Absolutely on my list of places I want to visit, Italy has so much culture it's a magical place to see. The story of Dreaming Of Florence largely focuses on a girl who longs to find a snapshot they saw in real life. On the hunt for the special place, Debbie finds a new life slotting into place before her eyes. Exactly what she needed after him.

So I'm going to get the bug out of my system first .... everything happens far too easily. Finding a job and an apartment can be very hard and super stressful but too many puzzle pieces slot straight into place with minimal effort. This annoyed me because it was more than a tad unrealistic. Maybe some people are just super lucky. 

Overall, the story of Dreaming Of Florence is warm and welcoming with a glorious background and a whole host of unique characters. Even though some bits niggled at me, the book as a whole was an easy read with an intuitive story line. 

Visiting the duomo and various restaurants around the city, there's plenty of Italy to see throughout the story and it could even be handy as a very vague tour guide.

Reading through the chapters, my perception of some characters did change, I won't say who, but some sub plots didn't go the way I initially expected them too. Not necessarily a bad thing. 

Perhaps the only thing I'd add is that I would have liked to have seen more of the area instead of continually going between the same places. Just me being picky but some more highlights of the city would have been fab. 

Another Italian treat you might enjoy is Prosecco & Promises by A L Michael.
