A perfect introduction to the new Vino and Veritas series
My rating: 4 out of 5
This was a perfect introduction to the new Vino and Veritas World of True North series, which is focusing on the LGBTQ+ community.
Annabeth’s story isn’t overly angsty, it’s a really sweet romance between Harrison, owner of V&V along with his awesome mum Audrey, and local farmer Finn, but it sets a lovely scene for the series and I really liked it.
Both Harrison and Finn have their issues, but neither of them is willing to let them get in the way of how they’re feeling once they both realise that the casual friendship they said they’d stick to has turned into something much deeper.
There is a wonderful connection between the two men, it’s a gentle romance, filled with conversations, but it still brings the heat too and Harrison and Finn burn up the sheets once they decide they’re both fully invested.
The usual book tension hiccup occurs around the 80% mark but, thankfully, is quickly resolved and doesn’t turn into a massive drama. These two men are both mature enough to know they need to talk to each other and I appreciated this element a great deal.
I’m seriously stoked for the rest of the series and there is a gentle introduction to Tanner, one of the MCs in Garrett Leigh’s Heartscape
