What you need to know before your trail

Life is tough for Penny. A dead end job in a London café, a boyfriend in Australia and an art career going nowhere. But then Penny is approached with an extraordinary proposition.

It isn’t going to be easy but, if she can pull it off, she will turn her life around and at long last get to visit Venice – something she’s wanted to do for a very long time.

But will she get to go to Venice and will things work out as planned?


Travel Guide



The narrow lane was lined with shops, many of them gift shops selling the carnival masks for which Venice was famous, as well as everything from wallets to T-shirts and, this time of ear, wooly hats.

From time to time she came across narrow canals, crossed by ancient bridges that left just enough height for gondoliers and their boats to squeeze through underneath.

Rialto Bridge

They take a gondola ride along the grand canal under the Rialto bridge and through the maze of side canals some little wider than their boat..before entering into the open waters of the lagoon

The Grand Canal

They float along the Grand Canal and pass by some of the most magnificent  incomparable palazzi and some of the greatest art galleries in the world.

Booktrailer Review

Susan: @thebooktrailer

Well any book which states or even mildly suggests that I might “Find love, friendship and prosecco – in the magical city of Venice’ and I’m there. The cover is gorgeous and immediately made me want to jump in to that lovely blue sea.I imagined I was that woman in the blue straw hat….

It was a lovely read – There’s some serious issues in the book but they’re dealt with such warmth and care and attention that you start to care for these characters in ways you might never have thought of – that Penny is an interesting if not slightly quirky and clumsy character..and as for dog….ah bless him! I’m not even really a dog lover but I want to adopt this one . There are some lovely laugh out loud moments throughout the story, some romance and all in the city with more water than most – think they’re the result of tears – both happy and sad ones you might produce when reading this book! The book really captures the spirit of the city and the charm of its art galleries and treasures. Take this on a tour and you’ll notice things you might not otherwise!

A definite feel good read for the beach or on a gondola ride around the Grand Canal if you’re lucky?
