A Perfect Vintage by Chelsea Fagan
A Perfect Vintage by Chelsea Fagan is an indulgent summer romance that takes readers on a journey through the world of wine, love, and self-discovery.
Set against the backdrop of a picturesque vineyard estate in the beautiful French countryside, we follow consultant Lea Mortimer as she counts down to her client’s boutique hotel grand opening. Lea is as type-A as they come. She takes pride in her work and is looking forward to reaping the rewards of her most impressive project to date.
Everything is going according to plan until her cousin, Stephanie, reveals that she’s getting divorced. Stephanie begs Lea to let her and her college-aged daughter tag along as guests while Lea launches the hotel.
Stephanie soon falls in love with Lea’s boss. Stephanie’s daughter falls in love with the boss’s son. And Lea unexpectedly falls for that very same son—despite the significant age gap.
Our type-A heroine finally allows herself to break the rules and lose control. The problem? Everyone stands to get hurt.
This is a fun and relatable story about passion and risk-taking.
But all of the beautiful things in life happen when we let go of control.Chelsea Fagan, A Perfect Vintage

Permission to judge a book by its cover!
We need to talk about this cover! Author Chelsea Fagan had the artwork commissioned just for the book. The original oil painting lives in her NYC apartment as part of her super chic bar setup.
Personally, I ran off to a Temecula winery the week of the book’s release and snapped this photo mere steps from little grapevines.
