Synopsis:

Some places stay with you forever…

When Ellie Maddison is sent on a business trip to Southern Italy, she’s reminded why she loves her job – set amongst rolling vineyards and rich olive groves, the beautiful Villa Rosso is the perfect escape from her life back home. But what Ellie isn’t prepared for is the instant connection she feels to the estate’s director Max Johnson, or the secrets they share that are as intertwined as the rambling vines that cover Villa Rosso. It’s not long before Ellie finds herself entangled in the history of the place, trying to understand the undeniable effect Max is having on her. As their relationship grows, what will Ellie discover about this idyllic villa and those who have walked through its doors? What started as a simple work trip will change Ellie’s life forever.


Review:

Vivid, heartwarming, and magical!

The Secrets of Villa Rosso is the enchanting, thought-provoking story of Ellie, a happily married, middle-aged woman whose life gets turned upside down after a quick, unexpected business trip to Itay leaves her pondering the inexplicable connection she feels to the villa, the country, and the director of the estate, Max, and has her questioning whether it’s possible to have two soul mates in one lifetime.

The writing is sincere and reflective. The characters are kindhearted, loyal, and appealing. And the plot sweeps you away into an engaging, heartfelt tale of family, friendship, community, self-discovery, obligation, life, love, mystery, and the intricacies of interior design.

Overall, The Secrets of Villa Rosso is a sweet, emotional tale with a picturesque backdrop, a little mystery, and an authentic feel that will leave you dreaming of sunshine and olive trees and have you contemplating the real power of karma and fate.
