The Apple Orchard by Susan Wiggs

The Apple Orchard by Susan Wiggs

Tess Delaney is happy with her high-pressure job as a recoverer of lost antiquities and single life in San Francisco.  That is until she finds out about the grandfather she never knew she had lying in a coma in Sonoma County; the unknown relative that will leave her half his apple orchard if he doesn’t pull through.  Tess goes to the small town of Archangel to meet her half-sister and see the life she has led in the country.  Tess has to decide where her heart belongs.


This is one of the few times I will suggest that you NOT get this one on audiobook.  The reader has problems keeping her accents straight.  There are supposed to be characters with Irish, Italian, German and Danish accents.  To my ear they seemed to flow together.  One character (supposedly Danish) sounded like an Irish-Gypsy to me.  It was rather confusing.

An enjoyable and pleasant story; what I would consider a good beach read.
