Really enjoyed this book. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5.
Nice and easy read. One thing I don‘t like is a very predictable story and for the most part this book delivered.
This was a bit of a disappointing read. I had been looking forward to it when it first was released. And then it took me forever to get into a good reading groove. And now I‘m done and it was just alright. I will say that it was a nice switch to read about Italy during the war. I tend to gravitate towards books set in England and France. And the food descriptions 😍 so delish!
Meh. This started out with promise, then by the midpoint it became pretty predictable. The last few chapters were reaching to create a conclusion that in my opinion was trite and reaching. Simplistic writing made it a quick read but parts were ludicrous. About two-thirds of the way through I was ready for it to end. I did not hate this book but parts of it were just too much of a reach. Also, I believe the word “fitted” was misused several times.
This is a beautifully, well written story about an American pilot whose plane crashes in the hills near Tuscany, Italy, during WWII. However, I am pretty burned out on books that revolve around World War II. That‘s certainly not the authors fault but it is why my enjoyment level was only at 3-stars.
Not sure if any of you saw this but some great deals on amazon today 🤓
I loved the intertwined stories of a young woman who hides a wounded WWII soldier in Italy and the grown daughter of the soldier who tries to uncover the mystery of her father's life. I definitely had trouble getting into this at first (the author's British tone lacks feeling sometimes), but overall, I was intrigued with the suspense of the story and was completely satisfied with the ending. #arc ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Well-plotted and thoroughly entertaining. Characters that are well developed, you can imagine really meeting them. The readers are drawn into the era and feel the sacrifices and the hardship the people had to deal with. This novel keeps you deeply involved till the very end.
Nothing has held my attention over the last couple weeks. Let's see how this goes!
Oh I was so disappointed by this! I love Rhys Bowen‘s books, but this one was just too slow and serious for me. I kept waiting for the lightness and fun of her previous books to come through, and it never did. I voluntarily reviewed an eARC copy provided by the publisher via NetGalley.
