BEEKEEPER'S BALL by Susan Wiggs
Do you like to talk about the books you enjoy reading with others? Then join us the second Monday of each month at 2pm for reader-to-reader book discussions, informal fun, and sharing with fellow fiction lovers. In this month's selection, Isabel Johansen, a celebrated chef who grew up in the enchanting Sonoma town of Archangel, is transforming her childhood home into a destination cooking school—a unique place for other dreamers to come and learn the culinary arts. Bella Vista's rambling mission-style hacienda, with its working apple orchards, bountiful gardens and beehives, is the idyllic venue for Isabel's project…and the perfect place for her to forget the past.
But Isabel's carefully ordered plans begin to go awry when swaggering, war-torn journalist Cormac O'Neill arrives to dig up old history. He's always been better at exposing the lives of others than showing his own closely guarded heart, but the pleasures of small-town life and the searing sensuality of Isabel's kitchen coax him into revealing a few truths of his own.
No sign-up is required. Refreshments will be served. Come meet with other adults who like to read and discuss lighter fiction.
