Once I got involved in the book, I could not put it down, I HAD to know what was coming next!!! I liked to see how Clara, the main character, evolved in the story. I loved the description about Sardinia.....quite a few ideas if any of you want to travel to Sardinia.... and I enjoyed the description about the typical Italian family and the importance of food and meals for Italians!
If you enjoy traveling, food and stories with twists.....this is the read for you!
Also having been to Sardegna a couple of times, I was pleasantly reminded of the island's beauty and culture. If you have any doubts? It's a MUST read, even from a Norwegian!
The author did a good job of describing scenery and food dishes.
And I liked the little twist to the end of the plot.
The plot is an interesting one, varying between predictable and completely new. Or rather there are elements that are predictable. I would say the romance was a little, just because we've seen it a million times, but that doesn't mean the plot or writing is bad. I'll come back to this in a second, but I want to talk about the plot itself first. The concept is fantastic. I think the idea of a stranger coming into your life and making this kind of deal with you (not giving anything away) is original and thought-provoking and this mixed with the consequences (and some bad luck) lead to an unusual turn of events. The nonsensical logic and unlikeliness of it all are still realistic and kept me hooked.
Back to the romance. Anyone who loves a good, light romance novel will like this. It's nothing new, but mixed with the plot it works. And no one says it has to be new to work. There's a reason the old formulas are used.
The characters themselves- I have to admit, I didn't like at the start. They seemed a bit stereotypical and could sometimes be unnecessarily cruel and harsh, but they do grow on you and become more human as the story progresses and more is revealed about them and we see them deal with the good, the bad and the ugly.
Something of a side note here, but I also enjoyed the description of the foods mentioned. Our protagonist had a bit of a weakness for delicious food and doesn't spare the details when describing them. But be warned, you will want something delicious to munch on when reading this book.
Overall, I enjoyed the story. I wasn't immediately pulled in, but I'm glad I kept reading as I got a good read out of it. I would recommend this book to anyone with an interest in Italy or a lover of romance novels. If you're travelling to Italy soon and want a light, holiday read, why not try this one out.
