OK, I know I'm going to be in the minority here, but I did not like this book. I was excited to get a hold of a copy after reading Tricia Stringer's 'Table For Eight', but this offering has none of that book's charm.

Keely has travelled to Western Australia, obviously to get away from something in her past, when she finds herself in hospital, and then is at the mercy of a stranger. Euan runs a winery in the Margaret River with his son Flynn, and he kindly offers Keely a place to stay
Keely Mitchell was looking forward to her holiday in WA; to following her dreams and going where she wanted. But the day of her arrival in Perth, she had an unexpected medical emergency and it was only luck that had her remembering the note with the phone number in her jeans pocket. Heading to Margaret River was the last thing she thought she’d be doing, but recuperation was paramount and her respite at Levallier Dell Wines seemed fortuitous.

As Keely slowly regained her strength, her
Keely Mitchell has taken three months off from her teaching career in South Australia with the intention of traveling north up the coast of WA. Instead she finds herself recuperating from a medical emergency and accepts an offer from Euan Levallier, a friendly stranger she met on the plane, to come and stay with him and his son Flynn at his winery in Margaret River. As she recovers, she finds herself getting involved in the life of the town and helping out in the winery. She also can't help noti ...more

Over ten years ago, Tricia self published a short story which has now been refurbished into ‘Something in the Wine’. This story is set in the glorious Western Australian wine region of Margaret River. In essence, this is a sweet tale of learning to follow your heart.

This is an easy read, incorporating family dynamics and romance. I think the real enticement here though, is the wine growing region itself. Tricia beautifully captures the locality from the vines to the coast, including the flow of

My favourite of Tricia Stringers yet! Loved this book. Felt like I was right there in the story. Characters were so relatable. Just something about the end felt rushed...maybe I didn’t want it to end 🤔

This was a quick and easy read but Keely did annoy me.

If you’re looking for a straight rural romance then Something In The Wine is not the book for you. If, on the other hand, you are looking for a wonderful Australian rural story with romantic elements, something that is complex and layered and filled with intriguing secondary plots and well rounded characters, then look no further.
This book is not a fast read, but nonetheless it drew me into the lives of the family, friends and neighbours of the Levaliers. Set in Margaret River, Western Australi

I was a little bit disappointed with this read, I read to the end but not because it was grabbing my attention but I used it as a sleeping tablet to stop my brain before bed. You might think that is harsh but it's the truth and I give my true review of each book I read. The characters had the potential to be great but the storytelling was a bit slow and repetitive at times. I would not call it a rural romance at all it was just a rural story what I really loved with the setting of the story as i ...more

Keeley Mitchell is just starting out on her Australian adventure. At 27 years of age, she’s never lived away from home and she’s excited to leave her stifling life. But on her first night in Perth she is struck down with a medical condition. Not wanting to admit defeat to her parents, she remembered the kind gentleman called Euan on the plane giving her his contact details. So it’s on his winery property in Margaret River that she finds herself recuperating.
And here Keeley finds herself ca

Another great read by Tricia Stringer based at Margaret River in winemaking country. This book was about the slow burn romance of Keely Mitchell who is on holidays from South Australia and on the plane she meets Euan Levallier from Margaret River, and Marty and his mates, Steve and Mike. Keely becomes ill and is taken to hospital in Perth and has her appendix taken out whilst having a drink with Marty and co. Once they get Keely to the hospital they leave and continue with their holiday and thro ...more

Thanks to Beauty and Lace and Harlequin books for this copy of Something in the Wine to read and review.

This is my first read from author Tricia Stringer and I will be sure to read more after enjoying this book.
I found it a very easy read right from the start and Keely was a lovely character to follow on her journey to W.A. where she finds herself at the beautiful winery,
Levallier Dell belonging to the generous Euan and his son Flynn Levallier.

Keely escapes the trappings of her stressful job-life with a holiday around WA. Only nothing goes to plan, and she finds herself befriending Euan 'Scarecrow' Levallier Dell, which is mistaken for a romance by his aloof and distanced son Flynn. Ensuing attraction between characters and many hit and miss moments in between made for an entertaining read. Many likeable characters in the story added emphasis to what was a good read depicted against the backdrop of the Margaret River vineyards. Anothe ...more

This is my first read by this author and it had many ups and downs for me.
Overall I enjoyed the story but at times I think it dragged on. I guess I have no real interest in wine, I was just invested in the characters stories. Everyone seemed to be squabbling all the time, some lighter moments would probably have kept me glued to my kindle more.
It sounds like a beautiful area on the other side of Australia and the author gave us a wonderful insight to the country life.

Couldn't get into Table for Eight however this novel appealed due to the teacher struggling to overcome student behaviour in a much needed break from her job to the stunning depiction of the Margaret River winery.
A spoiled start to a holiday, the kindness of a true gentlemen, misconception about relationships and trouble next door all made for an escapism novel.
Full bodied and full of spirit, a great read.

This was an easy read, incorporating family dynamics, wine country and romance. I usually prefer a less meek lead, but it was an entertaining and light read for a night when I was up with an upset tummy.

Tricia Stringer lives in the Copper Coast region of South Australia with her husband and their assorted animals. This home base has proved a wonderful place to raise their three, now adult, children and has been a starting point for many a family holiday, camping in favourite Flinders Ranges spots or travelling to other states of Australia. She enjoys a variety of crafts and sipping the odd glass ...more
