Publication day for #UnderTheItalianSun @AvonBooksUK @BFLAgency

It’s publication day!

Under the Italian Sun hits shelves and devices today and I hope readers enjoy the escape to a sunny plateau high above a vineyard in Italy.

It was an absolute pleasure to write this book. Everyone else had to stay close to home but every day I could leave … at least in my imagination. Bodily I might have been in my study in England but in my head I was with Zia as she drove to Italy to search out Lucia Costa, the woman who she thought was partly responsible for Zia’s mouthful of a name – Zia-Lucia Costa Chalmers.

Lucia’s also the woman Zia thinks holds the key to who Zia’s till-then-unknown father is and even which Victoria Chalmers is actually Zia’s mother. Lucia loved Zia as a baby … but how will they get on now Zia’s a woman? Lucia, like her neighbour Piero, is fighting to keep her home, a fight Zia sometimes helps and occasionally unwittingly hinders. And Piero’s fighting so hard he almost lets Zia slip through his fingers.

I thoroughly enjoyed weaving the mystery of Zia’s past and whether she can find a family and a future in Italy. I hope it carries you away, as it did me.

#CoverReveal #UnderTheItalianSun #ForthcomingRelease @AvonBooksUK @BFLAgency

Here’s the beautiful, eye-catching cover for Under the Italian Sun, bursting with summer colour and escapism.

I was sold the first moment I laid eyes on this cover and I hope you love it as much as I do. It just seems to pop from the screen.

Here’s the blurb:

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?

Under the Italian Sun is available for preorder now:

I hope you enjoy your return to Italy and Montelibertà, which was the setting for One Summer in Italy, too. Umbria’s such a gorgeous part of Italy, one where I’ve spent a lot of time. It’s been a pleasure to let my imagination carry me back there as I wrote Under the Italian Sun, thinking of Zia spending a summer overlooking a sun-soaked vineyard in the valley below her as she searches out her own history. One that comes as quite a surprise …
