My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A great way to round out this excellent return to the expanded World of True North and the Vino & Veritas location in particular.

While I wasn’t a big fan of the casual dope smoking in this book, it didn’t detract from the lovely romance at the heart of the storytelling.

Both Bowen and Chase had their foibles, their faults and strengths but when it came down to the nitty-gritty, both displayed immense honesty and courage to admit what was in their hearts.

I’ve not read this author before but I enjoyed the family she created with Bowen and his siblings, I loved the friendship Chase had with two of his band mates.

While there’s an instant attraction between the two men, I loved that they took their time to graduate beyond hand jobs and blow jobs, slowly getting to know each other more and put down solid foundations.

I also liked the the dramatic elements in the book came from events in the narrative that felt organically developed and not thrown in for the sake of it.

My only other comment would be that Chase is supposed to be almost 28, Bowen a couple of years younger, but they read far more like new adult characters in their early 20s to me than men approaching their 30s.

Overall though this was a really sweet ending to the series and I hope Sarina continues to return back to the lovely wine bar and bookstore in the future.
