Under the Tuscan sun… 

It's everything Thea has ever dreamed of. A Tuscan wedding, the perfect dress, a handsome groom…and her wedding will unite two families in more than business. So why is it only when her groom's brother Zeke Ashton arrives that things start feeling right? 

Watching the woman he once loved sacrifice her happiness for duty is impossible. Zeke has to remind her of the carefree, happy girl she once was before she says "I do" if Thea—or he—is ever to have a chance at happiness….

Engrossing but feels incomplete.

Although I had some issues this was a thoroughly good read up until the last couple of chapters. I found the characters fascinating Zeke in particular who was strong yet vulnerable. I did find it hard to understand Thea's motives fully but could sympathise with her although she really should have considered herself first. I was a bit confused as to why it was set in Tuscany - the family appeared to have been living there for at least a number of years but there was no explanation as to why. The plot was engrossing but then the end was rather frantic. Thea acted both honourably and dishonourably and to be honest I couldn't believe 100% in her commitment to Zeke. A major revelation was made about her sister Helena which I didn't like and would not make me want to read the sequel in which she is to be the heroine and yet I feel that this book cannot be read entirely on its own and matters still need to be tied up. The secondary characters of Thea's father and Zeke's mother were despicable in their actions and attitude and I would like to think that Thea and Zeke walked away and didn't look back. So a superb read which unfortunately left me frustrated at the end.
