Wow. Just wow. This book is an intense roller-coaster of emotions and incidents, and I enjoyed every minute of the ride! The author has a very fluid writing style, and the paragraphs and chapters mold beautifully into each other. I loved the exotic locales that posed as backdrops in the story, and the choice of having an artist, a wine producer (I'm sure there's a better word for that) and a pilot, contribute to the ethereal atmosphere that runs through the book. What I liked best, however, was ...more

Gorgeous locations, interesting, creative characters and a marriage in trouble. I was in! Samantha Wood's lovely easy style takes us effortlessly through the story where we learn how communication - or the lack of - can make or break a relationship. This is terrific Australian fiction, with heart. Enjoy! ...more

4 ½ stars from me. I loved this book - from the title to the cover to the textures in the words. It’s an emotional roller coaster and yet I felt as though I knew Julia & wanted to be there giving her the tough love she needed, pouring her wine & chatting over art. Thanks Samantha... just fabulous.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book; from the moment I saw the gorgeous cover, to the final page. The characters seem truly authentic and highlight just how easily misunderstandings can occur within relationships. It was a lovely reminder that there are two sides to every story and what you think you see/know is not always what is actually unfolding. This book is well crafted and easy to read & one I am absolutely prepared to recommend.

This book is a really good read. The story flows smoothly and I found myself lost in the drama of the 3 main characters. If you like wineries, country vistas, inner city living and romance you will enjoy this book.
I look forward to more stories by Samantha Wood.
