Fun book with great descriptions of Tuscany! ( )

Adler writes fun romantic chick-lit. Improbable plots, but who cares. They are great for the beach or vacation anywhere ( )
  BookConcierge | Feb 26, 2016 |
Nice descriptions of the scenery and food in Tuscany and the Amalfi Coast, but otherwise, quite dreadful. ( )
  shearon | Nov 26, 2012 |
Predictable romance story. I did enjoy the Italian scenery and lifestyle descriptions, the author excels in this area. I wanted a mindless read and that is what this book is. ( )

Tuscany...Vineyard-covered hills, silvery olive groves, fields of dazzling sunflowers, old pastel-colored villas and ancient stone villages, cool archways flashed with sunlight, and the village of Bella Piacere on the crest of the hill. Paradise...

She needed a life...

Gemma Jericho is an overworked New York doctor with a handful of a teenaged daughter and a mother who worries that Gemma has no life. So when her mother receives a mysterious letter telling her about an even more mysterious inheritance in Tuscany, Gemma sees her chance: the three of them throw caution and convention to the wind and leave for Italy. Gemma hopes that a change of scenery will bring back the closeness she used to share with her daughter. And perhaps the challenges of living in a foreign country will give her mother something to worry about beyond Gemma's social life.

...And la dolce vita was waiting for her in Italy!

But what they encounter there is far more distracting than Gemma expected: a crumbling old villa and a town divided. Half the residents believe that Ben Raphael, another American, is the rightful inheritor of the villa. As cultures clash, gossip soars, and intrigue unfolds, Gemma is caught up in the most disturbing and delicious trouble she's ever had. Now her summer in Tuscany will change her outlook-and her life-forever.
