my blog review one night in italy by lucy diamond

The blurb
How do you say ‘I love you’ in Italian?

Is Italian really the language of love? A new class of students hopes to find out.

Anna’s recently been told the father she’s never met is Italian. Now she’s baking focaccia, whipping up tiramisu and swotting up on her vocabulary, determined to make it to Italy so she can find him in person.

Catherine’s husband has walked out on her, and she’s trying to pick up the pieces of her life. But she’ll need courage as well as friends when she discovers his deception runs even deeper than infidelity.

Sophie’s the teacher of the class, who’d much rather be back in sunny Sorrento. She can’t wait to escape the tensions at home and go travelling again. But sometimes life – and love – can surprise you when you least expect it.

As the evening class gets underway, friendships form and secrets from Italy begin to emerge. With love affairs blossoming in the most unlikely places, and hard decisions to face, it’s going to be a year that Anna, Catherine and Sophie will never forget.
I really wanted to read this book i loved the gorgeous cover that what drew me to book i really did enjoy it 
Sophie one of the main characters has been travelling for years doing her travel blog as she goes along she now in Italy Sorrento when she gets a call to say her dad been took very ill she jumps on the first plane home she got no money so now she got to teach a italian class i felt her mum and dad wanted her to have a real job not working in a cafe but they did read her blog her dad was proud of her for doing that to me she was trying to face up to things she ran away for years ago i like now her family pulled together and talk thing through 
Catherine lives her life for her grow up kids her husband a GP but one day she home early and walks in on her husband with another women he leaves her he now want the house he left some paper work behind were all this money come from ? why he got another bank account ?they got one together she soon see her life was not all it cracked up to be 
Anna i did like her she made me laugh she a journalist who loves to cook peter her boyfriend wrote about their love life on a spreadsheet she not happy some bits of this are funny.

Catherine transformation from a downtrodden housewife to a independent lady fab i loved how her friend polly made her have her hair cut she had no say it how it looked some of the one liners were funny 
The book got newspaper policies and NHS corruption you can really relate to each character the food recipes parts were good to hear about it made me want to eat all the italian food 
I loved how all three character were so very different and now they were discovering them self at different times in their life’s 
The book a great mix of romance heartbreak and family life I like how each character develop some of the issues are serious and some fun most of the book base around sheffield but it got the Italian feel to it 
Great friendship were formed and secret from Italy begin to emerge a great easy to read book love affair can blossom any where .A nice fun summer read
