Thirteen years ago, Natalie lost a part of herself when her twin sister died. Will traveling back to the family winery finally put the memory to rest, or will it completely destroy her?
When Natalie Mitchell learns her beloved grandfather has had a heart attack, she’s forced to return to their family-owned winery in Sonoma, something she never intended to do. She’s avoided her grandparents’ sprawling home and all its memories since the summer her sister died—the awful summer Natalie’s nightmares began. But the winery is failing, and Natalie’s father wants her to shut it down. As the majority shareholder, she has the power to do so.
And Natalie never says no to her father.
Tanner Collins, the vintner on Maoilios, is trying to salvage a bad season and put the Mitchell family’s winery back in business. When Natalie Mitchell shows up, Tanner sees his future about to be crushed. Natalie intends to close the gates, unless he can convince her otherwise. But the Natalie he remembers from childhood is long gone, and he’s not so sure he likes the woman she’s become. Still, the haunted look she wears hints at secrets he wants to unearth. He soon discovers that on the night her sister died, the real Natalie died too. And Tanner must do whatever it takes to resurrect her.
But finding freedom from the past means facing it.
This is the second book I have read by Catherine. I loved the first one and couldn’t wait to read this one. She has a unique way of writing a book that is easy to read yet deeply emotional. This book is no exception.
Natalie is dealing with a lot of junk. She isn’t too sure about God and I just kept wanting her to figure out that He is the one who can ultimately heal her of the wounds from her past.
Tanner sure wasn’t very nice to her at first but I love how they got drawn together and then it was like the pull was undeniable, even though they both tried to deny it.
This book is just so rich and engaging, I didn’t want to stop reading. If you are looking for something that will touch your heart this is a great one.
