Summary

A story about love, family secrets and a little piece of heaven....

In the beautiful village of Vernazza, the Mazzone family have transformed an old convent overlooking the glamorous Italian Riviera into the elegant Lemon Tree Hotel. For Chiara, her daughter, Elene, and her granddaughter, Isabella, the running of their hotel is the driving force in their lives.   

One day, two unexpected guests check in. The first, Dante, is a face from Chiara's past, but what exactly happened between them all those years ago, Elene wonders. Meanwhile, Isabella is preoccupied with the second guest, a mysterious young man who seems to know a lot about the history of the old convent and the people who live there. Isabella is determined to find out his true intentions and discover the secret past of the Lemon Tree Hotel.

Wonderful story! Loved every minute!

I imagined that I was there in beautiful Italy! Wonderfully detailed descriptions of the scenery- it made a dull day in Devon turn into a warm & balmy one in sunny Italy! The characters were well written & believable. Loved how the characters lives were linked & developed. A beautiful story that makes you laugh, dream, reminisce & cry. Feel bereft now it’s finished!! Just downloaded another of Rosanna’s books. Narrator was absolutely brilliant!

A winner

Loved the story and the narration was excellent. Descriptions of the locality made you feel you were part of the scenery. Plus the recipes being prepared were mouthwatering. Little more to say!

Not this time

I’ve listened to Rosanna Ley’s other books and have enjoyed them all, but this one failed to capture my interest. Even the beautiful setting didn’t help. I persevered for several hours hoping to get into the story as I was interested in hearing what, in particular Giovanna’s story might be but not enough to plough on any further, I’m sorry to say.

So I’ve given up and returned this one.
