I have read a couple of books from this author and she keeps on surprising me with another great book. This is a contemporary romance with some mystery thrown in. I love romance that keeps on making you guess. This book is from the Resort Romance series but it can be read as a stand-alone. You can’t help but to fall in love with these characters. These characters kept me hooked all the way until the end. I devoured this incredible book in one day.

Wine Thief by Mary Billiter is the 5th book in the Resort Romances series and it, for me, the best, and most favourite book in this series so far!

To start, even though this book is part of a series you can read the book as a stand-alone. Moving on wards. This book as I said, as of right now, is my favourite in the series. All are good in their own right, but this one, this one takes the cake. Tony and Chole, they had this magical connection right from the start. It felt so real and grounded. Li

Wine Thief by Mary Billiter a four-star read that will have you reaching for your glass. This is the fifth book in the Resort romance series but they can all be read as stand-alone reads. I don’t know how to figure this review out as the book started so strong, but it seemed to drift a little and then came back to the strength I have seen in the other books of the series. This is witty and romantic and fun in a great way, it’s a very good read to while an evening away with along with a nice glas ...more

Wine and Mystery is a combination for a great read. Mary Billiter writes witty romance mystery books that are entertaining. Mary Billiter attention to detail is a gift for the reader you feel as if you are in every scene. I have read previous books by this author and love her books.

"After everything we've been through- it's finally over."
"No," he said with a tender kiss, "it's just the beginning."

I have been slowly reading my way through the Resort Romances Series from Mary Billiter and I must say they really have shown Mary’s work progressing in true perfection. I continuously think that the book I just finished was better than the last even when I didn’t think that they could get any better. That is truly a great thing to find in a series of novels.

Wine Thief by Mary Billiter is another great book by this author. I have read several other of her books and I enjoy each one. I love a romance book with a little mystery and intrigue thrown in to keep it interesting. This book is part of the Resort Romance series, but you do not need to read the other books in this series to understand this one. I do however recommend you read the other books in the series because they are great reads.

Wine Thief is book 5 in the Resort Romances series by author Mary Billiter. This is my 4th read in this series, but having missed Book 3 in this series, these books can be read as stand alone. These books flowed as books on their own and didn't need the others to support them, it did take me a while to get totally engrossed into this book, but eventually I was hooked.

This is a brilliant read, that flows and keeps you engaged until the end! This author continues to creates stories which are real

Wine Thief is part of the Resort Romance series by Mary Billiter, which is a collection of standalone stories set in hotels and resorts across America. Although there are characters and settings that find their way into multiple stories, they can all be read independently and each has a unique character to it.
As the title suggests, one thing that stands out about Wine Thief is the focus on wine and vineyards. The story opens with a four hour trip on the wine train – the perfect place for our her

The story Wine Thief by Mary Billiter is a wonderful book that I loved reading. It has a combination of mystery and romance. It is a book that I got lost in and didn’t want to put down until I had read the final page. I loved reading about the characters of Chloe and Anthony.

Wine Thief was a good 4 star read.
This story started off a little slow but I was eventually pulled in. I feel like we could have had a little less detail on the wine, although I really learned a lot about it.

Wine Thief by Mary Billiter is the fifth book in her Resort Romances series. All of the stories are standalone and I know it for sure as I read the fourth book before starting on the Wine Thief and yes, they are totally in their own rights!

Wine Thief by Mary Billiter is a brand-new author to me, so when I saw the cover for this story I jumped at the chance. As a lover of all things wine and vineyards, I was so excited to get the opportunity to review this story.

Having said that, I was a little disappointed with the story. While I love the descriptive narrative that Mary uses to describe the wine tour that our characters are on, I just felt over loaded with too much information, it was distracting from the story and made me feel ov

I give Wine Thief by Mary Billiter, 4 stars.

This is another hit from this author! Chloe needs to start over, a place where she isn't constantly reminded. So she moves from sunny California to wine country Northern California and takes a job as a wine educator. This is the opposite of what she's done in the past, but she needs this. On a wine train trip to educate her more, she meets Tony.

Big wine fan here, so, of course, I had to get my hands on this book! This is a new to me author and I thought the cover was sweet. The author has a way with words and is very descriptive. The storyline was interesting but rather drawn out.

I was excited at the beginning of the book as Chloe and her sister is doing a train wine tour in Napa Valley because well, wine and Chloe was just hired to be a wine educator…. Ummmm, how do I get that job… Sorry, moving on… This is where she meets Tony Mahon

WINE THIEF by Mary Billiter is one of those books that surprised me with how much I liked it. Don't get me wrong, I have absolutely enjoyed this author's other stories, but based on the blurb I thought this was going to be different than it was.
