Back of the book :
Lake Como, Italy, New Year’s Eve.
The perfect place to fall in love? Or the perfect place for everything to fall apart . . .
Lucy may have suffered her fair share of bad men, but now she has Pete.
Finally, a man worth sharing her favourite place with, Lake Como.
That’s if she can put mysterious phone calls and glamorous ex-girlfriends out of her mind.
Taggie is rushed off her feet, but distraction is exactly what she needs to forget why she fled England and the
sadness she left behind.
She certainly doesn’t have time for infuriating stranger Marco. A man is the last thing she needs right now.
Lucy and Taggie might not know it, but their lives are about to collide.
The New Year might begin with fireworks – but how will it end?
What I think :
I really loved this book. But then I really loved Isabelle’s other books, so I was really looking forward to this one, and I’ve got to say that it is fabulous, I wasn’t disappointed at all.
I really felt as if i was in Italy on New Year’s Eve, drinking hot wine wrapped up in my big coat, wandering through the Christmas markets looking for that special gift.
I have been having a really bad reading slump lately and have been having a lot of trouble getting into a book. Right from the minute I picked this novel up it had me hooked. I couldn’t put it down until the last page.
I liked both of the girls characters and I thought Marco sounded gorgeous ! Shouldn’t everyone have a Marco in their lives ? (If only to look at !)
What I really liked was the way the all twists, turns and revelations intertwined the two couples.
This book made me reach for the tissue box a couple of times but they were happy tears – mostly. This is a beautiful book with love, loss and betrayal all mixed up into a brilliantly written book.
I give this book a well earned 9/10. (5 stars )
