When Kate’s husband Matt dumps her on Friday 13th she decides enough is enough – it’s time for her to have some fun and so she hops on a plane to Rome. A week of grappa and gelato in pavement cafes under azure blue skies will be just what the doctor ordered.
What she doesn’t count on is meeting and falling for sexy policeman Alessandro. But the course of true love doesn’t run smoothly – Alessandro has five meddling sisters, a fearsome mama and a beautiful ex Orazia. They’re all certain that Kate is not the girl for him.
Can Kate and Alessandro’s love last the distance? Or will she return home with the one souvenir she doesn’t want – a broken heart …
Kat's Rating: 4/5
Kat's Review: I love the Tilly Tennant books I have already read and was really looking forward to reading this latest release. Kate is the star of the show and as the story starts we see her husband soon become her ex-husband as he decides they aren't meant to be together any more. Fast forward a few months and Kate has made a bold decision. She is taking some holiday due from work and visiting Rome on her own. She decided that now she was on her own it was time to start doing things she wanted to do. When Kate lands at Rome airport she happens to run into a man named Jamie and they decide to share a taxi to the centre. That is the start of her remarkable holiday!
I fell in love with Jamie instantly and the descriptions of Rome were fantastic and have made me more excited about my own upcoming trip to Rome! During the course of her stay she also runs into local Policeman Alessandro and before you know it the two men involved seem to be turning her trip to Rome into something much more interesting. I also loved Alessandro's crazy sister, and the story thread involving Jamie and his trip to Rome.
I thought I knew where the story was going however there was a slight change to that and the story took a sad but unexpected turn featuring Kate's sisters. Although I loved this latest book it wasn't my favourite of hers (hence the 4 stars instead of 5) but it still a thoroughly enjoyable read. This book is an ideal easy read to get you in the mood for you holidays. I also would love to see more on the characters we met in this book whether it be Jamie, or Kate's sisters or indeed Kate herself. Another enjoyable book and I will look forward to the next one!
