The Vineyard at Painted Moon: A Novel Kindle Edition
|New from||Used from|
“The Vineyard at Painted Moon feels like a story about courage—about making hard choices so that you can live an authentic life.”—Katherine Center, New York Times bestselling author of What You Wish For
Step into the vineyard with Susan Mallery’s most irresistible novel yet, as one woman searches for the perfect blend of love, family and wine.
Mackenzie Dienes seems to have it all—a beautiful home, close friends and a successful career as an elite winemaker with the family winery. There’s just one problem—it’s not her family, it’s her husband’s. In fact, everything in her life is tied to him—his mother is the closest thing to a mom that she’s ever had, their home is on the family compound, his sister is her best friend. So when she and her husband admit their marriage is over, her pain goes beyond heartbreak. She’s on the brink of losing everything. Her job, her home, her friends and, worst of all, her family.
Staying is an option. She can continue to work at the winery, be friends with her mother-in-law, hug her nieces and nephews—but as an employee, nothing more. Or she can surrender every piece of her heart in order to build a legacy of her own. If she can dare to let go of the life she thought she wanted, she might discover something even more beautiful waiting for her beneath a painted moon.
Don't miss The Boardwalk Bookshop by Susan Mallery! A heartfelt tale of friendship between three women brought together by chance who open a bookshop together on the boardwalk of the California beaches.

The HEA just popped up without much warning, leaving the reader to imagine what transpired between them that made them fall in love. Perhaps the focus on too many characters resulted in less interaction between the two main characters. Would have liked to read more about them . Also would have like the villain to have learned from her mistakes. As much time as was spent on her despicable character, it would have been nice to see her change her ways. Just saying......
Barbara, the matriarch who needs to always be in control to the detriment of her children and ultimately herself.
Rhys the son in the family, who married Mackenzie too young and becomes a friend rather than a husband, then resents the change in the relationship.
Stephanie, Lori, and Catherine aka Four, three daughters who want to please their mother, but when they try to dance to her tune, really can't, and deal with their mother's irritation with them in very different ways.
Mackenzie, the daughter-in-law. The prize. The pearl of great price. The one who has made the matriarch's dream a reality. The viticulturist who babies the grapes and then turns the juice into exquisite wine. A sought after vintner. A hard worker who loves the vines more than she loves some people.
Everything is fabulous, a fairytale, until Mackenzie and Rhys realize they're not lovers any longer, friends maybe, and both looking to change their situation. After living in the family compound for her whole married life, Mckenzie will be giving up her family if she moves. She only wants one thing...a part of the winery her wines have elevated to top of the line status. When it becomes clear that won't happen, Mackenzie has to make some tough decisions. Not only for herself, but for others.
A fabulous book by a masterful writer. I highly recommend!
I loved Mackenzie and Bruno oh least I not forget Stephanie too. But I had such a distaste for Barbara. I hated to see her name on the page.
I was in awe of all the vineyards and the wine all sounded so good.
Mallery out did her self on this one. You are in for a surprise and I was so happy how it all ended.
4 stars and I can't wait for Mallery's next book.
The heroine, Mackenzie is and uber talented winemaker who still has much to learn about life and her own heart. Very relatable and you root for her right from the get go. Add in a deliciously selfish mother-in-law and a clueless soon-to-be-ex husband and the stage is set.
I particularly liked this book because the heroine pursuing her own dream is right up there with the romantic element. Makenzie discovers her own strength and as she does so opens up to the love that is right in front of her.
As always Mallery delivers honest female friendships. I particularly loved Four (yes that is what she calls herself) and her wise and flamboyant style.
Wine pairing with this book? Of course you should.....make mine bubbles.
