Book Review: The Vine Witch

For centuries, the vineyards at Château Renard have depended on the talent of their vine witches, whose spells help create the world-renowned wine of the Chanceaux Valley. Then the skill of divining harvests fell into ruin when sorcière Elena Boureanu was blindsided by a curse. Now, after breaking the spell that confined her to the shallows of a marshland and weakened her magic, Elena is struggling to return to her former life. And the vineyard she was destined to inherit is now in the possession of a handsome stranger.
Vigneron Jean-Paul Martel naively favors science over superstition, and he certainly doesn’t endorse the locals’ belief in witches. But Elena knows a hex when she sees one, and the vineyard is covered in them. To stay on and help the vines recover, she’ll have to hide her true identity, along with her plans for revenge against whoever stole seven winters of her life. And she won’t rest until she can defy the evil powers that are still a threat to herself, Jean-Paul, and the ancient vine-witch legacy in the rolling hills of the Chanceaux Valley.

I received a free digital copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Oh boy, was I excited to get a copy of this book. This was the PERFECT fall read. Luanne Smith has such a unique and gorgeous writing style. Her use of descriptors was perfect. She has great descriptive imagery and her dialogue was on point.  

I was very into this book, I love anything witch or magic related so I just clung to every page. 

I was super excited to see that this is going to be a series. This story feels far from over. I cannot wait to read more about Elena. She is such a powerful and fierce character that I just need more of. 

I love the story between Elena and Jean-Paul. It just felt so natural. I am a sucker for that annoyed relationship turned soul mate. 

My one suggestion is that if you decide to read this book, and you definitely should, do so with a glass of your favorite wine and make a night of it. You will not be disappointed. 

Thank you so much to NetGalley, the publisher, and the author for allowing me to review this title.
