These Tangled Vines: A Novel by [Julianne MacLean]

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.

USA Today bestselling author Julianne MacLean continues her Color of Heaven Series with another fast-paced, emotionally gripping tale that will move and inspire you.
Carla Matthews is a single mother struggling to make ends meet and give her daughter Kaleigh a decent upbringing. When Kaleigh’s absent father Seth—a famous alpine climber who never wanted to be tied down—begs for a second chance at fatherhood, Carla is hesitant because she doesn’t want to pin her hopes on a man who is always seeking another mountain to scale. A man who was never willing to stay put in one place and raise a family. But when Seth’s plane goes missing after a crash landing in the harsh Canadian wilderness, Carla must wait for news… Is he dead or alive? Will the wreckage ever be found?

One year later, after having given up all hope, Carla receives a shocking phone call. A man has been found, half-dead, floating on an iceberg in the North Atlantic, uttering her name. Is this Seth? And is it possible that he will come home to her and Kaleigh at last, and be the man she always dreamed he would be?

Amazon Review
5.0 out of 5 stars The Color of Hope, reviewed by Ms Duprey
I just finished reading this book which is one of a series. This story is about two identical twin girls who are separated at birth and live very different lives. They are united through unusual circumstances and is a heartwarming and touching story and at times brings tears to your eyes. I am sure you will enjoy this book along with the two previous books, The Color of Heaven and The Color of Destiny. They are books about hope and endurance. Thank you Amazon for introducing me to a whole new series of new authors I have never read before, but I have enjoyed them very much
