What mystery haunts the Rutledge Estate, one of the most prestigious vineyards in Napa Valley? What secret has Kelly Douglas, one of prime time's most popular newscasters, kept locked inside for so many years? In Tangled Vines, Janet Dailey's riveting new novel, the lush vineyards of Napa Valley, California, and the city lights of Manhattan are the backdrops for the mesmerizing story of television news personality Kelly Douglas and vintner Sam Rutledge, and the passions and secrets that surround their lives and the Napa wine country.

display_description Elegant ninety-year-old Katherine Rutledge runs her family's Napa Valley winery. Her estranged son runs a rival winery, and an alcoholic neighbor, Len Dougherty, lives on ten acres of the Rutledge vineyard given to his family as compensation for the accidental death of his father. Meanwhile, beautiful, ambitious Kelly Douglas, a rising TV newscaster, is assigned to prepare an in-depth report on the Rutledge winery, which is in negotiations to merge with a French winery. Kelly long ago escaped Dougherty, her physically abusive father, and doesn't want to go back home. Then there is a murder, in which her father is the prime suspect, while complications arise regarding a budding romance with Sam Rutledge, Katherine's grandson and the manager of the Rutledge winery.
