  1. Love To Teach

    This book. Where do I even start?I read this because my book club picked it. It is probably not something I would have chosen on my own. That being said, I gave it a chance, and thought it started okay. Then I started noticing things.First, why the shifting points of view? Lizzy and Ren tell their story in first person, Ty is inexplicably in second person, and Kylie is in third person. Why? It was really distracting to me.Second, way too much explanation of each character’s movements. “He gets up … walks to his left around the table … lifts his arm at a 52 degree angle, stares hungrily into my eyes with his electric blue eyes …” blah blah blah … zzzzzz …Third, what is with the ridiculous kidnaping of the daughter? It barely fits with the plot. There had to be some way to get Ty and Lizzy home from Italy that was not completely contrived.By the end of the book I was going to lose it if one more character “raked his hand” through his hair. Seriously.Overall, I teach high school kids who are stronger writers than this. Save your money.

    Stumbled upon this find while looking for expat reads. I was instantly hooked after :looking inside” and read it straight through. I can’t wait to read more of this authors books! I love books I can read that completely take me away and make me feel as though I am right there in the story or watching first-hand. I adored this <3 Never a dull moment, it kept getting better and better. I especially enjoyed how it didn’t end abruptly-like most reads. You know how you just really don’t want it to end? This author keeps giving more and more to the last sentence. Not over-done, it is perfect! It feels complete and I have closure. No wondering or uneasiness…I am deliriously tired as it is 2 am, I am hoping I am leaving a fabulous review. 🙂 highly recommend this book!!

    As I’ve been in Tuscany just recently, the title of this book appealed to me. I loved every page from start to finish. Brought back memories of my own time in this picturesque place. What I appreciated about this book is the decency of no sex scenes just good romance.

    First of all, I love stories that take place in Italy, beautiful, enchanting Italy. It is such a romantic country.This grandma loved “That Month in Tuscany.” I could not put it down once I read the first page. I was so happy that Lizzy chose to go to Italy by herself and even happier when she met Ren. I was hoping they both stayed in Italy and didn’t go back but life happens and Lizzy had to go back.I loved the ending – beautiful story, makes me wish I was young again. I would create a month in Tuscany. Tuscany has been calling my soul for years. I hope to see it one day. For now, I settle for seeing Tuscany vicariously, through the eyes of wonderful authors like Inglath Cooper.

  5. Amazon Customer

    I was hoping that this book would be a light summer read that would allow me to travel to the streets of Italy, but instead it is a cliché love story that becomes extremely boring and predictable. The characters’ basic backgrounds are extremely uninteresting and unconvincing that I couldn’t entirely believe that these people could actually have any real life problems let alone any character growth. The storyline was all over the place, especially the events that occur with the daughter which makes me realize that this author doesn’t seem to know whether she should make this book a romantic story or a thriller.

    I am one of those readers, who, even though I have a ton of books to read, will still buy more. Frantically, almost like they will disappear.I am not doing anything to  improve this condition. :)Amazon suggested this book to me and after reading about it, I wondered why, because I super rarely ever read romance. Especially the boy-meets-girl-loses girl-will he get the girl back?- type of Romance.I downloaded a sample, and was semi-hooked as I started reading.I was afraid with the Rockstar in it, it would give me too much of an 80’s vibe. Now, the 80’s were awesome, but unless it’s the movie Sixteen Candles or Pretty In Pink, I’m not interested.However, this did NOT give me an 80’s vibe at all.At the end of the sample, I purchased the rest of the book. Granted, it was predictable in a few places, but overall it was a very, very enjoyable read. So much so, that while I was on a conference call that didn’t require much of my attention, I finished reading it on the Kindle app on my smartphone.ALL of the characters are solid and well rounded. The story flowed and was beautiful. This book was originally titled Rock Her, but I feel the new title is so much better! And so much more fitting.That Month in Tuscany . . .Ren Sawyer and Lizzy Harper live completely different lives. He’s a rock star with a secret he can no longer live with. She’s a regular person whose husband stood her up for a long planned anniversary trip. On a flight across the Atlantic headed for Italy, a drunken pity party and untimely turbulence literally drop Lizzy into Ren’s lap. It is the last thing she can imagine ever happening to someone like her. But despite their surface differences, they discover an undeniable pull between them. A pull that leads them both to remember who they had once been before letting themselves be changed by a life they had each chosen. Exploring the streets of Florence and the hills of Tuscany together – two people with seemingly nothing in common – changes them both forever. And what they find in each other is something that might just heal them both.

    Poorly written, ridiculous, contrived, with characters as cliched as you can imagine. A waste of my time and probably of yours too.

  8. Kindle Customer

    I chose this rating because, this book caught my attention from the first page and never let it go. Lizzy had a little of me, even the marriage relationship with her husband Ty reached out to me. A twentieth anniversary and a husband who is married to his career and is just selfish. There are twists and turns and a lot of Italy scenery.Lizzy feeling alone comes to life again while in the company of Ren Swayer a rock star. They are both running from the life they have created and end up running away from it together. He reignites things within her she thought was dead.You will enjoy this book thoroughly.

  9. SouthWestReader

    Romantic fantasy of a 16-year old imagination written by an adult woman. Very predictable, unimaginative, disappointing. I also agree with other reviewers that the twist involving the daughter was unnecessary with no connection to the main story. There were so many other plot options that could have been used to produce the same result. Try Under the Tuscan Sun for the story you thought you were going to read.

    *spoiler alerts*Let me start with I am in a book club that has been meeting once a month for YEARS. I also read about 15-20 books a year outside of book club. I read a lot. This is probably one of the worst books I’ve ever read. Predictable, unrealistic, girl is in a dead marriage, goes on vacation, meets rock star (doesn’t know it), falls in love… The story isn’t well put together. There’s a random sex slave kidnapping (her daughter) which could’ve been a whole book in its self, but is only a couple of pages. I felt like I was reading a bad high schooler essay version of Under the Tuscan Sun (for the record, I loved Under the Tuscan Sun). We read this book for book club and we all loathed it. We spent the entire discussion talking over each other about how terrible it was and didn’t even finish the book club questions. In the end, we all agreed on our favorite character in the whole book… the dog.
