Wednesday Wine and A Book
Today's blog is for the grown and sexy adults +21 who like to enjoy an adult beverage along with their favorite author. It's 5pm somewhere!
I wanted to do a bit of a light hearted wine blog maybe once or twice a month on Wednesdays where I suggest a wine or adult beverage to go along with a book or story to read. Sounds fun and hopefully a little interesting. I am not a wine connoisseur of any sort, but I have noticed in many twitter bios that drinking wine and writing and or reading a good book was a shared favorite pasttime among writers and readers. So to you, wine lover and the many avid readers who like to be spirited away after a long hard day of life...this blog is dedicated. I am still trying to figure out an angle. This week it is easy to see the connection, wine and a book titled vineyard.... but not quite what you expect.
Wednesday Wine and A BookI picked up this bottle of wine at Aldi's for $4.49 (recommended by the cashier) and the book is only $4.99 on Kindle. Make it a nice evening retreat for under $10.
Moiselle Sweet Red and The Vineyard by Michael Hurley
Flavors of black cherry, raspberry jam and slight notes of Concord. Pairs well with spicy dishes and desserts. Throw in a few pieces of dark chocolate and a bowl of fresh strawberries (Publix has them on sale 2/$5.00) and settle into this story about old money, young passion and ancient mystery. While you are uncorking, listen to the sample from the audible audio edition. Available in Hardcover and Paperback
Dory Delano, Charlotte Harris, and Turner Graham have been drifting through life since their days as roommates at Smith College, ten years ago. Dory is resisting taking the reins of her family's legacy and fortune even as she relishes the fabulous lifestyle it affords her in the fashionable seaside resort of Martha's Vineyard. She invites her old friends to join her for a summer on the Vineyard in hopes of rediscovering the innocence of old days and healing new wounds. But hidden in their midst and unknown to all but a few, a reclusive-some say dangerous-fisherman wanders alone, fueling wild speculation about his purpose and his past. None of these women can imagine the events their encounter with the fisherman will set in motion, the shadow he will cast over their destinies, or the transformation that awaits the world they know.
Hailed as addictive, escapist reading and deliriously satisfying by Kirkus Reviews I give you The Vineyard by author Michael Hurley. You're Welcome!
