BLOG TOUR: The Summer Villa by Melissa Hill

I'm really excited to be a part of the Blog Tour for The Summer Villa by Melissa Hill. As soon as I saw this cover I thought of warm weather and happiness. I received a free copy for honest review from the publisher. Thanks so much to MIRA and Melissa Hill for giving me the chance to read this book and be a part of this fun tour!

Title: The Summer Villa
Author: Melissa Hill

Synopsis: Three women. One summer reunion. Secrets will be revealed…
Villa Dolce Vita, a rambling stone house on the Amalfi Coast, sits high above the Gulf of Naples amid dappled lemon groves and fragrant, tumbling bougainvillea. Kim, Colette and Annie all came to the villa in need of escape and in the process forged an unlikely friendship.
Now, years later, Kim has transformed the crumbling house into a luxury retreat and has invited her friends back for the summer to celebrate.
But as friendships are rekindled under the Italian sun, secrets buried in the past will come to light, and not everyone is happy that the three friends are reuniting… Each woman will have things to face up to if they are all to find true happiness and fully embrace the sweet life.
An epic summer read about food, friendship and the magic of Italy, perfect for fans of Mary Kay Andrews and Susan Mallery. (Synopsis from Goodreads)

My Thoughts: This was a nice, little reading vacation. I got to travel to the Amalfi Coast in Italy, which I've never been to in real life. It sounds like a beautiful place. I just really liked the atmosphere in this read. It had the feeling of a trip abroad.
It was also a story about three people coming together and becoming friends. They all have different things going on in their lives, but at Villa Dolce Vita, they can relax and enjoy the sun.
We as readers get to follow each character's story: Kim, Colette, and Annie. It was fun seeing before and afters of where they started and where they are at now.
All in all, I thought this book was a lot of fun. Sometimes the descriptions could be a little much, but it did add to the overall flavor of the story. This is the perfect kind of vacation reading. A book to get your mind off the real world. I had a good time reading it.
