Napa Valley AVA is an American Viticultural Area located in Napa County, California, USA. Napa Valley is considered one of the top wine regions in the United States and the world, with a history dating back to the nineteenth century. The combination of Mediterranean climate, geography and geology of the valley are conducive to growing quality wine grapes. John Patchett established the valley´´s first commercial vineyard in 1858. In 1861 Charles Krug established Napa Valley´´s first commercial winery in St. Helena. Viticulture in Napa suffered several setbacks in the late 1800s and early 1900s, including an outbreak of the vine disease phylloxera, the legal institution of Prohibition, and the Great Depression. The wine industry in Napa Valley recovered, and helped by the results of the Paris Wine Tasting of 1976, came to be seen as capable of producing the best quality wine. Almost 4.7 million people visit Napa Valley each year, making it the second most popular tourist destination in California, second only to Disneyland.

The setting is Miami. Rookie cop Tito Morales arrives at the Trianon hotel to investigate a routine disturbance call and, to his shock and horror, watches as a wealthy oil man plunges ten stories and impales himself on a nearby fence. Soon Morales is joined by detective Jimmy Paz, famous throughout the city for solving, or at least providing a plausible solution to, the so-called Voodoo Murders that left Miami burning months earlier.Together Paz and Morales enter the hotel and discover in the dead man´s room a most unusual suspect, an otherworldly woman by the name of Emmylou Dideroff. She emerges from a prayer-like state and says she wants to confess and asks for a pen and several notebooks.What Emmylou writes is nothing like what Paz expects. He enlists psychologist Lorna Wise in an effort to make sense of things that go beyond Emmylou´s explanation of the murder: details of childhood abuse, of other crimes committed, of regular communion with saints and with the devil. Is she mentally disturbed? Does she really believe herself to be an instrument of God? And why is it that so many people, including Paz´s biological father, are suddenly interested in the contents of these notebooks and in preventing them from becoming public?Emmylou´s ´´confession´´ leads Jimmy Paz, Lorna Wise, and Tito Morales down a series of unexpected and dangerous turns that forces them each to confront questions about faith, love, and the possibility of the miraculous. 1.

That all changed the day the neighbor from hell bought the shop next to his and began remodeling, destroying Gage´s well-ordered life in the process. It really was too bad she was so damn gorgeous...

Erik Anderson is paying for his mistakes and enduring every bit of pain that comes his way. After all, if it weren´t for him, the girl who gave him more than he deserved would still be alive. Even if he were to be put out of his misery, he´d never see her again. Considering angels go to heaven and sinners go to hell, Erik´s going to burn. Polly Madison has never had it easy. She wouldn´t even know what that looked like. Young and naive, she learned the hard way how vindictive some men can truly be. She´s fought her whole life for stability and control, both of which she refuses to give up ever again since she´s older and wiser now. When Polly and Erik run into each other in the most clichéd way possible, it shouldn´t have meant anything. In his arms, Polly felt safer than she ever has before. Lost in her eyes, Erik sees a future he´d given up on. They try to fight it. Try to deny something neither is prepared for. But when his own insecurities put her in harm´s way, Erik knows protecting Polly´s life is more important than continuing to wreck his.
