  • Perfect book for lounging by the pool with

    Kathy Courage has travelled with her long-term boyfriend Neil to Italy for his brother’s wedding. In tow is Neil’s three rude and antisocial teenage children. They arrive a couple of days before the wedding and are due to leave the very next morning as Neil wants to get back home. From the moment the wedding is mentioned Neil has been like a bear with a sore head about it and his children are annoyed that they have to attend. Things don’t get any easier for Kathy from issues on the journey to the hotel, Neil’s constant moaning and needing the air-con on Arctic blast setting, the teenagers wanting everything their way and then, of course, needing new bridesmaid dresses and Kathy’s shoes just happen to go with the new dress leaving her with flip-flops for the big day. If the first two days were bad, the worse was to come when Neil not only proposes at his brother’s wedding. But the next morning there has been a mix-up and Kathy isn’t on the flight home with the family. Neil orders her to stay at the airport and wait for another flight, but when you have been in love with Florence all your life and you are given three days alone, what else would you do then make the most of your time. Three Days in Florence is a fun book featuring an amazing young woman, Kathy Courage – I love her name. Kathy and Neil have been together for a long time but she never expected him to propose, especially when she’d been having doubts about the relationship for a while. I’m not surprised she was having doubts, I’d of kicked him to the kerb a long time ago with his constant me, me, me attitude. He uses Kathy like a doormat and what is with the ‘Chicken Licken’ he calls her when he knows she doesn’t like the name. Grrrr The book takes a while to get to Kathy being alone, but once she has her freedom and time to explore the story comes alive. I’ve never been to Italy, but it sounds so beautiful and there is so much to see, the descriptions were so vivid it often felt like I was were there. There are some lovely people in Florence that show Kathy what true friendship means. This is the perfect book for lounging by the pool with or reading on the beach. Even better if you are holidaying in Florence, what an amazing way to make the book come alive that reading it in the city it is set.

  • Solid read

    I found this to be a really enjoyable, easygoing read with a simple storyline, not much action but very character based. I liked Kathy, the main character, however her long term boyfriend Neil was a whole different matter, he’s not a likeable person and herein lies my biggest issue with this book - why is Kathy still with him? I get that she’s not confident, at the age where she feels she needs to settle but this book is told from her perspective so all the negatives about him come from Kathy so it’s clear she’s very well aware of his faults. Don’t get me wrong, his obsession with mosquitoes reminded me of my own husband and flies however my husband has many positives to balance his faults, I could see no positives about Neil merely tolerance (to a point) and excuses for his behaviour. The frustrating thing is I did actually really enjoy reading this, the other characters are well balanced with some gems thrown in, the descriptions of Florence made me want to go visit it and I enjoyed Kathy’s appreciation of it. I would have appreciated a brief chapter from Melanie, maybe even an epilogue reasoning why a super efficient secretary made that error, was it even an accident? Overall though this is another solid Chrissie Manby read which doesn’t disappoint, 7/10 from me.
