About this item


Book Synopsis

Three best friends decide to open a wine bar in Echo Park LA, where they encounter the trials and tribulations of dating, love, and life in Kim Gruenenfelder's Love the Wine You're With.

Balancing moments of profound wisdom with pithy observations, Love the Wine You're With will brighten your day faster than a glass of chardonnay." --Jennifer Lancaster, New York Times bestselling author of Bitter Is the New Black and The Tao of Martha

"Gruenenfelder's women are smart, likable and good to each other." --Kirkus Reviews

Jessie is finally about to realize her life-long goal of owning her own house, the first step to a wonderful marriage, kids, and life with her boyfriend of three years, Kevin; except after they find the perfect place, Kevin suddenly gets cold feet.

Nat is having a passionate affair with her gorgeous British boss Marc--unfortunately, he's married. Now what?

Holly is an actress who still waits tables to pay the bills, and who is coping with the recent loss of her father. A particularly bad audition, where she snaps and tells off a big director, leads her to wonder what to do when you stop loving what you do. (And also what to do about her hot neighbor. Because, you know, hot neighbor.)

After each girl finishes a particularly awful workday, the three friends meet at their favorite wine bar, which has been sold by its owner for a huge profit and will close that night. In a moment of tipsy brazenness, Jessie suggests that the three of them open their own wine bar in the gentrifying Echo Park area of Los Angeles. An unapologetically girly place for good wine and good friends--which leads to a challenge for each woman: how do you fix a life that's not actually broken, but needs an upgrade?

Review Quotes

Praise for Kim Gruenenfelder:

"Kim Gruenenfelder is an engaging storyteller and this book embodies everything Iadore about women's fiction! Her characters are smart, funny, and relatable; she's created the kind of perfectly imperfect women I'd want to spend time with in real life. (I would so frequent their winebar!) Balancing moments of profound wisdom with pithy observations, Love the Wine You're With will brighten your day faster than a glass of chardonnay." --Jennifer Lancaster, New York Times bestselling author of Bitter Is the New Black and The Tao of Martha

"Love the Wine You're With is an equal mix of light humor, hot romance and reflections on friendships among women.... A good summer getaway, like listening to a playlist of favorite pop songs.... [A] light, refreshing summer cocktail of a book. Or maybe like a good glass of wine while on vacation in Southern California." --The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

"Written with a wickedly wry sense of wit and graced with an engaging cast of characters, this bright and breezy novel is the literary equivalent of a frothy daiquiri and every bit as refreshing." --Reader to Reader Online on Keep Calm and Carry a Big Drink

"[Gruenenfelder's] women are smart, likable and good to each other." --Kirkus Reviews on There's Cake in My Future

Fabulously funny, truly moving and beautifully written, I loved this book. More cake please! --Gemma Townley, author of Little White Lies on There's Cake in My Future

Charming, heartwarming, wry and whimsical...This is better than double chocolate fudge cake. --Beth Kendrick, author of Second Time Around on There's Cake in My Future

Delightfully funny... loaded with hilarious one-liners... [and] filled with tips for the heroine's future great-granddaughter that are insightful and witty. --Romantic Times (4 stars) on Misery Loves Cabernet

A Total Waste of Makeup is the perfect love guide for every girl (and their granddaughters and grandnieces). --Cecilia Ahern, author of P.S. I Love You and Rosie Dunne on A Total Waste of Makeup

Gruenenfelder, a Hollywood screenwriter, knows her setting and her craft. Well-written characters and a wicked sense of humor help this debut stand above the usual chick-lit fare. --Library Journal on A Total Waste of Makeup
