A trail in a car leaving from the channel tunnel and then going all the way across France, Switzerland and finally to Italy seems like a great way to travel.
Having a preplanned journey with the task of sending a postcard from each one sounds like fun and they’re soon off travelling but at first the journey is not an easy one – with two such very different personalities in the car, the ride is bumpy from the ...more

From Italy With Love is your predictable romance story. What does make this one slightly different though is the fabulous descriptions of the surrounding scenery and a wonderful classic car.
I have to say reading of Cam and Laurie as they make their way to Italy really made me wish that I had the time and money to be able to take the same route as they did. The places they go to and the scenery just sounded so idyllic and was definitely very envious.

When I requested this book from Netgalley, I did so because I liked the synopsis and it had been a while since I had read a adult romance. I hadn’t heard of the author before, and I –for some reason– was not expecting great things. I am so happy to be proven wrong!

What a fantastic story. The descriptions of all the places they drove through were so well described that you can imagine actually being there. Loved the way the characters all evolved and the way you thought it was going one way and then turned out completely different. So interesting. Can't wait to read the sequel just in time for New Year.
