Margaret Parker is a single mom who is just trying to do what is best for her son. Margaret and Davy live with Margaret's brother, Handel. Handel is a lawyer who is dating their next door neighbour and winery owner, Billie Fredrickson. Margaret also owns a small winery and labels her wine, 'Margaret's Wine', but it is her dream to run a major distillery and has steered her education in that direction.
Adam Fredrickson is Billie's younger brother who has returned from his drifter lifestyle to settle down and help Billie with her failing business. Upon arriving he first meets Margaret and sparks ignite as the two become drawn to one another. Though Margaret tries to steal her heart to his advances, she finds herself falling in love with Adam and his guitar playing, laid back attitude.
However, Margaret's past has come back to haunt her, with the return of Davy's horse breeding/racing, playboy of a father, Agnosto Salvatore. He needs a legitimate heir in order to inherit his father's vast and wealthy estate and he will stop at nothing to guarantee this, even stooping to hire Margaret and Handel's child molesting father to help put his machinations in motion.
When a body shows up during "Crush", the annual harvesting of the grapes, and Davy goes missing, everyone must deal with the horror that surrounds them. With emotions high and the future uncertain, everyone must pull together in order to maintain the right blend to achieve their success.
I didn't have the opportunity to read the first book of the series, 'Entangled', and though it wasn't truly necessary, it does play a part in the 'Crushed' back story, just enough, that you wish you had.Read more ›

Ms Brink sets up the suspense immediately and continues to up the ante throughout Crushed. Two parallel love stories add unexpected twists. The characters are well-drawn and believable, and the setting in the lush California Napa Valley is described with enough detail to bring the reader into it, but not over-written. The author weaves the details of wine making through the story narrative, providing bonus information to readers unfamiliar with industry.
Her villains are villainous enough for the most discriminating suspense reader--a father convicted of child molestation but released too soon from prison; an ex-lover who took advantaged of a rebellious teen struggling to get past her early years in a dysfunctional family. Her heroes and heroines are heroic enough for the most discriminating romance reader--a loyal brother and first-class attorney; a woman who has moved from victim to victor; a free-spirited young man searching for his place in life; a young woman who, as a single mother, has had to grow up too soon.
This novel is one of those stories that you enjoy most-- short enough to promise a quick resolution, long enough to provide all the action (romantic and suspenseful) that satisfies the reader's soul.
