THE BASLICATO by Carol Ann Kauffman

THE BASLICATO is dedicated to my wonderful father who was born in Tursi, Italy in Basilicata Province, in the southern Italian countryside nestled into the side of the mountains.  Southern Italy has a flavor all it's own, and I hope some of that comes through as you read the parts set in Italy.
The story also focuses on racing, fast well-made cars, and the wild men behind the wheel, full of life and full of love.    

Some Reviews:

5.0 out of 5 stars A surprise of a read! March 27, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
This author wrote a story that kept me intrigued and biting my nails all the way through! The characters are so vivid and likable! Recommended to anyone. It really is a captivating book with treachery at its core! A romance to last for all time. What a strange combination but it ooooh it works so well!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Baslicato 4 April 2014

The idea of a book about a racing driver which is partially set in southern Italy attracted me and I wasn't disappointed. The plot was unusual and intelligent. The character of Jason/Richard was extremely well written and I definitely sympathised over his confusion at having another man's memories while in his own body. The love between Richard/Jason and Nicole/Brook was very touching and the chemistry between them was evident without being gratuitously described in a graphic way. Carol Ann Kauffman's characterisation was excellent.

This book is part of the Time After Time series but I found that although I started in the middle of the series it was still easy to understand what was happening. The books do not need to be read in order. I'm really looking forward to reading more in the series.
