It’s no secret that I am a huge fan of Carrie Elks’ writing, so learning that there was a whole new sparkly series on the way, it's safe to say I was beyond excited.
Summers Lease is the first book in the The Shakespeare Sisters series, and the author delivered the all-round enjoyable read that I have come to expect from her writing. ...more
"...your parents have employed me to look after this house, and that’s exactly what I intend to do. So in the morning you need to leave."
Having enjoyed many of Carrie's previous books I'd have happily dived in blind and admittedly I had high hopes. Don't get me wrong ...more
I was given this book in turn for an honest review.
Looking after her Uncle's, friend's, Villa for the summer is an easy task. What could possibly go wrong? Or could everything possibly go, right?
Summer's Lease swelled my heart and filled it full of love. It's a beautiful story that I found unable to put down. From start to finish Carrie Elk's kept me captivated and enthralled in Cesca and Sam's story. Her story felt as real as watching it play out before my very eyes, as if I was liv ...more
I thought Cesca’s character ...more
Summer's Lease is a great summer read which is how I spent my time reading Cesca's story. Relaxing in the sun. I had a good time in Cesca's company and most definitely also in Sam Carlton's. What I really enjoyed about Summer's Lease was the funny and easy bantering between Cesca and Sam. Their first meeting in Italy after six years was terrific. The animosity that continued was equally as funny and when alcohol and flirting entered the equation all bets were off and that's when I reall ...more
Writer Cesca Shakespeare's star is prematurely snuffed out even before the curtain rises for Act I. When the productions leading man goes AWOL, he takes with him any chance of the play she has written being a success. She's never recovered from the disaster that was once her fledgling career in theatre, and has for the last six year worked (and been fired from) a variety of dead end jobs.
When she finds herself at another loose end, her uncle and confident who can no longer bear to ...more
Aquele tipo de comédias românticas, lamechas e cheias de clichês que assistimos no cinema e que eu adoro? É tal e qual este livro.
Adoro cada ingrediente, Cesca uma roteirista falhada de Londres, Sam ...more

Shakespeare Kardeşlerinden biri olan Cesca Shakespeare, çocuk denebilecek yaşta yazdığı oyunla ödül almış, ama başrol oyuncusu daha basın gösteriminde oyunu terk edince oyunu kaldırılmış, yıllardır yazar tıkanıklığı yüzünden bir kelime ...more

Her godfather has the solution though: Looking after an Italian villa for the summer.

With dreams of being a playwright dashed at the outset of her young career, Cesca has limped from one dead-end job to another. When her last disastrous job ends, she turns to her Uncle for advice and before she knows it she’s agr ...more
I really loved this summer romance set mostly in beautiful Italy and also in London and Hollywood. It almost felt like an second chance love story. I mean Cesca and Sam have a history, but it's not quit what I was thinking. Sam has played a huge role in Cesca's life, while he is none the wiser as to how and why this woman can't stand him.
Cesca and Sam started off as adversaries and it was fun watching that slowly change into friendship before becoming something else. It was a slow bui ...more
This isn’t the first book that I read from Carrie Elks but being it the first book in a new series, I was very curious about it. And after reading it I can say that I really liked it and it made me wish that I was going on a holiday to Italy this summer!!
Once upon a time Cesca Shakespeare had big dreams. She dreamed of writing a play that would be loved by everyone and when she was 18 years old she thought that her d ...more

Summer's Lease is no different. I honestly felt so much pity and sorrow for Cesca in the beginning, I wanted her to succeed, to get a happy ever after.
When she goes to Italy, through the descriptions, I felt as if I was there beside her, breathing in the fresh air of Lake Como and soaking in the rays of the sun.
Sam is now a major Hollywood star and Cesca blames him for all her troubles. Her godfather persuades her to go to Italy to help out at a villa there, he fee ...more
The author is one of my few contemporary favourites, and I was not disappointed with this new offering which I highly recommend.
I like how the story developed without it being drawn out unnecessarily, the stubbornness of Cesca, combined with Sam's vulnerability, despite his confidence as a Hollywood actor.
I am a new convert to the delights of Italy and wanted more of it. I ...more

This is a book I was excited to read because it sounded like the perfect easy summer read. Woman with writers block escapes to Lake Como to housesit for a family and ends up trapped in a villa with a man she loathes. Who doesn't love hate to love romance set in Italy with a celebrity romantic lead? Ok, it does sound like a bit if a busy story but it still sounds fun
Fun it was. I enjoyed myself reading. I felt a strong urge to sit in the sun and drink wine and do something spontaneous. I ...more
Ilk kitap Cesca'nın hikayesiydi.
Benim pek bir beklentim yoktu o yüzden sanırım, sevdim. Okurken güzel zaman geçirmenizi sağlayan bir romantik komediydi.Tabi dram kısmı da yok değildi. İki karakterinde yaraları vardı.Özellikle Sam'in.
Kitaba başlarken Sam'e yaptığı şey yüzünden pozitif yaklaşamıyorsunuz ama okudukça gösteri daha başlamadan neden terk ettiğini bir nedene bağlıyorsunuz.Yani illa ki bir ...more
