Now here’s one I’m looking forward to! The latest book from Sue Moorcroft, Under the Italian Sun, will be published on 13th May – available as an ebook, paperback and audiobook all on the same date (in fact, you might like to pre-order now…) – and I’m delighted today to be helping reveal the cover.
You’ll already know that Sue’s books are always personal favourites, so I know it’s going to be a great story – but I’m always really impressed by the covers that Avon choose for them too. As I look out of the window today at the snowy wastes, this is one that really lifts the spirits and makes you remember that it really won’t be winter for ever – I can really feel the promise of hot sunny days…
Let’s take a closer look…
The #1 bestseller is back with an uplifting, escapist read that will brighten the gloomiest day!
A warm, sun-baked terrace.
The rustle of verdant green vines.
The sun slowly dipping behind the Umbrian mountains.
And the chink of wine glasses as the first cork of the evening is popped…
Welcome to Italy. A place that holds the answer to Zia-Lucia Costa Chalmers’ many questions. Not least, how she ended up with such a mouthful of a name.
When Zia discovers that her mother wasn’t who she thought she was, she realises the time has come to search out the Italian family she’s never known.
However, as she delves into the secrets of her past, she doesn’t bargain on having to think about her future too. But with local vineyard owner, Piero, living next door, Zia knows she has a serious distraction who may prove difficult to ignore…
This summer, join Zia as she sets out to uncover her past. But can she find the future she’s always dreamed of along the way?
I’m so looking forward to this one – and I’m also delighted to share the news that I’ll be one of the bloggers launching the blog tour, sharing a publication day review. Join me again on 13th May… I wonder if I’ll be saying “her best book yet” again?!
