The glamour of Hollywood. The magic of the Tuscan countryside. One big decision...
Beatrice Kingdom (Bee to her friends) wakes up in hospital in Tuscany. After an accident on a film set leaves her burned and scarred, she feels her whole life has been turned upside down.

Bee is offered the chance of recuperating in a stunning Tuscan villa in the company of a world-famous film star, the irascible Mimi Robertson. Here amid the vines and olive groves, Bee quickly finds there’s more to the place than meets the eye, not least a certain Luca (and Romeo the dog).

As she comes to terms with her injuries and her new life takes shape, Bee will have to travel a road of self-discovery… and make a huge decision.

It is always a pleasure to sit down and be absorbed into a new T. A. Williams book and I'm delighted to say that this was no exception. 

i loved every moment of this well written book, from its amazing descriptions of the Tuscan villa, the surrounding area, Italian food, a gorgeous man, beautiful scenery, to the fledgling friendship between Bree and Mimi. 

Bree is a history specialist, and Mimi is a famous film star, and with the exception of the film they had both just been working on, the only other thing they have in common is that they were both injured in a freak accident on the film set. Which leads to them recuperating together in a remote Tuscan Villa. 

I loved seeing how Bree adapted to life in the countryside, and the scenery on her many walks was really vividly described.  And her regular companion while walking around the huge grounds, is Romeo. 

Romeo is adorable, handsome, loyal, a huge fan of Italian food, and a fabulous companion for Bree, as he knows his way around really well. Of course Luca his owner has all those same qualities too and he and Bree seem to be on the same wave length about most things.  Oh and Romeo is in fact the trademark of a T. A. Williams book, a black Labrador! 

I really enjoyed every moment of this book, and would have loved the story to continue for longer, as i wasn't ready to leave these characters behind. 

Thank you to Netgalley and Canelo for this copy which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
