Summer on The Italian Lakes – Lucy Coleman

Bestselling Brianna Middleton has won the hearts of millions of readers with her sweeping – and steamy – love stories. But the girl behind the typewriter is struggling… Not only does she have writer’s block, but she’s a world-famous romance author with zero romance in her own life.

So the opportunity to spend the summer teaching at a writer’s retreat in an idyllic villa on the shores of Lake Garda – owned by superstar author Arran Jamieson – could this be just the thing to fire up Brie’s writing – and romantic – mojo?

Brie’s sun-drenched Italian summer could be the beginning of this writer’s very own happy-ever-after…



My review

Do you love the sun? Would you like to know a bit more about how books are ‘born’? Do you like romance? If you tick all these boxes, you will enjoy this story as much as I did.

Being famous opens a lot of doors and social media are a perfect way to talk to people, but those doors are also open to trolls and not so well wishers or people wanting something for themselves by harming someone else.

But when you find that one special person, you can conquer whatever comes to you. Even if people are not supportive, together you are strong and you know that the most important one is having your back. And when others are starting to see what you see, you can relax and focus on your happy ever after.

A lovely and warm story with a bit of Italian history and a look behind the screens of the world of books. 4 stars.

Thank you, Lucy Coleman and Rachels Random Rescources.
