It was about 10 years ago that I read an excerpt of "The Villa" in Cosmopolitan Magazine, so I was instantly delighted to find it at my book club a decade later. Set against the backdrop of the wine business of the Giambelli-MacMillan family,it was quite an intersting read -- I learnt that wine-making entails a lot more than what I had previously thought. The novel is incredibly long, at times it was difficult keeping up with the various characters, and at some points, particularly in the end, the story felt rushed. I know the end was supposed to be a twist, and yeah the novel was already long, but to me there should have been something to give the culpritaway before she just confessed. Other than that, I liked it.
