Louise thought her relationship with Tom was stable and that it could lead to a commitment after being together for
five years. She did not expect to walk into the house and find him in bed with another. The offer of going to Italy
to supervise and upgrade a neglected property seemed the ideal out for her which she gladly took.
The story evolves from Louise going to Italy and finding the property challenging and interesting with a nice mix of
characters in the hotel and the inscrutable Professor Vito with an ex boyfriend Paolo also thrown into the mix. More
than Louise's budding romance, I found the setting and background very enjoyable and the work involved in getting a
neglected property to par fascinating reading. The addition of all the food of Turin included in the story was mouth
watering as well.
Altogether a very pleasant read.

On a non book note, we are still in the midst of mile long queues for petrol, diesel, kerosene oil for cooking and now
gas for cooking as well. This has given me a headache because the gas shortage has brought it very close to home. We live
in a flat so it is out of the question to have a firewood cook out which is what many people are setting out in their homes.
It is a worrying thought.
