Book Review: An Italian Dream by Kate Frost *AD gifted

I was provided with a free ebook of An Italian Dream by Kate Frost ahead of the blog tour.

Kate Frost has yet again captured summer on the page in An Italian Dream. It's like the author's super power.

An Italian Dream by Kate Frost book cover

Follow your heart and then your dreams…

Best friends since childhood, Fern Chambers and Stella Shaw have been through everything together and are at a crossroads in their lives.

Carefree Stella has a monumental secret and put upon Fern’s happy life is not all it seems.

With their 40th birthdays approaching, a luxury holiday to the island of Capri is a chance for them to reconnect, let their hair down and celebrate in style. But untold truths and frustration bubble beneath the surface, turning what should be a holiday of a lifetime into an opportunity to make life-changing decisions.

Far from home, where anything feels possible, secrets are revealed, heartache is shared, love discovered and new friendships forged.

Will their Italian dream turn into a nightmare or lead to newfound happiness?

5 Word Review: Family, love, loyalty, wealth, secrets.

What would you do if you won the lottery? I have ideas of what I'd like to do, and you know what? A luxury holiday in Capri sounds just the ticket.

An Italian Dream was the perfect poolside read. It begs to be read on a hot sunny beach. You will want to pick it up on a long summer's evening in the garden. It's just perfect.

Stella and Fern are both amazing character, living rather different lives. Fern is married, perhaps not happily, with two grown daughters who have flown the nest. Stella is twice divorced but not on bad terms, and although her oldest is grown, her son is still young enough to split time between her and her ex.

They have such an amazing friendship, and I want to be like that with my besties in ten years time. But their friendship is tested in this book: are there some betrayals you cannot heal from? 

I loved the themes explored in this book: friendship, family, love, trust, betrayal. Emotions were high

Kate Frost has yet again worked magic with the setting: I. Was. There. As much as I loved the luxury of Stella's experience, I loved the sound of Fern's more. I like a quiet life, and the thought of the retreat is just amazing.

I can't wait to read more of Kate Frost's books, they're fast becoming an auto-buy author.
