Bluestone & Vine (Blue Hollow Falls #2) Reviews
Perfect time for a visit to the Virginia Blue Ridge Mountains. Bluestone & Vine by Donna Kauffman makes you believe that you have done just that. Thank goodness we don’t all have to cross an ocean to do so as Pippa MacMillan does. Hopefully none is recovering from surgery as she is too. As she finds there is not better place to do so than Blue Hollow Falls.
Again normal well-adjusted characters grace the pages of Ms. Kauffman’s book. Life has not been without its struggles, unfortunate and s ...more
Seth and Pippa's story was so moving! I laughed, I cried, I stopped and considered what I had just read. I know I will be thinking about this story for a long time to come.
I loved Seth in the first book of the series, so I have really been looking forward to this book. He is so funny and also so insightful. In this book we also see how compassionate, giving, and romantic he is.
Pippa has a sparkling personality with a healthy dash of practicality. She is hilarious! I have a complete girl crush on ...more
Blue Stone & Vine, the newest addition to the Blue Hollow Falls series, is another excellent read by Donna Kauffman. You can certainly read it as a stand-alone but it's more enjoyable when you know all about their history as a "family." This is a relaxing love story with powerful characters who are full of humor and a strong sense of family and loyalty. Their love seems to bloom in a very relatable way...humor comes in the form of a llama (be prepared.) I would move to this community if I co ...more
I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED Bluestone & Vine by Donna Kaufman, the second book in her Blue Hollow Falls series and I really struggled to put it down. This is a story of two loss souls who are starting over again, hoping they are on the right path toward their futures.
A former Special Forces soldier, Seth works on his renovated stone barn and beautiful hillside into a vineyard. Pippa MacMillan, a super star on the Irish folk music scene, voice requires a time-out, leaving her wondering how and whe ...more
Donna doesn't disappoint!
I admit to being a big fan of Kauffman's, so my expectations for this book--the second in the Blue Hollow Falls trilogy--were high. As always, her characters are down to earth and relatable, to the point where you miss 'em when the last page has been turned. Blue Hollow Falls is so well drawn that you almost believe you will find it along Skyline Drive; it is easy to imagine these folks against this backdrop.
In BlueStone & Vine, our hero, Seth, is a strong, self-con ...more
Pippa MacMillan is famous Irish folk singer but because of a recent vocal surgery, she has not performed for over a year. Wanting to get away from everything and hide out in a place where no one knows her, Pippa agrees to her sister Katie's plan where she goes to the US, while Katie's old college roommate, Moira "Mouse" Brogan comes and stays at Pippa's place in Ireland. Now, Moira just needs to let her big brother, Seth know that he is going to have a guest at his vineyard in Blue Hollow Falls, ...more
This is the story of Seth and Pippa. Seth is a newly minted vintner and Pippa is a world famous folk musician. They end up together in the small town of Blue Falls Hollow, Viginia and the rest is history.
This was an excellent read. I liked how the story centred on relationships, and not just the central romantic one. These relationships are all deep, well rounded and satisfying.
While the male lead is not my type physically, he is all one could want emotionally. He is strong, reliable, and hones ...more
