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.

Unexpectedly enjoyable

I enjoyed this book much more than I expected, in reading the synopsis I could tell the main characters were a fair bit older than myself and I generally prefer the main characters to be a bit younger than myself, however given the narrator gave the characters reasonably young voices, I found they felt around the same age as me and I came to really like the characters and the story was really enjoyable too. I do recommend this book, especially to those who love a quality wine. 🐨

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.

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

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.

story predictable narration stiff/unnatural

Just like the title says... characters and storyline we're both predictable and some of the characters were weirdly over-dramatic and didn't feel like real people so it was hard to get into one of the main characters (Piper).

Not a fan of the narrator

I liked the story a lot, but the narrator was super annoying and I had to speed up the pace just to get through the book :(

A good read as usual

I have read most of Georgia Beers' novels. They are always well written and good reads and this one is no exception. The narrator is very slow which is a bit annoying but I put the speed to 1.25x and that made my experience a lot better!

Nice blend

Another sweet romance from the pen of Georgia Beers. The characters are interesting, fun, frustrating and sufficiently snarky. The plot is engaging, showing how change happens...we can either go kicking and screaming or enjoy the flow of the ride. Well performed and thoroughly enjoyable.

A very good book

I enjoy all of Georgia Beers work that I’ve read. As a writer, I appreciate the full development of characters. The voice for Piper was a bit off putting at times and not quite what I would imagine but that’s just an opinion and the performance was well done otherwise.

Great Flow - Would have preferred a smoother ending

This is only the second lesbian romance novel I’ve read, but I thought it was well written and I enjoyed learning a few wine tips along the way. The voices were a little hard to get used to at first, but overall the performance was good. As for the story, I wish the ending had been smoother, and less abrupt. However, the interactions and events leading to that point were a fun read.

Blended wines are the best!

Though entirely predictable, the story was very well written and had me hooked from beginning to end. the only thing I didn't like about it was the slow pace of the narrator. apart from that, it was absolutely worthwhile!
