One Summer in Italy by Sue Moorcroft

"When Sofia Bianchi’s father Aldo dies, it makes her stop and look at things afresh. Having been his carer for so many years, she knows it’s time for her to live her own life – and to fulfil some promises she made to Aldo in his final days.
So there’s nothing for it but to escape to Italy’s Umbrian mountains where, tucked away in a sleepy Italian village, lie plenty of family secrets waiting to be discovered. There, Sofia also finds Amy who is desperately trying to find her way in life after discovering her dad isn’t her biological father.
Sofia sets about helping Amy through this difficult time, but it’s the handsome Levi who proves to be the biggest distraction for Sofia, as her new life starts to take off…"

One Summer in Italy brings together the story of three individuals, Sofia, Amy and Levi.  I easily warmed to all three of them although I found Amy a little annoying, or I suppose "young", at times which I guess is good character writing as she is a teenager!

The romance element of this book is less at the forefront than I remember from Sue's other books and I felt friendship was more of the dominating feature.  However, Levi is a typical Sue Moorcroft hero and this isn't to be ignored! 

I loved the setting in Italy and the hotel that Amy and Sofia work in and found it really easy to visualise.  

 A story of friendship, family, secrets, travelling and, of course, love!  I found it to be an extremely easy read, ideal for a relaxing summer break!  I've never been disappointed by Sue Moorcroft yet...!

One Summer in Italy is out now and can be purchased here on Kindle or in Paperback (prices correct at time of writing):
