Honestly, if you want a great vacation read, something light for the summer, read these books! You won’t regret it! They are wonderful to take your mind off of life, and get immersed in Italy and Italian families. This book makes me want to brush up on my Italian and move to Italy!
*I received an arc copy from the author in exchange for an honest review
The book opens with a traditional wedding, Alessandro’s sister Lucetta is to be married, the wild-child of the Conti sisters, Lucetta and her sister Abelie have befriended Kate, treat her as a person and someone deserving of the love of their brother. Unfortunately, while Mama Conti likes Kate, there is a remove there, one that Kate is desperate to overcome to be accepted into the family. Making that even more difficult is his sister Maria, who, taking the side of her best friend Orazia, has decided that Kate must go, and Orazia is the one for Alessandro. It doesn’t help Kate’s security in her new relationship that Orazia and Alessandro work together on the police force, and that truly, the Contis are the only people she knows: her limited skills (although growing) in Italian, and her inability to find a job beyond the few dresses she makes or alters isn’t going to pay the bills.
Overall, this book takes us through Kate’s efforts to make a home for herself in Rome, where she can support herself and make a new life with new people and friends. It’s her second chance, and one she takes seriously: she doesn’t want to go back to England and get “stuck’ in her memories, the close proximity to her ex and his new life: her determination to make something new of her life, unlike anything she imagined actually possible is her goal. And with a series of moments, trials and every one of her friends wiling to speak up for her when she should, but doesn’t has Kate growing up quickly and learning to fight for what she wants.
I devoured this book in hours: waiting to see how Kate would manage the wicked sister Maria and her friend Orazia, how she would finally pin her landlord Salvatore to the wall for some desperately needed repairs on her apartment, and if she could finally make her mark with her dressmaking, or if the trial as an estate agent with Shauna would draw her in other directions. With appearances from her sisters, her new friend Jamie and his partner, and the solid family feel in the Conti household as she works to convince everyone that she is different from their Uncle Marco’s ex-wife Michelle, the story doesn’t lack for dramas and moments. But, it’s as wonderfully complex in terms of characters, interactions and carries the same sense of hope and growth as the first: less of the lightness overall as the first, but a truly wonderful story that will keep you engaged and cheering Kate forward as she grabs her dreams one by one.
Take a chance and drop into the Italy that Tilly Tennant presents: full of life, laughter, atmosphere and love. Just don’t expect that you won’t want to adopt the phrase Non tutte le ciambelle riescono col buco (not all doughnuts come with holes) for it is true – life doesn’t bring what you expect, but you can enjoy (and learn to love) the new form!
I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher via NetGalley for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
I was very excited to go back to Italy and enjoy Kate's and Alessandro's story. I love their first story when they got to know each other and I really wanted to know hiw their lives are now.
Kate lives in Rome now, she gave up everything at home and is renting a little appartment. She is nit yet living with Alessandro, but they still spend a lot of time together. I enjoyed the scenes, where it was just the two of them the most, I think they are such a cute couple. Kate tries to improve her Italian, which is not always easy, especially with a landlord who pretends he doesn't hnderstand her English.mshe also has to find a job and there is Alessandro's family. She has won ove some of them, but Alessandro's mum and his sister Maria prove to be the hardest ones. They don't think she is here to stay and what about marriage?!
Alessandro's family is huge, which was fab to read about. I have Italian relatives too and visiting them is always gery interesting. There is also Alessandro's ex, who wants to break them apart.
An Italian wedding is also part of the story, which was a pleasure to read about. The writing really capturd the ambiance and the people around it.
This book has a lot of drama for sure, but it's all inclueded beautifully in the storyline, added with a lot of humour, passion and romance.
I really liked following Kate's journey in this book, she grew stronger and finally found her place in Italy.
Tilly Tennant's writing is heart warming, sweet, passionate, gentle and just amazing. I saw myslef there with the characters, she described the setting wonderfully and created this stunning Italian atmosphere full of love.
