What happens when a corporate spy clashes with a woman he can't help but fall for? In Mary Billiter's witty novel of deception and heat, a red-hot suit and a beautiful academic are linked by a vineyard and the mystery surrounding its origins.
Chloe Dorsey places her belongings in storage, puts Southern California in her rearview mirror, and heads to her sister's home in Northern California for a fresh start. As one of the newly hired wine educators at the Napa Valley Point Resort and Winery, Chloe's knowledge of wine is as limited as her income.
Anthony "Tony" Mahoney has one objective—to locate the Mother Vine, the source of the rare and award-winning wine that can only be found at the Napa Valley Point Resort and Winery. His talent for stealing secrets is tested when he makes an unlikely alliance with the one woman who could destroy all his plans.
Can Chloe stop the wine thief, or will she have her heart crushed in the process?
A Great Read for a lover of Wine and Mystery
Wine Thief by Mary Billiter is the fifth story in her Resort Romance series and this series just keeps getting better and better. Following the story of Chloe Dorsey who is leaving behind the life she has in Southern California to move closer to her sister in Northern California. Along with the move and the fresh start, Chloe starts a job at the Napa Valley Point Resort, as a wine tour guide. While she doesn’t have allot of expertise on this subject she is willing to learn and her sister is ready to help her. Taking a wine tour with her sister to get a feel for the job, and acquire some new knowledge, Chloe meets Tony Mahoney. Tony is at the resort for a Bachelor Party, or so he says. There is something about Tony that draws Chloe in, but Tony is playing his cards close to his chest. But when Tony’s secrets come out can he trust that Chloe will not turn away from him or will Chloe turn him in for his misdeeds and walk away? The secrets and lies between these two will be hard to overcome but with work, faith and a little trust they can make a chance meeting worth a lifetime of something more. Billiter is a good staple for me when it comes to reading. I have read several of her stories in the past and have really enjoyed all of her characters and stories that she has brought to her readers. While this book is the fifth in a series, each book can be read as a standalone without giving away other plot lines which makes this an even better read. The only downside to this book is that the beginning can be a bit cumbersome with information about the different wines and building of the mystery aspect of the story. It was a very enjoyable read as the romance aspect made for a nice refreshing twist. If you are looking for a good author who will pull you into her stories with little work than this is one that you need to keep on your watch list!
