This is a really lovely book: Natalie's a most endearing heroine, and although the story strains your credulity a bit - can you imagine meeting someone at a speed dating event who gives you the use of a rent-free flat in Rome? - once she gets to Italy it soars. It's well written, funny (her job as a jumper-outer on Rome ghostwalks is brilliant!) and full of memorable and distinctive characters like the lovely Teresa the food writer, Olivia who runs the tea museum, Claudio the stud estate agent. ...more

I really enjoyed this book. The heroine was human in every way. Weak, strong, funny, sad. And I loved the ending.

In the beginning, this book reminded me a lot of "Eat, Pray, Love"- the ending of a relationship, the fleeing to Rome, the food, new friends, but luckily that's where the similarities ended, because I would have hated to re-read something copied or similar. Sarah Duncan has her own unique style of writing, with her english wit and humour, she makes you enjoy what you're reading. I love books that are set in different surroundings, because they let you travel along with them, as though you're exp ...more
The reason I have given this 2 stars is because I am soon heading to Rome myself, so enjoyed reading about the various landmarks and tourist attractions. It made me more excited to go!
I'd rate this 3 1/2 stars - 4 feels too generous and 3 not enough!

Nice, easy read.

The only reason I chose to read this book is because of my obsession with Italy. However I can actually say I enjoyed the book it actually makes you think of the stupid mistakes we do because we want to be liked by others. Although the story strains your credulity a bit - can you imagine meeting someone at a speed dating event who gives you the use of a rent-free flat in Rome? Still it is written in an excellent way and I really loved the ending!
Very easy to read - the plot isn't exactly a surprise, but I liked the location and the characters. It probably isn't even that realistic but I don't want to start nit picking! I would recommend it to anyone who wants to escape to Rome, and will probably read it again.
Entertaining book finished in two sittings (one late night!), made more enjoyable by following the author's blog and occasionally sitting back and trying to see her tips and techniques put into action.
I had been really excited to read this book, but I wasn't able to get into the book. It just didn't live up to its hype. :(
Loved this book - and it made me REALLY want to visit Rome!
