She then writes a script about her life and it becomes a big budget film starring two of Hollywood's best. When they arrive for a two day shoot she doesn’t expect to find an obvious spark with star Leo Vance who’s life is at a crossroads also. Can they overcome their baggage to find what they’re both looking for?”

One Italian Summer

“This book was the perfect read that I finished with happy tears streaming down my face. Rebecca Serle’s writing is beautiful and gripping, and I will now read everything she writes. One Italian Summer has a hint of magical realism with time-travel in the premise. Katy and Adam are both so relatable I found myself wishing I was friends with both of them. This book is a love letter to motherhood, overcoming grief, and rekindling lost love. This book also helped feed my wanderlust and made me want to revisit Italy as soon as possible. Serle paints a pictures of Italy so beautifully that I could see it for myself and it felt as though I was transported for a day. This story will make you crave to learn more about your parents’ past and will allow you to look at every relationship with fresh eyes. ”

Beach Read

By Emily Henry
Narrated by: Julia Whelan
Length: 10 hours 12 minutes

Beach Read

“ Full of wit and heart I fell hard for BEACH READ. A romance author seeks solace in a lakeside resort town to grieve the loss of her father, only to find her college nemesis and publishing's current literary darling is her next-door neighbor. The heroine is so funny and relatable (I too would like to keep a bottle of wine in purse for fortification). I loved it so much I read the physical book, and listened to the audiobook. ”
