Kennedy Cafés & Chocolate Emporium is about to celebrate it’s centenary year. Four generations of Kennedy’s have successfully mastered the favours of chocolate and coffee. Now, Owen Kennedy is expanding the family business into the world of wine.
The Boselli family’s estate is set in the hills of Lake Garda, Italy, which house, Casa Boselli’s vineyard and olive groves. It appears to be the perfect union – two power families of Ireland and Italy coming together. However as the taste buds are awakened with new possibilities, other desires are also ignited.
Ruby Hart, is Owen’s right-hand woman and when he asks her to join him in Italy, she doesn’t hesitate. What better way to escape her complicated personal life than a month in Italy getting paid to drink wine?
Ruby soon finds herself in entangled in more than, Owen Kennedy’s business affairs. In the midst of a web of lies, family feuds and friendship, is the added complication of the amorous farmhand, Titsiano who is determined that Ruby experiences the true taste of Italy - Titsiano style.
While her husband and friend build relationships and business in Italy, Katherine Keogh Kennedy visits a coffee plantation where the heat and dark intensity of Kenya arouses feelings she’d thought she’d lost forever. It seems that the Kennedy’s passions lie everywhere but with the continued success of their business.
With her own secrets to protect and her loyalties divided can Ruby be the one to save, Kennedy Café & Chocolate Emporium and ultimately the Kennedy family from being destroyed by, the other woman. But then again, who exactly is, the other woman? All may be not be as it first appears.
