I recently had the chance to get a copy of Corked thanks to the Hachette Book Group and The Product Review Place.
Meet Kathryn Borel, bon vivant and undutiful daughter. Now meet her father, Philippe, former chef, eccentric genius, and wine aficionado extraordinaire. Kathryn is like her father in every way but one: she’s totally ignorant when it comes to wine. And although Philippe has devoted untold parenting hours to delivering impassioned oenological orations, she has managed to remain unenlightened. But after an accident and a death, Kathryn realizes that by shutting herself off to her father’s greatest passion, she will never really know him.
My thoughts …
I am loving this book. I admit I am only half way through it. I have been reading it as I work out on Squeaky, my elliptical. (See a Mamavation post for details!) I haven’t been using Squeaky as much the past two weeks so I am a tad behind on finishing this book but am excited to get back to it this week.
I love books that tell a story that takes you are on a journey. This book is written just like that. I feel like I am there … well until I lose my balance on Squeaky and then I am jolted back to reality and realize I am NOT in Italy tasting amazing wines and listening to Kathryn argue with her dad! If you love a good read, you will love this book. If you love wine, you will drink up this book. Remember summer is coming soon and this would be a great book to add to your summer reading list!;)
