But when Lochley rescues Caro from two men accosting her in town, he finds out the ugly truth about Caro and about himself.

Better than scandal.

When she meets viscount’s son Peregrine Lochley, she’s tempted to trust again. Her worst fears are realized when he discovers her secret. Can he accept her, despite her flaws, or will this wine expert reject her like an inferior vintage?

This was such a sweet romance to read. It was a short book but the characters were well developed and the pacing was great. Caroline had made a bad decision three years prior that still affected her reputation. Caroline’s family supported and loved her even when it ruined their reputation also. I didn’t care for Lochley at first because he seemed so haughty but as I continued reading and learned more about him it was hard not to love him. He had made his own mistakes therefor he wouldn’t judge others. There was so many emotions in this story. I was sad at how Caroline was treated but also awed by her strength to withstand others opinions. I thought this story was unique because I haven’t read many were the heroine made this mistake and was then accepted back into the family home. This was a great book that was easy and fast to read.

This story has an interesting heroine, who made one mistake that snowballed into something so scandalous she doesn’t think she’ll ever recover. Peregrine Lockley has no clue about her past and is intrigued by Caroline upon their first encounter and can’t stop thinking of her. I loved that Caro has a chance at happiness and that Peregrine proves what a good man he really is underneath his dandy persona.

THE SUMMER OF WINE AND SCANDAL by Shana Galen is alternatively touching, hilarious, and very romantic. Caroline Martin is living in shame, when Peregrine Lochley arrives into town and changes everything. In spite of looking like such a superficial fop, he is adorable, and what a joy it was to witness Caro and Lochley form a united front, and I was dying to know what their secrets were. It was such a wonderful story that I was sorry to see it end so quickly!
