You'll fall in love, yourself!
Not only does Elizabeth Adler entice you with the romance of the book, she makes you fall in love with the Amalfi Coast. I could not put it away. I laughed and cried and cheered.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

fine Amalfi tour
In Chicago, though two years have passed since her beloved husband Alex died in a car crash, Lamour Harrington still mourns her loss. Lamour sees the irony that he was the second man in her life to die in a tragic accident as her father Jonathon was killed in a boating incident off Italy¿s Amalfi coast. To survive she buries herself in her work as a landscape architect, but refuses to allow anyone even a dog or cat into her life because loved ones die. Only her childhood friend Jammy Mortimer pushes Lamour to join the living; her spouse Matt coaxes Jammy to tell the total truth to Lamour about Alex. --- Already thinking of returning to the place she was happiest, Amalfi, Jammy¿s revelation is the final impetus to get her to move. Lamour travels to Italy to learn what led to her beloved artistic father's death and to recapture the magical happiness that has left her bereft. The truth may be freeing, but in spite of meeting Lorenzo Pirata and his adult son, Lamour is unsure that she wants to know the secrets of her heart and that of the HOUSE IN AMALFI. --- Whether it is Tuscany, Province or now Amalfi no one serves as a better tour guide of Mediterranean Europe than Elizabeth Adler is. Readers feel they are seeing lush gardens, sharing wine or eating pizza in a remote village cafe as she paints a fabulous landscape. The characters are fully developed with Lamour severing as a terrific focus to the Amalfi tour while the support cast either provides insight into her or into the locale. Once again readers will be transported to another place by the magic of Ms. Adler. --- Harriet KlausnerWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

ELIZABETH ADLER - PURE GENIUS!!
Elizabeth's Adler's House in Amalfi is another of her masterpieces. Her words just flow in such a soothing manner from page to page that I hated coming to the last page. This is truly poetry in the form of a novel!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
