A Hilltop in Tuscanyby Stephanie Grace Whitson
Liz Davis's carefully constructed world-and her engagement to Jeffrey
Mary Davis, Liz's widowed mother has returned to Paris and made peace with the past, but now she struggles with conflicted feelings about the two men in her life-Parisian Jean-Marc, the first love who's never forgotten her and Luca Santo, the Italian who's introduced Mary to new adventures.
Liz Davis's carefully constructed world-and her engagement to Jeffrey Scott-have already begun to crumble when an unexpected phone call summons Liz to her mother's side in Florence, Italy.
Together again, Mary and Liz strive to resolve the turmoil between them and the men they love.
Does the very thing their hearts long for most await them in the fabled hills of Tuscany?
Overall, this book, as with the first in the series, is quite entertaining. It should be pleasing to those with a penchant for light romance, human drama, and international travel."

I thought this sequel was pretty good. It wasn't as good as A Garden in Paris, mostly beacause you're stuck in omaha most of the time. I really felt like I was responding to the characters, in a way that the author wanted me too. It was a little more preachy than the first one, but not even close to annoying (like Karen Kingsbury). I wanted to slap Liz, I though Jeff and his fgamily was pretty cool, and I love Mary. She is so sweet and I love how the author wrote in her torn feelings about two male characters. There wasn't as much of Tuscany as I expected and hoped for, it's mostly towards the end. and the end is what shook me the hardest. What Liz put Jeff through with her pregnancy just was so hard. I like Mary's choice two, and who she ends up marrying. Overall, I really enjoyed this book. The authors writing style seems so effortless and smooth, it isn't choppy or wordy, but it flows and absorbs you into a book. Thats the kind of writing I haven't read since The Thirteenth Tale. Anyway, read this. I think anyone will love it.
This sequel is a real dissapointment. Whitson spends 50% of the story thumping you on the head with the bible.
