What worked so well with this book is that there was a lot of incentive for both characters to behave cruelly and immaturely, but they didn't. Put into a very difficult position, they earned their respect from each other and made the best of the situation. Watching them fall in love was a pleasure because they were both screwed-up yet good people who deserved their happy ending. And what a well-written happy ending it was.
Jackie Braun did her research when it came to the technicalities of owning and running a vineyard, and I appreciated all those touches of realism that brought the setting and the situations to life. She really transports the reader there.
This was my first book by this author and I'm very impressed.
Jaye Monroe's entire life has been turned inside out when her father dies and his will is read. Alongside her father, Jaye has built the Medallion wine brand with her heart and soul. Her father's will turns the winery and vineyards over to her step-mother and gives Jaye her step-mother's house with all the antiques and items she despises. Jaye's step-mother makes matters worse by selling the vineyards and company to an outsider, Zack Holland. Zack, heir to a renowned prize-winning California winery, wants to strike out on his own and forget the pain of his family and past. When he encounters Jaye, a strong woman and a bit of a tomboy, he is dazzles by her looks, intelligence and spirit. Can the two of them work together for the good of Medallion when their ultimate business plans conflict so? When their physical attraction can no longer be denied, will they be forced to choose between love and business?
In MOONLIGHT AND ROSES, Jackie Braun creates emotional depth at the same time that the conflicting business interests of the hero and heroine create a fun, suspenseful romantic conflict. Readers will appreciate the strong intelligent Jaye as a heroine whose spirit shines in all she does. Zack, a dreamer and a realist, is a perfect match for Jaye as he values what is most dear to her but also adds his own vision to the business. The author's meticulous research on wine varieties and viticulture grounds this romance with an interesting backdrop for wine enthusiasts and neophytes alike. Jaye and Zack's growing attraction brings them together and creates a more expansive vision, not only of each other, but also of the business. The initial emotional devastation of the will's reading finds the perfect ending as Jackie Braun combines business and romance in a narrative with an expansive view that includes a tribute to both family and independence. The narrative style flows smoothly while providing delightful surprises. Jackie Braun's MOONLIGHT AND ROSES is a delightful romance on all levels from emotional content to stylistic form.
