    A perfect Christmas romance story for anyone

    DANTE'S GIFT is probably one of the story that touches your heart in the closest possible way. I started falling in love with this book somewhere along this story, probably when Nico went to Benevento, Italy. The beautiful scene felt like straight out of the movie and I can't help but feel that I'm in a dream. This is a really beautiful story. It gives you warm, fuzzy feeling that makes you believe that love can strive through the hardest time. At first, when I started this book, I feel a tad bit upset that Katie rejected Nico's proposal. I was thinking like why did she do that? But as I gain insight of Katie's childhood I began to understand the way she reacted into some situation. Katie was a kind of woman who have to think through of a situation, but she was a good person. And Dominic was truly perfect for her. I have yet to find a guy like him in the future. He was everything you might want (as a woman). He was understanding and compassionate. His flaw made him even more perfect. They were a perfect blend of each other. And not to mention Dominic's grandmother, Antonio. She was one of the most exceptional character I've ever read. She had her own hardship and her special love story. Her love story was one of the most wholeheart romance that I ever read and it's truly heartwarming. Dante was a collie that was crucial in bringing Antonio and her husband together. I love how Ms. Aubrey put him there. She put a new perspective of wartime. It was not completely darkness. It could be light. I don't like war, but it gave the two hearts a chance to meet each other. There are no words that can accurately describe this book. It is timeless and endless. If you love inspirational romance or any romance book, this is a perfect gift for you. You can give this to your beloved ones and friends. I really recommend this.

    A Wonderful Story

    This is my first read by author Aubrey Wynne but won’t be my last. This was a wonderful story that was well written with a good story line that really kept your interest. The only problem is I need a sequel, I want to know the next chapter in their lives. It’s about a Kathleen James (Katie) who is from a well-to-do family brought up more by servants than her family. She doesn’t know what it’s like to be with a loving family and sharing special family time. She has a great boyfriend, Ken Lawrence, who has been brought up completely different. He was brought up in a very loving family who after losing his parents at a young age was brought up by his grandmother, Nonna. When Ken brings his Nonna back to American, she tells Katie of the love story between her and her husband and their collie Dante. This helps Katie realize what she really wants is life and helps Ken with his own love story. A wonderful story for the upcoming Holiday season.

    squeezes your heart

    This was a lovely story. A young man, Dominic has been planning his proposal down to the minute details for months. When the time comes, he botches the execution, and not in a cute/funny way. He precedes the moment by telling Kate that his great aunt died and he wants his grandmother to move in with him. Kate, instead of taking it in stride, decides that she needs time to figure out if she can deal with his grandmother being in the house, so she puts off answering his proposal. The grandmother comes and shares her story of meeting her true love with the hope to inspire the couple to take that next step. At first, I didn't like Kate. I didn't like her reaction to Dominic's news. If grandma needs help, you help grandma. I thought her self-centered reasons were unwarranted, especially when she had never met the woman. She was basing her feelings on stereotypes and family members from the other side of the family. Dominic was kind in being patient to wait for her answer. While were some good moments between the couple, I would have liked to see more interaction between the two to see why they loved each other. The best part of the story was the WWII romance. It was well woven into the story and had good segues into the storytelling. I felt more connection with Antonia and Ken than I did Dom and Katie. Dante was a cute dog and I loved his reactions to the soldier. Antonia is a darling lady. I'm not much for war stories, but this one really squeezes your heart and will have you tearing up at the special moments. I received an advanced copy from the author for review.

    Wonderful Christmas Story!

    What a wonderful Christmas story! Really, it’s two love stories in one. Just before Dominic proposes to Katie, he tells her that he is inviting his Nonna to live with him. Katie’s not sure how she feels about another woman living with them, and needs time to think. Dominic hopes that meeting Nonna will help alleviate Katie’s worries. It made sense that Katie would have concerns, but her reaction seemed way over the top. Fleeing and completely breaking down when you find out? Really? And so many of the possible problems she listed were based on stereotypes. I did think it was good for her to come to terms with Nonna living there before accepting Dom’s proposal. If she couldn’t, she wasn’t the right girl for Dom! I really admired his love for Nonna. When he heard she would be alone, his decision to invite her into his home was immediate. What a great grandson! I absolutely loved Nonna!! What a sweet love story she and Ken had. Their story was my favorite part of the book! I was given a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

    Clean Romance

    Dante's Gift is my first book by Aubrey Wynne and what a nice surprise. This is a fairly short read, perfect for those with limited time for reading. Dante's Gift is also a clean read that any age group can read, no cussing or explicit sex. Ms Wynne has delivered a contemporary romance and has managed to weave a WWII romance into the story and it works very well. Hats off to Ms Wynne. Katie and Dom's story is a sweet read with a little drama and humor. The characters are totally lovable and my favorite part of the book. I enjoyed reading Dante's Gift and look forward to reading more from Aubrey Wynne in the future. Dante's Gift is book 1 of the Chicago Christmas Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger. I purchased a copy of this book at a book signing.
