  • Terrifically Enjoyable!

    A magnificent beginning to a delightful new series - I do so enjoy Trevor Williams' novels! Lucy Young is not only a doctor, she is a surgeon and four the last four years she has been using her skill working for Doctors Without Borders. After a very close call in Africa, she needs to work elsewhere for a while - for the sake of her own physical and mental well-being. Her next position is working in a private clinic in the sun drenched region of Tuscany, Italy; a post she's not really comfortable in, preferring to put her talents to use helping the underprivileged, not the rich and famous. One of the first patients she meets is tennis player David, former superstar whose injury has ended his career. Lucy finds herself very attracted to him, but with millions in the bank and rich lifestyle, can she ever feel comfortable with him? Having been an avid reader of this author's previous series, I was really looking forward to reaching this one on my list - and I was not disappointed. With a wonderful storyline which successfully encompasses both the richest and poorest of this planet, there is much to be learned. For me, part of the fun of Trevor's books is that he always includes a labrador somewhere in the story; this time round it was a veritable feast of adorable pooches with several dogs and puppies too! They are always a part of each story and I look forward to discovering their names and personalities every time. Also included is a bit of historical information on the area where the story is set, and this novel is bursting with little gems which any would-be traveller can look out for. Add in that I could almost imagine the Italian sun warming my bones (always welcome in Scotland, believe me) and I have had a super time reading this. Collectively, along with excellent writing it all adds up to a very readable and terrifically enjoyable, smooth-flowing book which I'm very happy to give both the highest recommendation and five sparkling stars!

  • Under a Siena Sun

    Being stuck at home during a pandemic, Under A Siena Sun is the perfect summer read to give you that much needed break from life right now. Lucy Young has been in war torn Africa working for Doctors Without Borders/medicine sans frontier for a few years and after being rescued from a conflict zone she decides to hang up her MSF hat and take a job in the beautiful Siena. Italy has long me on my bucket list, and TA Williams did a wonderful job of not only bringing the characters to life but the amazing Italian culture and scenery. The beginning of the book was quite intense so you can see why Lucy would find the peaceful idyllic life of Siena a welcome break, she takes a job at a prestigious clinic that is a stark contrast to what she worked in in Africa which leaves her feeling a little conflicted, it does make you think how money and privilege brings you better healthcare. The story moves at a leisurely pace building the characters and the relationships between them. This was a feel good clean romance, with great characters and an amazing setting I really enjoyed this story and I can't wait to delve into TA Williams other books! 4 stars

  • A sweet read

    A feel good romance under the bright skies of Siena and the warmth of its people. This was my first book by author T. A. Williams, and I have to say with a delightful sigh that the prose was mesmerizing. The landscapes and food described came alive with the strength of his words. The characters were plenty, they were warm and kind-hearted. The dogs in the book were the best, unique in their ways and so loving. The story was prose perfect, but it missed the emotions, the angst and feelings that love brings. A woman's heart is everything and more. It feels things minutely especially when in love. I liked everyone on the book but could connect to none. Overall this was a sweet, quick read for me.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • 👩‍⚕MD finds her perfect paradise

    🌄Great vacation read with idyllic Italian summer living🍷 and romance💕 4.5🌟stars This was a low-key, minimum drama (after the exciting opening chapter), easy read for me, just the type of story to enjoyably occupy a lazy afternoon. It was my first time reading one of the author's works and I could see quite plainly that Williams loves the Italian food, landscape, cultural and way of living. Heroine Lucy begins the story stressed out of her mind and her choice to go to Italy to rest and recuperate turns out to be a spectacular decision. Lucy is a character who is so generous and caring she seems to attract good things and people to her. At times, like in her quandary late in the book, she almost seems too good, but, despite her frustration at living in a have versus have not world she never gets preachy; I liked that about her. I loved the troop of secondary characters (including the ubiquitous Black Lab contingent) and the inclusion of atmospheric descriptions of some of Tuscany's most iconic landmarks and panoramas. Williams did a great job creating a backdrop that was a veritable feast for the senses and I find it hard to believe anyone who enjoys this book does not long to hightail it to Italy to experience the sights, tastes and sounds for themselves. Thanks to publishers Canelo and NetGalley for providing an advance copy of the book; this is my voluntary and honest review.

  • An enjoyable and enchanting romantic getaway

    Mentally and physically exhausted from her stint in Africa as a doctor for Medecins Sans Frontieres, Lucy escapes to Tuscany for a well-deserved holiday. It sure beats dodging bullets. But when she is made an offer she can’t refuse, she settles in Siena working for a private hospital and buying a lovely cottage with spectacular views of the Tuscany countryside. In the meantime, she meets the attractive former tennis star up the lane and grows to like this troubled man. But falling for him is not sitting well with her. His wealth and artificial world and her principles of caring for the underprivileged are in conflict. The problem isn’t him, it’s everything he stands for. Will she choose him or her conscience? I admire Lucy’s drive and courage to stand up for what’s right. She is a kind and caring person who is dedicated to helping others who cannot help themselves so it is understandable she has doubts about being with David and his large villa and bright red Ferrari. However, David is trying to be a better person and his grand gesture is remarkable and proof of his love for her. Their love of medieval history and the hunt to uncover information about the mysterious Englishman’s Castle gives an extra touch to the story. And in true T.A. Williams fashion, he includes colorful supporting characters, adorable dogs, beautiful settings, and delicious cuisine that gives the reader a relaxing escape to better times. Overall, this is an enjoyable and enchanting romantic getaway filled with history, wine, and charm. Recommend highly! Thank you to Mr. Williams for giving me the opportunity to read this book with no expectation of a positive review.
