Wine and cheese have always been an award-winning combination. Consequently, so are Stella and Jason. Stella is a tad shy and Jason knows what buttons to push in order to bring her out of her shell, both in and out of the bedroom. They spend lots of time together and their friendship evolves into a sultry love affair. In addition, Stella's honesty gives Jason the push he needs to mend fences with his family. Their closeness during childhood, is what sets the foundation for a future of love and happiness.
Rendezvous in Point Reyes is both a charming and passionate novella. The author's descriptions of the California scenery is tangible and romantic. This story is the third book from Ms. Barrett's West Coast Holiday series and it can be enjoyed as a standalone. If you are in the mood for a romance with a loving couple, an interesting plot and some truly yummy cheese delights for the foodie in you, check this one out.

A fun and short read.
This is the third book in the series, and this time we have Stella and Jason’s story.
Stella needed to escape her hometown for a few days, trying to deal with her divorce from a while back and pretty much everyone looking at her with pity. Because of this, she usually hides herself in work, work, work. It’s only when she gets to Point Reyes and bumps into Jason, an old friend of the family, that she realizes that she needs more than work in life.
I liked Stella, she was dealt a crappy hand in life, but she tried to make the best of it. The thing is, she was always pretending to be Ok with it, but more and more that pretending was eating at her. I really wanted her to move on and do great things in life.
Then came Jason, a family friend who’s always been in love with her. He just never told her. Jason also had a lot of issues, particularly with his family, which made him want to work extra hard to have the life he really wanted.
I also liked Jason, with everything he had, he really was just trying to follow his own path and make it on his own. He was actually successful, just not in the way his parents wanted.
Loved them together and how they pushed each other not only to fulfill their dreams, but also to be better. They both needed people who believed in them.
This was a short story, but very nice and didn’t feel rushed at all. Not sure there will be more books in the series, but if there are, I’ll be sure to read them.

Prior to the story I hadn't read any novels of the West Coast Holidays. I find this to be slightly disappointing because this novel did have many of the traits that I love about a romance novel including a handsome hero and a heroine that needs to be brought of her shell. Continuing with the romance I think it was the perfect holiday retreat. It was nice to breakaway from my previous reading of historical fiction and into an upbeat, contemporary romance that I think readers will find likable.
However I think what stood out to me the most was the author's writing. I was highly impressed with my first introduction to Barrett as an author. I found the backdrop of the plot to reflect the carefree moments of getting lost in love in a beautiful location without the scenic views being too heavily developed and so I will be keeping a sharp eye on Barrett in the near future.
As for the faults of the novel I think I would have much preferred that both Stella and Jason meant under different circumstances. There was nothing actually wrong with reuniting with your best friend's sister but I feel like that this trait is well worn out in the modern world of writing romance. As a reader I crave a more divergent plot or even romance and perhaps that is something that Barrett will include in future novels.
I think as a whole I would recommend this book to anyone who is genuinely looking for a fun romance that can transport themselves into a seashore nature resort because this book will certainly do just that.
