Editorial Reviews

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.

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.

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).

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.

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.

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.

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.

Alright, calling Marco, the hero in the story as James Bond 007 is overstating it. He is not a spy; rather, he is the equivalent of an FBI agent in the White Collar crime division. For the past two years, Marco has been after his childhood nemesis Giovanni who is a jewel thief but they don't have enough evidence to put him to jail.

Enter Anne Marie, a recently divorced librarian who was an old flame of Giovanni when he was an exchange student in California 20 years ago. Anne Marie is visiting Italy to see Giovanni with the hopes of rekindling a two-decade old flame.

But, instead of meeting Giovanni at the hotel, Anne Marie met Marco and a new flame began, overshadowing the two-decade flame. Yet, as the flame of love grew between Marco and Anne Marie, the question of whether Anne Marie was a courier of stolen goods or an innocent bystander continue to gnaw on Marco. For Anne Marie, the longer they stay together, she keeps on getting suspicious that Marco is not the simple tour guide he says he is.

Until the last few pages, the mystery continued and the ending is surprising!

In "That's Amore", author Carol Grace stepped out of her comfort zone and presented a romantic suspense. And, still true to her style, Ms. Grace fleshed out the characters, as Marco and Ana Maria (Italian translation of Anne Marie) came alive. Secondary characters - Nonna, Giovanni, Evie, etc. were also given the same care with characterization.
