Type: Book
Publisher: Orion

Note: In the drowsy heat of an Italian summer, four strangers arrive in a beautiful town nestled in the mountains of Basilicata, dreaming of a new adventure. An innovative scheme by the town's Mayor has given them the chance to buy a crumbling historic building for a single Euro - on the condition that they renovate their home within three years, and help to bring new life to the close-knit local community. Elise is desperate to get on the property ladder. Edward wants to escape a life he feels suffocated by. Mimi is determined to start afresh after her divorce. And there's one new arrival whose true motives are yet to be revealed. For each of them, Montenello offers a different promise of happiness. But can they turn their dream of Italy into reality?

Publisher: Aurora Large Print

Note: Kat Black has never lived a quiet life. She's an adventurer: a food writer travelling the world visiting far-flung places and eating unusual things. Now she's about to embark on her biggest adventure yet - a relationship. She has fallen in love with an Italian man and is moving to Venice for a year to help him run his guesthouse, Hotel Gondola, where she hopes to put down some roots for the first time in years. Kat will write all about her adventure: the food she eats, the recipes she collects, the people she meets, and the man she doesn't know all that well but is going to make a life with. But as Kat ought to know by now, the thing about adventures is that they never go the way you expect them to.
