Publisher's Summary

"Best book I've read in over 50 years... since A Tree Grows in Brooklyn." (LibraMystic)

A Pulpwood Queens Book Club Selection and Amazon Charts Best Seller

How well do we really know each other?

Red Mountain in eastern Washington is home to a community of eccentrics.

Otis Till, the area's visionary winemaker, has been known to howl at the moon - fully nude.

Single mother Margot Pierce moved across the country to build an inn, but so far all she does is binge on gelato, the Hallmark Channel, and fantasies of murdering her ex.

High school senior Emilia Forester is the daughter of celebrity parents struggling to build her own life outside of their shadow.

And Brooks Baker is a man haunted by his past spent living on the streets as an orphan. Somehow, everyone lives together harmoniously, their lives intertwined like the vines in Red Mountain's beautiful and renowned vineyards.

But in a place where everyone knows each other, secrets are like poison...and right now Otis, Margot, Emilia, and Brooks all have something to hide. When their secrets come to light and dysfunction ignites, will their small mountain be stronger for it - or will lives be torn apart?

Heartfelt, briskly paced, and wonderfully descriptive, Red Mountain is the story of four complicated people living in a beautiful landscape unlike anywhere else. Told from multiple perspectives and rich with vivid descriptions of wine life, this novel will transport you from the first word to the last.

Author should not insult the President

Not sure why this writer feels the need to have her characters insult the US President. I read to escape and I was quite annoyed about this. Not sure I’ll finish this book now.

A true soap opera

Full of trite cliques about wine country folks, bad sex scenes .
The narrator is not bad at the males voices but sounds like a bad Dame Edna impersonation for the female voices.
We are all flawed but this is ridiculous. Don’t bother.

Fun and full of surprises!

A good amount of action in an interesting setting if a developing wine country. Whoever made this sound like pornography in their review was way over reacting! There’s some sex, but it isn’t a major theme. I loved the story’

A fantastic listen you won't regret!

Refreshingly different, yet comfortable in a familial way. The howling thing was a little cooky, but otherwise, the story, the flow, the characters were all something or someone most of us can relate to on some level and kept me engrossed through to the last sentence.

No Thanks

I was disappointed to discover how different this book/audible was from Boo Walker's other book I read/listened to. The Singing Trees was very real, very compelling, meaningful, and a page-turner. Great plot and characters. I tried to get interested in Red Mt.'s characters and plot, but just couldn't. I didn't like them. When one crass character started talking trash, I said, "No thanks" not for me.
