A Wedding in Italy (From Italy with Love #2) by Tilly Tennant
Sun, spaghetti and sparkling prosecco. When it comes to looking for love, there’s no place like Rome – but once Kate’s found her man, can she keep him?
Kate is living the dream with her gorgeous boyfriend Alessandro in his native city, but the reality is sometimes a little less romantic than she’d hoped. Every day in her new home is a fight against leaking pipes, her cantankerous landlord and her less-than-perfect grasp of the Italian lingo.
All around her there is talk of weddings, but when a secret from her past is thrust out into the open, Kate must fight to prove to Alessandro’s Mamma – and the rest of his formidable family – that she truly is Italian marriage material.
With the women in Alessandro’s life on a mission to break them apart, the cracks begin to show and Kate starts to question if Alessandro really is the man of her dreams. Can love and the city of romance conquer all, or is that just a fairy-tale?
Let Rome steal your heart this summer in this gorgeously romantic escapist read. Perfect for fans of Jo Thomas and Abby Clements.
My thanks to the Publishers and NetGalley for the opportunity to read this story in exchange for an honest review.
I gave this a 3.5 stars or 7/10. I've not read the first in the series, saying that though, this can be read quite easily as a standalone story.
Kate has fallen for Alessandro in a big way. She's made her mind up that she wants to live in Italy, but she's got such a lot to prove to his family that this isn't just a holiday romance. She's got to find herself a job to help make ends meet. She's found somewhere to live, but it's not ideal as the landlord isn't the easiest person to get on with and the language can be quite a barrier.
This is an ideal summer read, it's a romance with some comedy thrown in for good measure, as Kate does manage to get herself in some situations.
I enjoyed the story and felt that the characters were very well developed. I've never been to Italy, it's somewhere that I hope to visit. Tilly Tennant you brought Italy into my home for a few days while I escaped in your book. Thank you.
