East Texas Writers' Guild Book Awards

2016 Finalist, Romance Category




This is an incredible story with a large range of characters, which are all equally charming. In spite of the many characters, they all have their own individual quirks and charms. One is even introduced to several of the people who stay at the B&B, so there is a feeling of reality to the story. Simple Italian phrases are interjected throughout the piece to give it that international seasoning, but not so much that the reader feels left out. Ms. Paris does an exquisite job describing the area around the home and the terrace. She captures the romantic aura that one needs for such a piece steeped in passion. ~ InD'Tale Magazine


Patricia has written about characters from several generations that weave an intriguing story tying their past connections into the present. Never having had a sister and always thinking how good it would be to have one, her story feeds the imagination of sisterly love and support. I would recommend you enjoy Lucia for a good read and don't be surprised if you find yourself going to a vineyard for a tasting.   ~ Charlene Ossman


This is a terrific, warm book. I really enjoyed the development of the characters and I'm looking forward to the next volume!     ~ LH
