…when it is dark and wet and freezing, I must remember this moment on Bingin Beach in Bali!

Bali, beeyotches. Surfing and Yoga. Staying at Mu.

The Apple Orchard

By Susan Wiggs

Tess Delaney’s life is upended when she discovers a family she never knew she had and a long-lost heirloom that could save their land and the business they’ve built since arriving in California just after World War II. As a treasure hunter on the cusp of reaching all her professional goals, Tess risks it all when she digs into her family’s past, uncovering secrets that may offer understanding, second chances and a shot at romance. Mixed in with the engaging contemporary storyline are flashbacks to Nazi-occupied Denmark and the noble actions of Danish citizens during the war. Intriguing, compelling and lovely.

— recommended by Bobbi Dumas, freelance writer, book reviewer and founder of Read-A-Romance Month
