The Top 10 bestseller - a woman swaps her far-flung travels for her biggest adventure yet: a relationship
Kat has never wanted to live a small, everyday sort of life. She's a food writer who travels the world visiting far-flung places and eating unusual fare. Now she is about to embark on her biggest adventure yet - a relationship. She has fallen in love with an Italian man and is moving to live with him in Venice where she will help him run his small guesthouse, Hotel Gondola. Kat has lined up a book deal and will write about the first year of her new adventure: the food she eats, the recipes she collects, the people she meets, the man she doesn't really know all that well but is going to make a life with...
Still, as Kat ought to know by now, the whole point of adventures is they never go exactly the way you expect them to.
