Wine Thief by Mary Billiter is another great book by this author. I have read several other of her books and I enjoy each one. I love a romance book with a little mystery and intrigue thrown in to keep it interesting. This book is part of the Resort Romance series, but you do not need to read the other books in this series to understand this one. I do however recommend you read the other books in the series because they are great reads. What do you do when your life gets turned upside down, you start a new life over. That is exactly what Chloe Dorsey did, she moved in with her sister and started a new job at a local winery. An outing on a wine train brings her face to face with Anthony. Their chemistry is instantaneous, but Chloe is worried that feeling an attraction to Anthony is too soon. As they get to know each other Anthony tells her a secret that could cost her everything. There is a wine thief among them. Can she solve the mystery of the wine thief? Will knowing the identity of the wine thief break her heart? The characters of this book were phenomenal. You will instantly connect with them. The chemistry between Chole and Anthony is off the charts, but he also shows a softer side with how he treats her. Also, some of the more intimate scenes may set the sheets on fire. I was hooked on this storyline. When I got to the end of the book I was stunned with the ending. I can’t wait for you to read this book. I am excited to see what else Mary Billiter has in store for me. Edit

I have read a few books from this author and she keeps surprising me. This is another great book from Mary Billiter. This story is a contemporary romance with some mystery in there too. This book is from the Resort Romance series but it is possible to read as a stand-alone. These characters kept me hooked all the way until the end. It was an easy read and was finished within a couple of days. Chloe Dorsey leaves her devastating past behind to live with her sister. She needs a fresh start in order to heal. Chloe finds a new job at a local winery. She is hired as one of the new wine educators but she doesn’t know much about wine. So Chloe and her sister take a tour on a wine train and she has a great time. When Chloe sees the handsome Anthony her heart beat speeds up. Can Chloe be instantly attracted to Anthony or is it too soon? They start to get to know each other but Anthony ends up telling her a huge secret that could cost both of their jobs. Chloe is then told that there is a wine thief in their mist but who could it be? What will Chloe do when she finds out who the wine thief is? Will the wine thief be someone closer than she thinks or someone she never thought would do such a thing? This is a great story and one I did love but hey don't take my word for it go and grab a copy for yourself and have a read. If you have the time and want a few good reads, go and see what else Mary Billiters has on offer. Happy Reading.

Wine Thief by Mary Billiter is the fifth book in her Resort Romances series. All of the stories are standalone and I know it for sure as I read the fourth book before starting on the Wine Thief and yes, they are totally in their own rights! As I had read the fourth book I knew that I was in for a treat! Wine Thief is the story of Chloe Dorsey who has put her old life (and hopefully also her heartache) into storage and headed for a fresh start in Northern California’s wine country where her sister lives, and of Anthony Mahoney who has been hired to solve a mystery aka the source of a rare and award-winning wine. Their paths collide and the writer takes us on a journey of discovery! I simply love the way the writer spins her stories, they are smooth, relatable and to the point! You are there with the characters, every step on the way! You feel with Chloe when she struggles with her feelings towards Tony, when she needs to decide if she can truly trust him. You yell at Tony in your head demanding him to live up to the possibility of a lifetime … So, grab a bottle of wine and settle down with a book that leaves you feeling good and dreaming of a vacation in the Napa Valley … and if you do not drink wine then make a cup of tea and it will still do the trick!

Wine Thief by Mary Billiter a four-star read that will have you reaching for your glass. This is the fifth book in the Resort romance series but they can all be read as stand-alone reads. I don’t know how to figure this review out as the book started so strong, but it seemed to drift a little and then came back to the strength I have seen in the other books of the series. This is witty and romantic and fun in a great way, it’s a very good read to while an evening away with along with a nice glass of wine.

Wine Thief by Mary Billiter is the fifth story in her Resort Romance series and this series just keeps getting better and better. Following the story of Chloe Dorsey who is leaving behind the life she has in Southern California to move closer to her sister in Northern California. Along with the move and the fresh start, Chloe starts a job at the Napa Valley Point Resort, as a wine tour guide. While she doesn’t have allot of expertise on this subject she is willing to learn and her sister is ready to help her. Taking a wine tour with her sister to get a feel for the job, and acquire some new knowledge, Chloe meets Tony Mahoney. Tony is at the resort for a Bachelor Party, or so he says. There is something about Tony that draws Chloe in, but Tony is playing his cards close to his chest. But when Tony’s secrets come out can he trust that Chloe will not turn away from him or will Chloe turn him in for his misdeeds and walk away? The secrets and lies between these two will be hard to overcome but with work, faith and a little trust they can make a chance meeting worth a lifetime of something more. Billiter is a good staple for me when it comes to reading. I have read several of her stories in the past and have really enjoyed all of her characters and stories that she has brought to her readers. While this book is the fifth in a series, each book can be read as a standalone without giving away other plot lines which makes this an even better read. The only downside to this book is that the beginning can be a bit cumbersome with information about the different wines and building of the mystery aspect of the story. It was a very enjoyable read as the romance aspect made for a nice refreshing twist. If you are looking for a good author who will pull you into her stories with little work than this is one that you need to keep on your watch list!

