With two roommates who act like the sisters she never had and a feisty landlord to stand in as the grandmother she always wanted, Sarah’s opens a café on the Sonoma Plaza. Her life changes the moment the little bell on the door rings and the notoriously sexy actor Jamie Santino, swaggers in. 
Jamie, one of the six Santino Brothers, of Napa Valley Winery fame, needs baking lessons for his new movie and Sarah is just the woman to teach him. Wine flows, their love affair heats up and a tempestuous femme fatale enters the scene. 
How can Sarah trust that Jamie isn’t acting when everything he says seems too good to be true? 

**Author's Note: Each Single Girls Wine Club novel can be read as a stand alone.** 


My Thoughts: This was a fun, sweet, and quick read. Sarah has had a rough time with relationships. She caught her fiance and her accountant on top of her pasty table.  Deciding to start all over again in Sonoma Valley with her best friends, she opens another pastry shop.  Jamie Santino is shooting a movie where he plays a pastry chef, Sarah decides to let Jamie work at her shop to get hands-on experience. There's an obvious attraction from the get go, but with so many misunderstandings happening between Sarah and Jamie. she finds it hard to believe and trust him. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It made me want to book a vacation in Napa and drink copious amounts of wine!
