My turn for the Blog Tour for Darcie Boleyn's new book - Love at the Italian Lake - 5**


On the shores of Lake Garda, a beautiful romance unfolds. But is it only for summer? Don’t miss this gorgeous, heart-warming novel from Darcie Boleyn, bestselling author of 2017 smash-hit Summer at Conwenna Cove.
Sophia Bertoni discovers her boyfriend in bed with another woman, and realizes her life is going nowhere. Leaving her high-pressure job, she travels to Italy to stay with her grandmother while she figures out her next move.
When Sophia – quite literally – bumps into devastatingly handsome Joe Lancaster her plans are turned upside down. As the two realize they’re both spending the summer in the same town, a love affair seems on the cards.
But Sophia and Joe are both burdened by family secrets. Despite their attraction, will the sun set on Sophia and Joe’s romance – or will they find love at the Italian lake?


I was really looking forward to reading Darcie's book - she is one of my favourite authors. And I certainly wasn't disappointed.

I wanted to pack my case and fly to Lake Garda - her descriptions were so vivid and it sounds like an incredibly beautiful place.

The story was lovely - a REAL love story - where the two people fall despite themselves and their pasts. And the tension that arrives when Darcie discovers a family secret is palpable. It means that several people have a lot to deal with, particularly Sophia and her mum.

Absolutely loved it and can't recommend it highly enough! I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
