RRR presents... WE'LL ALWAYS HAVE VENICE by Leonie Mack - REVIEW!

Hi guys!
Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.

Today has been a day, and it's only just begun because I'm typing this bad boy in the wee hours of the morning. It's only going to get worse before it gets better (busy day at work ahead), but such is life and least the reading is good! Speaking of which, today's first post is coming at you and it stars a Romantic Comedy that's ready to whisk you away to the city of love as it extolls its many virtues, and we get up close and personal with our two potential lovebirds. Ladies and gents, please join me as we welcome Rachel's Random Resources and today's ebook of choice...

We’ll Always Have Venice
Leonie Mack

About the book...
Who can resist the romance of Venice…

When Norah arrives in Venice for a ten-week internship she is surprised to discover that her guide for her work trips around the lagoon is the undeniably gorgeous and kind Gianluca. She can’t help thinking he might be too good to be true, with his endless fascinating local stories, and his infectious laugh.

Norah is still bitter after an accident left her with a serious injury and also meant the end of her long-term relationship. And besides, she's serious about her career and that means leaving Venice at the end of the summer.

Gianluca has had a summer fling before that led to heartache for him and he won't do it again. He enjoys the long hours out on the lagoon with Norah, but after a storm strands them on a picture-perfect island for a night, they agree they should just be good friends for the summer.

But life doesn't always go to plan, and when it's time for Norah to go, they have to decide whether what they have between them is really just a friendship, and not something more…


This was like taking a vacation without ever having left my comfy reading spot. It took you to places you've longed to see, with characters you weren't likely to forget. I liked the blend of life, issues, science, family, and love. Okay, that was a mouthful, but it's true and I shall try to explain my reasoning....

Norah's life wasn't perfect, in fact, she was recovering from some pretty big issues, but she made the most of things, determined like heck to carry on. The issues stemmed from a life changing accident that took place barely a year ago. She survived, but is not without lasting scars, both to her body, and soul. The science comes into play with her field of work, or study. Who knew algae could be considered for a biofuel source? Apparently, she did, as did Manu...but she's another story altogether (so much history there!). The family...well, it starts with her mother (getting married for the first time, well over the hill!), continues with her sister, and carries right on over to Gianluca, Nona, and Manu...which require more explanation than I am willing to type here, but suffice it to say that if you've ever met someone and they felt like family from the start, this is totally like that. Finally, we have the love, and while you've think being where they were, it would have happened in a flash...but you'd be wrong. Yes, there were a few sparks thrown here and there, but anything worth having takes time, and these two (Norah and Gianluca) were so busy getting in their own way, it was definitely going to take some time.

In the end, they made it though...and that's all one can really hope for in fiction and life! My favorite parts were when they were "stranded" on the deserted island (not really deserted) and inadvertantly startled the friar (totally worth the awkward breakfast!), and when a certain Artic tern showed up where least expected. Take a trip around the world to discover a place to call home for your mind and your heart...
