Elle and Laurie are the last ones standing: they're single, they're not having babies any time soon and their weekends aren't filled with joyful meetings about mortgages. For Elle, this is fine. She likes her independent life, but Laurie wants love and she wants it now.
So when Laurie begs Elle to come with her on a singles holiday to a beautiful vineyard in Tuscany, Elle is reluctant. She has no intention of swapping her perfectly lovely life for someone else's idea of her Mr Perfect, but ten days under the Italian sun with her best friend and lashings of wine? How bad could that be?
Full of sultry summer nights, hilarious moments and plenty of adventure, You Had Me at Merlot will warm even the most cynical of hearts and have you believing in the magic of romance (and the power of a decent glass of wine).
You Had Me at Merlot had me right from the start, hook line and sinker. This is the perfect book to read on a summer afternoon with a glass of wine in one hand.
For starters, it’s set in Italy, which is an utterly gorgeous setting ever, and there is wine involved and lots of gorgeous romance. And a very handsome sounding man. What more could a girl ask for? I was GUTTED when I read the last page because it meant that this book was OVER! And I could have kept reading this book forever. Perhaps we can have a sequel maybe?
I fell in love with Italy all over again and this book had me packing for my (non-existing) holiday and picking out the best places to stay and some divine locations. I think that it is fair to say that this has become one of my favourite holiday reads. And may be next time I’ll read it while on holiday…
You Had Me at Merlot is a fun-filled book, which the right amount of romance and laugh out moments. If you’re going on holiday soon then this is one to pack in your suitcase and read.
