For readers who appreciate contemporary women's fiction with a southern flair, history and even a little witchery, this is a book that shouldn't be missed. The ending was good and leaves a lot of possibilities for future installments. I'm looking forward to where the stories will lead.
Taylor knows how to weave a southern story with layers of emotion, history, and human dynamics, as well as delivering riveting crime thrillers under Mary Burton. You have to love an author who can juggle a number of genres, while pulling out "all the stops" across many genres.
Adele “Addie” Morgan did not have a great childhood and finally finds her happiness at a vineyard and the love of a good man, Scott, the owner. She loves her new life, her job, and she of all people, deserves to find happiness.
However, Addie’s life is uprooted when she is called to return home to help the family in Alexandria, Virginia —a life and a past should would rather forget. Unfortunately a painful family past--her mother and sister suffer from a mental illness, bipolar.
Addie has spent the last seven years trying to escape this curse, after an accident. Addie is torn with demands from Aunt Grace and sister, Janet. From her sister’s pregnancy, baby, ex-husband, meds, drama, mental illness, ups and downs, and a failing family business--plus Scott knows nothing about her past, or family.
Torn between family, loyalty, love, history, and the family's disturbing mental illness-- the demands and tolls, roller-coaster; dealing with the heart breaking disease and trying to escape this drama-filled life.
Taylor captures the emotions of the heart from family tragedy to joy, with beautiful writing from talented Southern storyteller—with intriguing history and mystery. We also hear from familiar characters of the Union Street Bakery series, which was delightful. If you have not read the Union Bakery Series, highly recommend.
Cannot wait for the next book in the Alexandria Series: The View from Prince Street, Coming Jan 5, 2016. (Fortunate to receive an ARC and dying to jump ahead to read)! One of my favorite authors, both as Mary Ellen Taylor (women’s fiction) and Mary Burton (crime, mystery, thriller). She has a rare talent --loving her writing style!
So, bummer–all in all, not a winner for me.
Also worth noting–this book is the first of a series, with the ending leaving the door wide open for more. Meaning that while the most important plot threads are tied in a knot, many more (especially in the relationship arena) are left to develop in future novels in the series.
