I am delighted to share my review today for Under the Italian Sun by Sue Moorcroft. I do love tis authors books even though I have not read all of them. When I received an email from Avon inviting me to request her latest book via NetGalley it was an easy decision.
This book is due for publication in a few days time (13th May 2021)
The #1 bestseller is back with an uplifting, escapist read that will brighten the gloomiest day!
A sun-baked terrace. The rustle of vines. And the clink of wine glasses as the first cork of the evening is popped…

I adore this author and her ability to completely hook me in her novels.
Zia is looking for answers about who she is. She has never met her father and it is only through some old letters that she begins to piece together the puzzle of her past. This leads Zia from Brighton to Italy, the Umbria region of mountains and wine. Zia and her friend Ursula make the journey and discover a lot more about Zia’s past. Deciding that she wants to lengthen her holiday, Ursula heads back to the UK again.
The author has done such a wonderful job once again with her breathtaking descriptions and also for the other details involved in winemaking and property. A story about families that not only spans generations but has the potential to cause hurt. Secrets are part of families, but wanting to know the truth can be a good or a bad thing.
Weaving family, secrets, wine and property deals into a story with a stunning backdrop and then including so many other things in this story is just amazing. It makes for an exciting reading especially when an ex-boyfriend is thrown into the mixing pot and then the potential new boyfriend. This is a book that seems to have everything and quite a few other things as well.
This is a mix of contemporary fiction and romance, and the author really does know how to write romance scenes. Whether it is a flirtatious glance or something a little more raunchy she gets the balance right without being over the top with descriptions. You will know what I mean when you come across Piero!
If you are a fan of modern romance novels then this author is surely already on your radar and you have probably read several of her books already. One I happily read over the course of an afternoon and evening and would definitely recommend.
Many thanks for reading my post, a like or share would be amazing 🙂 xx
