Gemma Jericho is an overworked New York doctor with a wearying teenaged daughter and a meddlesome mother. So when her mother receives a letter of a mysterious inheritance in Tuscany, Gemma throws caution to the wind and the three leave for Italy. She hopes the change of scenery will bring her daughter closer and get her mother off her back. What they encounter in Tuscany is a crumbling old villa and a town divided; half of the residents believe there is another rightful inheritor of the villa. As cultures clash, gossip soars, and intrigue unfolds, Gemma is caught up in the most disturbing--and delicious--trouble she's ever had.
