than others but at 50% I just didn't want to pick it up anymore and I'm trying to be better about DNFing stuff if it's not for me. Too many other books to read! 1mo
Leftcoastzen Yep! Life is too short to read books you‘re not getting into, a better book awaits! 1mo

Updates to my #nonfiction2019 #BINGO finished "Becoming" for something with politics, currently listening to "The River of Doubt" about Theodore Roosevelt's expedition to map an unknown river in the Amazon for something with history, and the tagged book for something with law or medicine - it involves an arson case and the following investigation.
Any recs I can use for the "something you saw on Litsy" category, Littens?

Megabooks And this is my fav memoir 1mo
WhatWouldJaneDo @Megabooks thanks! I'll check both of them out! 1mo

Great great book. I totally enjoyed! It's the story of Josep who acquires his family's land and goes from growing grapes used only to make vinegar to a bodega with premium vino! 5 ⭐

Andrew65 Sounds interesting. Stacked! 1mo
Crazeedi @Andrew65 I think you might enjoy! Have you read any of his books? He has a 3 book series starts with this one, the Cole family trilogy 1mo
Crazeedi @Andrew65 I have enjoyed every one I've read "the physician" and the second one "the shaman" were very good , the 3rd one wasnt as good but still interesting 1mo

Andrew65 @Crazeedi I own a copy of the Physician but never read it. I obviously need to. 👍 1mo
Lynnsoprano @crazeedi @Andrew65 The Physician is one of my favorite books of all time! I agree, The Shaman was good but not as good, and I kind of pushed myself to finish the third. This book is new to me. Must add to TBR! 1mo
Andrew65 @Lynnsoprano A glowing recommendation, thanks. Will seek to get to it very soon. 😊👍 (edited) 1mo

I enjoyed reading this mystery about missing vintage wine. I was actually a little bit familiar with some of the wines from having read In Vino Duplicitas, about Rudy Kurniawan and the biggest con in wine history. #ReadingThroughTheYears192021 #2009
