Autumn in the Vineyard by Marina Adair
Reasons I love the story:
Frankie: She's a walking contradiction. Even though she acts big and tough, she really does have a good heart and willing to anything for people that she truly cares about. She tries so hard to get the love her family, but they seem to only give it on conditions. This tears Frankie up inside, and she's trying to hold it together.
Nate: The Golden Boy. The guy who can do no wrong and basically charm anything with his smile. Once he learns Frankie's situation he tries to help her. However, it doesn't go so well, because she doesn't trust him. Which is completely understandable, after all he's a Deluca and she's a Baudouin.
Mittens: The Alpaca. He's eats anything and everything. However, when Frankie needs a friend that won't judge or say anything, he's there for her.
I love this story, because it has it all. You're laughing and crying through this book. You feel the turmoil that Frankie goes through as she tries to rebuild her life. Then life has a sense of humor when she ends up stuck with her mortal enemy Nate. Her dislike for Nate goes further than the feud behind the family. This enemies to lovers story will have you entertain through out the book and wondering if it will become love or bloodshed. So, you like a good enemies to lovers story or a love for alpacas, I would highly recommend Autumn in the Vineyard.
Side note: This is a book three that can be a stand alone, but to get the full effect you might want to read the other Kissing Under the Mistletoe and Summer in Napa first before jumping into Autumn in the Vineyard.
