Thank you to Jackie Townsend and Ripetta Press. I couldn’t resist a trip to Italy. This the first of a two day trip to visit Italy.
Jamie met Jack through her work. Jamie works at a firm that buys and sells companies. She is quite good at it. Things seem to be progressing with Jack and then he asks her to go to Italy for a wedding. Jack is from Italy and in the US on a working visa. Jamie gets to meet his Mom and the rest of the family. Will she take these family relationships serious? Then she offers to marry him for a green card. What will Jack decide? How will this relationship change Jamie? Jack decides to go into business with his family which leads to further complications.
This novel made me crave an authentic Italian meal. I devoured the most of the chapters of this novel. The plot seems to fade and go slower towards the end. The only other was a question I asked who narrated this story?
I loved the setting of Italy! The story was also set in the United States partially too. Italy is a country I have always wanted to visit. The author did a wonderful job bringing to life the country and its people.
The growth of the characters in this novel is great. Jamie isn’t a character I initially would have connected with, but she grew on me as the novel progressed. I sometimes as reader struggle watching characters making certain choices that I as a reader would not agree with. I have learned to appreciate the depth of conflict and what it brings to a story.
