Prosecco and Promises - by A.L. Michael

Original Cover
My own copy
The blurb:

A feel-good story of self-discovery and love in the face of grief, join Mia in the beautiful Italian island of Ischia. Perfect for fans of Mhairi McFarlane, Lindsey Kelk and Lucy Vine.

Since her mother died when Mia was a child, her dad has been her best friend and her idol. Now, the cancer he survived years before is back, and this time there’s no fighting it. To make matters worse her dad’s last request is for Mia to leave him and visit her mother’s family on the Italian island of Ischia so she doesn’t have to be there at the end.
Arriving at the sun-soaked island, Mia is embraced by the warm, crazy family she doesn’t know. While she waits for the phone to ring with the dreaded news, Mia desperately looks for a connection to the mother she never knew. Stumbling upon an antique shop run by the charming Antonio and his grouchy but handsome grandson Salvatore, she throws herself into helping with the shop restoration. As Mia and Salvatore’s bickering soon turns to chemistry, will she risk having her heart broken when she knows what’s waiting for her at home? 

My Opinion:

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

Mia’s mum died, when she was a child. Her dad has been her idol and best friend ever since. However, the cancer is back and he hasn’t got much time left. It’s his wish for Mia to go to Italy to see her family.

She goes to Ischia for her father, to a family she doesn’t know. And of course there is always the fear of him dying in her head as well.

She finally has the possibility to go back to her routes and discover a part of her mum. She gets to know her family and also the attractive Salvatore. Their chemistry is great and they way their relationship a developed added a lot to to the storyline.

I really liked the plot and the way it flowed. It has a lot of depth and it’s full of emotions. There are sad parts in the story, but also happy moments. A.L. Michael captured them all beautifully.

I absolutely adore the setting of this book and the way the author described it.

Another part I really liked, was the way Mia’s relationship to her step mother changed.
