About the Author

Heather Heyford learned to walk and talk in Texas, then moved to England (“Y’all want some scones?”). While in Europe, Heather was forced by her cruel parents to spend Saturdays in the leopard vinyl backseat of their Peugeot, motoring from one medieval pile to the next for the lame purpose of “learning something.” What she soon learned was how to allay the boredom by stashing a Cosmo under the seat. Now a recovering teacher, Heather writes romance, feeds hardboiled eggs to suburban foxes, and makes art in the Mid-Atlantic. She is represented by the Nancy Yost Literary Agency.

This was a really a heartwarming and different kind of story. Sake has had a rough childhood, and is hiding behind this thug act she is putting out. She dropped out of high school, never finished her drivers ed, she is living with an alcoholic man, but she loves baking, and is working in her dream job in a bakery. The way Sake talks makes her sound immature and dull, when she is anything but. She has serious emotional scars from her childhood, and feelings of not being enough, or seen constantly bother her. Through the story and the events she goes through while living in her father world, for the first time in her life, she slowly grows up, learns to appreciate herself, love herself, gets her life in order, builds relationship not only with her father, but with her sisters as well. Bill, the realtor, she stumbles on the moment she lands in Napa, gets roped into a sort of a friendship with Sake. They are rather perfect for each other, but it takes time for both of them to realize that as well. This is a sweet coming of age meets from rags to riches sort of a story. Seeing Sake bloom in her new life, to learn to stand on her own feet, and to accept help when it is needed was heartfelt, her relationship with Bill adorable, with Taylor, the dog, adding to the story its own spice ~ Four Spoons

Family, sisters, trust, parents, goals, perfection…and more are dealt with in this marvelous story. Never having read a book by this author I was not sure what to expect but it was a delight to read and get to know Sake, Bill and some of the rest of the characters in this book. The other three sisters stories are told in earlier books in this series – none of which I have read – none of which are necessary before reading this book. From the time I first met Sake in the helicopter as it was going down till the last page of the book she was a person of character and strength and unlike anyone or any other character I have encountered in or out of a book – she was someone I admired. The other main character in the book is Bill Diamond – a kind, goal oriented, good person who is also a real estate broker and worthy of admiration in his own way. Other characters in the book played parts but the overall story was the Sake’s. Her dog Taylor was a fun addition – I am a sucker for a book with an animal that plays a role in further relationships. Thank you to NetGalley, Kensington Books and Lyrical Shine for the copy of this ARC to read and review.

Great Book! This is a great book; this is the fourth book in The Napa Wine Heiresses series by Heather Heyford. Chardonnay, Merlot, and Sauvignon are the St. Pierre wine heiresses. The sisters are excited about Sauvignon’s wedding. When their eccentric father, Xavier arrives to the wedding with a surprise, a half-Japanese sister named Sake. Sake has never met her sisters and is struggling to break into the Napa society. Bill Diamond is a high end realtor in Napa, and can tell that there’s more to Sake than meets the eye. If you are looking for a great romance then you need to read this book. I am looking forward to reading the other books in this series. A Review copy was provided to me in exchange for a fair and honest review. The free book held no determination on my personal review.

Sake was a very memorable character. A product of a sordid affair she carries the heritage of two cultures on her shoulders. This young woman endures so much hurt and shame in her life she struggles with her true identity. This proves even more difficult when she is thrusts into the public eye as the secret love child of a wealthy vineyard owner. In order to find her future, she has to face her past. What I like most about this story is that nothing came easy for Sake she has had to fight for everything but doing so has given her a deep appreciation for others and helped her to become the strong woman who learns to face her fears. I received an ARC of A Taste of Sake by Heather Heyford in exchange for an honest review. A romance that proves deeper than a love story it is also a story about a woman learning how to love herself and accept all that makes her unique.

This truly enjoyable read is a great addition to the Napa Wine Heiresses series. When the St. Pierre sisters literally have an unknown sister drop from the sky on the day of Sauvignon's wedding, they open their arms willingly to bring Sake St. Pierre into the fold. Sake is not so quick to trust. She has known of and envied her older three half sisters all her life. Believing the will accept her so unconditionally will take some getting use to. Sake meets Bill Diamond on that fateful day as well. He is so very kind and willing to help her out. Sake quickly fears she could easily lose her heart to this man, so running now rather than being rejected later seems to make the most sense. Will he let her go?? This is a wonderful story of a young woman who up until now has lived a hard life. Learning to trust others and depending on family love and loyalty doesn't come in easy but in the end might be what truly saves her. I highly recommend this one.
