Those of you who have been reading my rants know I have taken a break from reading mysteries. A difficult break. I have started several books and set them aside before reaching chapter 2. Thankfully that streak has ended!
Dolci di Love
By Sarah-Kate Lynch
Genre: chick-lit, fiction
Favorite quote: " Their absence had just sapped the pant-peeing happiness right out of her."
I love this book. I stayed up late last night to finish it. This morning I struggled with the rating. It was not a literary masterpiece in the ranks of JRR Tolkien, but it was a wonderful book. One I would gladly run out and buy to read again. (A rarity for me, I am a library girl.) So what is it about?
It is a tale of love, broken hearts, forgiveness, and widows. To make it even better it is set in Tuscany. Lily is married to Daniel. They have a problem that has caused them to grow apart, sort of. Daniel travels to Italy a lot. There he has another family. Lily finds out about it and flies to Tuscany to confront him. Things don't work out as she plans. Telling anymore would just take all the fun out of the book.
