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?
What I Thought:
Oh to be on holiday! While European travel is off the menu for many of us this year, we can all sit back and enjoy an Italian adventure with Secrets on the Italian Island by T. A. Williams, which is published today and is a bargainous £1.99!
A visit to the beautiful island of Elba is anything but a holiday for geologist Anna Porter as she arrives to prospect for rare metals, but could a late-summer romance be on the cards?
This is the third book in T. A. Williams’ Escape to Tuscany series which takes in beautiful locations, vividly described scenery and delicous Italian food and drink that you can practically taste!
I make no secret of being a fan of Trevor’s work, which always has a solid romantic plot, but that is also clearly well-researched and provides heaps of background and history of the setting. This detail adds so much for me and is what keeps me coming back for more.
This book is a winning combination of a likeable main character and a genuine love of the country, which shines through in every chapter and, as ever, it was a pleasure to read.
Secrets on the Italian Island is published by Canelo Escape.
About T. A. Williams:
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.
Please note: I was sent a copy of this book for review. All opinions are, as ever, my own.
