Review: Sour Grapes by Rachel Goodman
Uncork this delectable Texas Hill Country romance from the critically acclaimed author of From Scratch, the “smart, sexy, and funny” debut that “piles on the Southern charm” (Publishers Weekly).
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.
Rachel Goodman has wrote another hilarious book in Blue Plate series. In the first book in the Blue Plate series, Margaret was dumped that she struggle to find herself in Sour Grapes.
I have to admitted that I did not like Margaret at all in the first book of Blue Plate series. She has always seems so stuffy and up struck that she needed to loosen up. But I got to know more about her in Sour Grapes that I definitely understand why she has acted like that. Margaret has a expectation from the beginning of her upbringing is being the most perfect women to the perfect rich man that her mother has indicated throughout her life. But Margaret has finally done of acting all perfect that she ditch her life to the her grandmother bed and breakfast. I definitely admire how determined Margaret is when she needed a change that she is willing to find herself but it will take some time for her to figure it out especially Ryan influence.
Ryan is sexy man that he definitely takes notice of Margaret from day one. I definitely want a Ryan in my life but he seems to make problems go away from his charming side. He may be determined to get Margaret to loosen up but he will start to fall for her too.
Their relationship will get closer and complicated that I definitely root for them to communicate what they want from each other. I definitely want Ryan for myself but he is definitely perfect Margaret.
Sour Grapes is the perfect romance read that it will make you addicted to Rachel Goodman books. Four Star!
