Publisher's Summary

Stella has life under control - and that's the way she likes it. For 25 years, she's been the trusted assistant to a legendary fashion designer, but after her boss dies suddenly, she's left with nothing to do apart from clear the studio.
It seems as though the life she wanted has vanished. She is lost - until one day she finds a house swap website and sees a beautiful old villa in a Southern Italian village. Could she really exchange her poky London flat for that?
But what was intended as just a break becomes much more, as Stella finds herself trying on a stranger's life. As the villa begins to get under her skin, she can't help but imagine the owner from the clues around her. She meets his friends, cooks the local food he recommends and follows suggestions to go to his favourite places. But can an idea of someone ever match up to the reality?
As Stella wonders if she can let go of the safety of her past, perhaps there's a chance for her to find a way into her future....

Give yourself a taste of Italy

I loved this book. The pace gave me time to gradually get to know and delight in the characters. I discovered the place through the eyes of Stella, her friends became mine. The plot was believable with natural complications which kept me wondering.
I recommend Under Italian Skies for all those wanting encouragement to make changes as their lives mature.
The Italian accented narration of the narrator added to the atmosphere.
