Summer on the Italian Lakes

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…

Escape the January blues with this sun-drenched, heart-warming story from the bestselling author of Snowflakes Over Holly Cove.

My Review

Summer on the Italian Lakes is the captivating story of Brie, a successful novelist who embarks on a summer of teaching in the idyllic location of Lake Garda.

It was fascinating to read about the highs and lows of a novelist, both from a personal and professional perspective. I really felt for Brie, trying to produce another bestselling romance, when her heart was broken. I found it a really interesting insight into the life of an author.

The story comes alive when Brie travels to Italy and meets up with fellow author Arran. With a beautiful sunny climate, like-minded company and romantic location, will fiction finally become reality?

This is the second novel I have read and reviewed by Lucy Coleman and I adored both equally. A highly recommended read.
