Giuliana "Jules" Baci is the oldest of the three sisters having pledged to give herself 1 year to help get the Tanti Baci Winery in Napa Valley afloat. Both of her sisters, Stevie and Allie, are recently happily married and determined to save their legacy depending on Vow-Over Weekend to get them in the black again. A fire at Jules' apartment soon becomes suspect and keeps her on edge.

Liam Bennett steps in to help the Baci sisters save the winery. Having a long history with Liam, Jules doubts his real motive. The secret is revealed that Liam and Jules were secretly married 10 years ago resulting in Liam walking away shortly after. There is an even bigger secret yet to be unveiled which neither Liam nor Jules intend to discuss. Being at odds with one another, they are now forced to act the part of a happily married couple. This will enforce the legend of the marriages of couples who have toasted with blanc de blanc wine from Tanti Baci to hopefully keep the winery operative. Who knows, they may even discover the hidden treasure, also part of the legend. Can Liam and Jules finally overcome the heartache of the past and corral their emotions in order to face the future?

CAN'T HURRY LOVE is an emotional story of two young people in love but lacking the maturity to cope with a devastating tragedy. This is the third and last novel in the trilogy of the Baci sisters by Christie Ridgway. As the last book of this trilogy, this one was also filled with lots of emotion laced with heartbreak. This is definitely a page turner. I'm sorry that this is the last book in this series, but look forward to new works by Christie.

They've been at odds since the one hot summer long ago that ended in heartache. With the fate of the winery on the line, the former lovers will need to get a handle on their barely leashed hostilities. And with a tangled past and powerful emotions simmering just below the surface, the road back to love will b e the biggest challenge of all.
