Margaret Stokes is bitter. And not in the robust fine wine or tangy dark chocolate kind of way. She just got dumped, is fed up with her job as a glorified party-planner for the rich, and can’t possibly listen to one more veiled insult from her impossible-to-please mother. So she retreats to the comfort of her grandmother’s ramshackle bed and breakfast, where the wide open vineyards are filled with surprises, from the shockingly delicious wine to the aggravating yet oh-so-tempting man who makes it.

Ryan Camden’s easy approach to life encourages Margaret to loosen up and have a little fun, despite her better judgment. She resists the urge to micromanage every detail, embracing the welcome distractions of her surroundings and letting their relationship unfold at a natural rhythm. But when a health scare forces Grammy J to give up the B&B, Margaret begins to wonder if Ryan really is the man he promises—and whether the problems she tried so hard to escape ever really went away.

sourgrapesreviewI have fallen madly in love with Rachel Goodman and her Blue Plate Special Series!

In her sophomore work, Rachel Goodman takes us to the Texas Hill Country and gives us a sweet summer romance that is sure to satisfy the palate of romance lovers far and wide. 

Call me crazy, but more often than not, I always love the bitchy character in the story.  There is always more to her than meets the eye. Her snark is an armor that she wears to protect herself from the real reason as to why she became so bitchy…usually.  Margaret was a tough pill to swallow in From Scratch but I didn’t hate her, I really felt sorry for her. 

As Sour Grape opens, and we are let into her life, the good, the bad & the ugly, it was mostly ugly.  Poor girl, but as the story progresses we are introduced to an awesome cast of secondary characters and we meet RYAN!!  Oh Ryan, he is one for the books.  An easy going, sexy, southern boy with just the right amount of charm.  Ryan is swoonalicious!

So it is my recommendation for you all to pop open this sexy refreshment and pour a tall glass of this sweet Southern delight.  Sour Grapes is a delectable treat of down home hospitality, friendship, finding your true self and your true love. It was delicious!

I can’t wait to see what else Rachel has up her sleeve!!
