Book Review: Saving Grapes by J T Lundy

Saving Grapes

ISBN-10: 1937110753

After a very expensive golf cart mishap, Jason Barnes finds himself in hot-water and only sixty thousand dollars will get him out of it. To make matters worse, he has only 30 days to come up with it. With his best friend, Stumpy in tow, the men set out to France in hopes of selling the vineyard left to him by his Aunt Clara. The eighty-two problems with his plan all wear habits and spend their days worshiping God.

I received this book from Story Cartel, believing it was a romance, since that’s where it was listed. Unfortunately, by the time I got to chapter 6, the only possible connection was between Stumpy (a secondary character) and the flight attendant, which is in total conflict of the definition of a romance. Speaking of flight attendants, I know that flight attendants can’t be as short as this character was described and the excessive jewelry is most definitely not allowed. Seems a little research was in order here.

Since classified as a romantic comedy, I expected to laugh, or at least be amused at some point, which did not happen with this book. I remember dialogue that left me with the belief that it was meant to be funny, but there was nothing comical about it. Chocolate tire? Winer?

Since it’s as far as I got, my review is only based on the first six chapters. And that alone, should say a lot.

Rating system: Cups of coffee – the less the better

0: You won’t need any coffee to stay up for this one. It’s intriguing enough all on its own.
1: You’ll stay up late, but not all night. Brew one cup.
2: You’ll read as long as you’re not tired. If you are, two cups should do the trick.
3: I hope you got plenty of rest; you’ll need it, or at least 3 cups.
4: If the cable goes out, read the book. It’s better than nothing, I guess. Oh, don’t forget your brew!
5: Find anything else to do- it doesn’t matter what it is. Don’t waste your coffee. Too much caffeine is bad for you.

My rating: 5 cups of coffee
