"Blissfully escapist." MARIE CLAIRE.

"Addictive!" GRAZIA




















Three women. One summer reunion.

Villa Dolce Vita, a rambling stone house on the Amalfi Coast, sits high above the Gulf of Naples amidst dappled lemon groves and fragrant, tumbling bougainvillea.

Kim, Colette and Annie come to the villa each in need of escape and in the process forge an unlikely friendship.


Now, years later, Kim has transformed the crumbling house into a luxury retreat and has invited her friends back for the summer to celebrate.


But as friendships are rekindled under the Italian sun, secrets buried in the past will come to light, and not everyone is happy that the three friends are reuniting…

Each will have truths to face up to if they are to find true happiness and fully embrace the sweet life.

An epic summer read about food, friendship and the magic of Italy.
