Publisher's Summary

Red Mountain in eastern Washington is home to a community of eccentrics. Otis Till, the area's visionary winemaker, has been known to howl at the moon - fully nude. Single mother Margot Pierce moved across the country to build an inn, but so far all she does is binge on gelato, the Hallmark Channel, and fantasies of murdering her ex. High school senior Emilia Forester is the daughter of celebrity parents struggling to build her own life outside of their shadow. And Brooks Baker is a man haunted by his past spent living on the streets as an orphan. Somehow, everyone lives together harmoniously, their lives intertwined like the vines in Red Mountain's beautiful and renowned vineyards. But in a place where everyone knows each other, secrets are like poison...and right now Otis, Margot, Emilia, and Brooks all have something to hide. When their secrets come to light, will their small mountain be stronger for it - or will lives be torn apart? Heartfelt and wonderfully descriptive, Red Mountain is the story of four complicated people living in a beautiful landscape unlike anywhere else. Told from multiple perspectives and rich with vivid descriptions of wine life, this novel will transport you from beginning to end.

Very Enjoyable

I hope book 2 is in the works as I would like more time on Red Mountain. Narrator excellent and I am tough on narrators. I think they make or break the audio book experience. I will look for other works narrated by Mr. Taylor

Simply Inspirational

Without many words you'd have to look up in a dictionary, Walker inspires one to look past the difficulties in every life for a deeper calling. This book will make everyone want to find their own 'Red Mountain' and soak in the glory and tragedies that will unfold. It won't hurt your Vino vernacular either!

Good bedtime listen, always put me to sleep

The story took forever to get going, but when it did it didn't go deep enough. The narrator's voice drove me nuts - in particular all the female characters sounded the same, and always sounded as if they were just waking up from a nap.

Vulgar

Very vulgar. Profanity from the very beginning and not well written enough to put up with it, as say Stephan King’s might be. Will scratch this author from my list.

Narrator is as amazing.

Best narrator I have heard. Amazing talent. I look forward to the next project. Storyline was fun and entertaining especially since I live in Washington state.

Embarrassment of Eastern Washington

Listening to this book felt like someone was explaining a simple story to a child by over using a list verbs. Cliche storyline with every word over enunciated. Ugh. Couldn’t make it through the first three chapters. I was looking forward to this books as I live in Eastern Washington, but was sadly less than impressed.

immature

sadly this attempt has all of the emotional and sexual maturity of a 15 year old.
