40125084My Review:

You’re in for a treat…

A story about three sisters who have a strong family bond and love all things Italian. We meet Amanda, Sabrina and Louisa. They are all busy with life when a family death occurs and brings them back into each others arms in Italy.  I could feel the warmth of their cozy family home and smell the Italian cooking (bonus-recipes included in each chapter so get your grocery list ready).

The sisters can’t help but give some romance advice to each other and they each had their own story to tell in that department. My favorite sister was the youngest, Louisa, and her chance meeting of “Mr. Right” was just heart-warming.

The winter setting of Italy was charming and inviting. I was ready to pack up and head out. The descriptions of little coffee cafes and the snow-capped mountain backdrop was lovely.

If you crave the magic of Italy, sweet pastries and some amore, this should fill the bill.


Book Description:

Three sisters. One trip to Italy. The chance to change their lives.

Amanda has always taken the role of big sister seriously. She has her life in order; a fantastic job in a great restaurant, a wonderful house and a best friend who’s a Rockstar. But, Amanda’s beginning to realise that her life is missing one monumental piece…

Sabrina is living the high life in LA. Her Instagram is full of lavish parties, her tweets are brimming with celebrity names, but in reality she’s stuck behind a desk working for a boss who is determined to make her suffer. Is it time for her to stand up and take charge of her life?

Louisa has always been drowned out by her sister’s successes. As the university drop-out she’s always felt third best. But a chance encounter in a little Italian village may be about to change that…

When their beloved grandfather passes away these sisters are forced to take another look at their lives. These three sisters are about to embark on a journey of self-discovery that could just lead them down a road of romance (with a little help from the kitchen)!

Perfect for fans of Jenny Oliver, Carole Mathews and Lucy Diamond.

  1. This sounds wonderful Holly! Loved your descriptions. It made me hungry for food and the beautiful landscape. Thx for telling us about this one. Since I just recently bought a book by Carole Matthews, and it’s said that those who like her books should like this one, I’d probably enjoy it.
    I’ve missed your reviews. I’m recovering from surgery but slowly making my way back. 😊

  2. I crave all those things Holly. I would love to visit Italy, I just need to find someone to visit with me, not sure if I want to go with my daughter, I will have to find a special friend to share it with (not necessarily a man though).
