E-book Review: The Taste of Light (The Winemakers, #2) – Giovanna Siniscalchi

Goodreads Blurb: Portugal, 1872

Shadows can taste light…
A twist of fate brings them together. Anne glimpses in Pedro’s eyes a yearning for love that rivals her own, but the cynical Fidalgo isn’t the perfect prince of her dreams. Pedro craves Anne’s touch more than the air he breathes, but he is unwilling to soil his angel with the sins from his past.
A conspiracy is revealed…
A false accusation turns them into fugitives. Running from a treacherous enemy, they plunge into an ocean of intrigue to prove Pedro’s innocence. As their passion grows, Anne discovers that love isn’t the perfect matter of fairy tales. But can Pedro forgive himself for his past and allow Anne into his heart?

Final Notes: 4.55/5 Stars! I felt honored that this is the first novel an author reached out to me to review. This novel was one of the most original plots that I’ve read in a long time. Having the complicated love “triangle” was refreshing and a little ingenious. Ana’s desire to find real love, even with a pestering older brother, Pedro’s hesitation for Anna’s family, and his desire to clear his name, made me wonder if they would find each other in the end. Luckily I was not disappointed. I had to change the font so I could read it, though I love the cursive writing, but there was a couple of spelling errors. Yet that didn’t change how I enjoyed this novel and learned a little bit about the wine industry. A fast read, and I hope to get the first novel in this series. It was almost a 5 star read, I guess where I am not from the area, some of the language and customs was a little hard to understand, but it has to be perfect to be a 5 Star review, so you did a great job!

I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.

Until next time, AGirlandHerTablet is saying….. well, until next time!
