Elizabeth Adler is a master at depicting lush scenery, gourmet food, and the joys of travel. Here she tells the story of Lamour Harrington, a recent widow. She’s immersed herself in landscape architecture, but even creating beautiful outdoor “rooms” can’t bring back her happiness. When she’s faced with a devastating truth about the husband she adored, Lamour returns to the house on the Amalfi coast where she’d lived with her father during the happiest years of her childhood. There, she finds dangerous secrets, breathtaking beauty, two mysterious and compelling men, and the courage to live life to the fullest.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Carrington MacDuffie offers a capable reading of an audiobook lush with description. Her understated performance is ideal for a novel that crackles with details about everything from scenery to food, painting glossy portraits with words…The author’s words sparkle.”

    AudioFile

  • “Magic…[Alder’s] descriptions are so beautiful and clear that one could wander her cities with only this book as the map, and so evocative that the reader feels that he or she has also eaten pizza in a tiny café, and watched fishermen unload their catch.”

    Booklist

  • “Adler’s colorful descriptions of Italy are as enticing as the story. Romance and mystery fill this magnetic novel, perfect escapist fare.”

    " The book was a bit melodramatic and formula-ic for my taste. But I really enjoyed being transported back to places in Italy I have visited. Reliving the sights and smells and tastes was a treat. A good escapist read. "

    " Capri. Positano. Amalfi. The title conjures up memories of the southern Italian Gold Coast. If you need an escape, this well-drawn setting helps. Everything else is as forced as the protagonist's cheesy name, Lamour. 20 years after her father's mysterious death, a recent widow returns to Italy to unravel what really happened. Why she waited this long remains an enigma. In the process, our thirtysomething heroine is torn between a rich twentysomething Italian and his fiftysomething father. Can you say ICK!?! There are too many things wrong with this shallow story to recommend it, no matter how much you miss the Amalfi coast. "
