TGIF book friends!
Delighted and charmed to be on the blog tour for this scrumptious debut! Many thanks to Kelly for my invitation and to her sister Lucy Knott for her wonderful words!💕💕
Emotional! Italian! Scrumptious!
This was a fabulous debut! Filled with so much heart, family, and food! I have read quite a few books lately with sisters that have pretty toxic relationships, so it was so refreshing to read a book so full of sisterly love… don’t have a sister myself, but it looks like such a strong and unique bond, when I read books like this I get a little jealous….
The sisters in this book Amanda, Sabrina, and Luisa, are all at somewhat different stages in their lives… they fight, they advise, they hold each other up, they bake! In the beginning of the book the sisters lose their beloved grandfather, and this leads to a trip to Italy…. not only is this a goodbye trip for their grandfather, but also a journey of rejuvenation and re-discovery…. There is also romance in this book, the sisters all have some complications in their love lives…. and the men? Well they were all pretty swoon worthy! I have to admit though, my favorite relationship was Amanda and Dan I love a good friends to lovers love story!
This book was a perfect blend of emotion and hope… with the beautiful backdrop of Italy, that allows you to travel from the comfort of your bed! With amazing recipes and scrumptious food that you could enjoy without the calories! With a powerful message that you can summarize in this quote“the only thing to fear is fear itself!“
A delight of a book with a holiday vibe that you can enjoy any time of the year! Absolutely recommend this little gem!

About the Book
Three sisters. One trip to Italy. The chance to change their lives.
Amanda has always taken the role of big sister seriously. She has her life in order; a fantastic job in a great restaurant, a wonderful house and a best friend who’s a Rockstar. But, Amanda’s beginning to realise that her life is missing one monumental piece…
Sabrina is living the high life in LA. Her Instagram is full of lavish parties, her tweets are brimming with celebrity names, but in reality she’s stuck behind a desk working for a boss who is determined to make her suffer. Is it time for her to stand up and take charge of her life?
Louisa has always been drowned out by her sister’s successes. As the university drop-out she’s always felt third best. But a chance encounter in a little Italian village may be about to change that…
When their beloved grandfather passes away these sisters are forced to take another look at their lives. These three sisters are about to embark on a journey of self-discovery that could just lead them down a road of romance (with a little help from the kitchen)!
Perfect for fans of Jenny Oliver, Carole Mathews and Lucy Diamond.
