Synopsis: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. (Synopsis from Goodreads)
My Thoughts: This is a novel about starting over and taking chances and I really enjoyed it. Mackenzie and her husband have admitted that their marriage is over, which is unfortunate because she also works for her husband's family winery. She now has to decide whether to stay where she is, or move on. Mackenzie's story is very interesting and heartwarming to follow.
I really liked how much we got to learn about what goes on in a winery in this book. I have no knowledge of that skill set, so I really enjoyed learning about it and seeing how it all works.
I thought this story was really sweet. It was a book that was fun to spend my time on. I was rooting for Mackenzie the whole time.
Susan Mallery wrote a great story that I definitely enjoyed reading. If you're looking for something to make you feel good, I'd definitely recommend picking it up.
