Product Description:

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?



Holly, Nat, and Jessie – best friends for years – are ready to make some changes in their lives. Holly is tired of struggling to make a living as an actress in Los Angeles, but if she gives up her dream of making in showbiz, what will she do instead? Jessie thought she was taking the first step in a permanent future with her boyfriend Kevin by buying a house with him until Kevin decides to take a long-term job in Denmark. Nat knows there is no future in continuing to engage in an affair with her very sexy but very married boss, but somehow she finds it impossible to resist taking his calls. So when the opportunity to purchase their neighborhood wine bar suddenly comes up, the three friends see the chance to make some changes in their lives by pooling their resources and buying it together.

Gruenenfelder not only continues to display a remarkable flair for creating realistically flawed yet incredibly endearing characters, but she also has an impeccable sense of comic timing that gives her latest brilliantly written women’s fiction novel its distinctively tart literary flavor. Love the Wine You’re With is a wryly wise tale that deftly explores the complicated intricacies of female friendships as well as the risks of taking second chances in life.
