Saving Grapes By J. T. Lundy

Book Description.....

"Thirty-two-year-old Jason Barnes recently lost his job, and his heart. Now, thanks to a meddling ex-wife and a golf cart fiasco, he has just thirty days to pay a $60,000 fine or go to jail.

Jason was hoping his Aunt Clara would come to his rescue, but she unexpectedly dies, gifting her liquid assets to charity. She does, however, will Jason a picturesque French vineyard—and it’s worth millions. But there’s a catch! If Jason goes to jail, the vineyard will transfer to his unscrupulous stepbrother.

To raise the cash he needs, Jason travels to France with his knucklehead of a best friend to sell the vineyard. Cashing in will not be so simple, though. Formidable nuns farm the vineyard, and he needs their blessing to sell. To persuade the good sisters, Jason attempts a madcap series of dubious schemes, and while doing so falls for what he thinks is the perfect French woman. Amidst this melee of wine, women, nuns, and villains, Jason must unearth his true values in order to save more than just his soul.

Infused with J.T. Lundy's deliciously skewed sense of humor, and full of flawed but irresistible characters, Saving Grapes is a rollicking, good-hearted Wodehousian comedy that speaks to the hapless romantic in all of us."

"Saving Grapes" by L. T. Lundy

What I liked about this novel...

Wow, all I can say it that "Saving Grapes" made me laugh and laugh ...from this vineyard setting [sights, sounds and aromas] along with the nuns and those crazy villains these two main characters[Jason and Stumpy] were simply off the chart so interesting and funny!  Oh yes, in a slapstick way did I love this way this author was able to give the reader simply a fun adventurous read with these two attempting to fulfilling the conditions of a will to inherit the vineyard left to Jason[a perennial screw-up] by his Aunt Clara.  There will be some twist and turns in this fast story that will keep your attention and guessing all the way to the end. Who knew as Jason sets out for financial gain will he end up getting so much more?   So, if you are in for a good laugh I would recommend this comic romantic novel as one enjoyable read.
