really liked it
bookshelves: fiction, delightful
Recommended for: lovers of wine and wine country

I saw the movie A Good Year, and it quickly became one of my favorite films. Because of this, I decided to read Mayle's novel of the same title, of which the movie was loosely based, I soon found out.

Nevertheless, I was not disappointed. The characters are charming and well developed. The conflicts present entertaining circumstances, and the resolution of the plot was really quite satisfying.

The most enchanting element of this novel, however, is its setting in Provence. I could easily envision the orange warmth of summer among the lime colored vines; I could taste the robust wine and feel its calming effect with every page I turned.

For lovers of wine and wine country, I recommend this read.
