Eight Hundred Grapes by Laura Dave

The Sonoma wine country is stunningly beautiful, with its rows and rows of vineyards, a location set apart from the busy city. It would be the perfect place to grow up, raise a family, and run a small family vineyard. However, when family is involved, does anything ever run smoothly? If this fictional family runs like the rest of our families, the answer to that question is-no. When Georgia Ford finds out that her fiance has been keeping a secret from her, it threatens to undo her entire sense of being. Proof of this undoing is showing up on the family vineyard in your wedding dress. When you run out on your dress fitting a week before the wedding, you know things are really sideways. Georgia, and her family's secrets, come to light, and it all seems too much to bear. Her fiance's secret lands on top of another secret that her father has been harboring, and on top of everything else she has to deal with her mother's complicated relationships with her father and another man. While Georgia hangs by a thread, her family, including her brother's and sister-in-law add depth to an already rich novel. Family, the secrets we keep, and the true path to happiness are all part of this novel that you won't want to miss. 

There are secrets you share, and secrets you hide…

Growing up on her family’s Sonoma vineyard, Georgia Ford learned some important secrets. The secret number of grapes it takes to make a bottle of wine: eight hundred. The secret ingredient in her mother’s lasagna: chocolate. The secret behind ending a fight: hold hands.

But just a week before her wedding, thirty-year-old Georgia discovers her beloved fiancé has been keeping a secret so explosive, it will change their lives forever.

Georgia does what she’s always done: she returns to the family vineyard, expecting the comfort of her long-married parents, and her brothers, and everything familiar. But it turns out her fiancĂ© is not the only one who’s been keeping secrets…
