really liked it

The Italian Party is a fun, witty, and entertaining cinematic story that I really enjoyed reading. Jennifer who was reading this one with me pulled me into a coulee with her and I was really glad I decided to join her. What a nice pleasant change of pace this one was. Without her, I would have missed out on such a fun read done on the lighter side with some serious subjects to make this an interesting story.

Christina Lynch does a great job creating interesting characters here with young American newlyweds Scottie and Michael. They arrive in Siena both carrying their own secrets from each other that complicated their relationship. I loved seeing things from Scottie’s innocent way of looking at the world and it was very refreshing. They are well developed and I enjoyed following along with them as they grow and learn more about themselves and each other.

Christina Lynch does a fanatic job adding depth to the story by adding some interesting subplots and interesting Italian characters that felt like I was in a coulee in Italy. I enjoyed this one from start to finish I highly recommend.

Thank you, NetGalley, St Martin’s Press and Christina Lynch for a copy to read and review.

Coulee: a term applied rather loosely to different landforms, all of which refer to a kind of valley.

Sherri Thacker I have this in pile to read after Accidental Heroes. I’m a sucker for Danielle Steel books. Lol


message 4: by C. (new)

C. Oh good, the definition of coulee is at the bottom. A valley, ravine, or crevasse was my guess. It is nice to see a description of a book that induces laughter. I balance happy, with suspenseful and non-fiction reading.

Crumb Great review, Brenda! Do you all read in coulees? Maybe that is a silly question.. I'm just trying to picture what you are referring to.

Thank you, Crumb! No we don't. We just started calling our different options as being in different coulees and it took off from there. I just use references to coulees for the theme I have going on our blog. The pic on the group is a real coulee by Norma's place.
