The biggest gifts often require the greatest sacrifices.
Italian winemaker, Antonio Giovanni is tall, dark, and handsome with an accent sexy enough to leave a trail of women’s panties in his wake.
Master Sommelier, Hope Tidwell travels the globe seeking out the finest wines. She refuses to let relationships get in the way of her career and abides by a strict set of rules:
Lucky for her, those rules work just fine for Antonio.
Until they don’t.
When Hope’s sister asks her to do the one thing she’s sworn never to do, she can’t say no.
She never intended to travel down this road.
When unanticipated and devastating events throw the trajectory of her life so far off course, she can’t even recognize her world anymore. Suddenly, the rules no longer apply.
Will Hope be able to do the one thing that terrifies her the most?
*Please note Holding onto Hope was previously released as The Italian
Holding onto Hope is a heartwarming story about love and loss. It’s a true journey in learning to rewrite the plans of your life, realizing we don’t always have the answers, and sometimes we don’t need them. Ms. Preston is a goto author for me. I fell in love with her descriptive writing style in book one. This brood has become to feel like my own family, each installment getting better and better. Through her books I’ve gotten to travel the world, and she’s renewed my hope that good things sometimes do happen to good people.
The whole family is back, but Holding onto Hope focuses on the strikingly independent Master Sommelier Hope Tidwell. She’s a woman with a plan. She knows what she wants and doesn’t need anyone to make her happy, until she does. Tragedy strikes, leaving her numb and her life in upheaval. In walks the sinfully sexy Antonio Giovanni, knocking her world off it’s axis. This is the beautiful love story of two people who realize compromise isn’t always a dirty word. It’s a sweet contemporary romance full of intense attraction and some damn good sexy times. It’s about the strength and the love of family.
Sometimes, love begins from some of our most difficult of tragedies. I think it’s God’s way of giving us blessings we won’t ever take for granted.
This absolutely gets a five star recommendation from me, as does the entire Mathews Family series. These books are a journey for your soul where the final destination is always love.
