E But what starts as a revenge plan soon turns their lives upside down as the lines between pretending and reality begin to blu. Thirty year old Annie Prideaux is what some would call a wallflower and that s how she sees herself as well Working as an accountant for a small firm she prefers to share as little as possible with her colleagues about her private life and times than not she spends her free time with her cat Amadeus and a good book Her experiences with men so far have been rather boring and when she is out on a date she tries to get it over with as fast and as painless as possible a fact that gives her brother Jake ample opportunity to tease her As long as Annie can think Jake has been playing tricks on her so it comes as no surprise when he sets her up on a blind date with his lesbian college friend Drew without telling his sister that his friend is in fact a woman But this time he has taken it a bit too far and Annie and Drew decide to get back at Jake and pretend they started dating But their little revenge plan takes on a life of its own while Drew struggles with her attraction to Annie Annie is forced to face her demons for the first time in her lifeOne of my main interests when I start reading a book is that I want to care about the characters and what happens to them For me there is nothing that kills the mood faster than shallow two dimensional characters and a plot that doesn t draw me in Something in the Wine didn t disappoint at all Jae managed to draw me right in At first when I started reading this book I thought there wasn t all that much to like about Annie a rather self doubting woman who doesn t seem to have enough willpower to stand up to her dominant brother But getting into the book I realised that there was a lot to Annie and her thoughts and intentions Then there is Drew Jake s college friend is introduced as a young woman who thought she knew where life was taking her when all of a sudden both her parents died and left her with the sole responsibility for the family s vineyard The author developed both women into three dimensional characters by showing them in their daily lives and without giving away too much As a reader I got to know them through their actions I thought it was very interesting how these uite different characters started as partners in crime trying to get back at Jake and became friends by seeing life through the other s perspective In the end I cared very much for both women as well as Jake and even though the book has nearly four hundred pages I was sad when it was finished I would have loved to read about those characters And this is my only complaint Despite its length I felt it ended too soon without giving the reader the opportunity to learn how Annie and Drew would deal with their developing relationship now that all the outward conflicts had been addressed I would have loved to share in their success after having been along on the way to get thereI can really recommend this book And if there s a chance to visit Annie and Drew in another book from this author I ll be sure to get that as well A

Bian winemaker even knowing his sister is straight Annie and Drew decide to turn the tables on him by pretending to fall in lov. I was a little hesitant to read the older version of this book based on the reviews I always pushed this at the end of my to read list because of all those complaints But got curious with the revised edition I m really glad I didn t pass upThis book will surely go to my favoritesI really like the character growth on this book especially with Annie Unlike most of the push and pull stories that I ve read this one stands outAnnie is afraid and confused but one thing I really like about her is that she s willing to try despite all her doubts She s willing to risk though she s scared and the negativity on her head is eating her She s of a doormat and I really feel bad for her Her parents are too self centered to care for her and at one point I m thinkIng that maybe there s a twist that she s really not their daughter or somethingHer brother is annoying too He always tricked Annie to the point that it s really insensitive and out of lineDrew s another favorite of mine She s really patient and understanding She s the perfect girlfriend for me This 2016 version is a must read for meI don t mind the long read It s really worth it And I still want to read of them pBtw what s the difference between the older version and this I really enjoyed the bonus short story Seduction for beginners Annie s POV Solid 5 Favorites
