ITALIAN SUMMER by Maria Grazia Swan

Book Description:
When they say, “you can’t go home again,” they’re talking about Mina Calvi, twenty-something Italian transplant to California. Still, nursing a broken heart, desperate to discover her place in the world, Mina arrives in the town of her birth in Veneto, Italy. In the decade she’s been gone, the village nestled at the foot of the Dolomites has changed much, yet remained oddly the same. Friends have moved on, family members passed away. Mina feels even more alone in her motherland than in America, and there seem to be too many bizarre deaths for such a tiny, serene village. Then a fresh chance at true love and a welcome bonding with a dear new friend give her hope. But the deadly secrets moldering in the centuries-old cemetery could rip it all from her and leave Mina emptier than before. Will she find herself or lose her heart again? Can Mina survive her Italian Summer?

This review is from: Italian Summer (Mina's Adventures Book 3) (Kindle Edition)

Italian Summer is a charming story of a woman returning to her native country for a quiet, introspective vacation, still mourning for her deceased lover. Bringing flowers to her grandmother's grave sparks a series of seemingly unconnected events into a tight, suspenseful tale of crimes and coverups. Beautiful Italy! Great characters! Romance! What else could you want? I highly recommend Italian Summer to anyone looking for a charming, suspenseful, quick read.
