An addictive book that had me stuck to my cozy place to bed to finish it. Reading a book by author Sue Moorcroft after a long time, I was completely immersed in Zia’s life, wanting to know the truth about her family.

Zia captured my interest from the first page when she wanted to travel to Italy to find her family with hardly any clues. Zia was courageous and determined. I loved her friendship with Ursula. They had the perfect bond, garnering my envy.

But later it was Piero who made me swoon. He seemed the man of my dreams. His chemistry with Zia had me longing for my own sparks in life. But he had his own problems, and the author made his life situations quite realistic. Why are the perfect men found in books and not in real life?

The story had everything from new start in life to love to friendship along with mystery. The other characters provided the right support to make this book a page turner. The description of food and wine and locale made me believe I was with Zia soaking up the love and happiness.

There was so much beauty in this book, an oasis to escape into, especially when my side of the globe has been ravaged by the dreadful pandemic. The book gave me hope and a few hours of respite from my ongoing stress.

I was happy that it was not just a routine formula for romance, but the underlying mystery which captured my attention, compelling me to read the book at one go. A vividly descriptive read filled with emotions and love.

I received an ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey down its pages, straight from the heart. STRICTLY HONEST and UNBIASED.

  1. This sounds like a wonderful poolside read. Great review Shalini. I also have not read a Sue Moorcroft book for quite a while and will read this one over the summer. I could use a good swoonworthy romance.

  2. Thanks so much for your fantastic review, Shalini, and for participating in the blog tour. I so appreciate it! And I’m very glad you enjoyed Under the Italian Sun.
