Dreaming of Florence - by T.A. Williams

Original Cover
My own copy

The blurb:

Fresh pasta, red wine, fine art… and love? Find enchantment this year in the magical city of Florence 
When Debbie Waterson’s bicycle crashes into handsome doctor Pierluigi, she wonders if her luck has changed. Determinedly single after ending a long relationship, at last, a man worth bumping into!
Inspired to visit Florence, she soon runs headlong into that old foe: reality. But is Pierluigi the man of her dreams? Then there’s her booze obsessed boss, his forbidding secretary and her noisy inconsiderate neighbours. But could her luck be about to change? Will she find love after all? 

Warm-hearted and unputdownable, Dreaming of Florence is the perfect escape for readers of Holly Martin, Tilly Tennant and Jenny Oliver.

My Opinion:

*Book provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review*

Believe it or not, but this was my first T.A. Williams book. I don’t know why it took me so long to read one of his books, but I’m very happy I did. I love Florence and just really liked the sound of this book.

My favourite part was by far Florence. Williams captured the city atmosphere beautifully and with a lot of detail.

We follow English teacher Debbie Waterson, who dreams of going to Florence. However, she is not sure whether it will live up to her expectations.

She crashes into handsome doctor Pierluigi on her bike and suddenly seems to be interested in men again. It’s partly because of him that she decides to go to Florence and she is not disappointed and decides to stay.

She finds a job and meets a lot of new people. A lot is happening and that makes the storyline very exciting. I have to say that certain things in the storyline didn’t make sense to me, but on the whole it’s a wonderful story.

The authors style is very warm and  charming and I’m definitely planning to read more of his books.
