Cesca Shakespeare ( what a brilliant name) is one of four sisters. When she finds herself unable
to hold down a job or pay the rent she turns to her godfather Hugh for help. Hoping that a summer caretaking an Italian villa will help her refind her gift as a playwright, he calls in a favour from an old friend.
The descriptions of Italy, not to mention
the food, immediately put the reader into holiday mode. Of course things don't go smoothly for Cesca as before long the son of the owner turns up unexpectedly. When she discovers it is none other than Sam, the leading actor who walked out of her play causing
it to bomb, her first instinct is to flee - except she has nowhere to go.
I enjoyed watching the relationship develop between the two as well as the interaction of the handsome Italian next door neighbour. You'll have to read it to see how the story
Sizzling with summer, I look forward to finding out more about the Shakespeare sisters.
