Book Review: Finding Love In Positano by Lucy Coleman.

 

I couldn't resist this book when I spotted it on Netgalley, because I am missing Italy like mad at the moment!!




The Blurb.



One summer in Italy might just change everything...

Marci James is in love with her job. She's not had a holiday in five years, but now she's escaping to the Italian coast after agreeing to pack up her godfather, Richard's antiques shop.

When Marci arrives it's apparent that the task is far more daunting than she imagined, and it isn't long before Nico, her gorgeous local guide, offers to step up and lend a hand. As the two enjoy the Positano summer, and all that the Italian Riviera has to offer, Marci finally lets herself relax and the sparks between the pair soon begin to fly.

But Richard hasn't just left his possessions behind, he left a secret, one that Marci unwittingly stumbles across it. Will it break her heart after the happiest summer of her entire life?





My Review.




This book definitely had me wishing for Italian evenings and all of the food my Zia makes. Oh how I miss it all so much. I think my favourite scenes were when Marci and Nico sat out on the terrace enjoying the warm evenings with mouth watering food. I would definitely take an espresso or tiramisu under the stars right now, wouldn't you? 

I enjoyed the friendships in this book and how welcoming the Italians were. I know how true that is. It made me think about my trips to Italy as well as when guests came to my Nanna and Grandads house and how the moka pot would immediately be filled and the biscotti would come out of the cupboard. There is just a wonderful feeling of comfort and love when you are around them and I felt that in 'Finding Love in Positano.' 

The business side of things was interesting to me as I don't know much about antiques, but could easily imagine all of the hidden gems Marci uncovered in her godfather's shop. I love the ideas of the stories and history behind items that people have long since left behind. I also liked that Marci worked with her brother and how they had each other's backs. 

If you want to escape to one of the most beautiful places in the world, imagine yourself eating some extremely delicious food and meet some great people who make you feel like family, then pick up 'Finding Love In Positano,' today!

Happy Reading!
Love,
