I usually enjoy books by this author, but this one did not do it for me.

Too much drama and I just did not care that much for the characters - never really engaged with them.

And the storyline did not grab me, which made me struggle to finish reading it.

However, I did like the settings.
The blurb for this book did not do it justice. It was so much more.

Salvatore lost his wife and his memory in a car accident leaving him a single parent of a small daughter. His daughter has a hearing impairment that required the need of a speech therapist.

Darcy is the daughter of a famous acting family who has chosen to follow her own path and become a speech therapist. Coming out of a failed marriage to a jerk, and losing her position at a hospital due to budget cuts, she is offered a positio

I liked this book a lot more than the first one of the series (Sergio's story). Salvatore while he was tortured was more likeable over all as a hero than Sergio was in his story.

Darcey Rivers is a speech therapist wanting to a take a break after her clinic is going to be shut down and her contract terminated with the health authority. In walks Salvatore Castellano is desperate to recruit Darcey's expertise in helping his daughter, Rosa, learn to speak after getting cochlear implants. The broodin

"Shaw's characters are brilliant, with a tortured hero, sweetly innocent and precious youngster. Her beautiful, flowing narrative brings the landscapes and people of Sicily - as well as her emotional love story - to life." RT Book Reviews, rated 4 1/2 stars

Not too shabby, this one. I like the ones where the heroine is working and there's some sort of career. I liked that she didn't give up her entire life for the dude. That annoys me. This was pretty good, though.
2.5 stars. Too much melodrama and cliches, but well written and I've enjoyed it.

Good but unfortunately not good enough in my books, although when confession time came around, it was good, hence the three star review.

Love the tortured soul idea of a man portrayed in this story. Really enjoyed this book very much!

The next twin is scarred, not exactly a beast, and doesnt really sell that wallowing in guilt idea, but its an entertaining book, and will pass the time nicely. ...more

I grew up without a TV, let alone DVD’s, computer games etc that my kids spend so much time engrossed in, but I learned to read at an early age and from then on I was always entertained – so much so that my friends used to hide their books when I visited them because all I wanted to do was read!

When I was a teenager I discovered Mills & Boon romances in my local library, and so began a lifelon
