This brilliant and epic family drama disguised as a romance fills the senses. The scents of the bounty tantalize, the beauty of Sonoma is visualized and the touch of a hand or a kiss can be vividly felt, courtesy of Wiggs’ amazing narrative and supreme skill as a writer. Her enigmatic main couple and a charming cast of co-stars rule the pages.

As a provenance specialist at an auction house, Tess Delaney delves into other people’s pasts — partly because she finds her own so lacking. In an instant, she discovers a family she never knew, bringing up secrets and mysteries dating back before WWII. Tess is shocked to learn the grandfather she never knew is in a coma, and that she has been named to inherit his apple orchard in Sonoma, along with a woman named Isabel Johansen, her half-sister. She learns the news from a sexy and mysterious man, Dominic Rossi, who is a banker by trade but a vintner by passion. He’s content in his life without love until redheaded temptress Tess changes his mind. (MIRA, May, 432 pp., $24.95)
