The story revolves around Kate, who suddenly finds herself free to do as she wishes after her long time marriage to childhood sweetheart Matt comes to an end when he walks out. Kate has always wanted to travel but been held back by Matt's unwillingness to venture far. She sets off for a holiday in Rome, a city she has longed to experience more than anywhere. There she first encounters Jamie, an American who helps her find her way around and introduces her to some of the Roman culture, and then meets the incredibly handsome Alessandro, a local policeman. By the end of her week, she finds that she has not only fallen in love with a city, but also with a man and has made a new friendship that is made to last. When she finally has to return home, Kate is torn between a desire to up sticks and return to this place she has become incredibly drawn towards and her family, especially her sisters Anna and Lily with whom she has a close relationship.
Although this is a beautiful love story, all is not plain sailing for the main characters. There is quite a bit of drama going on throughout, with a few mishaps at home and in Rome for Kate and her fiends and family. It all adds up to a book which, as I said at the beginning, is difficult to put down. I'm glad to see that there is a sequel on the horizon. I'm looking forward to finding out how things progress for everyone and experience a little more of life in Rome.
Her antics in Rome entertained and intrigued me, I couldn't wait to see who she would meet and what she would get up to next. Jamie was a wonderful character, although I was a little unsure about his intentions to begin with, he was pretty much guaranteed to put a smile on my face whenever he made an appearance. Then there was Alessandro, what can I say *swoons*. In my opinion, a good looking man in a uniform should always feature somewhere in a storyline!
Inevitably, complications arose and Kate found herself faced with some difficult decisions. I guess when so much happens in the space of just one week, it isn't easy to know what to do for the best. As the reader, however, I had a strong opinion about what she should do and I had to stop myself from verbally telling her what to do (talking to my Kindle is something I'm trying to cut down on).
The authors writing style seemed to pull me into the storyline so that I felt involved - when things went wrong I worried and when things went right I smiled. I like a book that can affect me in that way.
This was a delightful read that brought a smile to my face and swept me away to the warmth of Rome.
Kate has been cruelly dumped by her husband on Friday the 13th, Matt is all she has ever known as they were best friends and childhood sweethearts so this is particularly tough on Kate. Upon the finalisation of the divorce, Kate decides to do something crazy and out of character so books a week away to Rome....alone! As soon as she arrives in Italy, Kate meets Jamie who saves her from being swindled by a taxi driver. Jamie is on a business trip from America and they quickly form a friendship. I adored Jamie, everyone needs a Jamie in their lives!!
I won't spoil how it happens but Kate later also meets the charming and terribly good-looking Alessandro who makes her begin to believe that there is life after Matt....even if it's only for a few days whilst living the dream in Italy.
Rome is Where the Heart is has made me want to visit Rome (even more than I did before) and is pure escapism, the romance of potentially finding the love of your life during a chance meeting in a foreign country is wonderful. I just couldn't put it down. I loved Kate, Jamie and Alessandro - these characters soon begin to feel like your friends. This book explores finding love again and family bonds as Kate's sisters are fiercely protective over her...Read more ›
