A hilarious riff on coming-of-age much later in life with rock ‘n’ roll and wine!

Do you ever have a friend recommend a book, put it on your “to read” list, and then just forget about it? Don’t let Pairs with Life by John Taylor become one of those books. Just buy it now and then actually read it. Corbett Thomas is one of those guys who just has crappy luck. In everything. Epic failures in work, sometimes of his own making. Relationships that don’t take off the ground, not always of his own making. And often interesting life choices that make you question if it’s really bad luck. But despite being someone who could very easily be unlikable, Corbett has a self-awareness that makes him endearing and a love for his friends and family that let you know that despite his, at times, bumbling response to life, he’s a good guy with good intentions. He’s the kind of person you want to win in the end, in spite of it all. This story takes you through the ups and downs of following a passion in wine to live out a dream to own a vineyard. Set in the Napa Valley area, this book truly transports you into the heart of the wine industry, without feeling heavy handed. Although you’re living in the world of maybe-Master-Somm, Corbett Thomas, the plot, the characters, and the relationships are still relatable even if you’re not a cork dork. This book will have you laughing out loud, dabbing tears from your eyes, and feeling grateful you took the time to enjoy it.

It’s been a long time since I read a book that makes me laugh out loud, cringe just a bit and get a little teary all in the first few chapters! What an entertaining read with beautifully developed characters, and prose that made me feel as if I were standing in the middle of the story witnessing the adventure and mayhem. This book was pure enjoyment!
