Genre: Romance | 316 Pages | Published: 11.20.20 by Forever Pub
Book Jacket Synopsis:
From debut author, Barb Curtis, a heartwarming small-town romance about high school sweethearts who return home and discover that first love sometimes gets a second chance. . .
Jay Wynter wants to be successful on his own merit. That’s why he left Sapphire Springs and his family’s winery to build a career from scratch. But now that he’s successor to Wynter Estate, Jay must return to his small hometown to face everything, and everyone, he left behind-especially his high school sweetheart, who happens to be his stunning new business partner . . .
Leyna Milan knows family legacies come with strings attached, but she’s determined to prove that she can run her family’s restaurant. Of course, Leyna never expected that honoring her grandfather’s wishes meant opening a second location on her ex’s property-or having to ignore Jay’s sexy grin and guard the heart he shattered years before. But as they work closely together, she begins to discover that maybe first loves deserve a second chance . . .

- All these years she’d accused him of having no loyalty, but that was clearly not the case. Jay might not have been present in Sapphire Springs for every pruning and harvest, but his heart had been here all along.
- “A young pinot is fresh and delicate, but as it matures it becomes much more complex… exotic even. It’s got a finish that won’t let go, and once you’ve had a taste of it, it’s unforgettable. The challenge to achieve something that good can be enough to drive a grower insane. But if you can actually manage to get it right, it’s like…finding the love of your life after years of searching.”
Review & Thoughts
Forever With You is the first in a series by author Barb Curtis. This first book is a story of second chances. Sometimes when you fall in love it really is forever and the right timing can make a difference on when it works out for good. I’m a big believer in whether or not the timing is right.
I always enjoy a good happily ever after with a bit of drama, chaos, and mystery thrown into the mix. I love the name if the city, Sapphire Springs. I’d really love to read Emily’s story next and hoping things work out with Tim. I believe the second book in the series will address their story!
Themes and topics: trust, greed, white-collared crime, death, wills, inheritance, divorce, and a vineyard! Friendship, family, second chances, new business ventures, and above all, love.
Fun Fact: there’s a black cat named Felix!

About Barb Curtis
A happily-ever-after-crafter at heart, Barb Curtis’ love for writing began with a quick-witted style column, and her background in marketing led to stints writing print and web copy, newsletters, and grant proposals. The switch to fiction came with the decision to pair her creativity with her love for words, and crafting characters and settings she could truly get lost in. Barb happily lives in a bubble in rural New Brunswick with her husband, daughter, and dog. You’ll find her restoring the century-old family homestead, weeding the garden, and no doubt whistling the same song all day long. You can learn more at:
