      Without being really aware of it, I have always written angst ridden teenage diaries, bad poetry, little bits of stories and so on After studying English and publishing at university I worked in book publishing as an assistant and then an editor Realising that I wanted to do of my own writing, I went to work in magazines, first as a features writer, a copy editor and then an editor I have been a freelance features writer and project editor for five years, and it was during this time that I began to write fiction ROSE S VINTAGE came about as I was musing one day what it would be like to arrive in Australia and find it completely unlike anything you d expected Its vineyard setting came about as a result of many visits to wineries during the years I edited Gourmet Traveller WINE magazine I loved the sense of community I found in these regions, and wanted to capture that in the novel I have finished a second book in the series, called The Angel s Share yet to be published , and both books sold at auction to Piper verlag in Germany I am currently working on my third novel, a historical mystery about a Victorian botanist.

    • Just the sort of read I needed tonight! One to make me smile. My View:This is the prefect pick me up read when you have had a hard day, a hard week or just finished a few emotionally draining works of crime fiction. For me a conspiracy of all the above elements meant I really needed a read that would energise not drain my emotions and make me smile. This fir the bill perfectly.I love the settings – Australian wineries and small country towns juxtaposed against fast paced city living. I had vis [...]


    • I really don't know what to think about this book. On one hand it had me absolutely suckered to the couch for the afternoon while reading it but at the same time it was so disgustingly happy and positive and, "If-you-work-hard-you'll-reach-your-dreams-and-live-freaking-happily-ever-after!" and to be completely honest, it made it really hard to read for me. I think it's just the space in life that I'm in at the moment but just the whole storyline of Rose the main character and how the book starts [...]


    • Recently, a fantastic sub genre within the field of contemporary Australian rural fiction books, with winemaking as the appealing backdrop, have begun to crop up on bookshelves. I have had the pleasure of reading two such books that fall into this genre, Between the Vines by Tricia Stringer and The Grass is Greener by Loretta Hill. I can now add Rose’s Vintage, by Kayte Nunn to this fabulous collection of books.Rose’s Vintage introduces us to a young British woman, Rose Bennett, who leaves h [...]


    • I enjoyed this novel - it was a light, breezy read.I felt like the hero & heroine were more friends than lovers - which is fine and normal, but in a novel I'm not sure it works.I thought the 'spy' sub plot was awkward, and not utilised effectively - and in the end, it made no difference to anyone, so why have it in the first place.For a first novel, this was a nice read, the wine making references were well researched and the feel of the community was nicely drawn.It was certainly not a mult [...]


    • This is the latest in the string of lighthearted Aussie vineyard romances that I've read. I love them and keep coming back for more. I thought I had this one all figured out, but Kayte threw a few twists at me to keep me on my toes.I loved Rose, although I wanted to talk some sense into her at times. If she wants some warm Aussie weather, she can come visit me in Darwin! The kids were adorable and the ex-wife a manipulative psycho, the perfect mix to keep things entertaining. I received this boo [...]


    • Once started I was hooked. Loved the characters and the vineyard setting of the story. Rosie such an engaging character that you felt her every emotion. The varied and interesting characters in the town and the dynamics of the relationships kept me interested. Just wanted it to continue to discover how the town, the vineyards and the people progressed Loved it and the touch of romance helped. Very easy to read and great writing style.


    • I absolutely devoured this book! Having spent time in and around Australian wine country, I found myself lured in by Kayte's spot-on portrayal of the scenery, food and people. A delightful romance that leaves you wanting for more! Can't wait for the second instalment


    • What a fabulous first book from Kayte Nunn, I loved everything about this book - from the warmth of the characters to the sublime Shingle Valley setting to the captivating storyline. This book had me at 'hello'. I can't wait for the next!


    • Very enjoyable read with a great sense of place (and sense of wine). I had to look up a lot of the Australian slang, but that's most of the fun right?


    • I loved itI cannot wait to meet up with Rose again soon. Loved the country side, food, wine and of course the romance. Very hard to put down.


    • Having not read a romance book in such a long time, Rose's Vintage was the ideal choice. The characters were all awesome and of course, the love that developed between Rose and her boss, Mark was just the icing on the cake. I loved this book and only hope the author has more books written in the same genre!


    • I really enjoyed this book. The setting and characters were all well developed and engaging. I would say the story was more about Rose's personal growth than a romance - and I was definitely ok with that.


