Love In The Wine Country

Can she trust a man who broke her heart?
Spunky Beth Sawyer is determined to save a debt-ridden historic house she inherited from her grandmother. The Victorian mansion might be spared foreclosure if she can get a handful of cranky boarders out in time to open a bed and breakfast. Instead they’ve declared war and enlisted the aid of a man who still holds a piece of her heart.
After a dangerous assignment nearly takes his life, investigative reporter Aiden Reynoso limps home to Santa Marta to recover and rethink his career. He craves peace. Instead he finds chaos and a sexy new landlady, one he reluctantly left years ago after a brief fling.
The cliff-side mansion guards its secrets well, and so does Beth. Her beloved grandmother had an obsession. If revealed, it will ruin her reputation in a town that revere’s her memory. But the clock is ticking and Beth needs an ally. Can she trust a man who once broke her heart or is she destined to fight alone while her dreams turn as sour as spoiled wine.
A delightful, feel-good story.
Beth and Arden were lovers in the past but then they went their own ways.
Now life has brought them back together. The seeds of love had never died in either of them.
However, trouble is on the horizon for Beth. She’s in danger of losing her beautiful home. It turns out her beloved and deceased grandmother had a serious gambling addiction, which Beth is trying desperately to hide from the world.
Arden left Beth years before because he wished to travel the world as a reporter, only his last assignment almost got him killed, so he’s returned to the same quaint town that Beth lives in.
Without sharing the details, let me say, this story could have gone in many ways. You just don’t know until you get there. But rest assured you will have a fabulous time, fall in love, and get some “wow! I didn’t see that coming” moments and you leave with really nice HEA.
Award-winning author Pamela Gibson grew up loving books, history, and small towns. Her first career was a newspaper reporter, but when she returned to college to get a master’s degree, it was in public administration which eventually led to jobs running cities…not as an elected official, but as a city manager, the chief appointed one.
Writing was still her passion and when not busy—with the activities of two children and a lot of volunteer work—she was contracted to write several books on local history. Taking an early retirement at the urging of her very supportive husband, she turned to fiction and began writing the happy ending novels she loves to read.
