Brief recap: Tess is informed by Dominic Rossi, an attorney for her Grandfather Magnus Johansen that Magnus is in a coma and she has been named in his will and must return to a small town called Archangel in Sonoma County. Tess is drawn more and more into the beauty of Bella Vista and a sister Isabel she never knew existed.
As the story develops Tess falls in love with Dominic Rossi and as The Beekeepers Ball opens, everyone is preparing for Tess and Dominic’s wedding. Isabel is an accomplished chef and ready to open a cooking school at Bella Vista.
As if planning the wedding and preparing for the school to be perfect, enter biographer Cormac O'Neill who was asked to write about Magnus and his experience with the Danish resistance in WWII and his life at Bella Vista.
Cormac's knack for uncovering truths, Isabel learns more about her grandfather's tragic past, including how he lost his parents and grandfather during the Nazi occupation of Denmark and how he came to meet her now deceased grandmother and another dear friend Annalise Winter.
The Beekeepers Ball is several storylines in one, the marriage of Tess and Dom, Isabel struggling to overcome her struggle with her insecurities while slowly falling in love with Cormac. A new beekeeper Jamie Westfall who arrives with no home, pregnant and very young who fits into the family.
I look forward to the next chapter of Bella Vista; Apple Orchard and Beekeepers Ball left many storylines open to many books to come.
