Baker & Taylor
Learning about a mysterious inheritance in Tuscany, New York doctor Gemma, accompanied by her troublesome teen daughter and interfering mother, find themselves in a crumbling Italian villa in the midst of a disturbing culture clash.

McMillan Palgrave
Gemma Jericho is an overworked New York doctor with a handful of a teenaged daughter and a mother who worries that Gemma has no life. So when her mother receives a mysterious letter telling her about an even more mysterious inheritance in Tuscany, Gemma sees her chance: the three of them throw caution and convention to the wind and leave for Italy. Gemma hopes that a change of scenery will bring back the closeness she used to share with her daughter. And perhaps the challenges of living in a foreign country will give her mother something to worry about beyond Gemma's social life.

But what they encounter there is far more distracting than Gemma expected: a crumbling old villa and a town divided. Half the residents believe that Ben Raphael, another American, is the 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. And her summer in Tuscany will change her outlook-and her life-forever.

So-so. Story line is predictable. Writing is uninteresting, unpolished. Descriptions of Tuscany and culture are enjoyable.
