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.


Eight Hundred Grapes: A Novel - Laura Dave

Georgia is at her final wedding gown fitting when she spots her fiancé walking down the street with a woman and child.  Learning that her fiancé has been less than open with her, she runs back to her childhood home only to learn that her parents are splitting and selling their family vineyard to a competitor.  Georgia has a lot to sort out.


I enjoyed this book.  There are a lot of family secrets that come out when Georgia returns home.  Accusations are made and Georgia has to face up to some of them as others in the family have to face up to theirs.  It makes for interesting reading as Georgia keeps putting her problems on the back burner to deal with others' problems only to have them force her to face her own problems.  She needed their insights.


I liked most of the characters but not all.  I wasn't crazy about her fiancé, her brother Bobby, or her mother.  They were not warm, fussy people.  The ending is what was right for Georgia.
