Description

A NEW ORIGINAL HALLMARK MOVIE: THE SECRETS OF BELLA VISTA!
From #1
New York Times Bestselling Author Susan Wiggs
"...sweet, crisp and juicy."—Elin Hilderbrand
"A powerful story of love, loss, hope and redemption."—
Kirkus, Starred Review
Tess Delaney makes a living restoring stolen treasures to their owners. People like Annelise Winther, who has just been reunited with her mother's long gone necklace, worth a sum that could change her life. To Annelise, whose family was torn apart during WWII, the necklace represents her history, and the value is in its memories.
But Tess's own history is filled with gaps: a father she never met, a mother who spent more time traveling than with her daughter. Then the enigmatic Dominic Rossi arrives on her San Francisco doorstep with the news that the grandfather she never knew is in a coma and that she's destined to inherit half of his apple orchard estate called Bella Vista. The rest is willed to Isabel Johansen, the half-sister she didn't know she had.
With Dominic and Isabel by her side, Tess discovers world where family comes first and the roots of history run deep. A place where falling in love is not only possible, but inevitable. And in a season filled with new experiences, Tess begins to see the truth in something Annelise once told her: if you don't believe memories are worth more than money, then perhaps you've not made the right kind of memories.
Wiggs deftly weaves a narrative that takes the reader from present day California to Denmark during WWII to tell a story of family ties both old and new—and the moments that connect our hearts.

        As Wiggs (Fireside) begins a new series, Magnus Johansen, an elderly orchard owner in Sonoma, California, has a fall, the effects of which cascade through many lives and reveal numerous secrets. Young, driven Tess Delaney never knew her father and rarely sees her traveling mother. While preparing for a potentially life-changing meeting, she receives news that she is to inherit half of a major apple orchard from an unknown grandfather and that she also has a half-sister. The shock triggers a panic attack that sends her to the hospital where she is admonished to make serious lifestyle changes. Complicating matters is that the messenger, Dominic Ross, is a handsome banker and longtime friend of Magnus. When the fiercely independent Tess goes to meet Isabel, her half-sister, she is thrust into a close community of caregivers, beginning with Magnus, whose reputation dates back to his childhood in wartime Denmark. As Isabel and Tess sort through old papers, they discover an intricate web of secrets that not only bind them together but make the new happier Tess realize Magnus has also taken care of her. This is classic Wiggs, with its emphasis on the strength of family and friends, and a landscape integral to the plot.
