Many thanks to Rachel and Rachel’s Random Resources for my spot on this Blog Tour.
A feel good romance under the bright skies of Siena and the warmth of its people. This was my first book by author T. A. Williams, and I have to say with a delightful sigh that the prose was mesmerizing. The landscapes and food described came alive with the strength of his words. I was in awe.
Having worked with Doctors Without Borders and escaping a dire situation in Africa, Lucy needed a break from work and a vacation to relax her body and mind. And what better place than Siena where her best friend lived.
The book was all about food and wine, sunshine and friendship. There was a sparkle in it that made me smile, especially when love interest David entered the story as a grumpy, rich patient.
Lucy as a character had a great set of values. She was committed to her work and everything that she beloved in. The characters were plenty, they were warm and kind-hearted. The author did place some reckless-with-love men to bring about the contrast.
The dogs in the book were the best, unique in their ways and so loving. The story was prose perfect, but it missed the emotions, the angst and feelings that love brings. A woman’s heart is everything and more. It feels things minutely especially when in love. I liked everyone on the book but could connect to none.
Overall this was a sweet, quick read for me. Siena is now another place in my wishlist.
I received a ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

Lucy needed a change of scene. She didn’t expect the change of a lifetime.
Doctors Without Borders has been Lucy Young’s life for the past four years. After being rescued from a conflict zone, she’s making a change from saving lives under gunfire to practising medicine in safe, serene Siena.
Now treating wealthy patients at a private clinic, she’s never felt less comfortable. She’s used to helping those in dire need – not those in need of a nip and tuck. Her turmoil grows when she encounters injured tennis star David Lorenzo, whose smiles make Lucy forget her aversion to the rich.
She’s soon falling for the sportsman but is she losing herself in this world of excess? All she’s ever wanted was to help the underprivileged, so can her future lie in Siena at the clinic – with David?
