Product Description

Can a holiday romance ever have a happy ending? Escape with Kate to the sun-drenched city of Rome where a love affair is just about to begin…

When Kate’s husband Matt dumps her on Friday 13th she decides enough is enough – it’s time for her to have some fun and so she hops on a plane to Rome. A week of grappa and gelato in pavement cafes under azure blue skies will be just what the doctor ordered.

What she doesn’t count on is meeting and falling for sexy policeman Alessandro. But the course of true love doesn’t run smoothly – Alessandro has five meddling sisters, a fearsome mama and a beautiful ex Orazia. They’re all certain that Kate is not the girl for him.

Can Kate and Alessandro’s love last the distance? Or will she return home with the one souvenir she doesn’t want – a broken heart …

Fall in love with the colourful cafes and the cobbled piazzas of Rome and follow Kate’s dreams and her heart in this enchanting escapist read. Perfect for fans of Debbie Johnson and Carol Matthews.

I’m so glad I squeezed this book in this week! The last book I read of Tilly’s was Little Acts of Love when I was a newbie book blogger. I gotta say, Tilly has upped her writing game! Seriously. I loved Little Acts but Rome is Where the Heart is totally showed me how good an author can get as they continue writing! Wow!

Kate is such a great character and the opening scene is enough to make anyone want to read through the book quickly hoping that she will end up with a happy ending. I so felt for her, having her childhood sweetheart, and then her long time husband, walk out on her! My heart broke right there in the first chapter. I loved the reaction of her sisters too. They were so sincerely worried about Kate and being you grow apart a tad as an adult even when you’re siblings they had a hard time telling her exactly what they were feeling. Isn’t that just so true to life?

Then there is Rome. Now, I’ve never been to Rome, I’d love too, but I haven’t made it so far. Tilly wrote Rome in such a fabulous way that I felt like I’d been there. I could picture it in detail, the shops, the food, the exploring, such fun! I loved the characters, the travel, the city and just the overall feel of this book. It was fun, funny and I routed for Kate right from the first page.

Nice details were some of the sideline stories that Tilly threw in, such as the dress making, Kate’s sisters, her new gay American BFF Jamie and all the little things that came along with Alessandro. I read this in 1 day because I just couldn’t put it down. That’s how I know a book is fantabulous.

What I Loved?
-That through the entire book I just kept thinking to myself, WOW, Tilly has so improved in her writing, story telling, everything. I love seeing that from authors!
