Well, this has been a lovely little read!
Antonia Gray is a librarian and an instantly likeable character. When we meet her she is working in Tuscany having fled England after the break up of an unhappy relationship. She is leading a quiet life, immersing herself in her work and enjoying the company of her elderly employer and her surroundings. That is until Lorenzo makes an appearance and turns her world upside down.
Lorenzo isn’t as instantly likeable, although he soon grew on me 😉 , and his partner, Giselle, certainly isn’t! It’s sad to think there are women in this world just like her. It soon becomes obvious that Lorenzo is quite unhappy and his attraction towards Antonia is immediate. Antonia is understandably wary, but the chemistry between them soon becomes undeniable and romance starts to blossom. Could it all be too good to be true?
This book made me smile. I did also almost burst with happiness for these lovely characters, but it did make my heart break at one point. The raw emotion just seeped from the pages and I almost felt the pain myself.
Many thanks to the author and to Rachel @ Rachel’s Random Resources for my review copy.
happy reading 🙂
