These Tangled Vines

A Novel by Julianne Maclean

Synopsis: 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.

Okay.. honestly, This was such a good read! If you are looking for something to read this summer, I think this is the one you need to pick up! It’s so fun and lighthearted, while also having a lovely depth to the story. I wasn’t able to put it down! This was the fastest I’ve read an entire book in a long while.

It was wholesome and just had such a lovely vibe. The sceneries and the locations were described so well that it felt like you were in the Tuscan countryside, enjoying wine in the vineyard.. I’ve never personally been but I feel like I would know how it feels to be there now.

The characters were so loveable and so vibrant, they just lept off the pages. You couldn’t help but just feel like one of them, I felt like I was in the story.. Like the drama was happening to a close friend! Even the characters that I don’t think were meant to be liked, you couldn’t help but feel bad for.

It was a lovely story of misunderstandings, regret, love, passion, mistakes, guilt, and just so so so much more. It was really so good! If you’re looking for a book that can make you feel things, I would absolutely get this one. Highly recommend.

I rate this book
