Loire Valley, 1895. When 17-year-old Sara Thibault's father is killed in a mudslide, her mother sells their vineyard to a rival family, whose eldest son marries Sara's sister, Lydia. But a violent tragedy compels Sara and her sister to flee to New York. Philippe Lemieux has arrived in California with the ambition of owning the largest vineyard. When he receives word of his brother's death in France, he resolves to bring the killer to justice. Sara has travelled to California and when she encounters Philippe in a Napa vineyard, they are instantly drawn to one another, but Sara knows he is the one man who could return her family's vineyard to her, or send her straight to the guillotine.

This is the first in a series - I really enjoyed reading this novel and I look forward to reading the sequel entitled The California Wife.

Thoroughly enjoyed. Intrigue, building oneself up by one's bootstraps, romantic twist frought with obstacles, loads of historical information about early vineyards in California!

A perfect beach read. Historical/romantical/tragical :)
