Eight Hundred Grapes by Laura Dave
Synopsis from Goodreads: There are secrets you share, and secrets you hide…
Growing up on her family’s Sonoma vineyard, Georgia Ford learned some important secrets. The secret number of grapes it takes to make a bottle of wine: eight hundred. The secret ingredient in her mother’s lasagna: chocolate. The secret behind ending a fight: hold hands.
But just a week before her wedding, thirty-year-old Georgia discovers her beloved fiancé has been keeping a secret so explosive, it will change their lives forever.
Georgia does what she’s always done: she returns to the family vineyard, expecting the comfort of her long-married parents, and her brothers, and everything familiar. But it turns out her fiancé is not the only one who’s been keeping secrets…
My Thoughts: Eight Hundred Grapes is one of the best novels I have read in a while. It was on my Summer Reading List and it definitely did not let down my expectations. Bonus points for being a shorter book to help me through my reading list! For the last several years, Ryan and I have had a big California trip all planned out. We just haven’t quite found the time to go yet. This book made me want to visit northern Cali SO much more. It sounds so beautiful. I loved the way all of the relationships panned out in this book ans the story gripped me from the first page. It was an addictive book that I couldn’t wait to read every night. I would definitely recommend it to women of all ages! Oh, and I gave it 5 stars which I haven’t done in a while. 🙂
