It's everything she loves, all under one roof. To make it even better, she's doing it with her best friends, Sally and Cora.

Just when they think they are close to opening Read Wine, strange things start to occur. Someone trashes their store mere days before they are to open. Then Sally gets stranded when someone puts sugar in her gas tank. And the competition in town is not happy another coffee option is opening.

Who has it in for them? Is someone trying to sabotage Read Wine?
