#BookReview: Midnight at the Wandering Vineyard by Jamie Raintree @jamieraintree #GraydonHouse

My Review:37007909

My first by the author and I am happy to report that I loved it!

It was the perfect book to cozy up to with my favorite glass of Merlot. The vineyard setting and whimsical touches made it an easy read. It was just the escape that I needed. Her writing flowed nicely with “just enough” details to make it immersive.

A perfect blend of women’s fiction/chick-lit and a bit of romance that had me wanting to get back to this one and find out if Mallory would follow her heart.

Themes of family dynamics, lifetime friendships, loss, and taking chances. I highly recommend if you enjoy these elements!

Book Description:

The follow-up to Raintree’s sparkling debut Perfectly Undone, MIDNIGHT AT THE WANDERING VINEYARD brilliantly meshes the provocative relationship fiction of Jennifer Weiner with the nuanced family dynamics of Karen White in this story of a young woman who reconnects with her estranged best friend to complete their teenage bucket list, but the man who came between them years ago reappears to challenge their bond once again.

A young woman at a crossroads in her life returns home to her family’s vineyard in California when tragedy strikes and reconnects with her estranged childhood best friend. They decide to complete the bucket list they created the summer they were 18, the summer that saw their friendship torn apart. But when the man who came between them all those years ago reappears, it challenges their fragile new bond and pushes each woman to confront past hurts and buried truths



  1. Beautiful review, Holly. This sounds like a wonderful read and the themes do interest me though I have a feeling that it could be a heartbreaking read. Glad you enjoyed this one.
