Christmas Secrets at Villa Limoncello
Escape to Villa Limoncello… where dreams come true in the most unexpected ways.
With Christmas around the corner, Izzie Jenkins is ready to kickstart the new ‘Snowflakes and Christmas Cakes’ course at Villa Limoncello with chef and business partner, Luca Castelotti.
However, secrets are stirring with their latest guests and when nasty accidents keep befalling the group it looks like Izzie will have to turn detective once more to protect the Villa’s fledgling reputation.
On top of all this, Izzie’s been offered the job of a lifetime – back home in Cornwall. Will she be coming home for Christmas, or will Tuscany work its magic to keep her at Villa Limoncello with Luca?
What a gloriously interesting festive treat this was. I wasn't expecting to be immersed in the Christmas spirit while in the middle of Tuscany. The references to the traditional Italian was of celebrating the holiday were as interesting as the descriptions of the food were mouthwatering. The setting of the story benefited from a sprinkling of snow and a visit into the mountains, in keeping with the Christmas spirit, and the scenes where the characters had fun with arts and crafts were lovely.
This book, more than the other one I've read, as the title suggests, was based on the keeping and the revealing of secrets, and some of them were quite a surprise. There was also more romance in this book, and plenty of wrapping up of all the loose ends.
A fitting end to the trilogy and a delightful Christmas read.
