Luca Amore runs cooking holidays in the baroque Sicilian mountain town of Fasolino. He's taught many people how to cook the dishes passed down to him by generations of Amore women. As he readies himself for yet another course he expects it to be much like all the others. He will cook, he will take his clients to visit vineyards and olive groves, they will eat together, become friends, and then after a fortnight they will pack up and head home to whatever corner of the globe they came from. But there is a surprise in store for Luca. This time there are four women booked in to the That's Amore cooking school. All are at turning points in their lives.
All want something more than new recipes and cooking skills from their time in Sicily. Valerie has lost her partner of 20 years and is wondering if she'll ever be loved again. Poppy has split amicably from her husband and decided to create a life of independence and adventures. Moll is passionate about food and is hiding a secret. And Tricia is trapped in a job she hates and will do anything to escape it. Luca doesn't realise it yet but he is going to fall in love with one of these women. But which will it be? And what are the chances she will love him back?
Read Caroline Baum's Review
There are no recipes in this lighthearted holiday gastromance, except for how to live life. Preferably in Sicily, eating copious amounts of canolli and gelati with good friends and charming men. Predictable? Si, but a harmlessly charming bit of escapism for those who can't afford the airfare.
Luca teaches cookery to tourists in the Sicilian mountains. When a group of four friends arrive, all at different stages in their lives, he will fall for one of them. Who will it be?
