ARC BOOK REVIEW...Summer in Napa (St. Helena Vineyard, #2) by Marina Adair

Six months ago, New York restaurant owner Alexis “Lexi” Moreau walked in on her husband, Jeff, and their sous chef mixing business with pleasure. Now, Lexi is back in her hometown of St. Helena, California, rebuilding her life and hoping to turn her grandmother’s patisserie into the bistro of her dreams. All she needs is luck, lots of hard work, and a way to avoid the thirty blind dates her matchmaking grandmother arranged. Enter Marco DeLuca — Jeff’s handsome, commitment-phobe best friend who has always had his sights set on Lexi. In high school, Marco convinced himself that Lexi was off-limits. And she still is, especially since Marco’s family’s wine business all depends on a deal with Jeff. But a fake summer romance is the perfect way for Lexi to distract the would-be suitors her grandmother has set up for her. A perfect way for Marco to realize she’s the only one that ever mattered. And a perfect way to fall deliciously in love.
Expected publication: May 14th 2013 by Montlake Romance

Never heard of Marina Adair before but saw this book available to view on NetGallery and decided to request it to view since it looked interesting.

"Summer in Napa" is all about second chances in love and following your dreams. 

The main character, Marina Adair, is cheated on by her boyfriend Jeff and seeks to rebuild her life. She meets up with Jeff's best friend Marco, who's always harbored a crush for Marina, and the sparks fly between them.

Now input a meddlesome grandmother, a family wine business in jeopardy, and two hearts on the line and you have the perfect the perfect mixture of what a "Summer in Napa" is all about.

I highly recommend this read!
