Blog Tour – Under the Italian Sun by Sue Moorcroft

The #1 bestseller is back with an uplifting, escapist read that will brighten the gloomiest day!

A warm, sun-baked terrace.

The rustle of verdant green vines.

The sun slowly dipping behind the Umbrian mountains.

And the chink of wine glasses as the first cork of the evening is popped…

Welcome to Italy. A place that holds the answer to Zia-Lucia Costa Chalmers’ many questions. Not least, how she ended up with such a mouthful of a name.

When Zia discovers that her mother wasn’t who she thought she was, she realises the time has come to search out the Italian family she’s never known.

However, as she delves into the secrets of her past, she doesn’t bargain on having to think about her future too. But with local vineyard owner, Piero, living next door, Zia knows she has a serious distraction who may prove difficult to ignore…

This summer, join Zia as she sets out to uncover her past. But can she find the future she’s always dreamed of along the way?

I received a digital ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

If you are a regular visitor to my blog, then you know how highly I regard Sue Moorcroft’s writing.  Under the Italian Sun is another humdinger of a story which had me engrossed from the start.

TV shows, such as Long Lost Family, have taught us that there is a lot of pain associated with tracing missing or unknown relatives, Sue takes us deeper into this world of potential heartache.  Zia is an immediately likable character and I found myself rooting for her.

There is a lot going on in this story, besides Zia’s search for her Italian family.  From the future of a family vineyard to the rules regarding marital secrets, Sue tells this story brilliantly, taking everything in its stride, and despite covering this extended number of situations, the flow is unhindered and there is no feeling of being rushed.

Piero is a worthy holder of the love interest role, and I enjoyed following their gentle flirtations.  Of course, if you are curious to discover if they move beyond flirtation, this book is available from 13th May via all the usual outlets!

I certainly enjoyed the wide array of characters, in this book, but in particular, I loved the immediate connection between Zia and Lucia Costa.  The love from Lucia was a tangible emotion which was evident almost immediately.

I enjoyed my book escape to Italy, it coincided with some rather rainy weather
