Having worked in Rome for four years, Sophie’s excited to revisit to Italy, even if it reignites memories of a cheating ex who soon learns of her return and wants to rekindle their spark. Sophie realises that distance does indeed make the heart grow fonder – but for her friend back home, Chris, who she discovers is more to her than just a friend.

I voluntarily reviewed an arc of this book. All opinions are my own and no content may be copied. However, authors and publishers may use elements of my reviews for quotes.
I am so pleased to be involved in the Publication Day celebrations for T.A. Williams latest novel: A Little Piece of Paradise.
T.A. Williams has a winning formula for writing contemporary romance novels that are pure escapism. He knows what works and his readers come back time and time again. For me it is pleasing and comforting to know as a reader we will get this and more.
A Little Piece of Paradise is a story set in a beautiful area in Northern Italy were two sisters who have had a turbulent relationship the last five years are reunited as they are joint beneficiaries of their late uncle’s medieval castle in Italy.
Their uncle didn’t want to make it easy for the sisters and his final wish was for them to be reunited therefore he placed a condition in his will that Sophie and Rachel had to live together in the castle for 3 months before the property could legally be there’s. Other conditions were also placed in the will but the main one of the girls sorting out their relationship was the deciding factor.
Three months is a long time to get to know the reasons why Rachel broke contact with her family but it is also a good time to learn more about each other. A lot has happened over the five years and emotions are running high.
Complications of the heart are not far from either of Sophie and Rachel’s minds but Sophie knows she can rely on her faithful dog, Jeeves. The author always includes his trademark dog in each of his stories and I always look forward to this as animals, dogs in particular, do bring a lightness and warmth to a story and can also bring out the best out of characters.
I loved this setting of the castle away from the tourist traps along the coastline. T.A. Williams loves his locations especially if it has historical and archaeological interest and this always transpires well on the pages. There is also a great love of the food and culture and it makes your taste buds envious of the delicious sounding foods enjoyed locally.
A lovely romance perfect to escape with.
Author Bio – I’m a man. And a pretty old man as well. I did languages at university a long time ago and then lived and worked in France and Switzerland before going to Italy for seven years as a teacher of English. My Italian wife and I then came back to the UK with our little daughter (now long-since grown up) where I ran a big English language school for many years. We now live in a sleepy little village in Devonshire. I’ve been writing almost all my life but it was only seven years ago that I finally managed to find a publisher who liked my work enough to offer me my first contract.
The fact that I am now writing escapist romance is something I still find hard to explain. My early books were thrillers and historical novels. Maybe it’s because there are so many horrible things happening in the world today that I feel I need to do my best to provide something to cheer my readers up. My books provide escapism to some gorgeous locations, even if travel to them is currently difficult.
