Come home to Ladybug Farm, the place for everyone who has ever had a friend... or a dream.
Four years have passed since best friends Cici, Bridget and Lindsay left the suburbs for an old mansion in the Shenandoah Valley. They've survived broken plumbing, leaky roofs, and marauding sheep. They've faced fire, hail, snow, and financial set-backs. Yet somehow through it all they've managed not only to build a home, but a family. And now, much to their amazement, all their dreams seem to be coming true. The vineyard has been restored and Ladybug Farm Winery is on the verge of bottling its first vintage. Their friends Paul and Derrick are building a house next door. High school and college graduations are just around the corner for the two young people they have shepherded for the past four years. Life couldn't be more perfect. But Ladybug Farm still holds a few surprises for them all...
Someone is getting married.
Someone is keeping a monumental secret.
And someone is leaving Ladybug Farm forever.
Vintage Ladybug Farm is Ladybug Farm at its best: heartwarming, heartbreaking; filled with compassion, humor and hope. Welcome back to Ladybug Farm, where dreams never die.

I've read all of the other books in the Ladybug series. This one was as enjoyable as the others. I look forward to the next one.
Another terrific book which continues the series and draws you in from the start. Can't wait for another book.
I hope this series never ends, and Vintage Ladybug Farm was outstanding! I have treasured my time reading this heartfelt and warm story of Ladybug Farm. I have read all the books in the series and each and every one was 5 star rated! (Even The Hummingbird House (2013) which was excellent. I actually read Hummingbird first, since was new (not actually a part of the series, but the same characters). I then read all the others in series order and this was the last one. I am so sad it ended. Will be anxiously awaiting more after The Hummingbird House as the characters are rich in history and character. I want to hear more from Lori (and Italy/Sergio), where Noah ends up, how the winery turns out, and of course a beautiful wedding with Dominic/Lindsey, Cici, Bridget and their plans with the house and winery, restaurant, gift shop, and most of all cannot wait to hear more from Paul/Derrick (as love these guys)! Also would love to hear more about Ida Mae’s life (what a story it would be)! You can tell Donna loves life as her creativity and storytelling is brilliant. These are the type books I love and so glad I found her. I look forward to reading more of her other series and books and will be looking forward to more from Ladybug Farm and Hummingbird House. Since I have worked with B&B Inns, resorts, and hotels for the last 25 years, I adore everything about these books as so realistic as having worked with (marketing, web, interior design, renovation, etc) and one historic property inn (FL) 18 cottages (all over a hundred years old) --something happens every day which is unexpected. I also worked with another historic project with 22 cottages and inn (GA) and between the renovations and the guest there are surprises every day. When you have passion for properties such as this, you thrive on it! I highly recommend this series and you will not want to miss a book as each is as good as the previous one—PLEASE Donna, continue the good work and writing --keep these characters alive. I love them so much I am ready to plan a trip to Virginia with my own white rocking chair for the porch! PS loved the many funny woman quotes – this will make you laugh and cry at the same time and leaving you smiling long after the book ends. There is always a lesson to be learned, and Donna portrays them so well! My favorite series and so movie worthy!
