From Rome With Love

From Rome With Love

Lucy Goff’s new job caring for the quirky daughter of a wealthy Seattle couple comes with an unexpected perk: being whisked off to Rome the week before Christmas. Putting up with fifteen-year-old Tabatha’s mood swings, not to mention Lucy’s own fear of flying, is worth the opportunity to explore The Eternal City.

But Lucy’s dreams of a relaxing European vacation are upended almost as soon as they arrive. Tabatha’s parents disappear, and Tabatha herself turns out to be more than a handful. The only person Lucy can turn to is Mario, the smooth and handsome Italian who volunteers to be their personal tour guide. Can she trust him? And what about Brad, the old boyfriend who wants to pick up where they left off?

When a mysterious painting opens up painful family secrets, it seems as though Lucy’s romantic holiday is over for good. Instead, she must confront not only her employers, but also her own feelings about love and loyalty.

Is she ready to see that Christmas is just the beginning?

What Readers Are Saying About “From Rome With Love”

Felt like I was in Rome with them!

The day I was lucky enough to win this book, was truly my lucky day! This was such a good book. I was totally immersed in it. The minute I started reading, it grabbed my immediate attention, and never let go.
I felt I was right there with Lucy as she tells in first person of her job as nanny of a teenage girl with lots of challenges and their subsequent trip to Rome for a Christmas trip. The descriptions of the city were very realistic and I found myself in Italy, enjoying the trip and the interesting mystery that developed.

I felt her thoughts as she was uncertain as to who to trust and who not to trust. Who to believe? I did have to laugh where perhaps others might not. She had a fall and I so totally related. Seriously, every time I go to Europe, I fall! In fact, my last trip, I told my family, just wait. I am going to fall and I did. Must be the European cobblestones!

I enjoyed every bit of this book. It had no dull moments and moved at a good pace to keep me reading. I totally loved this book.

Christmas in Rome or not!
This book drew me in from the first page. The author made this reader feel as though she was in Rome for the very first time. I felt the excitement and awe of seeing all the famous sites in Rome that draw tourists to this famous city by the thousands. There was an element of mystery in this story having to do with missing pieces of art hidden away by Hitler during World War Two.

If contemporary romance is your genre or if you are a fan of Kate Lloyd you will like this book. It’s pretty much clean read so fans of Christian Fiction would be comfortable with this book too. It is a Christmas story also. – Amazon Customer

Many Twists
From Rome with Love does not disappoint. If you love a quirky contemporary romance, From Rome delivers. Lucy’s dream trip to Rome turns into a nightmare when her mood flipping 15 year old charge’s parents disappear. What is Lucy to do? Lucky for her Mario, an Italian native, is available to help, but Lucy isn’t sold on his friendship. With so many twists and turns, I found myself turning pages to see what would happen next. A persistent suitor, a angry ex, a mood changing teenager, and a mysterious painting bring the story create a story that one cannot put down. I love how all of the characters were fleshed out and easy for us to relate. The depictions of Rome and the country side was well defined. I look forward to more from this author. I received an advanced copy form the publisher. A review was not required and done on my own. – Calliegh
