"The wine! The food! The Italian!" She's come to Italy for a little adventure, good food, and a last trip with her college-aged daughter. When a good-looking Italian winemaker invites her to dinner, she finds more than she anticipated. But how can romance in Italy be more than a fling when she lives on the California coast? Elizabeth Ladina took one risk in her life and she's vowed not to make another. Although she had a good life (she thought) with her deceased husband, and she loves her daughter, Sarah, life as a single parent wasn't easy and there was certainly no time for romance. But an Italian winemaker sparks something inside her she's never felt before. If she doesn't take a chance now, will another one ever come along? Divorced winemaker Marcos Gamari has a dream-to grow the best varietal wines from their ideal growing place, no matter where in the world that is. With vineyards in Italy and France, it's time to set his sights on the Americas, preferably in Napa or Sonoma. But the American woman intrigues him with her tales of boutique wineries hidden in the Santa Cruz Mountains, not to mention her kissable mouth. California Wine is a story about two people who need to decide if they are willing to take a risk with each other. If you enjoy women's fiction with romantic elements, you'll enjoy this book.
