Some say you should never judge a book by it’s cover but then, they also say never say never too, right?! The beautiful book cover for Dreaming of Rome gives a perfectly appropriate snapshot of the overall essence of the book. Of course, there’s more to this story than an attractive woman roaming the streets of Rome but it certainly gives you a good idea of what type of book you’re about to read… and read it, you must!
This book is for all the dreamers out there and anyone that’s looking for a fun, yet thoughtful read. In keeping with the theme of his other ‘Dreaming’ novels, this book is true romantic women’s fiction [without too much fuss in the bedroom scenes]. Filled with interesting characters and dynamic relationships, paired with the beautiful location, this book is sure to capture your attention in the best way possible.
I’ve always been a big fan of the small details that give meaning to a story and I truly loved the details peppered throughout. One such detail present in this book that I loved [and that’s a common theme in most of his books] was the presence of an energetic four-legged friend. The bond that forms between man and dog is such a beautiful thing to observe and I loved the way this furry friend was written alongside her favorite humans.
Whether you’ll be reading from the comfort of your home or while lounging in the sun on a beach chair, I highly recommend you add this novel to your Summer reading list!
My Rating: 5 / 5 Stars
