” I thought the novel was great!”
Five Star Review on Amazon By Andrea O
I thought the novel was great!!! I do not typically read period pieces, but once I started it wasn’t heavy on the war end – story could’ve been set in present day with almost any war if one at all. The imagery portrayed by the author was spot on – the mystery, history, secrets and romances – after the 1st few pages I felt like I was on the vineyard myself ready to work.
While reading I had ALL types of hypothesis on where the story was going, but alas – the author caught me off guard! Huge twists and turns!!! Loved it.
Excited to read more from this author. Ready for “The Italian Rose PART Due (2)!!!!”
