Santa Montefiore - The Italian Matchmaker

review written by Maggie Perkovic and reviewed live on the bookshow on 28th May 2015
This is the second book by Montefiore that I have read and also enjoyed.
Her hero is Luca, another dishy looking man in his forties with a broken
marriage and two little girls he hardly knows so he goes to Italy and stays
with his mother and father in their Palazzo Montelimone restored to its
former beauty but full of ghosts from its murderous past.
Here he sees a beautiful young woman obviously in mourning for someone,
and who has a strange little boy following her that only Luca can see!!!
Many characters abound in the Palazzo, Ma, a large amusing confidante,
an elderly Professor who wants Luca to help him with some transalations
and other various inhabitants who help Luca to make sense of his life and
all that it throws at him.Very good and very well written. Recommended
Maggie Perkovic.
