Secretly Yours: A Novel: 1 (Vine Mess, 1)
About this deal
As with most of her books, Secretly Yours is a bit steamy which is either good or bad depending if you like that or not. But, it’s also a slow burn, so it takes a while to get to the steamy bits. Secretly Yours is a fun, light book, and the start of a promising new series set in wine country. I’m looking forward to the next book in the series. Hallie Welch had a crush on Julian Vos ever since he almost kissed her when she was only fourteen years old. Now, she’s been hired to plant flowers around the guest house he’s staying in at his family’s winery. Julian can’t take his eyes off Hallie as she digs around his garden.
Carapellotti, Hannah (2023-07-14). "Tessa Bailey talks her newest romance 'Unfortunately Yours' ". The Michigan Daily . Retrieved 2023-08-17.Tessa Bailey is one of the most prolific American female authors who has done excellent work in her career as a writer. She has written a myriad number of books that are available both online and locally. She is married and a mother of one. Tessa Bailey currently lives in New York City with her family. Her main passion is writing and reading romance, but whenever she isn’t either of these, you will find her enjoying a good argument and a recipe of about thirty minutes.
As I’m writing this, I’m starting to wonder if the longer we fight change in ourselves, the less time we have to live as better people. Or at least more self-aware people. I propose that we both do something that scares us this week.” From #1 New York Times bestselling author and TikTok favorite Tessa Bailey comes a steamy new rom-com about a starchy professor and the bubbly neighbor he clashes with at every turn... From Tessa Bailey— #1 New York Times bestselling author, TikTok favorite, and "the Michelangelo of dirty talk" ( Entertainment Weekly)— comes a spicy small town rom-com about a grumpy professor and the bubbly neighbor he clashes with at every turn...Hallie, listen to me. You don’t make messes. You follow your heart, and your heart is so beautiful, I can’t believe it was mine.” He seemed to brace himself. “Put me out of my misery and tell me it’s still mine. Please.” All across the USA, people are showing up dead. The deaths don't appear to be connected in any way until one particular death occurs and gets the Secretary of Defense's attention. He arranges for a task force to investigate. I really love the supporting case, like Lavinia who is Hallie’s best friend. It’s fun and still authentic! I also found Julian’s sister to be an interesting character and it looks like the next book in the series will be about her.
