POPSUGAR Reading Challenge Prompt: A book with a fruit or vegetable in the title.



Brief synopsis: Georgia Ford is a successful lawyer. One who came from a humble family who runs a successful small vineyard in Sonoma County. Weeks before her wedding's set to happen, she discovers a huge lie her fiancĂ© has been keeping from her. This secret drives her back home to a place that's full of more secrets, and Georgia has to learn the hard way what's worth saving.



I honestly really liked Eight Hundred Grapes. I love a good story about family, and this was perfect chick lit. Laura Dave's writing is spot on, so I'm excited to read another book of hers I already own - Hello, Sunshine. The characters were relatable, even if I can't say I condoned all their choices. But really, what's a book like this without it's drama?

I enjoyed that every few chapters, it skipped back time a bit to give more insight about Georgia's father and how he became a winemaker, and how his choices shaped his life and the life of the vineyard. 

The book was overall predictable, and a little corny, the way all the best chick lit and chick flicks are. And it definitely had me lusting for warmer weather. Eight Hundred Grapes is the perfect beach read, and I would highly recommend it for those of you looking for something to take on your upcoming travels.
