Rome is where the heart is… The heartwarming read of the summer.

Jo has had enough of handsome men. After a painful break-up, she’s decided she doesn’t believe in love.
Then, while on a professional trip to the magical city of Rome, she meets Corrado, a scientist and her brother-in-law to be, who doesn’t believe in love either. To him, it’s just a biochemical reaction. So what’s the problem?
Well, he’s gorgeous for a start, as well as charming, generous, intelligent and attentive, and she feels herself immediately falling for him, despite her new outlook.
The majesty of the Eternal City brings them ever closer together. But is their relationship doomed, or will love conquer all?
Heartbreaking and hilarious in equal measure, Dreaming of Rome is a joyous and uplifting read from T.A. Williams, perfect for fans of Holly Martin, Tilly Tennant and Jenny Oliver


Right from the start, this book drew be in, it was an absolute pleasure to read.

The characters are so well drawn and real. Jo is a lovely character, she’s been hurt before and she’s understandably cautious now about relationships. There’s an undeniable spark between herself and Corrado though. I do have to admit that my favourite character is probably Daisy the labrador though! She really has the lab personality.

The setting is, of course, magnificent. I’ve been to Rome once before, and it was as if I was transported back there by the author’s wonderful descriptions of the city. Through Corrado’s conversations, we also get quite a few fascinating snippets of Rome’s history too. I really enjoyed these, and it added real depth to the book.

This book has so much to offer the reader, humour, joy, wonderful setting and characters. It’s the first I’ve read by this author, but I’ll certainly be buying his other books, such a pleasure to read. A must-read to bring a little sunshine into your life.
