Once Upon a Wine

We rated this book:


I found it difficult to suspend my disbelief while reading Once Upon a Wine. The story follows three women, Cammie, Kat and Ginger, as they take ownership of a vineyard and try to cultivate grapes to make wine. Ginger suffered a cancer scare and purchased the vineyard with her retirement funds in a way to live life to the fullest. Kat is a former famous skateboarder, and – after a spinal injury – became a suburban housewife who feels unsatisfied and out of love with her husband. Cammie moved from Delaware to California to live her dream of owning a restaurant. When her dream failed, she found herself moving back to her hometown. The three women find love and life in between growing grapes in their vineyard.

The main characters spent at least the first half of the book being insufferable, shrill, and unlikable. Amidst a plot full of holes, it seemed like every conversation between Ginger, Cammie, and Kat ended in a shouting match or in someone storming out of the room. This book would be a great summer beach read, but after taking it to the beach with you, maybe leave it there on purpose.
