  • Synopsis: Kathleen James has put her practical side away for once and looks forward to the perfect romantic evening: an intimate dinner with the man of her dreams—and an engagement ring. She is not prepared to hear that he wants to bring his grandmother back from Italy to live with him. Dominic Lawrence has planned this marriage proposal for six months. Nothing can go wrong—until his Nonna calls. Now he must interrupt the tenderest night of Katie’s life with the news that another woman will be under their roof. When Antonia’s sister dies, she finds herself longing to be back in the states. An Italian wartime bride from the ‘40s, she knows how precious love can be. Can her own story of an American soldier and a very special collie once again bring two hearts together at Christmas?

  • Review: What a beautiful story....actually, you get two holiday romance stories in one. There is the story of Antonia and her American soldier, wrapped in the story of Dominic and Katie. Both stories are touching in their own ways.

  • The historical part of the story is very descriptive and leaves you waiting anxiously, just like Katie, to hear the next part of it. And I loved the part that Dante played in the story, and how he also played a part in the present day story as well.

  • A sweet clean romance that makes a quick and easy read.

  • **I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are entirely my own.**

  • Rating: Four stars
