An Escape to Remember by T.A. Williams

I’m so excited to tell you about this gorgeous book today. Thanks so much to Rachel’s Random Resources and Canelo Books for the copy of the book and invitation to be part of the tour.

She needed a getaway. What she found was a home.

When Louise surprises her boyfriend by returning early from a work trip, safe to say she wasn’t expecting to see him in flagrante delicto with another woman. Heart-torn and vowing to stay away from men, when Louise’s next project involves restoring an ageing hotel in Italy, she leaps at the chance to get away.

Managed by a crew of sextagenarians, the Grand Hotel del Monferrato needs all the love and care Louise can give it. But it’s hard to stay focused on the job when her thoughts keep straying to Vito, the reclusive and mysterious neighbour.

With his tragic past and her no-romance policy, Louise knows they can’t have a future. Yet something keeps pulling the two together…

A beautiful romance set in the hills of Turin

My Review –

A new T.A. Williams book is always such a treat, and I absolutely loved every minute of this latest one!

Louise is a character who I instantly liked, and I found her job to be fascinating. When she arrives at the slightly run-down hotel, she can see the potential of it, and the setting and the characters that she encounters there make for a potentially wonderful hotel.

As always, I was completely transported to the beautiful setting. The descriptions of the scenery, people and food of Italy completely immersed me in the experience.

There is so much to love in this book, humour, heartbreak, romance, gastronomic delights, and of course an absolutely adorable but slightly naughty labrador!

This story simply swept me away, and was the perfect escapism, but also a really enjoyable and beautifully written read.

My Rating –

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Author Bio – I’m a man. And a pretty old man as well. I did languages at university a long time ago and then lived and worked in France and Switzerland before going to Italy for seven years as a teacher of English. My Italian wife and I then came back to the UK with our little daughter (now long-since grown up) where I ran a big English language school for many years. We now live in a sleepy little village in Devonshire. I’ve been writing almost all my life but it was only seven years ago that I finally managed to find a publisher who liked my work enough to offer me my first contract.

The fact that I am now writing escapist romance is something I still find hard to explain. My early books were thrillers and historical novels. Maybe it’s because there are so many horrible things happening in the world today that I feel I need to do my best to provide something to cheer my readers up. My books provide escapism to some gorgeous locations, even if travel to them is currently difficult.
