“I’ll Take You There…”
Wine Country Photo Tour

Book #1 The Single Girls Wine Club
I had so much fun writing Just a Kiss! It was the perfect excuse to tell a hot and sweet love story set and set the tale in my home town. Grounded in romance and vino, my characters live and work in the wine country towns of Sonoma and Napa, an hour north of San Francisco. The series centers on three roommates who live in an historic villa in Sonoma called “Bella Villa.” Each of the women, will “star” in their own book and be treated to a toe-curling love affair they never saw coming. Many of the book’s locations are “real.” I use actual events and pour genuine wine wherever possible throughout my story. All of the photos, except the last, small screen-shot from a movie, are my own, taken with my phone camera. So, let me show you around wine country…!
Just a Kiss is the first story in the series. It centers on the love story between Sarah Dupont and Jamie Santino. Jamie is one of the six infamous Santino brothers of Napa Valley Winery fame.
After taking the advice of her best friend, Sarah leaves San Francisco (and her idiot fiance) and moves to Sonoma Valldy. She opens a café in the heart of town on the Sonoma Plaza.Do you notice the green awning? Sebastiani Theatre is a California landmark and plays a big role in the story because Jamie Santino is an actor. Sarah meets him when one of her roommates convinces her to give Jamie baking lessons for an upcoming movie role. Jamie grew up in Napa Valley, a twenty-minute drive from Sonoma. His family owns the Santino Family Winery. So of course I had do a lot of “research” on wine…
Now, back to the story… here. Until next time,
