Sun, spaghetti and sparkling prosecco. When it comes to finding love, there’s no place like Rome…
Kate is living the dream with her gorgeous boyfriend Alessandro in his native city, but the reality is sometimes a little less romantic than she’d hoped. Every day in her new home is a fight against leaking pipes, her cantankerous landlord and her less-than-perfect grasp of the Italian lingo.
All around her there is talk of weddings, but when a secret from her past is thrust out into the open, Kate must fight to prove to Alessandro’s Mamma – and the rest of his formidable family – that she truly is Italian marriage material.
With the women in Alessandro’s life on a mission to break them apart, the cracks begin to show and Kate starts to question if Alessandro really is the man of her dreams. Can love and the city of romance conquer all, or is that just a fairy-tale?
Let Rome steal your heart this summer in this gorgeously romantic escapist read. Perfect for fans of Jo Thomas and Abby Clements.
Thank you to Kim for letting me be part of this tour and Bookouture for my copy via Netgalley. I adore Tilly’s books and when I heard there was a second book in this series I had to have it.
Not long after we leave Kate and Alessandro at the end of book one do we return in book two. Kate is now living in Rome but life isn’t quite what she was hoping for. A job still alludes her, She doesn’t quite feel accepted by the Conti’s and Orazia is most definitely not giving up on Alessandro. Kate really does have the worst luck and I couldn’t help but feel sorry for her at times.
I enjoyed being back in Kate and Alessandro’s world. I loved Lucetta and Gian’s wedding. The villa for the reception sounded magical.
I also enjoyed meeting Salvatore and Nunzia and of course seeing Jamie again was such a treat. Getting to see more than just central Rome was also exciting.
I loved seeing the characters develop in this story and I would love to see a book for the youngest Conti sister.
