I adored The Food of Love and was worried that The Wedding Officer wouldn’t give me that same evocative feel of Italy. Thank goodness I wasn’t disappointed, and the narration of Richard E. Grant is just fantastic. If you are a foodie then this is an absolute must, but beware it will make you hungry and you’ll probably end up booking a trip to Italy after reading it!

Synopsis

The Wedding Officer by Anthony Capella

Naïve and already war-weary, James Gouding takes up a position in Naples in 1943. What he doesn’t anticipate is that this involves a limited menu of fried Spam fritters and interrogating the would-be Italian fiancées of members of the armed forces. James’s chance at true heroism arrives when a German tank is sighted and he is caught in its path. However, it is the imperious and dogmatic Livia who opens the hatch and yells at him to stop being such an idiot. Livia gladly becomes cook, translator and general factotum to James. The two begin to fall in love, but the eruption of Vesuvius triggers a chain of explosive events that will force the two to flee behind enemy lines and will alter their lives immeasurably.
