Christmas Secrets at Villa Limoncello by Daisy James
Today I am thrilled to be taking part in the blog tour for Christmas Secrets at Villa Limoncello by Daisy James.
Thank you to Rachel’s Random Resources, the publisher and author for a copy of the book, which I have reviewed honestly.
Escape to Villa Limoncello… where dreams come true in the most unexpected ways.
With Christmas around the corner, Izzie Jenkins is ready to kickstart the new ‘Snowflakes and Christmas Cakes’ course at Villa Limoncello with chef and business partner, Luca Castelotti.
However, secrets are stirring with their latest guests and when nasty accidents keep befalling the group it looks like Izzie will have to turn detective once more to protect the Villa’s fledgling reputation. On top of all this, Izzie’s been offered the job of a lifetime – back home in Cornwall. Will she be coming home for Christmas, or will Tuscany work its magic to keep her at Villa Limoncello with Luca?
I have to admit that I’m a newcomer to this series, however that didn’t stop me from really enjoying Christmas Secrets at Villa Limoncello.
This time Izzy returns to Villa Limoncello in Tuscany just before Christmas. She is there to run a cooking and crafting course for a group of choir singers who are rehearsing for their next concert. Izzy is excited to see the gorgeous Luca again and rekindle their romance. However, she finds that he is distant and evading questions, leaving Izzy confused. With a big job offer on the table back in England, what should she do?
The individual characters who attend the courses are intriguing and an element of mystery arises when accidents begin to happen. I loved all the mouthwatering recipes and Christmas crafts and the breathtaking location made me want to hop on the next plane to Tuscany. I really liked Izzy, she was always there with a sympathetic ear when anyone around her needed it and she seemed to be able to sense when someone was hiding pain.
The book is really well-paced, with surprises around every corner and the sparkling romance made this a Christmas read to remember.
Author Bio – Daisy James is a Yorkshire girl transplanted to the north east of England. She loves writing stories with strong heroines and swift-flowing plotlines. When not scribbling away in her peppermint-and-green summerhouse (garden shed), she spends her time sifting flour and sprinkling sugar and edible glitter. She loves gossiping with friends over a glass of something pink and fizzy or indulging in a spot of afternoon tea – china plates and teacups are a must.
