Review: Intoxicating (Oregon Wine Country #2) by Heather Heyford

The Girl Most Likely
. . . to be a waitress at her hometown café. That’s what Clarkston’s high school yearbook said about Poppy Springer ten years ago and that’s where the beauty queen is today. But that’s about to change now that Poppy has been offered a position as a lady sommelier at a cutting-edge new restaurant. Only Poppy has an embarrassing secret that could keep her from landing her dream job. A secret her high school crush seems determined to help her with . . .

The Man Most Wanted
In high school, Heath Sinclair may have been voted most likely to blow something up, but these days the sexy science prodigy is a self-made success story with his popular microbrewery and chiseled good looks. So why is Clarkston’s most-eligible man so hell-bent on helping Poppy prove that she is more than her reputation? Could it be the enigmatic bachelor has a hankering for the girl who got away?

Terri's Thoughts

I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.  The expected publication date is March 28th, 2017.

This is the second story in the Oregon Wine Country series.  It is not necessary to read the first one to enjoy this instalment however I would recommend it just so you can become familiar with the cast of characters.

I was a big fan of Poppy.  Her determination and drive to succeed at any cost was something that I could identify with in my career.  Her eternal optimism is something that I do not share yet envy.  Heath on the other hand was a little bit of an odd character for me.  His social awkwardness almost read as juvenile at times to me.  His devotion to Poppy on the other hand did not.

This was a sweet story that told the lesson on how priceless friends, family and home are.  Fans of contemporary romance will enjoy this story!

About the Author

Heather Heyford learned to walk and talk in Texas, and then moved to England. (“Ya’ll want some scones?”) While in Europe, Heather was forced by her cruel parents to spend Saturdays in the leopard vinyl back seat of their Peugeot, motoring from one medieval pile to the next for the lame purpose of ‘learning something.’ What she soon learned was how to allay the boredom by stashing a Cosmo under the seat. Now a recovering teacher, Heather writes contemporary romance novels set in the
wine country.
