Books & Bottles: A Book Club in a Box

Books And Bottles Vol 2

The quarterly subscription Books & Bottles gift box is a collaboration between Francis Ford Coppola Winery and Tall Poppy Writers. And they have selected Dreaming in Chocolate as one of the two books for Volume 2.

The gift box includes one book, either Dreaming in Chocolate or The Blackbird Season by Kate Moretti, two bottles of delicious wine (one red and one white), and a booklet containing a fun discussion with Kate and me on books, writing and magic; playlists for both books, as well as recipes to make your next book club or girls night fun and easy.

You can buy the Books & Bottles box for yourself or a book and wine-loving friend here.

“Come for the life-changing chocolates and opinionated apothecary table, stay for the enchanting eight-year old and complicated secrets.” ―Amy Reichert, author of The Coincidence of Coconut Cake

At twenty-seven, Penelope Dalton is quickly ticking off items on a bucket list. Only the list isn’t hers. After her eight year-old daughter Ella is given just six months to live, Penelope is determined to fill Ella’s remaining days with as many new experiences as she can.

With an endless supply of magical gifts and recipes from the hot chocolate café Penelope runs alongside her mother in a small town nestled in the Appalachian Mountains, she is able to give her daughter almost everything she wants. The one sticking point is Ella’s latest addition to her list: get a dad. And not just any dad. Ella has her sights set on Noah Gregory, her biological father and the only person Penelope knows to have proved her true love hot chocolate wrong.

Now Noah’s back in town for a few months―and as charming as ever―and the part of her that dreamed he was her fate in the first place wonders if she made the right decision to keep the truth of their daughter from him. The other, more practical part, is determined to keep him from breaking Ella’s heart too.

But as Ella’s health declines, Penelope must give in to her fate or face a future of regrets.
