The story starts with a break-up. Skye decides to end it with her boyfriend Zack, fearing that he would break her heart because of his ‘reputation’ and a previous unsuccessful marriage. It was really saddening to read, especially knowing how much Zack cares for her and feels like she’s his one and only. Trying to overcome the heartbreak, Skye agrees to go to Italy with her extremely wealthy friend Leona, and never expects to meet Zach in the same exact city where the two girls stayed. Since that moment I kept holding my breath, hoping for Zack to win Skye back, despite all the obstacles that seemed to appear on their way. I’m not going to ruin the ending, but let me just say that it was perfect.
What I also appreciated was not only the love story, which was of course the center of the novel, but another message the author so nicely delivered on Zack’s example: follow your dream, no matter if it’s your girl or your vocation, take risks and you’ll be rewarded. Excellent book! Highly recommended!
A Portrait of my Love takes Skye on a search to identify her feelings. She wants independence, but is it self-sacrificing to give up Zack for this? Will Zack appear in Italy and win her heart? Skye must make a choice.
A Portrait of my Love, Lake Garda Series #1, is a complete story, but I look forward to talented Jennifer Young's next book in the seriew.
Based in Italy, around Lake Garda the author couldn’t have picked more beautiful setting and she didn’t skimp on her descriptive tones, she brought the Italian beauty of some of the world’s most stunning scenery to life at my fingertips.
Zack and Skye are completely perfect for each other but like you would expect in a romantic novel, it isn’t that easy. There is an unsettling undercurrent that seems to threaten any chance they have.
I got that her relationship with Zack was a gamble, he had been married before and wasn’t exactly known for being the shy retiring type but he had found his forever with Skye, that he knew and the fact that she wasn’t willing to accept that love was a real shame.
Walking away from Zack and heading off to Italy on a vacation with her best friend Leona, has Skye seriously in my bad books, really woman what are you thinking. I get that she hasn’t had much guidance on what it is actually like to love someone but surely she must be able to hear what her own heart is saying or is it that she just doesn’t like what it has to say?
Italy holds a lot of secrets, the least of which is the fact that Zack turns up in the same place and the biggest of which is the feud that is raging between Leona’s family and the Family that owns the hotel where they happen to be staying.
Now, nothing good comes from that sort of malice, and Skye and Leona are slap bang in the middle of it. Will the subterfuge that surrounds the whole situation mean that the two of them have bitten off more than they could possibly chew in beautiful Italy?
Does absence make the heart grow fonder well who knows because with Zack being nearby mean I couldn’t help but think that Skye would regret her decision to walk away and change her mind?
I wanted her to actually feel for him what he felt for her but I just didn’t know that with everything that was going on she had it in her.
And what the heck will happen between her and Leona because family drama has put Skye is what can only be described as a dangerous situation, how much of that did Leona know before they arrived.
I think this has a fairly broad appeal but I have to say that I think that this can easily be described as a proper romance.
