The Secrets of Villa Rosso
Some places stay with you forever…
When Ellie Maddison is sent on a business trip to Southern Italy, she’s reminded why she loves her job – set amongst rolling vineyards and rich olive groves, the beautiful Villa Rosso is the perfect escape from her life back home. But what Ellie isn’t prepared for is the instant connection she feels to the estate’s director Max Jackson, or the secrets they share that are as intertwined as the rambling vines that cover Villa Rosso.
It’s not long before Ellie finds herself entangled in the history of the place, trying to understand the undeniable effect Max is having on her. As their relationship grows, what will Ellie discover about this idyllic villa and those who have walked through its doors?
What started as a simple work trip will change Ellie’s life forever.
4 Magical Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟
This was a beautiful story with a sprinkling of something a little mystical, a little spiritual, a little paranormal… not even sure how to categorize it, and I’m sure each of us will take something a little different away from it, depending upon our own beliefs…. I found it quite magical and it left me feeling serene….
Once again I got to vacation vicariously through my book, this time we went to southern Italy! The descriptions were so vivid I felt as though I was there and as always when reading a book that takes place in Italy it made me hungry! Villa Rosso was located in such a charming village filled with such delightful, Artistic, and talented people….
Ellie was a wife to her soulmate Josh and a mother to her two teenage daughters… she has just begun working part time for an interior design company and when her boss/friend has a family emergency Ellie is called on to make a business trip to Italy…. when Ellie arrives in Italy she meets with Max and there is something between them… Ellie feels as though she knows Max and she feels as though she has been to Villa Rosso before… is this déjà vu? Is this kismet? Can you have more than one soulmate?
You need to know this is not a romance… even though it is a book filled with love… it is a story full of mystery, Secrets, and discovery…. it was quite unique and I can honestly say I have never read a book quite like this before… and even if you don’t believe in fate or deep connections, you can chalk it all up to coincidence… as I said everyone will get something a little different from this book….
Absolutely recommend when you’re in the mood for a book about love and secrets with a bit of a magical vibe…
