"Wouldn’t it be a dream to inherit a wine estate in Europe? That’s what happens, most unexpectedly, to the character at the center of Julianne MacLean’s latest. This introspective, escapist story of tangled family secrets and the impact of our choices, all set to the backdrop of a sprawling Tuscan winery, will make you crave a glass of Chianti Classico and reflect on roads not traveled. Cin cin!
-- Kristin Harmel, New York Times bestselling author of The Book of Lost Names and The Winemaker's W


From the USA Today bestselling author of A Curve in the Road comes a sweeping and captivating tale of one woman’s journey to the lush vineyards of Tuscany—and into the mysteries of a tragic family secret.

If Fiona has learned anything in life, it’s how to keep a secret—even from the father who raised her. She is the only person who knows about her late mother’s affair in Tuscany thirty years earlier, and she intends to keep it that way…until a lawyer calls with shocking news: her biological father has died and left her an incredible inheritance—along with two half siblings.

Fiona travels to Italy, where the family is shocked to learn of her existence and desperate to contest her share of the will. While the mystery of her mother’s affair is slowly unraveled, Fiona must navigate through tricky family relationships and tense sibling rivalries. Fiona both fears and embraces her new destiny as she searches for the truth about the fateful summer her mother spent in Italy and the father she never knew.

Spilling over with the sumptuous flavors and romance of Tuscany, These Tangled Vines takes readers on a breathtaking journey of love, secrets, sacrifice, courage—and most importantly, the true meaning of family.
