Anne Marie Jackson has always dreamed of visiting Italy ever since she shared her first kiss with a dashing Italian exchange student in high school. Now, one divorce and one postcard from Giovanni later, Anne Marie follows her heart to Italy, where her former flame has promised to show her the sights. Giovanni is elusive but Marco Moretti, a mysterious, handsome Italian, seems to be everywhere. The persistent, irresistible Marco wants to find Giovanni as badly as she does so they team up to find him. And on the way they find something they didn't expect - love, Italian style.

Review

"A delightfully light-hearted romance about finding love again." -- Powell's Books

"Anne Marie is a delightful lead protagonist and the mysterious Giovanni will turn a heart or two..." -- Harriet Klausner On Line Review May 2003

About the Author

Carol Grace has written over twenty-five romance novels since 1989. Before that she worked in public TV doing promos for Julia Child (in French); then she sailed the world aboard the hospital ship Hope as a translator. Besides French, she has studied Spanish, Arabic, and Farsi, and she has taught in Iran and Algeria. After a lifetime of dreaming of Italy, listening to Italian opera, and watching movies like Roman Holiday, Carol was finally able to take a dream vacation on the spectacular Amalfi coast of Italy. Inspired by the warm, hospitable people, the luscious scenery and food, and the romantic atmosphere, she decided to set her next book, That's Amore, there. Carol lives on a mountain overlooking the Pacific Ocean with her husband, and she has a son in college and a daughter in law school.

3.0 out of 5 stars R Rated August 18, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love Carol Grace's stories and have eagerly read many. This wasn't my favorite, but not as other reviewers have written, because it is "poorly crafted" or too "predictable." I don't expect this kind of book to be a literary masterpiece and I didn't mind that I guessed part of the mystery. The point of the story wasn't the mystery, but the romance. It was still a fun read and the story was very engaging. I do agree with another reviewer who said this is "sexier than all the other Carol Grace books"...at least the ones I have read. I wish they had been less cryptic so I'll spell it out to help others know what to expect: there are a couple of sex scenes and the author gives some graphic details.

1.0 out of 5 stars Stilted writing & predictable plot April 21, 2012
By ireneQ
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Firstly I have to say that the title was very misleading because Marco is an undercover agent and whether or not he has millions is completely irrelevant to the story. The plot was very predictable - as some of the other reviewers have said, I guessed where the diamond was very early in the story. It was ridiculous that Marco could not have figured that out until the very last moment, especially since he is an experienced agent and has probably seen criminals try all kinds of ruses before.

Anne was annoying for being so incredibly naive and, as another reviewer mentioned, crying at the drop of a hat. She sounded so immature she could have been 18! The writing in general was stilted and didn't captivate me or draw me into the story. Nothing I read made me care about either Anne or Marco, especially because they lived so much in their own heads. I didn't sense any chemistry between the two of them; the emotions didn't come through in the writing. For once I didn't even care whether the couple would get a HEA! (But it is a romance, of course they do).

2.0 out of 5 stars Not quite... May 3, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This story seems to have been written as the ideas came to the author. There is the hope of a meeting, the expectation of finding a long lost love, but this fizzles so undramatically. But that is just one of the of the anticlimactic points of this book. There is a building up of feelings between the two main characters, but it is so drawn out that by the time they connect, you are not even that interested any more. Add to that the internal dialogue that meanders on, giving no real insight to the characters, just showing the musings of the writer, and you understand why I was squirming halfway through, just plodding on in stubbon determination to fininsh the meal in front of me like my mother made me when I was young. The fact that the main male character is a millionaire is a revelation made in the last two pages of the book, just as a afterthought, so that it could be mentioned in the title perhaps.
Painful, long, unexciting. There are more twists and turns in the business section of the newspaper, maybe you could give that a read instead, save yourself some frustration.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Lovely Italian Escape April 2, 2012
By Karen
Format:Kindle Edition
Anne Marie is someone most can easily relate to...just a common American woman who doesnt realize how special she is and just needs the right person to show her. How perfect to have her discover herself in Italy. This book is the best of both worlds...an enjoyable read and one that makes you think but not too hard. Her Italian Millionaire is a wonderful escape.

4.0 out of 5 stars Anne Marie Chocolates and Italy April 20, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you've never been to Italy, read this book. The depictions are so real that I could see everything through the writer's eyes. I enjoyed the story - love lost loves/longtime crushes/the one that got away - but this book went a step up and provided me with a romantic couple of nights after a hard days work.

Really boring and felt like a first book by a very inexperienced writer. I read it all to be fair.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mix up in the download? February 25, 2014
By Shay
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The book I just read was not at all what was described. I looked up the author's other books, and my download was the Prince and the Nanny, not Her Italian Billionaire (formerly known as Her Italian Millionaire.) I have no clue how that happened. The story I did read was okay.

An okay read. I'm Italian so I was able to enjoy the culture and people of Italy. The book was kind of silly, but amusing at the same time.