Wine Thief by Mary Billiter Chloe recently uprooted her life in Southern California to move North to her sisters for a fresh start. Taking a job as a new wine educator at the Napa Valley Point Resort and Winery her knowledge of wine is as limited as her income. Tony who she meets there has one objective and that Is to locate the mother vine, the rare source of the amazing wine created at Napa Valley Winery. His ability to undergo secret missions as such is tested after he meets Chloe. Can she stop this wine thief, or will she fall head over heels and have her heart crushed? This book has become one of my favorites by this author. Her characters are developed well in that they are witty, intelligent, and funny. I absolutely loved Chloe’s character in this novel as she continued to battle the huge loss she experienced in her past. She finally decided to let go and allow love to enter her heart again but also discovered another side of herself. Tony was also a great character in that he really changed his outlook on things. This book really pulled me in once I started reading it and I could not put it down. It was a quick and easy read but is something for those who are 18 or older. There are several scenes involving sex that are not appropriate for younger readers. I only came across a few errors that did not detract from the story and they were also few and far between. I can’t wait to read more of the author’s books and I hope they are all just as good as this book. I give it 5-stars and recommend it!

Wine Thief was a good 4 star read. This story started off a little slow but I was eventually pulled in. I feel like we could have had a little less detail on the wine, although I really learned a lot about it. Chloe is on a wine tour with her sister when she meets Tony. Chloe is trying to learn a little bit more about wine so she is taking notes on the tour. She has recently accepted a job at a local hotel and she needs to educate herself Tony is on the tour with his friends for a bachelor party and when he sees Chloe he is pulled in by her. Her car is what gets his attention first and him and his buddies make some bets. I loved how her sister stepped in and had a few words for them. What he doesn’t realize is that Chloe works at the hotel that he will be trying to infiltrate wine secrets from. Will Tony let his heart get in the way or will he go through with his plans? This is the 4th book in the Resort Romance series and can be read as a stand alone. Mary Billiter does a great job with her writing and giving you detail. Be prepared for an emotional rollercoaster. I really liked Tony and Chloe, they had a great connection. The secondary characters added a great element to the story. If your looking for a fun great series to read, I suggest the Resort Romance series. You will really enjoy them.

Wine Thief by Mary Billiter is the 5th book in the Resort Romances series and it, for me, the best, and most favourite book in this series so far! To start, even though this book is part of a series you can read the book as a stand-alone. Moving on wards. This book as I said, as of right now, is my favourite in the series. All are good in their own right, but this one, this one takes the cake. Tony and Chole, they had this magical connection right from the start. It felt so real and grounded. Like I was standing on the side lines watching these two in real time. I loved Tony's reaction when Chole first said hi to him, because, I can't tell you why because it with ruin the magical and the stage. The flow, tone and pacing were perfect. The writing was smooth, engaging and on point. There was this spark to it that captured me and all my attention. Once I started reading, I could not, for the life of me, put this book down. I was drawn so deep into this story, I felt like I was there, walking along side them, ghostly cheering them on. This book, it broke the bar. Take my super high recommendation that you will not only love this book, but be left stunned and speechless, that the written word could be formatted in such away that it not only steals your heart, but your mine and soul. Happy Reading. -E.A. Walsh

*****Romance & Wine & Emotions & Mystery***** WINE THIEF by Mary Billiter is one of those books that surprised me with how much I liked it. Don't get me wrong, I have absolutely enjoyed this author's other stories, but based on the blurb I thought this was going to be different than it was. WINE THIEF: Noun. (Plural wine thieves) A pipette used to remove small amounts of wine from a cask in order to taste or test it.* In addition to the device, I learned so much more from this intriguing story. It is full of wonderful information about wine making and Napa Valley, I now want to tour a vineyard and I don't drink. In addition to educating about wine, this story had humor, emotions, friendships and family, and new beginnings. Both protagonists were at a crossroads in their lives and were navigating new feelings and territory. I would love to tell you more about this story, but I don't want to take away from your experience. If you like a book that educates, has mystery and romance, I absolutely recommend this story. Oh, I also recommend having a tissue or two handy - trust me. *definition courtesy of Wikipedia
