Blogtour: Review: Rome is Where the Heart Is by Tilly Tennant

This is the first Tilly Tennant book I’ve read and I have to say that I’m completely enchanted. Rome is Where The Heart Is gave me exactly what I was looking for- a real-life fairy tale in the sunshine.

Kate’s world is falling apart around her- and everything she had been planning and hoping for since she was a teenager has come to nothing. So she does exactly what any self respecting, heartbroken woman would do- she runs away to Rome (or at least, she does for a week of much-needed holiday!)

But her Roman adventure doesn’t start- or even carry on- as she planned. Sure it’s different to what she had in mind, but very soon Kate realises that her heart isn’t necessarily broken- just bruised. But Rome is working its magic and she quickly starts to heal.

Love, friendship and a rather scary Italian family are all waiting for her – the question is- will the magic of Rome last longer than just the week?

I’d love to meet Kate, Alessandro and Signora Conti- hang out at a street cafĂ© with them and ask Kate to make me a dress. But that’s the best thing about this book- it makes you believe in your dreams- and that they can come true- so maybe Rome isn’t that far away after all!

Tilly’s writing is as warm and welcoming as her characters, and makes for the perfect feel-good story with the occasional hit of reality to throw a spanner in the works. I thoroughly recommend Rome is Where The Heart Is- whether you’re craving romance or sunshine or  Rome or a tale of finding yourself and following your heart- this is the perfect (prefect perfect) book for you.

The Blurb:

Can a holiday romance ever have a happy ending? Escape with Kate to the sun-drenched city of Rome where a love affair is just about to begin …

When Kate’s husband Matt dumps her on Friday 13th she decides enough is enough – it’s time for her to have some fun and so she hops on a plane to Rome. A week of grappa and gelato in pavement cafes under azure blue skies will be just what the doctor ordered.

What she doesn’t count on is meeting and falling for sexy policeman Alessandro. But the course of true love doesn’t run smoothly – Alessandro has five meddling sisters, a fearsome mama and a beautiful ex Orazia. They’re all certain that Kate is not the girl for him.

Can Kate and Alessandro’s love last the distance? Or will she return home with the one souvenir she doesn’t want – a broken heart …

Fall in love with the colourful cafes and the cobbled piazzas of Rome and follow Kate’s dreams and her heart in this enchanting escapist read. Perfect for fans of Debbie Johnson and Carol Matthews.

About Tilly Tennant:

From a young age, Tilly Tennant was convinced that she was destined for the stage.  Once she realised she wasn’t actually very good at anything that would put her on the stage, she started to write stories instead. There were lots of terrible ones, like The Pet Rescue Gang (aged eight), which definitely should not see the light of day ever again. Thankfully, her debut novel, Hopelessly Devoted to Holden Finn was not one of those, and since it hit the Amazon best seller lists she hasn’t looked back. Born in Dorset, she currently lives in Staffordshire with her husband, two daughters, three guitars, four ukuleles, two violins and a kazoo.
