Rome is Where the Heart Is

Tilly Tennant

Sunshine, crisp white wine, and a sizzling Italian. Nothing could go wrong with some holiday fun… could it?

When thirty-year-old Kate’s childhood sweetheart dumps her without a goodbye, she almost hits rock bottom. But she’s determined to have a fresh start, and goes to Italy’s stunning capital city in search of healing.

Hot sun, fresh coffee and white marble piazzas; here, Kate might be able to put herself back together. But when a glass (or three) more wine than is strictly necessary leads to questioning by a concerned policeman – a tall, Italian policeman, with wavy, black hair and cheekbones to die for – she knows she’s in trouble.

Kate and Alessandro have a spark so big you couldn’t put it out with a fire extinguisher. And he makes her laugh – makes her remember who she is again. But Alessandro has five meddling sisters, a fearsome mama and a very beautiful ex. They’re all certain Kate isn’t the girl for him.

Kate knows it’s just a holiday fling. Besides, there’s too much against them. Hoping for more would just mean getting her heart broken again. Wouldn’t it?

An unputdownable and uplifting escape to the Italian sun that will have you giggling and crossing your fingers for Kate. If you enjoy Debbie Johnson, Carole Matthews or Tracy Brogan, you’ll love this.
