Pink flowers and Kindle

Mary Smith is turning her very ordinary life upside-down! She’s bought herself a one-way ticket to Rome and is ready for a summer she’ll never forget.
Men might be off the cards for waitress Mary, but within hours of arriving at the utterly charming family-run La Dolce Vita pizzeria, she’s already fallen in love with the bustling capital!
Only Dante Rossi, the mysterious (and drop-dead gorgeous) chef seems displeased with her arrival. And in the heat of the kitchen, it doesn’t take long for long-buried secrets to surface and sparks to fly…

Set in the gorgeous Italian city of Rome, right around the corner from the Colosseum, One Summer In Rome is about new beginnings and finding love and friendship.

After high levels of anxiety, Mary leaves a life without her ex in order to find a fresh start. Taking a job in a pizzeria she learns the Italian way of the food business and soon finds herself embroiled in finding ways to keep her new pad in its accustomed status. There's only one issue on Mary's arrival and his name is Dante. Set against the hire of a new English waitress, secrets are soon revealed which indicate why he has nothing but feelings of anguish.

One Summer In Rome is an easy reading story which has a charming notion just under the skin of the main storyline. Although the fact that the Rossini family trust a newcomer to reinvent their business sounds a little farfetched to me, the general story is enlightening and inspiring.

Apart from the character Rossi, who I grew to dislike very quickly, the characters in the plot are true to Italian life and legacy and paint the perfect picture for anyone who hasn't experienced true Italian lifestyle.

Despite my giving of four stars for One Summer In Rome I feel this is the best book by Samantha Tonge that I have read so far.
