THE VILLA

Author(s): 

For generations the Giambelli family name has been synonymous with great wine. Tereza Giambelli, the legendary La Signora, is the iron hand behind the successful company. Years ago she married Napa Vintner Eli MacMillan and formed a partnership that benefited both of their companies.

Now Tereza and Eli have decided to merge the two companies, forcing their grandchildren to take on new roles. Sophia Giambellis forte has always been PR and marketing. Tyler MacMillan, on the other hand, would much rather be in the fields than trapped in an office. If they are to inherit the company together, each must venture into the others domain and learn new skills.

When Sophias estranged father is murdered, she becomes the prime suspect. Then a possible case of product tampering threatens to undermine the Giambelli reputation. Who hates the family enough to try and destroy them?

Take a mesmerizing trip through the vineyards of Napa and Italy as the amazing Nora Roberts delivers yet another exciting, sensuous and fantastic tale of love, murder, revenge and family. (Mar., 432 pp., $25.95)
