My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Can a holiday romance ever have a happy ending? Escape with Kate to the sun-drenched city of Rome where a love affair is just about to begin …
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 …
Fall in love with the colourful cafes and the cobbled piazzas of Rome and follow Kate’s dreams and her heart in this enchanting escapist read. Perfect for fans of Debbie Johnson and Carol Matthews.
Thank you to Netgalley and bookouture for providing me with an advanced review copy. Also, a big thank you to Tilly Tennant for writing another fabulous story; My wallet doesn’t thank you, but I do.
I truly needed this book right now to escape from the world for awhile.
I felt that every page of this novel was a delight to read.
The Author did a marvelous job at developing the characters. I couldn’t help becoming attached to each character and feel for their personal struggles. In fact, I may have claimed Alessandro as my new book boyfriend.
As for the setting, I loved that the author used Rome for this book; she did an astounding job at transporting the reader to Rome. I felt like I was living vicariously through Kate.
However, if I had to name one complaint about the book, it is that Kate’s sister, Anna got on my nerves very quickly. I know that she cared for Kate, but her personality drove me mad. I am glad that she isn’t my sibling.
Overall, I loved this book; it picked me up out of my wintertime blues. The characters were fun, and the plot was cute. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a sweet book to enjoy.
I have already pre-ordered my copy.

About the Author:
Tilly Tennant was born in Dorset, the oldest of four children, but now lives in Staffordshire with a family of her own. After years of dismal and disastrous jobs, including paper plate stacking, shop girl, newspaper promotions and waitressing (she never could carry a bowl of soup without spilling a bit), she decided to indulge her passion for the written word by embarking on a degree in English and creative writing, graduating in 2009 with first class honours. She wrote her first novel in 2007 during her first summer break at university and has not stopped writing since. She also works as a freelance fiction editor, and considers herself very lucky that this enables her to read many wonderful books before the rest of the world gets them.
Tilly is represented by the wonderful, gorgeous Peta Nightingale at LAW.
