"In true Susan Mallery fashion, strong female characters, friendship, and family are at the center of THE VINEYARD AT PAINTED MOON. You're sure to laugh and cry along the journey and delight in the happy ending."—Robyn Carr, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Virgin River"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 ForStep 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.

Booklist Review: "On the night of the annual Summer Solstice Party, Mackenzie and Rhys Dienes realize that their marriage is over. They had been sleeping in separate bedrooms for the past five years, and sex is a distant memory. Seeing the passion of Rhys' mother, Barbara, and her new fiancée on display helps them finally acknowledge the truth. For Mackenzie, this decision is devastating because she loses not just her husband, but also possibly her job. Mackenzie is the winemaker for Bel Après, Rhys' family winery that Barbara runs with an iron fist. Even though Mackenzie has helped make the winery a great success, she knows that the divorce will change everything. What she doesn't know is how much the divorce will change her life for the better. Mallery is an expert at writing about strong women, their friendships, and their romances. This book has all of these elements, and, while readers may find it hard to sympathize with Mackenzie's privileged life, and Rhys is unfairly villainized, the friendships in the book are warmth and realistic, as Mallery's many fans will expect."
