MY SYNOPSIS

Emily Price has always been fixer and planner, but her life takes an unpredictable twist when she meets Ben Vasallo. He quickly introduces her to his world, full of passion, colors, art… and broken things that are impossible to fix.

MY REVIEW

What a beautiful, beautiful story! I loved it!

This is the best book I’ve read by this author. So well-written and easy to connect with. Characters are lovely, the story is sweet and full of amazing lessons about forgiveness and grace and second chances.

Ben is my very favorite! He’s absolutely perfect. It was incredible for me to see how he put others’ needs above his own.

Writing is also really good, it made feel part of the story. I traveled all the way to Italy with Emily, and I got to love Monterello and its people as well.

I enjoyed learning about Emily’s job, Ben’s passion, and Joseph’s past. It’s a book filled with life, colors, words, food, art, languages, and much more!

There are some parts that are slow, but those didn’t bother me at all.

The message of the book is so good. I think I needed it. I’m a fixer, just like Emily, and I constantly need to be reminded that there are things that can’t be fixed, we just have to learn to live with them.

I only complain a bit about the end. There were some unresolved issues, and I was looking forward to some closure, but I loved this read anyway.

**I received a copy of this book from Thomas Nelson through Netgalley in exchange for my honest review. All opinions expressed are my own**
