‘I absolutely LOVED, no make that ADORED reading it… I was hooked… Stayed up reading until the early hours… Made me laugh out loud and I got some strange looks on the bus for it.’ Ginger Book Geek, 5 stars

After losing the love of her life in a tragic accident, thirty-year-old Gina is struggling. Running her little guesthouse in the hills of the Lake District keeps her going, but her heart isn’t in it any more.

When new guest, Fabio Garcia, arrives, Gina feels a spark that reminds her she’s alive. He’s tall, dark but with startling blue eyes, and makes her laugh, for the first time in... forever. Guilt holds her back, but friends, and a glass (or three) of wine, push her into his arms.

It’s nothing serious, which, Gina realises, is exactly what she needs, so when he invites her to his family’s crumbling Italian villa, on the sparkling waters of Lake Como, she says yes.

It’s hard not to fall for the grand, sandstone Villa Lucia, its faded wallpaper, green shutters, and Fabio, serving fresh coffee in bed. But Gina knows where she belongs, and she’s just not ready to explore the hidden depths she discovers in this handsome Italian.

Just when Gina thinks she might change her mind, his sister reveals a secret that sends Gina packing. And it’s a relief. Because she was right not to open her heart to Fabio, to walk away from him, the villa, the moonlit lake... Wasn’t she?

An absolutely page-turning, cry-your-heart-out then laugh-till-you-cry romantic comedy that will stay with you long after you’ve finished. If you like Sophie Kinsella, Carole Matthews and Kristan Higgins, My Very Italian Holiday will have you completely hooked.
