Back Cover Blurb:

Juliet Carlsen is grieving the loss of her mother. Six weeks after the funeral she is about to arrive in a tiny village in northern Italy. The village, Baiardo, is home to an art school where she is to spend a month as a volunteer. Her best friend had convinced her that a change of scene would do her good but, as she nears her destination, she is not so sure: was it really necessary to travel so far out of her comfort zone?

Baiardo turns out to be her haven. The warm welcome and serene beauty work their healing magic. The attentions of a handsome local named Luca don’t hurt either. Then someone from Juliet’s past shows up and turns everything on its head.

My Review:

What a fun & intriguing short story! Gates has created a uniquely memorable tale that gives you a light and fun look at Italy and budding romances. The plot was well developed, creating a complete story with no loose endings. Gates’ narrative and descriptions allowed me to picture it. The characters were real and the type of people that I wanted to get to know. Gates gives enough details to make me feel as if I had met them without overpowering the story with too many details.

This was a sweet tale that can easily be read in a single sitting. It is great if you’re looking for a quick escape from the realities of the everyday.
