What you need to know before your trail

Zelda’s impulsive nature has got her precisely nowhere up until now. A fresh start in a beautiful hilltop town in Sicily looking for new residents, together with her best friend Lennie, could be just what she needs. And who better to settle down with than the person who knows her best?

But the sun-filled skies and sparkling seas can’t hide the shadow hanging over Citta d’Ora, which means not everyone is pleased to see their arrival. The dreams Zelda and her fellow new residents had of setting up a new life might be slipping away. But a friendship with restauranteur Luca could be about to unlock the possibilities that lie in the local lemon groves. And there’s a wedding on the horizon that might be just what the town needs to turn it around…

Could a summer in Sicily help Zelda learn to trust her instinct and follow her heart?

Travel Guide

Travel to Sicily with Jo Thomas for a Lemon Grove Summer!

Oh it’s off to a very fragrant lemon scented Sicily with Jo Thomas. The village of Citta d’Oro is fictional but it sounds amazing as it’s nestled in the valley and mountains in and around Mount Etna. Imagine reading the book somewhere around here!

There’s a visit lemon groves, time spent making limoncello, selling lemons, learning Italian and so much more. The farmhouse where they settle sounds warm and fragrant. Remote, rustic and rural.

The stunning scenery in and around Mount Etna is quite the view! Imagine setting up home here, even if it is with a fake husband! To really get into the novel , you should visit the places the author did for research –  Villa Viagrande sounds perfect!
