Blog Tour -Secrets on the Italian Island by T. A. Williams
Her work has got in the way of relationships before – but never like this
Anna’s job as a geologist takes her all over the world, including to the beautiful island of Elba, where she’s sent to look for precious metals. And the island isn’t the only thing that’s gorgeous – she can’t believe her luck when she meets windsurfer Marco and sparks fly.
But Anna must keep her role on Elba a secret to avoid upsetting the locals, which means lying to Marco even as they grow closer. When her old friend Toby visits, Anna suddenly finds herself torn between the attentions of the two men. However, Anna’s not the only one keeping secrets.
Is Marco being entirely honest with her? And why did Toby really come to visit?
In his bio the author says he's a man, and a pretty old one at that. I don't give a fig about his age or his gender, especially when he writes such lovely, descriptive, atmospheric stories. I've read a few of his now, and he simply gets better and better.
In Secrets on the Italian Island I was transported straight into the life and loves of the main character. Her occupation is interesting and unusual, she is sensible and adult, yet has passion and empathy, and I enjoyed reading about her conflict regarding the two men who she's attracted to. The setting is stunning and the writing brings Elba to vivid life. There are also some wonderful twists in this book that I simply didn't see coming, and one part brought tears to my eyes - which demonstrated just how emotive the author's writing is.
Well done on another fantastic book.
About the Author
I’m a man. And a pretty old man as well. I did languages at university a long time ago and then lived and worked in France and Switzerland before going to Italy for seven years as a teacher of English. My Italian wife and I then came back to the UK with our little daughter (now long-since grown up) where I ran a big English language school for many years. We now live in a sleepy little village in Devonshire. I’ve been writing almost all my life but it was only seven years ago that I finally managed to find a publisher who liked my work enough to offer me my first contract.
The fact that I am now writing romantic comedy is something I still find hard to explain. My early books were thrillers and historical novels. Maybe it’s because there are so many horrible things happening in the world today that I feel I need to do my best to provide something to cheer my readers up. My books provide escapism to some gorgeous locations, even if travel to them is currently difficult.
