Publisher's Summary

When the widowed owner of the wine bar Vineyard decides she wants to take some time off and travel abroad, she leaves her business in the very capable hands of the two women she trusts most: her daughter Piper and Vineyard's general manager, Lindsay.

For Lindsay Kent, Vineyard is her dream job. She's thrilled when her boss leaves her in charge (well, half charge) and tells her to feel free to make changes. Lindsay has tons of ideas that she's been dying to put into action, and this is her big chance to increase the success of the business and prove she's more than ready to run things solo. But getting the boss's daughter on board is harder than expected. The uptight and annoyingly attractive Piper is blocking her every move.

For Piper Bradshaw, Vineyard is not her job. She already has one. She's VP at a large tech company, and she's damn good at it. Who cares if people say she's a workaholic and an icy bitch? She didn't get to the top by being prone to whims and experiments. She's not happy when her mother suddenly decides to gallivant all over the country and furious that the family business has been left in the hands of the happy-go-lucky, born-a-generation-too-late hippie who manages it. Good thing Lindsay can't make any changes unless they both agree, because Piper doesn't intend to.

Lindsay and Piper are like night and day. Working together won't be easy, but not falling in love might prove the hardest job of all.

awesome read

another awesome awesome book from Georgia Beers. she is incredibly good at telling stories. this one reminded me of her other book 'A little bit of Spice' I loved learning about wine while I read. the slow burn, ice Queen, friendships, family. all it. AWESOME READ

NOW... the narrator! Paige McKinney is incredible, every single lesfic book she narrates I have to have it because she brings color to the story. I adore her!

duh, go get the book dummy, why are you still reading this. highly recommended

Good Audiobook from Georgia Beers

someone left a review that said this audiobook reminded them of another Georgia Beers book titled "a little bit of spice," so I immediately purchased "Blended." a little bit of spice is my favorite Georgia beers book and Abby craden narrated that book, so... that almost set this book, Blended, up for failure, in comparison. I liked Blended. it was a good story, and I enjoyed listening to the book but as I listened I kept wondering if I would have loved the book If Abby Craydon had narrated it instead. okay I'm going on too much about the narration but I just wasn't loving the two main characters voices and I think that took a little away from the whole experience of the audiobook. still it's another solid Georgia beers book. her books are well-written with a little bit of humor which always makes a good read.

Yikes

What disappointed you about Blend?

The narration was horrific. She made Piper sound like a comatose Neanderthal.
The story was very predictable. The break up fight between the 2 primary characters didn’t make sense. Don’t waste your time with this book.

What was most disappointing about Georgia Beers’s story?

The story lacked depth and any feeling of authenticity.

Would you be willing to try another one of Paige McKinney’s performances?

Heck No. if I see her name while browsing I’m not bothering to listen.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment

Any additional comments?

Do better and try not to sound like a broken record.

Great story and narrator

This is a lovely story. I enjoy the natural progression that Beers delivers. The relationships aren’t forced or rushed and the dialogue is so enjoyable. I also enjoy the laughs I get. I found myself smiling through several conversations. She really captures the internal dialogue well. I always enjoy this narrator, too. She makes it easy to listen.

Charming book!

Overall, I really enjoyed this book. It was a little slow to start but wrapped nicely, I'm glad I stuck with it! The characters had great chemistry. I knew there would be a turning point where they began to see each other in a new light but it happened so gradually and really sucked me in. I was rooting for them to make it through tough times. The narration made the book that much better. Great distinction between the characters and with plenty emotion. Highly recommend the book!

Excellent Audio!

I loved Blend. I thought Lindsay, manager of Vineyard, was a great, normal down to earth character. Piper is the daughter of the owner of the Vineyard. She is a workaholic/ice queen. I loved the scenes with the wine tastings. I like learning about things I have no knowledge of, while enjoying a romance. Paige McKinney does an excellent job with the narration.
