Summary

Peri Logan’s first client is dead, but not in a morbid way. When her great-grandmother passes, her estate bequeathed Peri a piece of jewelry, a stack of cash, and a note that simply reads “find her”. As a newly licensed private investigator, Peri travels to Italy to find the mysterious woman whose photo was perfectly preserved in the heart-shaped locket. What she doesn’t expect is to be given the runaround from a beautiful stranger who offers to help and does anything but.

Camila Barnes is bored. Nothing exciting ever happens in the small town of Sequina, Italy. When a pushy American shows up demanding to meet the woman in Camila’s artwork, instead of introducing her to her great-grandmother, Camila decides to lead her on a wild goose chase all over town. Nobody messes with her family, especially people who won’t tell her why.

When the truth is finally revealed, Peri and Camilla realize they are a part of something greater than they ever expected. Attraction is fleeting, and true love touches only a few. Do they take the easy road home, or do they fight the odds and give love the chance to last for always?

Meraviliosa!

Yesss, another marvellous story from Kris Bryant. Pulls at all the heart strings. My god the poignant agonizing love story of the great grandmothers nearly broke me. But thank goodness for modern times. It was lovely how the MCs relationship became almost a continuation of the historical romance. Sweet. Oh and I loved the 2 epilogues, how positively luxurious. And now I simply must visit Italy.

I loved it and recommend it!

I do have minor one complaint… the narrator didn’t do a very good job of differentiating the characters. A few times I found myself trying to figure out who was speaking.

The story is so amazing and such a brutal reality of life as recently as 20 years ago. Well done Kris!

Oh and Hooray for epilogues!

A book to relax

Kris Bryant wrote a very sensitive lovely story,with characters both old and young that you can fall in love with. Melissa Sternenberg brought them to life in a very lovely way.

Right in the feels

Hopeful heartbreaking and beautiful were some of the words to describe this book. I 100% enjoyed the both stories although one had me in tears it was so worth the credit. I enjoyed how Hildie's and Isibella's story was told through love letters and Isibella's memories. I also enjoyed how Peri and Carmelia start out at odds but respect each other and live out what their Great Grandmothers should have had.

A beautiful story

This is a beautiful story that weaves in generational romance and love. The author’s description surroundings and time make it easy to visualize the scenes. I teared up in parts and felt the warmth in my heart while reading. Truly enjoyable.

Love enduers always.

An interesting story, sad in parts but of course as a romance it had a happy ending. Sadly the recording of the narration had an irritating hissing throughout. There was even a dog barking partway through.
