How do you know if a first love is made to last?

Addison Monroe was eighteen when she fell for Jake Grady, a college student working on her family’s farm for the summer. With his sapphire eyes and killer smile, Jake could have had any girl in Lakeside, Georgia. But he wanted Addy, and for those brief, wonderful months—before circumstances drove them irrevocably apart—they belonged to each other.

Ten years later, Addy is engaged to a doctor and working in Atlanta as a physician’s assistant. Life feels full and satisfying. Yet memories of that long-ago summer and wine-flavored kisses are hard to shake. On a return visit to Lakeside, Addy crosses paths with Jake again, and soon finds herself at an unexpected crossroads. So much has changed, and Addy has chosen another route. And the magic of first love can never be rekindled...can it?

Get Tipsy on Strawberry Wine...you won't regret it (Tuesday, June 20, 2017)
Reviewer: Sandy

I have a confession to make. I love to read romance novels and chick-lit. I blame my mother for bringing Sandra Brown books home when I was younger. My favorite stories were the ones that made you feel like you were vicariously living through the female protagonist. The ones that made you catch yourself grinning when you didn't realize it or giggling when the male lead said something flirty. This is one of those books.

Strawberry Wine is a story about first love when you least expect it. It's about growing up and making choices. It's beautiful and messy and tugs at your heart. The author did such a wonderful job of making Addison and Jake come to life that I found myself rooting for them until the last page and days after I found myself thinking about them...wondering what they were up to as if they were real people. Just like this story, they were memorable and left an impression on me. This story is as intoxicating as its title and I encourage you to read it. I know you'll enjoy it as much as I did.

Beautiful Story! Beautifully Written (Saturday, February 25, 2017)
Reviewer: Karen

I absolutely loved “Strawberry Wine.” I found this book a fantastic blend of romance and drama. It captured my attention from the very first page. The lives of Addison and Jake told through their past, present and future was beautifully written.
The relationships Addison held with the other characters in the book some inspiring, some intense, made me laugh, cry and everything in between. I didn't want it to end.
This is definitely a must read.
