Publisher Comments:

Oh, the dream of escaping to Italy-and the nightmare of reality. . . .

Belinda Smith has found her very own Tuscan valley in the sun, having abandoned a dreary cheating husband and an even drearier English town. Running Casa Mia, her own too, too divine bed and breakfast, everything is coming up sunflowers and olive groves for La Contessa of the Valley. Life couldnt be more perfecto!

Until, that is, the arrival of Lauren-a beautiful, feisty Wall Street ball-breaker who has the gall to announce her plans to open a new B&B. A place just like Belindas-only much more glamorous. Even worse, Lauren, whose charmingly calculated smile Belinda recognizes as quite like her own, threatens Belindas existence as the epicenter of all things ex-patriot in the valley.

Have Belindas fabulous days of ruling supreme in this corner of the world come to an end? Will the carnivorous Lauren consume Belindas dreams al fresco? Will Laurens gorgeous son Kyle steal Belindas lovely, overworked daughter away from home and hearth (who will do the cleaning, for Gods sake?). War has come to lovely Tuscany-let the fur and focaccia fly!
