Daniella Tate had been in foster care for most of her life, moving from one family to another until she was sixteen years old and Rosa took her in, really cared for her and loved her. Unfortunately Rosa died but she left money for Daniella to go to Italy and try to find Rosa’s family. Practical Dani has made it into a working holiday, spending time teaching English in Rome before travelling by bus to the Tuscan village of Calanetti. En route she helps American Louisa Harrison who has inherited a Tuscan vineyard but speaks no Italian. They discuss their circumstances and Louisa invites Dani to stay with her – and act as her translator – whilst searching for her foster Mum’s family. Whilst there, Dani gets a job working as Maître d’ in the local restaurant of chef Rafe Manchinin – he’s hot in appearance and temper! Their attraction is mutual but mixing romance between the boss and employee is a recipe for disaster, so they’re both resisting temptation. He’s also been hurt in the past and is determined not to have any long term relationship. Dani’s boyfriend proposed to her as she left for her Italian vacation – she said she’d tell him her answer on her return. Can they continue to resist their attraction or will love find a way to bring them together?

I didn’t realise this is the first in a new series – but I’m glad it is. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it, set in a beautiful part of the world with great characters involved and a developing plot. I really want to know what happens to this couple in the future and to the others involved in this story – especially Louise, Nico Amatucci and Chef Emory! This is a lovely story, a great read and I have no hesitation in highly recommending it to anyone who fancies escaping into the Tuscan countryside for a romantic read.

Thanks to the author, publishers and NetGalley, too, for letting me read an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
