Written by Lucy Coleman
The feel-good read of 2019, perfect for fans of Lucy Diamond and Karen Swan.
Bestselling Brianna Middleton has won the hearts of millions of readers with her sweeping – and steamy – love stories. But the girl behind the typewriter is struggling… Not only does she have writer’s block, but she’s a world-famous romance author with zero romance in her own life.
So the opportunity to spend the summer teaching at a writer’s retreat in an idyllic villa on the shores of Lake Garda – owned by superstar author Arran Jamieson – could this be just the thing to fire up Brie’s writing – and romantic – mojo?
Brie’s sun-drenched Italian summer could be the beginning of this writer’s very own happy-ever-after…
Escape the January blues with this sun-drenched, heart-warming story from the bestselling author of Snowflakes Over Holly Cove.
Superb Story in a Stunning Location!
Oh, I have so enjoyed this book! Lucy Coleman always writes an easy read, and this one is just choc-a-bloc with love.
Brianna Middleton is a best-selling author of romance; unfortunately the love on the pages hasn’t transferred to her own world. Under pressure in her personal life, it has the knock-on effect of giving her writer’s block. As things begin to lighten up a little, her editor offers her the opportunity to spend a month in the Italian lakes, assisting an author of non-fiction with informative courses for writers who want to up their game. And, after all, who wouldn’t want an all expenses paid month in the sun?
Not only is this a fabulous romance, but the details of the writer’s courses are fascinating – not that I’m a writer! Who knew there was so much more to producing a book than just writing it? However, that part of the novel is very much a backdrop to the story itself which is not only well-crafted but draws the reader in from the very beginning. I felt the characters were real, and I was eager to see where the story was going. There’s certainly plenty to keep the reader pressing on, and it’s a very satisfying novel. As for the setting – well, as expected it was stunning and the extra details about Italy really added to the romance. A gorgeous read all round – with a special mention to the stunning cover – and one I’m very happy to recommend.
