Review: Say You'll Be Mine, by Julia Amante
From page one I found Isabel to be selfish and hard to relate to. Here's three kids without anyone, and she's ready to pawn them on a very elderly grandmother, or worse, and uncle she knows nothing about who's estranged from the family for a reason. I understand the reason for animosity toward the ex, but the guy was trying. He was there. This book just didn't do it for me. In saying that, Amante sets her scene well and did her research on vineyards, law, and Argentina. I felt like I was right there with the characters.
