Nic lends the money to Brenna, but sees this as a different type of investment as he now feels he has the mechanism to avenge what he has heard the Marcelli's did to the Giovanni clan years ago. However, Nic feels Brenna's enthusiasm and acumen as if he was working every vine. Soon he falls in love with her, but may have destroyed his chance for happiness when his scheme begins to show fruit. Brenna knows that déjà vu means breaking your heart twice over the same rascal.
The third Marcelli contemporary romance is a fine one as readers follow the exploits of the only sister whose heart is entangled by the vines. The story line is fun to follow as Brenna battles with her grandfather and Nic. Both these stubborn men soon realize how strong a person she is. Readers will appreciate the latest entanglement of the heart as the Marcelli siblings remain strong characters that are fun to observe and the audience will want to toast at their upcoming nuptials.
Mallery's third in the Marcelli series features a striking couple who are equals. Brenna is no shrinking violet and Nic is her equal in temperament and ambition. The books are best if read in order since key plot points are revealed over the five books. The series (in order) includes: The Sparkling One (****), The Sassy One (***), The Seductive One (****), The Marcelli Bride (****), and the abysmal The Marcelli Princess (**).
This last book, Brenna's story, is by far the best of the three. Her long-suppressed desire for Nic drew me in from the first page. Their love story was passionate and delicious and I felt their pull and draw towards one another mature as beautifully as each step of winemaking was described. While I felt ho-hum about Katie and Francesca's stories, this one saved the day for me.
One huge disappointment with the series is this: Throughout THREE books, the entire focus is the wedding -- planning, talking, cooking, making the darn wedding dresses (a very important part of every book) and WE DON'T GET A WEDDING!! Couldn't Mallery have at least concluded with the slam bang, get-the-tissues-out, fabulous Italian triple wedding that they've been talking about the whole time??? For that alone, I dropped this book a star.
Mildly entertaining, but don't expect too much.
