Welcome to my stop on the An American Girl in Italy blog tour! This was such a cute and fun read, I hope everyone will take the time to check it out and enter the fun giveaway as well. :)
An Italian paradise is the last thing she wants… but the one thing she needs!
Surely any girl would kill for the chance to tour Italy’s most famous cities for the summer? To experience the warmth of the Tuscan sun, the culinary delights of the pizzerias and caffés and to stroll along the cobbled streets of the City of Love itself… Any girl apart from ambitious oboist Carly Davis that is! For her, the Easthampton Civic Symphony’s latest European tour is one massive inconvenience. She can’t even put her smartphone down long enough to snap a picture of the Coliseum. Only, there’s one Italian attraction that Carly hadn’t quite expected to be a part of the tourist route…
Tour guide Michelangelo is as dark and delicious as Carly’s morning espresso. And when she needs a few lessons in the language of love to land her an important gig, he’s a more than capable tutor.
But with her promising career back in Boston, can Carly really afford to lose her heart in Italy?

These types of reads are always so much fun and so perfect for this time of year.
Short, adorable reads that you can easily consume in one single setting that will leave a smile on your face and those warm fuzzy feelings in your heart.
Carly was a fun character and I loved how focused and serious she could be and then how reckless and flirty she could be whenever Michelangelo was around and threw her off her game.
Their romance was a sweet one filled with fun interactions and smile inducing banter. It was hard not to like them and be rooting for them to figure it all out and end up together.
Overall this was the perfect summer read and I look forward to seeing what else this author comes out with in the future.
