I enjoyed the quietly mounting tension of impending relationship danger, instead of impending life-threatening danger. Reading the book was relaxing and absorbing, and an engaging journey through earthy, American Italian cultures and glitzy beautiful Italian landscapes and cultures. The hero is so delicious and romantic, especially in the romantic and yet sizzling love scenes.
The development of the relationship between Dia and her mother added a great subplot that echoed the main plot in many ways, and quite naturally built up the revelation of Dia’s reasons for being the way she is.
I liked being inside Dia’s head, and inside Carlo’s. In either character, I felt what they felt, saw what they saw. Of course one of the highlights of being in Dia’s head was getting on a gorgeous sailing yacht in the blue waters off Italy.
There’s a cute child in the story as well, very young, and very charming. Two families come together in fits and starts in this romantic yet realistic tale. A warm, enjoyable read, Corsica Gate is perfect for staying cozy during the winter months.
I'll tell you what I love, when I can tell the author enjoyed writing a story. It's apparent from the first page that Robena Grant thoroughly enjoyed writing this book and these characters. Her marvelous attention to detail proved it. That fact made me smile while I read.
Dia Sophia (don't you love that name?) has been jilted and finds herself living with her mother (quite a character herself) in Little Italy in San Diego for six months. She agrees to go to her brother's wedding with a man who needs a date, and she'd rather do that than go alone. Enter Carlo. But there are similarities between Carlo and the man who jilted Dia - both men have mothers who look down their noses at Dia and her family roots - and she really doesn't want to travel that road again.
She talks Carlo's sister, who is still grieving from the loss of her military husband, into going to Italy with her, and gets intimate with Carlo (a very sexy scene) just before the story shifts to another continent.
Then, as we say, the fun begins. Descriptions of the Italian experience were so realistic, I felt I was there. A surprise or two keeps the reader turning the pages. The biggest moment of all, visiting Corsica's Gate, making that wish, didn't disappoint. I loved how Dia was able to finally grasp where her life had gone off track, and accept it was time to do something about it.
All things considered, the story of Corsica's Gate was bellissimo!
