Who can resist the romance of Venice…

When Norah arrives in Venice for a ten-week internship she is surprised to discover that her guide for her work trips around the lagoon is the undeniably gorgeous and kind Gianluca. She can’t help thinking he might be too good to be true, with his endless fascinating local stories, and his infectious laugh.

Norah is still bitter after an accident left her with a serious injury and also meant the end of her long-term relationship. And besides, she’s serious about her career and that means leaving Venice at the end of the summer.

Gianluca has had a summer fling before that led to heartache for him and he won’t do it again. He enjoys the long hours out on the lagoon with Norah, but after a storm strands them on a picture-perfect island for a night, they agree they should just be good friends for the summer.

But life doesn’t always go to plan, and when it’s time for Norah to go, they have to decide whether what they have between them is really just a friendship, and not something more…


I’m embarrassed to say that it’s taken me a while to get round to reading a Leonie Mack book. Not because I didn’t want to, but because, you know…time! But now I have she’s definitely going to be one of my automatic reads. I absolutely loved this book!

Venice is a city I’ve always wanted to visit and now I’ve read this book, I feel like I actually have. Leonie paints such a vivid picture of the city and it plays a key role in this romance. The romance itself is absolutely gorgeous! Tense at times (as a good romance should be) and full of drama, it is everything a heart-warming romance should be. The best ones are always hard one and with the time restriction caused by Norah (the main characters) who is only there for 10 weeks, the tensions are high from the beginning.

This is definitely a must read for anyone who needs transporting to another location, or to escape for a little bit, and where better to escape to than glorious Venice?
