"Sun, spaghetti and sparkling prosecco. When it comes to finding love, there’s no place like Rome…
Kate is living the dream with her gorgeous boyfriend Alessandro in his native city, but the reality is sometimes a little less romantic than she’d hoped. Every day in her new home is a fight against leaking pipes, her cantankerous landlord and her less-than-perfect grasp of the Italian lingo.
All around her there is talk of weddings, but when a secret from her past is thrust out into the open, Kate must fight to prove to Alessandro’s Mamma – and the rest of his formidable family – that she truly is Italian marriage material.
With the women in Alessandro’s life on a mission to break them apart, the cracks begin to show and Kate starts to question if Alessandro really is the man of her dreams. Can love and the city of romance conquer all, or is that just a fairy-tale?"
After reading Book 1, I couldn't wait to get started on this. I was keen to find out how Kate's life was going - I love it when a character stays in your mind even after you've finished reading.
As I settled back into the warm embrace of Rome I felt like I had never been away. The characters were familiar and the writing style was comforting. Kate on the other hand wasn't quite so comfortable, unfortunately her Italian dream wasn't exactly going to plan. Poor Kate faced one complicated situation after another and for a while it seemed as though everything was against her.
My reactions mirrored Kate's when Jamie got in touch, he was a favourite of mine from the first book so I was excited about his return. I'll simply say it was everything I had hoped for!
The author has a very natural way of holding your interest with her words and before you know it you're almost halfway through the story. Just one more page...
This was a fabulous follow-up book, warm and inviting with lots of drama. A perfect holiday read.
