Review


I love a typical beach read, with love romance & delicious sounding food. When the chance to join the blog tour for this came up, I knew I would enjoy it.

When Sophia comes home from work one day and discovers her boyfriend in bed with another women - it could trigger all her teenage issues and bring them back to the surface, instead though - she realises the life she has isn't what she wanted - and it's going nowhere. A major case of all work & no play.

Sophia decides to leave her job & spend the summer in Italy with her grandmother whilst she plans her next move, a break for a while so when she literally bumps into Joe at the airport - her summer plans change drastically.

Both holding family secrets and an agreement for just a summer fling will this end in heartache?
Love at the Italian Lake is a sumptuous read, it's full of all the good things in life. It had me craving coffee & pastries as I watched the sun rise, or a lot of pasta washed down with a large glass of red. These things make a book for me. If it leaves me wanting to experience what is going on in the pages then its worked its wonders.

Sophia comes from a warm loving Italian family, and I am so glad she took the time to visit her grandmother and be true to her roots and embrace her self. Self-love and all that.  From the minute we meet Joe he made me laugh, there is a vibe to him that is just lovely.

In short, Love At The Italian Lake is a wonderful read that had me planning my trip to Italy to experience all these things. The characters were warm and loving with a true sense of family values. There was enough drama to move the narrative along without being too heavy. All in all - A fantastic summer read.

4/5
