✱✱Book Review✱✱ Blush by Jamie Brenner


From acclaimed author Jamie Brenner comes a stunning new novel about three generations of women who discover that the scandalous books of their past may just be the key to saving their family's future. 

For decades, the Hollander Estates winery has been the premier destination for lavish parties and romantic day trips on the North Fork of Long Island. But behind the lush vineyards and majestic estate house, the Hollander family fortunes have suffered and the threat of a sale brings old wounds to the surface. For matriarch Vivian, she fears that this summer season could be their last—and that selling their winery to strangers could expose a dark secret she's harbored for decades. Meanwhile, her daughter, Leah, who was turned away from the business years ago, finds her marriage at a crossroads and returns home for a sorely needed escape. And granddaughter Sadie, grappling with a crisis of her own, runs to the vineyard looking for inspiration. 
But when Sadie uncovers journals from Vivian's old book club dedicated to scandalous novels of decades past, she realizes that this might be the distraction they all need. Reviving the "trashy" book club, the Hollander women find that the stories hold the key to their fight not only for the vineyard, but for the life and love they've wanted all along. 
Blush is a bighearted story of love, family, and second chances, and an ode to the blockbuster novels that have shaped generations of women. 

Momma Says: 4 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐
If ever there were a perfect book for curling up with a glass of wine and getting lost in its pages, it would be this one. You might even find yourself snacking on some cheese as well. I know I did. But that's just one part of this story. At its heart, Blush is about three generations of women bonding over books that definitely brought back some memories for me. I love how Jamie Brenner wove that in with these women coming together, a struggling family business, and a crotchety, stubborn man who thinks women have no place in the business. These characters and their story pulled me in and I genuinely wanted to know how things would play out for them. Blush is my first experience with Jamie Brenner, but after reading this engaging tale, it won't be my last.
