Book Review: Entangled by Melissa Brayden

Release Date: July 1, 2020
Publisher: Bold Strokes Books

Joey has big ideas for her family’s vineyard , Tangle Valley. She unexpectedly gets the chance to implement changes when the business becomes hers to operate.

Becca has just moved to town to manage the new elite resort opening close to the Tangle Valley Vineyard.

Right from the beginning, I felt a kinship with Joey. I could really relate to what she experiences early on. It provided an extra layer of depth for me as I followed along on her journey.

Good romance novels need to be believable and offer a good dose of chemistry. “Entangled’ hit a home run. Joey and Becca meet and have an instant connection but neither of them know they are adversaries of sorts. Satisfying reveals. Conflicts of interest. Overcoming preconceptions. Being vulnerable. Providing support. Making mistakes. Stubbornness. This book really provides the emotional upheaval that hurts so good. I had a good healthy cry there toward the end.

Brayden also excels at creating amazing supporting friend groups. This book sets the stage for future installments focusing on Joey’s two friends who end up working with her at her vineyard. In the same vein as the ‘Soho Loft’ and ‘Seven Shores’ series. Which is awesome, because those are my favorite and gives me something exciting to anticipate.

Overall, this is an affecting romance with a lot of heart. I can’t wait for future installments.

Bonus points to me for catching Brayden’s throwback to her book ‘Back to September.’ I read tons of books and NEVER realize when this happens. I’m always surprised when I read about stuff like this in other people’s reviews.

I recommend this book to people who love to read about romance, strong family relationships, good friends, wine, entrepreneurship, hotel management, quaint towns, and french fries.
