Publisher's Summary

Sometimes in life you need a little breathing room, especially when your life has just fallen apart. Dr. Isabel Favor, America's diva of self help, knows this all too well. She's lost her fiancé to a disorganized earth mother, her accountant has absconded with her money, and her self-help empire is in shambles. She flees the country to Tuscany, waiting for life to settle down, but the biggest disaster lies just ahead. On one unforgettable night, she's about to meet Lorenzo Gage, Hollywood's favorite villain.


What the Critics Say

"Phillips has created a very modern and textured tale: witty, moving, passionate and tender." (Publishers Weekly)
"Stunningly vivid descriptions and some of her most complex protagonists to date." (Library Journal)

An enjoyable read.

SEP is remarkably talented in developing characters, even those who are flawed, in a very endearing way. I like that both lead characters are very strong individuals and enjoyed the very witty dialogue between the two (most notably after their 2nd meeting).

Anna Fields (Kate Fleming) is the most enjoyable narrator I've ever listened to. I highly recommend listening to anything she's narrated! I grieved when I heard she died in a rain/flood related accident in Seattle, and will forever miss hearing her narrate new books.

Exceeded Expectations

I read the reviews on this audio book (they were mixed) but it is a great book. The characters are great and the story flows beautifully. At the very end it gets kind of quirky but was well worth the money. I will re-listen to it again as it was so funny in parts that my stomach hurt giggling. The narration is fantastic. It will make you want to go to Tuscany.
