I was so not recommend at all....was so looking forwa d to a wonderful novel set in sad
i have not read a book of this genre for went smoothly,but as usual the female was a simperin idiot.
Nonetheless it was amusing.
I found this book to be a good read. From the first I knew the author was alluding to a darker side. I found myself angered about the blind trust that Carrie had in Leo. I had to remind myself of the setting and time period and circumstances of her marriage which played a part in her feelings and actions. I actually like the ending and felt it redeemed the story and character of Carrie.
Quick and easy summer read. The main characters were not very likable. One dim-witted and the other devious. The best thing was the descriptions of Tuscany.
The writing is excellent. The main characters are very well flushed out. The story pretty much id confined to the British expat comm?unity in the area around Lucca Italy. I would have liked to have learned more about the Italian community I assume that was not possible because none of the Brits spoke Italian. Did Leo really love Carrie? Each teader will have to decide that for him/her self. I definitely recommend the book to others.
This is a well written story for which readers will anticipate the ending. Not very fast paced in the beginning but with a plethora of twists and turns that keeps readers glued in anticipation and takes them down a twisted road to a surprise ending. I usually can figure out a plot about halfway through a book. Not so with this one. I plan to read more by this author.
Have you ever read a book where you just want to slap the unsuspecting heroine. She's just so blind! Yet you can't stop reading, so caught up in the drama you stay up way too late hoping the silly woman will wake up and see what's coming? That's how this book affected me! Been thinking of the characters even after the book is finished, as if the characters were real live people. That's how this book is for me. I hope you'll like it too.
Family can be both loving and destuctive. I must admit the book kept me intrequed, I thought I had it figuried out and and understood a new turn would keep me more and more wanting to find the next little bit of information and I thank you for this wonderfull read, I really can not say when was the last time I enjoyed a wonderfull time reading. Thank You!!! An awsome dawson rating of 10 stars
