Thanks to the author’s beautiful and detailed descriptions, the reader discovers delicious Italian food and goes on a journey all around Italy, from Rome to Pompeii, and Venice to Florence. I loved the character of Angie who is selfless, genuine, realistic, and very likable and her journey of self-discovery will keep you completely captivated. If you are a fan of Paige Toon, this is a must-read, and if you still haven’t discovered her novels, what are you waiting for? (NP) 9/10
