She sets off to stay with her Nonna (Grandmother), who lives in Italy, but doesn’t get the welcome she was hoping when she lands at the airport. She is bumped into and sent flying over her suitcase, splitting her lip and leaving her with an ‘egg’ on her head.
Joe Lancaster seems to have an issue with Sophia, as he literally keeps on bumping into her. He is staying with his uncle, helping out in his hotel by Lake Garda for the summer.
The two find comfort in one another, but neither are looking for love, but maybe love is looking for them?
Love at the Italian Lake, is a beautiful chick lit novel. It is as gorgeous on the inside, as it is on the out.
Sophia is a lovely young woman who worked all the hours she could to do well for herself, but that all came crashing down in a matter of minutes when she arrived home early. Just when she is down on her luck, she finds herself in a scenic little village by Lake Garda, Italy, with her Nonna, and the gorgeous Joe just down the road.
However, not everything is that simple. A hidden family secret is revealed, leaving Sophia not knowing what to do to for the best. Does she let the people concerned know?
Joe also has a lot of personal issues going on in his life too, especially with his parents. His dad has dementia and his mum is sticking her head in the sand about it, and won’t take an offer of help.
Lake Garda is a place of beauty. The sparkling water glimmering in the sun, the scent of the Italian baked goods at the market, and the friendly locals. It is a definite, wish you were there novel.
This is a charming story with a lot of heart. It was a joy to read, and I found myself transported to Italy every time I picked the book up, taking me away from the miserable rainy city I was actually in.
There are plenty of warm, inviting characters to get to know, and a flawless plot to lose yourself in. Ms. Boleyn always manages to put a smile on my face with her entertaining, warm novels and this one is her best yet.

*I received a free copy of this book, which I voluntarily reviewed
This time we travel to Italy .. Love at the Italian Lake is set near the wonderful Lake Garda. Sophia goes to stay with her Nonna after discovering her cheating boyfriend in a compromising position. Maybe it was the nudge she needed though to have a drastic change in lifestyle.
Arriving at the airport, stepping out into the sudden heat (gosh I felt that) Sophia is literally knocked off her feet by a hunky man. As soon as they meet it becomes apparent that her and Joe will have some kind of chemistry but that’s the beauty of a romance book, you know what you are likely to get.
Sophia and Joe are both nice believable characters, both harbouring secrets and difficulties with a distinct lack of trust but they become friends.
There are some very cute humorous moments .. I really felt for Sophia in the boat and sun-cream incident but also giggled, it was so expertly portrayed. I was urging this couple to just give each other a chance. They are in a stunning setting, it’s summer, romance should be in the air.
I adored Nonna, we could all do with a sprightly Grandma like her who could just wrap us up in a hug and make everything ok. This book is just perfect for a leisurely read, preferably on a sunbed somewhere but if that fails it will whisk you away to the balmy destination in your dreams anyway.
Another winner from Darcie .. thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for my copy which I read and reviewed voluntarily.
This is a lovely, heartwarming novel set in Malcesine on the shores of Lake Garda. It is also a perfect choice for TripFiction because Italy and the little town are beautifully brought to life for the reader within an enjoyable story.
Sophia Bertoni is in dire need of a break. Lee, her boyfriend is a cheat. Enough is enough, and Sophia is soon persuaded to go and stay with her Grandmother – Nonna Katherine Spinoli – in Malcesine, on the shores of Lake Garda. As she arrives in the airport she literally gets knocked sideways at the airport in Verona (physically, but maybe also emotionally, let’s wait and see!) by Joe Lancaster, who as it transpires, is also spending the Summer on the same Lake, in the same town.
Sophia’s Mother and her grandmother have never really been close and it is whilst Sophia is staying in Malcesine that she stumbles upon a family secret which needs quite some emotional processing.
This novel has all the ingredients (and I haven’t even got to the foodie bits yet!) for a wonderful summer read, with a bit of romance and beautiful scenery thrown in. The markets are redolent of Italian groceries and colour – you can almost see them in your mind’s eye. Just how do you choose between all the cakes, whether it is cannoli or zeppole. Or all those vegetables just oozing colour and flavour. Or accompany Joe on the cycle route from Navena to Castelletto di Brenzone; or with Sophia from the harbour to Castello Scaligero. As readers we are taken with exuberance to this beautiful part of the world. Just sit down with a good Espresso and enjoy.
