I really enjoyed this book, part  of a series, but can definitely be read as a stand alone. Some Old classic cars featured, as both Leo and Stephanie are in the business, a great family feeling to this story, as Stephanie recovers from loosing her father and finding out who is stealing from her business, whilst Leo is supportive in every way. Lovely feel good factor to this book.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Vintage another wonder addition to The Crescent Lake Winery series by Lucinda Race.
Stephanie returns to the small town of Black River learning her father was passing. With only six months to get her inherited business on track, she meets Leo on her worst day but yet at the right time.
Stephanie decides to keep her fathers legacy and keep the business. Leo comes into her life at a time of grief but at a time to support her through learning of the theft in her business. The love Steph and Leo have becomes stronger and Leo’s family loves having Steph involved, but her time in Black River is coming to a end she made a commitment to return to her job in Portland. The bond that Leo has with his family is new to Stephanie as she was a only child. Leo wants to keep her near but willing to do anything for love.
The story is a beautiful clean romance, also a love for classic vintage cars which brought Stephanie and Leo together to begin with. You can get a nice ride in this story of love, family, grief, decisions and deceit I look forward to the next book in the series.

I absolutely loved this book, Vintage.  Lucinda Race has written another book in The Crescent Lake Winery Series that will pull you into to this magnificent story.
Stephanie is home to deal with the loss of her father and to decide what should be done with the company he owns. She has a life in Portland that she wants to return to so the quicker she can figure out what needs to be done she can return to her life there.
Leo steps into her life and from the instant they met chemistry could be felt between them.
There are so many hurdles and bumps on the path to happiness for both Leo and Stephanie.
Romance, family, business, deceit, and love are all here in this book for you to enjoy.
I am thrilled and excited for the next book in the series to be coming out next year. Lucinda Race is one of my favorite authors and I know you to  will fall in love with her books.
Thank you NetGalley, Lucinda Race and Author Collective 20 for the ARC. This is my personal review.

The story 
Leo’s family own the Crescent Lake Winery business but he isn’t directly involved in the business. He restores high end vintage cars. One day, he visits a local auto body business to get specialist paint work done on a vehicle he is restoring when he meets the owner’s daughter Stephanie. He father has just died and she has taken long leave to try sort out her father’s affairs and the business. Leo arrives with his twin nephews and Stephanie at first thinks these are his children. When he tries to ask her out, she is puzzled at the situation and her feelings for him. Strong feelings develop fast for both of them, but what will happen when she must return to life in Portland? 

My thoughts 
I read two earlier books in this series (Crush and Blush) in September and was so excited to see the next instalment was available to request on NetGalley recently. I really enjoy the clean romance, partners that find each other and are aware of their feelings and who are keen to spend time together and settle down. This series reminds me of the stories written by Kristan Higgins and Robyn Carr. Thank goodness the author has created a family with six siblings to keep the romance going a little longer 😉❤️
