    My very italian holiday

    It was so chidishly written, I couldn,t finish it. If I wanted cookery lessons I,d buy a cookery book. This was the part I finally gave up on it.

    Not my favourite book, but it wasn't awful

    Having read Sue’s debut novel, My Big Greek Summer, I thought that I could only follow up by taking part in the blog tour for My Very Italian Holiday. Now that I've read the book, I have to say that I have mixed feelings. For the most part, I truly enjoyed My Very Italian Holiday; completing the book in one day. I found that the overall plot and theme of the book was quite sweet; focusing on moving on and taking second chances. However, with that in mind, there were a few aspects that, as a reader, I didn't enjoy. The first one was that the instant love between Gina and Fabio didn't seem realistic; especially considering her status as a widow - it just wouldn't happen like that in real life. The second aspect of the novel that put me off was that it took exactly 50% of the story to get to Italy; seeing as the title is My Very ITALIAN Holiday, I assumed that the main narrative would've been introduced much earlier in the book. As a result, I felt that the second part of the plot was a tad rushed. Nevertheless, despite these downfalls, I found myself rooting for Gina and wanting her to be happy in life. Overall, while I wouldn't mark My Very Italian Holiday as my favourite novel, I did enjoy it as a Summer read. I would probably recommend this book to my fellow chick-lit lovers who are looking for something light and gentle to settle in with.

    Enjoyed a lot

    Very enjoyable book. My only criticism is that Bellagio is not an island. I have been there.

    A very engaging read; finished in one sitting.

    Gina has been widowed for two years now and is running a successful B&B in the Lake District. She is running her small hotel with her sister Hannah, although that was not her original plan, which was a dream she shared with her husband. She enjoys a variety of pleasant guests, but one guest, in just one short week, has truly touched her heart. Fabio stays at the guesthouse while visiting his uncle. She is surprised to hear that he himself has inherited a B&B of his own at his home in Italy. They communicate from time-to-time upon Fabio's return home, and eventually Gina decides to visit him. I was quite touched by Gina's memories of her husband Adam, while allowing her heart to make room for Fabio. Her marriage was too short, but she has so much more life to live. She is rather surprised by her attraction to Fabio, well, except for the fact that he is drop-dead gorgeous. Fabio may be a bit of a flirt, but he knows what he wants, and that is Gina. Aside from the feelings the two are developing for one another, the fact they both own B&B's gives them a firmer foundation. From the Lake District in England to Lake Como in Italy, both locales provide beautiful pictures. My Very Italian Holiday was a very engaging read, one that I devoured in just one sitting, as I truly enjoyed watching Gina and Fabio's relationship blossom. This delightful story had me laughing at times and also experiencing moments of sadness There was a wonderful sense of coming home in this story, for more than just Gina and Fabio, giving a sense of rightness to this sweet romance. I so love happy endings and was certainly not disappointed. For a quick, summer read, definitely pick this one up! I definitely look forward to reading much more from Sue Roberts. Many thanks to Bookoture and to NetGalley for this ARC to review in exchange for my honest opinion.
