BLOG TOUR: A Sicilian Affair - Susan Lewis

A fresh start where no-one knows her name is exactly what Catie is looking for from her Sicilian escape.

When Catie meets handsome Giancarlo, she has stumbled across a love that could last forever... If only she can admit the truth about her past.

But the scars of betrayal from her broken marriage and fragile family are only part of the story.

Some secrets are too devastating to share...

What did I think?

You're always guaranteed a good read with a Susan Lewis book and The Sicilian Affair is no exception.  I was completely swept away to the picturesque island of Sicily and I really enjoyed my virtual trip.

It's a dual timeline novel as Catie writes about her past in order to come to terms with the tragic events that have happened to her over the years.  Catie had more than her 10 minutes of fame in the past so she escapes to Sicily where nobody knows her.  Catie wasn't looking for love but when she meets the enigmatic Giancarlo the attraction is instant.  Both Giancarlo and Catie have secrets though and sharing them might mean the end of their fledgling relationship.

I really enjoyed the flashbacks to Catie's past and found it incredibly emotional as events unfolded.  It's also lovely to see a burgeoning relationship between two older people who deserve a bit of happiness as life is far too short and you should never stop looking for your other half.

Incredibly atmospheric, heartwarming and emotional, A Sicilian Affair is another fabulous novel from Susan Lewis.  It's the perfect holiday read but remember to pack your tissues.

I received an ARC to read and review for the blog tour and this is my honest and unbiased opinion.
