The Italian Dream

Tamara Kate Jarvis

Sophie gave up a high flying career to find her dream life but has ended up stuck in a dead end job that was only supposed to be temporary. She's also stuck with a nice but boring boyfriend, her parents' constant disappointment, and a life that's going nowhere. When her boss offers her the chance to have that life permanently, she panics and flees to Italy to stay with her friend, Jen, in a village on the outskirts of Florence.

Here in Italy the skies are blue, the sun is shining and Sophie falls in love with a beautiful old Manor house in the village. And what's more, there's a mysterious, handsome man with dark eyes, olive skin and dark blond hair who seems to have taken an instant dislike to her... Why? And will she ever be able to leave all of this behind?
