LoveReading View on The Place We Met

December 2017 Book of the Month

Told in dual narratives from two English girls, Taggie and Lucy, at Lake Como, Italy.  Taggie is working as an events manager, Lucy is taking the new love of her life on a special treat.  Taggie has a past she is running from, Lucy a future she is running towards.  The huge coincidence, although the reader does see it coming, is the connection between the girls, not just over a man but how their past is entwined too.  Taggie meets a gorgeous, attentive and caring Italian and Lucy is determined to hang on to her man, come hell or high water.  It is New Year and fireworks are on the agenda in both senses of the word.  Great fun, building nicely to its charming conclusion.  Sarah Broadhurst
