Another memoir of time spent in France; I really need to go there! I liked the layout of mostly small vignettes, many amusing. A book to enjoy nibbling on.

An interesting start to the Wilde series. The story of love at first sight was cute, there was a meet cute, lots of kids & meddling relatives. They say the third time's the charm & for the Duke of Lindow it's his last Duchess.

I knew this book was going to be sad and I'd be sobbing at the epilogue so I knew what to expect.

A wonderful love story set on the island of Elba. Three friends, Rohan, Grey and Lizzie go there to get inspiration for Ronan's writing of an interpretation of Romeo and Juliet (he's an actor); Lizzie who's 32 and a Shakespearan professor and Grey, her best friend from foster home years ago. She meets Dante (hence part of the title obviously) who's a chef and his 12 year old daughter Etta who's wise beyond her years. Love happens but Lizzie is of course scared of falling in love because of her cancer diagnosis.

A great read overall despite the sadness but it didn't hamper the happy times. I fell in love with all the characters and I wanted to be their friend.
