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.

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.

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.

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!!

Other authors write sequels, but still have a satisfactory ending. I dislike when a story ends & I feel like I'm left in the middle of a chapter, and in some occasions the middle of a sentence. This story was interesting and entertaining, but the ending leaves you hanging. She should have just left off the car crash, & opened her next book with it.

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.

I liked this book because it held my interest. I did not read book 1, so I was a bit worried I might not connect with this one, book 2. I was wrong. Good writing and very few typos. The storyline was good, tight writing and believable characters.. I will get boo 1... especially since the first chapter of book 3 was at the tail end of this one and hooked me immediately.
