ABOUT THIS BOOK
Three women. One summer reunion. Secrets will be revealed…
Villa Dolce Vita, a rambling stone house on the Amalfi Coast, sits high above the Gulf of Naples amidst dappled lemon groves and the fragrant, tumbling bougainvillea. Kim, Colette and Annie all came to the villa in need of escape and in the process forged an unlikely friendship.
Now, years later, Kim has transformed the crumbling house into a luxury retreat and has invited her friends back for the summer to celebrate.
But as friendships are rekindled under the Italian sun, secrets buried in the past will come to light, and not everyone is happy that the three friends are reuniting… Each woman will have things to face up to if they are all to find true happiness and fully embrace the sweet life.
If ever there was a time to be transported to a beautiful place for a story brimming with heart and friendship, then this is it and THE SUMMER VILLA by Melissa Hill is the perfect book to read.
Years ago, three young women, Kim, Colette, and Annie, found themselves and each other in a run-down stone house on the stunning Amalfi Coast on a trip that would change all of them forever. Now one of those women, Kim, has built up a successful company and has renovated the old house in Italy that meant so much to them all, and is ready to open it up for business and to her old friends from the past. Even though they do not keep in touch as much as they should, this will be a time for them all to come together and catch up with each other's lives and reconnect. But no matter how far you push it down, problems always seem to have a way of crashing to the surface at the worst possible time, and as they each try to deal with their issues, both past and present, will they discover that the truth can set you free?
As always with Melissa Hill's novels, the setting is breathtaking and as we are all staying safe at home right now, closing my eyes and feeling like I was there on the Amalfi Coast was pure bliss. The characters are deftly created and quickly felt familiar, and I cared about what happened to each and every one of them.
A wonderful story of friendship, choices, and being true to oneself, THE SUMMER VILLA by Melissa Hill is simply a joy to read with some surprises along the way that will keep you on your toes. A fantastic story by a fantastic Irish author. I look forward to the next book from Melissa Hill.
