3.5 stars rounded up. This was a fun, light read. I feel like it could easily be made into a Hallmark movie. After living in the Finger Lakes region for college and visiting many of the wineries, I was excited to finally read a story set there (it is as beautiful as it's described in the book). Although the concept of a big-city professional losing her job and moving to a small town isn't new to contemporary romance stories, Jo McNally does a nice job of making Whitney Foster's conflicting emoti ...more

This was my very first read by Jo McNally & I was quite pleasantly surprised! Any winery set book is going to get my attention , Bonus is a match making bookclub . I was immediately drawn to all the characters in this story ! Whittney & Luke were complex characters who were bound to clash the way they did however sweet grieving Helen was a force to be reckoned with! The angst between Luke &
Whittney was written very well . Helens grieving process was beautifully portrayed also. I high

Slow Dancing at Sunrise is the fun, witty story of Whitney Foster. Whitney had her life planned out until she lost her job. After being made a scapegoat by the partners in her firm, Whitney ran to her aunt’s winery. Instead of the bustling place she remembered, it looked worn down & abandoned. Whitney & the winery manager, Luke had their work cut out for them. They needed to get everything ship shape before the summer season.

I loved this story! It was fun, flirty & entertaining. I h

This was a sweet book. I kind of wish that I got to go to Finger Lakes and enjoy the scenery from the way that it was described.. Whitney is starting over in a small town which is not easy since she is big city girl, there she meets Luke and he was ok, at first I wasn't crazy about him but eventually he won me over. We have some some laughs with secondary characters which help round out the story..Grab a copy and Enjoy!

Another wonderful story! Whitney comes to help her aunt Helen at the winery. Luke is the handyman at the winery. Helen and her book club friends dabble in matchmaking not successful by any means but full of good intentions. The characters are relatable and the story flows effortlessly as you're rooting for love and hope to be restored in Rendezvous Falls. I received an ARC of this and volunteered to review it.

A nice story, a lovely setting, an engrossing and entertaining book: I liked this book and I'm happy I read it because I discovered a good author.
I look forward to read other books by this writer.

Many thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for this ARC, all opinions are mine.

This was a very fun and romantic read. An enemies to lovers romance that offers likeable characters, intense attraction, steamy chemistry, drama, humor, sweetness, heart and delightful banter. Add in a charming setting and a welcome cast of secondary characters and it is easy to understand the appeal of Whitney and Luke's story. Of my own accord I am posting a forthright review.

New author for me, but I visited quite a few wineries in the Finger Lakes region of NY when my son was attending college in Rochester. The setting and story was what attracted me and what a great story it was!

The characters and settings came alive with the author's descriptions. Both Whitney and Luke each have hurdles to overcome to open their hearts to true love. When you add in Aunt Helen with her crazy book club octogenarians adding their shenanigans to the story, you'll find yourself laughin

I write the same kind of romances I like to read – stories about characters facing real-life challenges with real-life consequences. The stories are emotional, but still have humor, and love always finds a way to pull the characters through together.

I live in coastal North Carolina with 100 pounds of dog and 200 pounds of husband – my slice of the bed is very small. When I’m not writing or reading
