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. You really don't know the hows and the whys of the child molestation story, however, enough of a description is given that you can get the gist without having to read the first novel in order to enjoy the second.
I didn't mind the story, it was easy to read, had great flow and enough narrative and dialogue as to keep a good balance. I found Adam to be a bit unbelievable, given his age and his amount of depth in character and maturity, although, to have a kind, considerate man to share your life with, isn't a bad thing. I found Margaret's going back to work, as well as, going to sleep, while her son was missing was quite inappropriate, at least for myself anyhow. Others may not have found that a hindrance, but the lack of motherly instinct was present in Margaret, she came off more like a big sister than a parent.
Handel, Billie and Sally were excellently written and believable in their actions and attitudes, especially Sally. She gave the comedic edge to the book that was needed to have an edge to the book that was needed. I found the ending to be predictable and a bit cliched, but all in all, it was a good read that any mystery reader who likes some romance thrown in, would enjoy!
