Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter

“Pasquale’s eyes felt heavy and he thought it might be the most intimate thing possible, to fall asleep next to someone in the afternoon” 

What a delightful respite from the world of deadlines and curmudgeon like workmates. This story is all about missed opportunities and semi-idyllic locales. Throw in a soupcon of Hollywood glamour and you just know this is one you should pack to take on holidays. Or, like me, if you need a break from the perpetual ground hog day of life, this is the perfect remedy.

I really enjoyed the layered story lines that converged in a particularly entertaining fashion. It is romantic, at times sad, at others hopeful. In summary it is definitely worth checking out and did I mention Liz Taylor, Richard Taylor and ITALY!!

5 out of 5 holiday romances can remain with you forever.
