Eight Hundred Grapes...with a Giveaway!




Eight hundred grapes. That’s how many grapes it takes to make a bottle of wine. Georgia Ford should know this; she grew up in her family’s vineyard. A week before her wedding, Georgia learns something about her fiancé so upsetting that she returns to her family’s vineyard to regroup, and discovers that the family she thought so untroubled and secure just might have some difficulties of its own.

This is a perfect read for summer. You know from page one that everyone is going to go through troubles, but that everything will be resolved by story’s end.

Now you can win a beautiful finished hardback copy of this book for your very own! And the book comes with a fun coffee mug as well! All you need to do is leave your e-mail in the comments (posted, of course, in an elusive way to thwart the baddies). 

I’ll pick one winner at random for the book and mug at the end of the month.

  10. 800 grapes? Imagine that ... can't imagine how long it would take me to eat that many vs. down a glass (or two) of wine! Love your giveaway, so much fun! Happy 4th of July! (readerrabbit22 at gmail.com)

  16. This sounds like a book I'd love to read. I make wine myself, though not with grapes. Just finished a batch of lychee wine. Use whatever is in season.
