If you’re wondering how much wine fixes a broken heart, here are some suggestions: a vat, a bathtub, a glass the side of your head. Best served chilled, and with a straw. When Grace ’s husband passed away, there was no guidebook for the twenty-seven-year-old widow. Crippled with heartbreak, she was also clueless. Was she allowed to wear denim? Should she be shrouded in a black veil? What about T-shirts printed with Tom’s face? Three years later, things look a little different for Grace. She’s adopted two precious girls and she’s learned some life lessons: 1) A wild night involves a label maker and the kitchen cupboards. 2) When you drop your kids off to school, you have to deal with parents who hand out flyers saying, Have You Seen This Cardigan? 3) A supply of SOS wine fixes almost everything. If that fails, biscuits (chocolate ones, because she’s not a complete loser) are a good plan b. 4) On rare occasions, when venturing into the real world, liquid eyeliner is evil and borrowing your sister’s push-up bra is essential. Grace’s number-one rule is to protect her heart by only getting attached to her cookie jar. But Tom didn’t die so that Grace could play it safe, never stepping beyond the barriers of her comfort zone. Can she take a leap and get back to the old Grace, who still believes in love? This hilarious and moving tale is for anyone who’s questioned their qualifications at life, and learned that a little bit of wine goes a long way!
