Happy Friday. Today is the last day of my old job and Monday I will be starting the new one. I have been calling this My Unemployment Weekend. I really wanted this to be a weekend of doing nothing but reading, but alas, I will be forced to run errands and socialize at least a little bit. Damn!
I finally read Roman Crazy over my vacation this summer and I enjoyed it. It was not as funny as Alice Clayton usually writes but it was very entertaining. Sadly, it looks like it was intended to be a trilogy but there has been no news of any further releases since this one in 2016.
Just leave a comment to be entered.
Giveaway ends Thursday, September 27th. Open to U.S. residents, 18 years and older.
Avery Bardot steps off the plane in Rome, looking for a fresh start. She’s left behind a soon-to-be ex-husband in Boston and plans to spend the summer with her best friend Daisy, licking her wounds—and perhaps a gelato or two. But when her American-expat friend throws her a welcome party on her first night, Avery’s thrown for a loop when she sees a man she never thought she’d see again: Italian architect Marcello Bianchi.
Marcello was the man—the one who got away. And now her past is colliding with her present, a present where she should be mourning the loss of her marriage and—hey, that fettuccine is delicious! And so is Marcello…
Slipping easily into the good life of summertime in Rome, Avery spends her days exploring a city that makes art historians swoon, and her nights swooning over her unexpected what was old is new again romance. It’s heady, it’s fevered, it’s wanton, and it’s crazy. But could this really be her new life? Or is it just a temporary reprieve before returning to the land of twin-set cardigans and crustless sandwiches?
A celebration of great friendship, passionate romance, and wonderful food, Roman Crazy is a lighthearted story of second chances and living life to the fullest.
