    • I had to really sit down and take a deep breath before writing this review….Maybe I needed a few drinks before reading this and I would have liked it more. I honestly have to say that this book was seriously one of the worst books I have read in a very long time. I do not know where to start. First, the paragraphs had me so confused because one moment it would be talking about one character and the next here we were in conversation with two different characters. This book is about three women [...]

    • I found the story and characters to be relatively interesting. Unfortunately, it was in DIRE need of editing. I'm not sure if the issue was a formatting failure as it appeared on my Kindle, or if the problem was inherent in the book, but at points it was nearly impossible to follow because the point of view changed nearly every other paragraph at times with no indication that suddenly you were reading about someone else, somewhere else, somewhen else. It was confusing and broke up the flow of th [...]

    • Sorry, it is just one star as I found this book very difficult to read because of the sudden switches of scenery and characters which were not marked in any way (i.e. as you are reading about one character the following sentence would be about someone else in a completely different scene). The story itself was not bad. Incidentally, I read the Kindle edition.

    • I loved reading this book. Three women, one bar and three different reasons for buying it. Single mother Sarah needs a home for her children, Claire's an ambitious business woman. For wealthy Gaynor the wine bar is just one more amusement. Or Is it?The three women had opened Greens wine bar with freshly stripped floor boards and newly painted. Claire and Sarah spent hours poring over recipe books. On their big opening night they were rushed of their feet meeting and greeting and getting drunk is [...]

    • I have read Jane Wenham-Jones before I found this little chick-lit book for free on . However, they were her how-to-write non-fiction books. While they gave me an idea of her writing style, they gave me no indication on she does fiction writing. I mentioned this was a chick-lit book, and it is, but it's a very modern one. The majority of the book is set in a wine bar owned by three ladies: Sarah (the head cook), Claire (the one with all the business sense), and Gaynor(the one with style and mone [...]

    • I've heard mention of Jane Wenham-Jones' name a lot recently - I know she does a lot of workshops and writing holidays etc. SO I thought it was time I read some of her work - and sadly I wasn't impressed. This book is about three very different women who buy into a bar. Each has their own reason for wanting to be involved with the business, but it seemed to me that one person got landed with all the work while the other two spent their time swanning round drinking the profits! Very annoying Any [...]

    • I was on the verge of giving up on this book at about 10%. My mum, who recommended it to me, told me to wait till 25% to make my mind up, and I'm very glad I did.There are a lot of characters at first but the important ones have taken centre stage by the end of the first quarter. I don't see why so many names were dropped in the opening chapter when some characters are mentioned only in passing after that but that could just be me.I enjoyed Gaynor and Sarah's stories; Claire was a little neglect [...]

    • I had read some reviews on this book before I started reading and noticed some other reviewers had commented on the editing. I didn't think it could be that bad but I was wrong! Unfortunately I found it difficult to read as I was getting very confused.I did however enjoy the fact this book was set it in Broadstairs. Being from Kent and the fact Broadstairs is my favourite seaside town made the book more interesting to me and I found it easy to imagine all the places the author described.I liked [...]

    • 2.5 starsI didn't really get this book. The editing wasn't great, misprints etc aplenty but the biggest issue for me was how the dialog switches all the time, I didn't know who was speaking a lot of the time, or where they were supposed to be. It's not really my normal choice of genre but downloaded it to my kindle as it was free. I wouldn't be happy had I paid for this. It's about three women who buy a wine bar together. Claire runs the show basically, without her Greens would've gone bankrupt, [...]

    • I enjoyed this, and it was a cute story however the author didn't seem to know where her focus was. Although there were vague snippets of Sarah's life, and even smaller snippets of Claire's life, the author seemed to favour Gaynor's story. This could have been written in a much more mature manner, focussing equally on all three and intertwining them cleverly. Potential stories were hinted at - Sarah's possible drug problem and Claire's issues with her father, however these were very hastily tied [...]

