When the four Bonavera sisters inherit the family winery, they decide to keep it running and save their ancestral home. Now each sister must face her own destiny—and make a choice that will change not only her life, but the lives of those she loves.
Caterina’s plan of advancing from sous chef at one of New York City’s top restaurants isn’t working out, and she is soon back home at the family winery. But life goes from complicated to worse when she encounters surly building contractor Liam Dougherty, who seems to instantly dislike her. Will trusting Liam turn out to be another mistake when it comes to the men in her life, or is this where life has been leading her all along?
Foodies and wine aficionados may recognize Loudoun County’s famous wine country in northern Virginia, which Paris used as the backdrop and inspiration for the series. “I enjoy writing this series because it gives me a chance to share my love of food and wine with my readers,” said Patricia Paris. “It doesn’t matter if we are sharing filet of beef, or a simple meal of fruit and cheese with a baguette and a bottle of Cabernet Franc. Taking time to come together over a meal tells the person or people you’re with that they’re important to you and that you enjoy being with them. It’s a delicious way to say we care.”
Featured in Library Journal Magazine’s “Love Changes Everything” Romance Preview 2018 (October issue), Caterina is filled with invitingly rich characters and is the perfect weekend read. Fans of Susan Mallery’s Mischief Bay series or Nora Roberts’s Chesapeake Bay Saga are sure to find a new favorite series in the Bonavera novels.
Caterina is available worldwide in trade softcover (978-1-947727-62-5, 324 pages, $15.95), and ebook (978-1-948540-14-8, $7.99, PDF, mobi, epub) at all major booksellers. Order direct from Ingram, OverDrive, or publisher.
