Sheila's Reads

I love to read. I am very eclectic in my reading but I especially enjoy erotica and erotic romance. I also like movies, live theater and concerts, hockey, and counted cross-stitch.


Fortune on Moon Lake (Love on the Lake Book 2) - Amy Gamet

Melanie is looking for a job and asks Rafael for one in the tasting room of the winery at Crescent Moon winery which he manages. The owner wants to sell the winery and Rafael wants to buy it but hasn't the money. Melanie is stuck in the past when her boyfriend Greg left. Will people get what they want or is it only dreams that won't come true?

I liked Melanie and Rafael. There is tension between them because of the past which may become part of the present. Each reads the other wrong and walk out without explanations. They both need to work on their communication skills. I enjoyed the setting. It was fun being in the Finger Lakes region. The winery and vineyard were good to show that life has ebbs and flow, slow times and fast times. I liked that Melanie is valued for what she can bring.

There is a lot that happens in a short period of time. So much that can change the production and profitability of the winery. The pace of the story shows that as well. When Melanie and Rafael are getting along it's smooth but when they are angry and upset, nothing seems to go well.

I'm interested in seeing what happens in the series and in the town. Good world building here.
