Are you ready to be transported to the sweet and delicious world of Let's set the mood then.... First, click "play". :) ~ A romantic adventure in Naples, Italy

 "" is a romantic comedy, perfect for the chick lit aficionados. If you are a fan of Marian Keyes, Katie Fforde, Jill Mansell, Sophie Kinsella (the "Shopaholic" series), Jojo Moyes ("Me Before You", which was made into a film), Jane Green, Maeve Binchy, - then this book is for you!

Are you passionate about all things Italian (Italian food, Italian language, Italian culture), or perhaps you are going to spend holidays (or even a quick visit) in Naples? If you are, this book is also for you, and you can find Naples sightseeing tips (yes, a different Naples travel guide), including Capri, Pompeii, Ercolano and the great Vesuvius. There are also some insights on the Neapolitan mafia, the Camorra.

Carolina had only one thing in mind: to show everyone that she wasn’t a little girl anymore. That she could do well on her own. That she was a person with her own dreams and opinions and who knew what she wanted to do with her life.


Well, at least she was willing to find out.

An unexpected job interview via Skype and a job offer in Napoli help just graduated Dr Carolina decide to embark on the craziest adventure of her life.

In Brazil, her parents can’t understand what they’ve done wrong.

In Napoli, there is her English teaching job… and one of the most handsome (and richest) men she’s ever met ~ one of her students.

In Napoli, there is also Margherita pizza… and the sweetest man she’s ever met ~ her local pizzaiolo.

Carolina will find out that choosing a pizza topping isn’t the most difficult thing to do, after all…

Palazzo Venezia

And the best thing of all.... As my mother was my

"number one" fan, as she used to say, and never

got to see the book ready, I've dedicated this book

 in her memory (if you'd like to read about it, you can find it all on "Letters to my mother") and £1 from ever book WILL BE DONATED TO A CANCER CHARITY


So, I now officially invite you to dive in to the world of Carolina and her adventures in Napoli. For those of my friends who don't know English, don't worry. The novel is currently being translated into Portuguese, Spanish, French and Italian! :)
