Verona, Italy. Romeo and Juliet, and a family inn and vineyard.
Verona, Italy. Romeo and Juliet, and a family inn and vineyard. Luscious descriptions of food prep:
"...She chopped fennel and more garlic, glorying in the beauty of the simple ingredients.
As she julienned the remaining carrots for the sheer pleasure of feeling her knife move, she felt an ease
she hadn't enjoyed for months, maybe years. She felt drunk with the joy of creating something..."
High school sweethearts who are coming together again, there's a sweet poignancy to Olivia and Sean's
rekindled romance following her divorce. Olivia as a character starts out skittish (not unusual after a bad
marriage/divorce) and passive, but she finds her backbone in the end.
I'm not sure that Sean, a born White Knight, who is torn between rescuing his little brother and Olivia,
makes as full a journey as Olivia does. Other characters, like Nonna Lucia, Gia, and Big Daddy add
some delightful flavor. Foodies, fans of Italy, and contemporary romance will love this. A great read and a
happy ending. Perfetto.

I love that Olivia was able to get her happy ever after! It was great to follow her story after learning so much about her in Scrumptious. Sean is a hot tamale and a great guy. I love that Amanda Usen brought Olivia's friends back into the story also, from the previous, even if it was for a short time. Definitely a good read and one to have at once you have read Scrumptious!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
