(River Hill #1)


With movie roles for “curvy best friend” drying up fast, actress Angelica Travis is happy to leave Hollywood behind to renovate a bed and breakfast in peaceful wine country. She’s got plans and power tools ready, but an inconvenient attraction to her grumpy new neighbor is not on the agenda. Neither is kissing him practically all over town.

Vintner Noah Blackstone’s main goal in life is to win awards for his wine. Everything is going according to plan too, until construction on the B&B bordering his property threatens his prize-winning vines. When Noah storms next door to demand an explanation, he doesn’t expect to meet the sexiest woman he’s ever seen.  Everything about Angelica is both infuriating and exhilarating—from her pink tool belt to her quick retorts. And even though she drives him absolutely insane, he can’t help wanting her.

Somehow, between long hikes through the forest and lovely picnics on the bay, Angelica and Noah manage to resolve their differences. But when Noah’s secrets are revealed and Angelica gets another shot at stardom, they’re forced to ask themselves some very hard questions. Can their love survive the truth? Better yet ... can they survive each other?

"River Hill is a small town full of big personalities. It's the place where second chances are just around the corner and a heart's desire can hide in plain sight. Norinne and Brinkley created a setting that is reminiscent of a not so distant past, but with a hint of present day charm." - Hopeless Romantic Book Blog

“Many authors collaborate and write books together, this one presents a solid story where the chapters blend so well together that I can’t tell where one writer begins and the other ends. Now, add wicked chemistry, witty dialogue and a tease of characters that you want to read more about, it’s the perfect recipe to begin a new series.” - Books I Love a Latte
