Eleanor Blake, distraught after breaking up with her fiancé Will, decides to do what most would scarcely dare: Secretly follow him to the island hideaway where he's on holiday with the woman who took her place. But on the shimmering, sun-drenched Sicilian island of Panarea, distractions come in many forms and her fellow hotel guests Lewis and Frannie may not be all they seem either.

This is a perfect romance novel with travel notes
Very high in the category of interesting novels with a background in Italy.
Eleanor because she is realistically interesting and a unique character.
I liked the soft resonance of her voice. I liked that she did not "overact" the various voices when reading dialogue. She is talented.
Quite a few, actually. I liked Eleanor's initial encounter with Franny. I liked the scene on the hydropo boat over to Siciliy with Lewis. Moments with Natalie, the nymphet were thoroughly believable and well-characterized.
This book made me happy, engaged and not wanting it to end. I also greatly appreciated that the author did not "wrap it all up" with a traditional ending. It was a very good and happy-making read. The descriptions of the islands were priceless.
