Sweet Stories of Vinegrove FREE! WIN! PREORDER!


Christmas Country Wishes

A sweet holiday love story in a small town 

in Washington Wine Country. 

Dakota Timmons, a registered nurse, leaves the bustling city life for small town comfort in Washington’s wine country. As a child, she wished for a white Christmas. As an adult, her wish remains the same along with a new one. Vinegrove is exactly what she needs. She only hopes she’s what the doctor ordered. Or that he at least accepts her shocking news. 

Avoiding an accident by seconds on her way into town introduces Dakota to Tristan Hart. Instant attraction makes them both think about love for the first time in their demanding careers. He calls her Miss Country Girl and in her mind she calls him Mr. Stetson. Under his Stetson, this man has the most piercing eyes, a striking blue-green combination. They remind her of the Pacific tropical seas. 

She’s absorbed in thought to meet the man she’d changed her zip code for, but she’s reminded of Tristan when she joins her new friends for a wine and chat night. A basket is placed on her lap. She’s to pick a name from it and then ask him out. A wild idea but she agrees to play a game called The Love List. To her surprise, she picks Tristan Hart. Now the man she’d changed her zip code for 
isn't the only man on her mind.

The Love List

Four sweet, short stories about small town romance... and wine! 

Sept 23-27

The Love List Series 

Love Uncorked- Jennifer Conner 

When Tegan Taylor's plans to meet single, local man falls flat, she's afraid her pick for 

The Love List is a bust. But, when handsome Australian cowboy, August, shows up, 
things may take a turn for the better. 

Love Found Me - Sharon Kleve 

When it’s Chloe Miles turn to pick a name out of The Love List she didn’t expect to find true love. She just wanted to go on a date with a nice, available guy. Not one who drank too much, or was unemployed and wanted to stay that way. Or especially one who didn’t know what monogamy means. 

Mitch Brodin didn’t know his heart was in the hands of The Love List. His Fate was set the moment he set foot into Roy’s Pet Rescues looking for advice on how to care for new born kittens. 

Chloe is vivacious, unpredictable, and tons of fun, while he is methodical, predictable, and well… cynical. He surely hadn’t planned on falling in love. But that’s what you get when 

you’re not looking for love. 

Blind Tasting - Angela Ford 

Dr. Rebecca Miller is devastated over her fiancé’s affair...with her best friend. 
Country charm is the best medicine. Along with a good friend and a bottle of wine. 
In the heart of wine country, four friends spice up their book club and create The Love List. 
Love is the last thing on Becca’s mind until she’s matched with Chase Tanner. 

Chase discovers the love list and believes to be fooled. 
Can Becca convince him she really does love him? 

Building up to Love - Joanne Jaytanie 

A small town can be a friendly place to call home and an impossible place to find a date. A shop owner starts a singles-mingle but only has three attendees—not a single man in sight. The women continue to meet, and change their name to The Love List. Each write names of single men and drop them into a basket. The Love List seems a success as each of the women finds their true love, except Laura. 
She is certain the basket is cursed. 

Travis Jerome is new to town. He jumps at the chance to work on Laura’s B&B remodel, to once again have the feel of a hammer in his hand. For something to last a lifetime it must start with a 
strong foundation and build up from there.
