Prosecco & Promises- A L Michael

Prosecco and Promises Blog Tour Week 1 (3)

I’m delighted to be part of the blog tour for A L Michael’s latest offering ‘Prosecco & Promises.

Meet Mia: an unforgettable heroine learning the meaning of life and love on a beautiful Italian island. Perfect for fans of Mhairi McFarlane, Lindsey Kelk and Lucy Vine

Mia’s dad has always been her idol. Now, she faces losing him and he is insisting that she leave England to visit her mother’s family on the Italian island of Ischia.

Arriving on the island, Mia is embraced by the warm, crazy relatives she hardly knows. Despite her doubts about the trip, it is in Italy that Mia discovers connections to a part of her life that’s been missing, and during the sun-soaked days and steamy nights Mia falls for handsome local Salvatore. But as the day of her departure draws nearer can she risk having her heart broken twice in one summer?

Review:

This is a deliciously delightful novel. The main character, Mia, has promised to fulfil her father’s dying wish by returning to the beautiful Italian island of Ischia, the place where her Italian mother grew up. Mia’s mother died in a car accident when she was young and when her father discovers that his cancer has returned, he asks her to reconnect with her Italian family.

On arrival in Ischia, Mia finds herself battling with her emotions and surrounded by family members she barely knows; some of whom are desperate to reconnect to her, while her grandmother can barely bring herself to look at her and refuses to speak.

Mia takes off into the hills and there she discovers a place that jolts memories from the past- an old shop selling antiques that she remembers from her childhood. When she steps inside, she encounters Salvatore for the first time.

As the story develops, we learn more about Mia and how her life experiences have moulded her character. She appears moody and aloof, angry and bitter, shaped by the grief of losing those closest to her and yet there is always a hint of a softness within, if only she would allow it to surface.

This is a novel about love, loss, family ties and rediscovering yourself and what you believe in.
