Publisher's Summary

Gemma Jericho is an overworked New York doctor with a handful of a teenaged daughter and a mother who worries that Gemma has no life. So when her mother receives a mysterious letter telling her about an even more mysterious inheritance in Tuscany, Gemma sees her chance. The three of them throw caution and convention to the wind and leave for Italy. Gemma hopes that a change of scenery will bring back the closeness she used to share with her daughter. And perhaps the challenges of living in a foreign country will give her mother something to worry about beyond Gemma's social life. But what they encounter in Tuscany is far more distracting than Gemma expected: a crumbling old villa and a town divided. Half the residents believe that Ben Raphael, another American, is the rightful inheritor of the villa. As cultures clash, gossip soars and intrigue unfolds. Gemma is caught up in the most disturbing and delicious trouble she's ever had. And her summer in Tuscany will change her outlook and her life forever.

Don't be fooled.

Somehow I was expecting "Under the Tuscan Sun," and instead got a shallow, predictable, cliche-ridden romance novel, read aloud in a grating, irritating voice. I tried to stick with this novel, hoping it would lead somewhere other than down this sorry path, but I finally gave up before the end of Part One; I decided I had better ways to spend my time.

I was fooled

I tried to get through it, put it down and downloaded the second half after several months. What a piece of junk. The reader was extremely irritating, and the plot was ridiculous. It sounded like the author read a few travel books, then churned out this weightless drivel. This is no better than a Harlequin Romance.