    • This book was soooo slow to get going, far too much detail & background for me, especially as there was the sudden surprise part way through about "Gabrielle" which I had guessed from early on, perhaps that is a reflection on the company I keep rather than the book though. It was probabl;y too long a story to fit into a magazine story, but I felt there wasn't enough to warrant a novel of this length. It could have been about half the size & still told the story. Good tale though with an [...]

    • E um bom livro: Adoro quando a autora da nome de vinhos aos capitulos e depois descreve o vinho que ira coincidir com o que se passa nesse capitulo. A linguagem inicialmente e muito pesada ate, digo eu, dificil de compreender para o nao nativo no ingles, mas depois disso, o discurso tornasse mais leve e simples. A autora surpreende mas como todas as historias de amor tudo acaba bem. Torna se previsivel mas ficasse agarrada ao livro ate ter a certeza que isso acontece.

    • Love JWJ's accessible style. A real page-turner. She addresses the characters' problems with warmth, insight and humour. Part of the plot was predictable but this didn't stop me racing towards the finish-line, to find out exactly how it would end. Plus i would have liked to know more about Claire, but again, this didn't detract from my enjoyment of the complete story. Sorry when i reached the last page and am holding out for a sequel!

    • Three quite different friends open a wine bar together so plenty of scope for delving into each of the characters’ lives. Claire is the business brains. Cook and single mother, Sarah, has a difficult ex and finds it increasingly hard to cope with life. Gaynor is the novel’s central player who, on the surface, appears to have a perfect life, but everything is about to turn on its head when her marriage is in question and she meets up with the cheerless Sam.

    • A bit slow going. A very easy on the brain book to read which is handy for dipping in and out of during night feeds with a baby. Its not the worst book I've ever read by a long way but it also is far from the best. I cant quite put my finger on what exactly I dislike. Major factor was it didn't grab me and make me not want to put it down.

    • I'm having a hard time with all the British colloquialisms. I also find it difficult to believe that three women who don't know each other all that well would buy a business together. I will read another 50 pages and if I'm not hooked, I'm setting it aside.Tried to read it, just couldn't wade through it - there was not enough to hold my interest

    • I agree with other posts about the breaks between characters not being clear enough although I also have to say that this didn't make a huge difference to my reading experience! As a light beach read this was a good book! The surprise was rather entertaining! And I do love a happy ending from a light read! Will defo pass this onto my mum!!

    • A bit confusing at times (ie who was speaking to who), a bit predictable at times, a bit poorly edited/proofread in places and a bit boring at times. I did, however, managed to stick with it until the end. Not sure if I should have bothered though.

    • Confusing is the best way I can describe this story. Too many people, too quickly brought into it, I couldnt work out who was who, which kids belonged to who, who was married to who etc. Even in the last few pages several people were mentioned and I thought 'who? who is that?'

    • An enjoyable enough read, liked the way each chapter was a bottle of wine. Guessed the cross dressing plot straight away, and ending typical predictable chick lit outcome. Ideal for holiday read by the pool

    • Like other reviewers have said it got confusing as the chapter breaks weren't spaced out well enough, so it made the story feel like it was jumping. An okay read, though I did guess about what Victor was up to from quite early on.

    • This book is ok for a bit of light reading and really focuses more on one of the 3 women the other 2 could of done with expanding a bit The ebook had no editing problems like some others have seemed to have and it was a freebie x

    • I love this book. A story of 3 women with different stories, background and life experiences who start bussiness- open a wine bar. Gaynor, Sarah and Claire are so different but so similar. With few twists in their lives they come out stronger.

    • Needs re-editing! I got confused more than once who I was reading about as it went from one character to another without a break! Also ended up hating the main character it got me so angry. Definitely struggled to finish this book, would not read again!

    • Good story loved the characters and their development throughout however the book would massively benefit from a good editor as it is often jumbled and switches tense in the same paragraph!

    • Very light story which makes it easy to pick up and down when you were free. Good for a holiday read but no depth to it. Certainly saw the twist coming but was still fun.

    • Enjoyed reading although a little predictable at times and the story jumped between characters a bit. A good story though
