Sophie – She’s a bit of a free spirit, Been living and working in a cafe in Italy

She has to return home because her dad has a heart attack. That could prove a bit difficult as she hasn’t spoken to either of her parents for years.

All three meet at an evening Italian class where Sophie is the teacher, as their lives intertwine it tells of their trials and tribulations in life.


What I Think :

I really enjoyed this book.

A very good beach read, its frothy and funny and a very easy read.

I thought the characters were well-formed and quite believable.

Although I really felt for a couple of the characters, as I’m sure we’ve all been there at some point in our lives.

This is the first of Lucy’s books that I’ve read, But I’m sure it wont be the last.


Thankyou to the Publishers Pan Macmillan and NetGalley for the digital copy to read and review.
