The No. 1 bestselling author makes southern Italy come alive in her most captivating, delicious drama yet
Here is your chance to buy your own home in southern Italy for less than the price of a cup of coffee. The picturesque mountain town of Montenello is selling off some of its historic buildings for just ONE EURO each. To be considered as a future resident of Montenello contact the town's mayor, Salvio Valentini.
Many people read Salvio's advertisement with excitement. Elise is in her twenties and desperate to get on the property ladder. Edward wants to escape a life he finds stifling. Mimi is divorced and starting afresh. And there is one person whose true motivation won't be clear for some time.
These four people all have a dream of Italy. And it's going to change their lives. The passionate and gorgeous new novel by Nicky Pellegrino, the bestselling author of A YEAR AT HOTEL GONDOLA.
