My Summer of Love and Limoncello by Sue Roberts
Today I am pleased to be taking part in the Blog Tour for My Summer of Love and Limoncello by Sue Roberts. Many thanks to Kim from Bookouture and the author for a copy of the book, which I have reviewed honestly.
Three best friends, Italian sunshine and a handsome stranger can fix just about anything… Can’t it?
Maisie Knight had it all. A gorgeous husband. A successful business. A beautiful home. Until one day, after walking into the storeroom of their shop, she loses it all at once – catching her husband cheating on her with the girl from Checkout 3. So when she wins a holiday to Italy, a week under the Tuscan sun couldn’t come sooner.
Treating best friends Cheryl and Emma to a girl’s trip, the terracotta-roofed Villa Marisa on a rustic farm awaits them. The fields of golden sunflowers could be the perfect cure for Maisie’s broken heart – and local farmer, suspiciously perfect Gianni, with his thick black hair and twinkling brown eyes is a welcome distraction from her broken heart.
Mornings waking up to freshly brewed coffee and views of the rolling hills, moped rides with cheeky Italians, and feasts of prosecco and pasta help Maisie forget her troubles. After all her heartache, she’s surprised when she starts opening up to Gianni – she’s even more surprised when the temperature rises and it’s not just the rays of the Italian sunshine…
Maisie could get used to the good life. But just as she’s getting her spark back, disaster strikes. The next thing she knows, her past is catching up with her, reopening old wounds and Maisie has a life-changing decision to make. Should she say ciao to her summer of love and limoncello?
A laugh-out-loud page turner about second chances, finding happiness when you least expect it and the restorative power of Italian food! Fans of Carole Matthews and Sophie Kinsella will be totally hooked by.
My Summer of Love and Limoncello is the story of Maisie Knight who’s life changes dramatically when she finds her husband Harry cheating on her behind a pair of inflatable Santa’s. Soon after the family business collapses and Maisie finds herself living in a one bedroom flat and juggling two jobs.
Maisie wins a trip to Tuscany and gets to take friends Cheryl and Emma along for the ride. I loved the vivid descriptions of the small Italian villages and the mouthwatering pasta dishes (not to mention the hunky men!)
I liked how Sue Roberts demonstrated that depression doesn’t always make you want to hide under the duvet, there are people suffering silently with huge smiles on their faces too.
We get to learn about Italian culture and meet some charming and heartwarming characters and the friendship between the three ladies is very special.
A warm, light-hearted romance to get you in the holiday mood!
