What a beautifully written and completely captivating story! This contemporary romance novel simply dragged me into its pages and wouldn’t let go! I really loved the main characters, Natalie and Tanner. They had some history together as children and young teens. Both had also experienced traumatic events in their pasts which influenced the way they reacted to present situations.
The side stories and characters were extremely interesting, as was the heartbreaking look into the tragic accident that so impacted Natalie. The Memory of You was packed with interesting people, a beautiful setting, and a couple of side stories that were interwoven with the main one to create a book that I didn’t want to set down. I loved it!
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Thirteen years ago, Natalie lost a part of herself when her twin sister died. Will traveling back to the family winery finally put the memory to rest, or will it completely destroy her?
When Natalie Mitchell learns her beloved grandfather has had a heart attack, she’s forced to return to their family-owned winery in Sonoma, something she never intended to do. She’s avoided her grandparents’ sprawling home and all its memories since the summer her sister died—the awful summer Natalie’s nightmares began. But the winery is failing, and Natalie’s father wants her to shut it down. As the majority shareholder, she has the power to do so.
And Natalie never says no to her father.
Tanner Collins, the vintner on Maoilios, is trying to salvage a bad season and put the Mitchell family’s winery back in business. When Natalie Mitchell shows up, Tanner sees his future about to be crushed. Natalie intends to close the gates, unless he can convince her otherwise. But the Natalie he remembers from childhood is long gone, and he’s not so sure he likes the woman she’s become. Still, the haunted look she wears hints at secrets he wants to unearth. He soon discovers that on the night her sister died, the real Natalie died too. And Tanner must do whatever it takes to resurrect her.
But finding freedom from the past means facing it.
