Just some of the praise for Whispering Vines
Cheer’s! To Whispering Vines!

I really enjoyed this book and had a hard time putting it down. There was always something new developing to keep you reading. There was even a pleasant surprise of a connection to some characters in a previous book. It’s not important enough that you need to have to read the other books first and it’s not a sequel. It’s just enough to make you stop and think, ‘is that so & so from the other book?’ Then go grab the book and look it up. I am definitely looking forward to Ms. Schisler’s next book!
Reading”Whispering Vines” was Pure Pleasure!

“Whispering Vines” is a beautiful modern-day love story interwoven with a World War II back story that intertwines both love and mystery. When Alex’s surrogate grandmother dies, she leaves Alex her home and half of her family’s vineyard back in Italy. Eager for a new life, Alex picks up and moves to a country where she doesn’t know the language or anything about wine and is forced to face the other owner of the vineyard, an attractive young man who wants nothing to do with her.
Reading this story was pure pleasure. The chemistry between the two main characters was electric. I also enjoyed reading the WWII journal entries and learned some things about Italy in the process.
Well worth reading

This was a really great, involved story which I read in one sitting, even though it took me the entire night. Great writing and I will definitely be looking for more books by this author.
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book and I am so glad I was given the opportunity to read it.
History, Mystery and Love!
on October 26, 2016
I have just finished reading and am not sure whether to laugh or cry or sing with joy. This is an amazing set of love stories intertwining WWII with the present and providing glimpses of history and Italian culture and viniculture, love and loss and family. These characters will remain with me as friends and the places have become destinations I wish to visit. (Actually, I am well familiar with Little Italy and Da Mimmo holds a special place in my heart.) And, BONUS–there are recipes!
