Crushed is book two in the Fredrickson Winery Series.

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.

The plot was convoluted, which was OK, but seemed to frequently lose direction. And characters and events popped up out of nowhere, without explanation or introduction. Ms. Brink does seem to have insight into wine production, which was very interesting. However, the author's command of the English language is poor. This is obviously not the author's first work, so the bad editing is inexcusable.

This book was everything I thought it would be, full of suspense and twists and turns to the end. It was not what I expected as far as the ending goes. I found I really liked some of the characters and really disliked a few. This book is definitely worth the read! I had a very hard time putting it down while I was reading so I finally gave up. Don't miss this awesome book, Barbara has a way of writing that draws a person in. It is nice to read a book that is clean and refreshing. I love the way Barbara included Billie quite a bit in her sequel, so many authors don't do that. Definitely a MUST READ!!

I very much enjoyed the first book, but this one was more about how to make wine than it was a romance, murder/mystery, procedural, drama, whatever it's supposed to be classified as. The writing was grammatically good, and the story's pieces were put together in their most basic acceptable locations; however, that's the problem. The story was basic, the love was not heartfelt, the characters and situations were very predictable and quite frankly, the first third of the book is a waste of time. I almost didn't finish reading it because it was SUCH A SLOW START!! Even after the story picked up and started to move, it just didn't provide enough intrigue. Again, good writing, but very basic.

Just like her first book, Entangled, Barb Brink has spun a mesmerizing story. A new central character and old friends from the Fredrickson Vineyards continue the story of Billie, Handel and their families. Just when I thought I knew what would happend, a new twist was thrown into the plot. Barb always manages to catch me unaware. I couldn't put it down. The good news is the end of this book leads to another story, which will hopefully be coming soon from this creative woman.

Format: Paperback
Reviewer: Judy Nickles
Source: ebook provided by author for review

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.
