A summer she’ll never forget…
When Olivia Montague’s grandmother passes away, she decides it’s finally time to make some changes in her own life. So she breaks up with her ‘going nowhere’ boyfriend and embarks on a journey to her Nonna’s home in Tuscany.

Until now, Olivia has always believed that she’s incapable of love, after being abandoned by her parents as a baby. But with each day spent at the gorgeous villa nestled in the rolling Italian hills, she feels her heart begin to flutter…

And when handsome antiques dealer Hugh St. James arrives on the scene, she realises things might be about to change forever!

Rightly or wrongly, often the first thing that will attract you to a book is the cover. Now the cover for Under a Tuscan Sky just screams summer at me, and in particular hot sunny days and Italy. And I am delighted to say that the contents inside the cover, carry on that theme and more, providing a sumptuous story of Olivia discovering a lot more about herself than she ever bargained on, and even has two incredibly different gorgeous men after her too. 

Olivia loves making lists, she loves being organised and prepared, so in theory going over to Tuscany to sort out her beloved Nonna's villa should be nice and simple. She already has an estate agent and viewings lined up after all, and shes only heading over to Tuscany to clear the contents of the villa. 

However it soon becomes apparent that not everything goes to plan. On the plane over she meets Alberto a suave Italian man who awakens her hidden inner female! And then the first person to view the house in antiques dealer Hugh. Both become integral to the plot and to what Olivia is doing in Tuscany. 

Between them we discover family secrets which is where the book really kicked up a gear and became very intriguing to read, and we also get a tour of the Italian countryside, and get to take in a lot of places, which is what I love in fiction, being able to travel from my armchair! 

Under A Tuscan Sky is a lovely story and another great book from Karen Aldous. 

Thank you so much to Netgalley and HQ Digital for this copy that I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.

About Karen Aldous

Karen Aldous enjoys village life on the edge of the north-downs in Kent with easy access to the buzz of London. Not only does she love the passive pleasures of reading and writing, she also craves the more active pursuits with her family and friends such as walking, cycling and skiing especially when they involve food and wine!

Karen gets much of her inspiration from her travels and if she had to choose, France, Greece, Switzerland, Italy and the USA would be her favourites. However, wherever she goes, she discovers a new character emerges in 'Karen's World'. She likes to write about strong independent women who can direct their own lives - but struggle to control them! And, of course there's always a gorgeous hunk or two!
