A Chicago reporter in her mid-twenties unexpectedly finds love in Napa Valley when she’s assigned to spend a week with a famously reclusive genius.
Kate Corbin has lost her spark. From the outside, her life seems charmed. She has a handsome, long-term boyfriend and a budding journalism career at a popular Chicago newspaper. But in reality, her relationship is going nowhere, and she’s quickly losing motivation for what she once believed was her dream job. When her boyfriend dumps her unceremoniously, Kate loses all hope of finding love.
With no living family and few friends, Kate confides in her boss. Trusting that the hungry, ace reporter is buried somewhere deep inside, he gives Kate the opportunity to jumpstart her career. The assignment: to interview the famously reclusive R.J. Lawson, a wealthy tech genius who disappeared years ago but recently reemerged as a Napa Valley vintner. The week takes an unexpected turn, however, when Lawson refuses to divulge any information. Desperate for a lead, Kate turns to Jamie, a vineyard hand who shows her the romance of wine country—and stirs her aching heart. But his connection to Lawson is ambiguous, and when Jamie disappears before the end of the week, Kate is left to investigate another story: the truth behind the man who stole her heart.

If i had to describe Nowhere but Here in one word it would be
Ever since reading the last word in Sweet Thing, I knew I had to have whatever it was that Renee was working on next. She is one truly gifted writer. In Nowhere but Here she paints to completely different pictures yet I was able to clearly visualize both settings with ease. When it comes to setting a tone or pace this book did that better then any I have read before. I went through the same emotions as Kate, I felt what she felt, there was one point of the story that I was literally bouncing as I read it in anticipation with Kate (you'll know it when you get there). Jamie sweet Jamie FREAKING ADORE him. He is everything you could ask for, the bad boy without the bad. When Kate makes that observation it was one of my favorite moments.
If you read Sweet Thing you have an idea of what to expect from Renee, emotions, amazing characters, epic love and real life.
I couldn't have asked for anything more.
