Summary

When pragmatic, sensible and resolutely single Deirdre York (Didi to her friends) is sent to Venice for work she is determined not to be taken in by the romantic clichés. Winter in the floating city may be breathtakingly beautiful, but she’s here with a clear purpose and will not let the magic of Venice distract her.

Piero Zanetti is the epitome of the handsome yet tortured artist. Heartbroken by the end of his love affair with a glamorous opera singer, he has lost his ability to work, and his inspiration has drained away, along with his zest for life.

But Didi needs Piero working - she has been tasked with commissioning him to do a glass centrepiece for a luxury department store Christmas display - some how Didi has to cheer Piero up or at least find him a new muse....

As Didi and Piero slowly become friends and as Venice starts to melt Didi’s heart and gently nudge Piero out of the blues, something special begins to happen. Can Venice - the City of Love - work a Christmas miracle and help Didi and Piero to find their happiness at last?

Leonie Mack is back with the most gloriously romantic escape, perfect for all fans of Mandy Baggot, Jo Thomas and Carole Matthews.

Critic reviews

"Leonie has written another gorgeous love letter to Italy. She’s fast becoming a favourite of mine with her warm, relatable heroines, beautiful settings and brooding romantic heroes. I cannot wait to return to Venice for Norah’s story." (Sarah Bennett)
