Publisher's Summary

"New York, Paris, London - every grand metropolis - has its own irresistible attraction, but Rome so swirls with stories of saints and sinners...lovers and fighters, that she compels you towards her, like gravity.... No one leaves her unaltered. Part of you always loves her. This is the place where passions are aroused, senses inflamed, and lovers fall into each other's arms. It all appears to unfold like magic, but I will tell you what really happens.... Come with me, if you will, and observe my labors."
Mark Lamprell's One Summer Day in Rome is an enchanting audiobook about three couples drawn irresistibly to Rome, narrated by the city itself. Alice, an art student in New York City, has come to Rome in search of adventure and inspiration before settling down with her steady, safe fiancé. Meg and Alec, busy parents and successful businesspeople from LA, are on a mission to find the holy grail, a certain blue tile that will make their home renovation complete - but soon it becomes clear that their marriage needs a makeover as well. Connie and Lizzie are women of a certain age - "Sometimes I look at my laughter lines and wonder what on earth could have been that funny" - who come from London to scatter the ashes of their beloved husband and brother. Both women are seemingly done with romance, but Rome has other ideas.
Brimming with wit and charm (and gelato), One Summer Day in Rome is the most delicious audiobook you will listen to this summer.

Wonderful book about life and love - Would highly recommend

This is one of the best books I have read (listened to) in a long time. The story just grabs you and I had a hard time putting it down. The aspect I loved most about this book is its perspective on life and love. Although love takes different forms it can last a lifetime, so long if you don't base it off of lists. I would highly recommend this book to anyone wants to escape to Rome for an afternoon by a lake, or an evening with the crickets chirping outside, or even a morning snuggled by a fire.

Loved this book!

This book is delightful. It is funny, entertaining, well written, compelling & weaves a wonderfully connected path between all the main characters & also an “inanimate object” (not to give anything away).
it is superbly read/performed by the narrator whose voice has a wonderful tone & he is spot on with the different accents & speech innuendos. I wish this author had more books on Audible.
