"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 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 Happiness Plan, a new novel coming from #1 New York Times bestselling author Susan Mallery where three women experience hope, heartache, and the power of friendship as they search for true happiness!


  • Family Drama

    A great beach (or Napa vacation) read. Wines, family, friends, in-laws and outlaws. The protagonist is likable and relatable. Worth the read!!
  • Great book, but...

    By jenMHM10
    This is a wonderful story with interesting characters. I greatly enjoyed it, but the ending was rushed and abrupt.

  • The Vineyard and The Painted Moon

    By Laurie Cox
    Such a great book. Once I started I couldn’t put it down.
  • Don’t waste your time or money...

    By #FreeBird
    Cheesy, smarmy, snoozy drivel....totally unrealistic but at the same time totally predictable
  • Everyone can relate who has suffered a heartbreak

    By Tigressdana
    Anyone who has gone through a breakup can relate to Mackenzie’s heartache!! As she realizes her marriage is over she also realizes she is losing the only family she had left in this world. Thankfully two of her sister in laws supported her. Her other two and her mother in law were just mean! I’m glad she left them! The only thing I wasn’t a fan of was how her husband/ex-husband changed so much. He became a very mean and uncaring person. Which can happen in real life I just wasn’t expecting it in the book. But I love how Mackenzie grows throughout the book and takes charge of her own life and happiness. And builds her own, new, supportive family. As always Susan Malery helps you forget about your own troubles for a time and let’s you get lost in someone else’s world for a bit.
  • Winner!

  • Not my favorite

    It’s was something to read and occupy a few hours of my time I guess. But I feel I over paid for this book by $10 at least.
