Book Review: 800 Grapes by Laura Dave

800grapes

Amazon | Goodreads

What is it about?

Georgia Ford returns to her parents vineyard when her life develops a major complication. Once there, she finds out that she’s not the only one going through some turmoil. This book is about relationships and the damaging effects of secrets.

Was it good?

It was a very enjoyable book. The written style was easy to sip up. See that? I made a drink reference because this book has a lot of wine in it. It has some wine making details that were very interesting to read about, but the drama is also interesting enough without the added educational bonus.

In fact, I almost decided to do this review in just grunting monkey like noises as I felt them throughout the book… page 12 “eep” page 88 “ooh” page 98 “agh!” but I lost track because the book was too interesting.

I would recommend this book as a good summer read. Despite the drama, it still feels easy to read and entertaining.

I’m personally not a big wine drinker. I usually just opt for a Riesling, but I can’t even remember which one I like because I buy them too infrequently. Maybe when I stop having babies I can develop a more sophisticated palate. What do you like to drink?

Happy Reading… and drinking!
