A "heartfelt and engaging" romance in the sparkling series set in Oregon wine country from the author of the Napa Wine Heiresses novels (Urban Book Reviews).
Welcome to Ribbon Ridge, Oregon, a small town steeped in history and graced with verdant valleys. In the first book of Heather Heyford's newest series, a family-run vineyard is the perfect place to find yourself . . . and lose your heart.
The Vineyards at Ribbon Ridge is about as far away from the big city as Philadelphia music teacher Jamie Martel can get, and it's the perfect place for her to forget her troubles for a while. But can a dream vacation turn into her real life? When she is offered a summer job at the lush Oregon vineyard, she decides it is time to find out.
Hank Friestatt took over The Vineyards when his parents passed. Committed to keeping their legacy alive, he has poured his heart and soul into the family business. With things back on track, he's torn between tradition and a tempting opportunity to cut and run. Yet something about down-to-earth Jamie is making him question his plans. As the grapes are harvested and the leaves start to turn, Hank vows to keep the promises he made. Saying goodbye to Jamie, however, may be a lot harder than he thought . . .
Heather Heyford writes contemporary romance novels set in the wine country, where she visits frequently to drink pinot noir—er, research books. Heather sold her first romance series in 2014 to Kensington Publishing’s then-new digital imprint, Lyrical Press. After gaining a following in digital, her first mass market paperback series launched in 2018 with The Sweet Spot, a contemporary love story set in Oregon’s Willamette Valley.