    • Firstly I would like to thank the publisher for a copy of this book.What a wonderful debut novel. It was a treat of a story. I devoured this book. A well constructed story will full bodied characters and just enough intrigue to keep the reader interested. Isabella was a thoroughly contemptible character – I so wanted to see her get slapped down off her pedestal. I must admit that even though I liked Mark and felt bad for the situation he found himself in with her, I really was disappointed tha [...]


    • Rose's Vintage was an excellent read! I could not put this book down from start to finish as I was addicted to Shingle Valley and I had to find out exactly what happened to Rose! I really connected with her character having arrived in Australia from Canada in the month of September expecting the weather to be hot!. falling in love with an unhappily married man with children. Love makes us give people chances. I particularly love Kayte's description of the vineyards, weather, food and wine! It in [...]


    • Rose’s Vintage reminded me of a light, crisp wine. It’s not as complex as some, but a pleasant drop nonetheless. I’m a fan of food fiction, so the blurb was enough to get me in, although comparing it to Joanne Harris’s Chocolat was a stretch.While I was drawn to the setting and enjoyed the interactions between Rose, Astrid and the children, I didn’t feel the chemistry between Mark and Rose. I also found myself questioning why Rose would keep giving Mark chances – his reasoning just d [...]


    • I received this book from a good reads giveaway, and though this is definitely not the kind of book I would usually read, I did enjoy it. It was a nice break from some of the heavier books I've read lately, it was a nice read. I found that it drew the reader in and did make me want to keep reading. Overall, a good, sweet story with realistic characters.


    • I couldn't put this book down - wanting to always read the next chapter to find it what happened next! The roller coaster ride of life that Rose was on was a familiar story to many of us so you could totally relate to it as if you were listening to the story of a friend. Looking forward to the next book from this new author.


    • I won this on competition page. I absolutely loved it. Funny and logical, the food sounded so good, I would happily dive into the book for food and wine. Cannot wait for the sequel if there is one.


    • Consumed this book in a couple of sittings. Loved the characters and the scenery and once I started I didn't want to stop. A fab read for fans of great writing. Entertaining, captivating, well written and romantic. Excellent first novel - can't wait for the next one.


    • I loved this book! Really easy to read and a thoroughly enjoyable page turner. Looking forward to the next novel by Kayte



    • The book finished way too quickly. A thoroughly enjoyable page turner with lovable characters. Thank you for such a great read!


    • I was going to give the book 4 stars because some of the Australianisms annoyed me a bit. It's the 21st century and we really don't talk like that for the most part. But at the end of the day it was a very enjoyable and well written book, with likeable characters. Astrid in particular with her mangled sayings. So 5 stars from me.


    • Review first posted on my blog 'A Spoonful of Happy Endings': spoonfulofhappyendingsspoRose Bennett needs a break from everything after the split from her long-term boyfriend, so she decides to go to Australia where she finds a job as an au-pair at a winery in the Shingle Valley. Owner Mark Cameron is a real workaholic, doing everything in his power to make Kalkari Wines a success, while also dealing with his two kids after his wife left them.

    • 'Rose's Vintage' is a relaxed, restful read, like a glass of red on a lazy afternoon. Rose is sent by her all wise and older brother to the other side of the world as an au pair for a family in the wine growing region of NSW Australia and before we know it she is cooking, cleaning, helping and falling in love.with the children, the house, the farm, the town, the locals, the landscape and the mysterious, hurt Mark Cameron, for whom she works. Rose has a lot of healing to do and without realising [...]


    • Rose's Vintage is an easy read, full of warmth. The perfect read for a cold winter's day while snuggled up with a blanket and a cup of tea (or two!).Rose is a likeable character, though I did wonder a few times throughout reading it how a Cordon Bleu trained chef didn't know how to cook some basics, like a fruit cake! In fact, she seemed to need quite a few recipe books towards the start of the book which I found a little odd. Particularly being as six months later when the story line takes a tw [...]


    • A light-hearted story with everything to appeal to people who like Aussie romance in a rural setting. The background of vineyards, a small Aussie town that pulls together, great characters, interesting information about grapes, wine and food, all add to the attraction. I got a bit annoyed with Rose at times, but as we all expected, all's well that ends well.


    • A story of Rose, who was lost after the breakup of a longterm relationship. She left behind her family and friends in England to move to Australia to spy on a winery for her brother.She not only found herself in this strange country but she also found love.A great book that I found hard to put down. Although at times I found it a bit predictable, I love every moment.


    • I want to holiday in this place! Kayte has such a talent for setting a scene, spinning a tale. I'm not a wine buff but I still got into it, made me hungry all that delicious cooking. Good to see poor Rose finds a place in Oz. Hope author feels the same way! Great relaxing read.
