The Star- Crossed Sisters of Tuscany

Summary: A trio of second-born daughters set out to break the family curse that says they’ll never find love on a whirlwind journey through the lush Italian countryside by New York Times bestseller Lori Nelson Spielman, author of The Life List.

Since the day Filomena Fontana cast a curse upon her sister more than two hundred years ago, not one second-born Fontana daughter has found lasting love. Some, like second-born Emilia, the happily-single baker at her grandfather’s Brooklyn deli, claim it’s an odd coincidence. Others, like her sexy, desperate-for-love cousin Lucy, insist it’s a true hex. But both are bewildered when their great-aunt calls with an astounding proposition: If they accompany her to her homeland of Italy, Aunt Poppy vows she’ll meet the love of her life on the steps of the Ravello Cathedral on her eightieth birthday, and break the Fontana Second-Daughter Curse once and for all.

Against the backdrop of wandering Venetian canals, rolling Tuscan fields, and enchanting Amalfi Coast villages, romance blooms, destinies are found, and family secrets are unearthed—secrets that could threaten the family far more than a centuries-old curse.


Traveling With T’s Thoughts:


I knew I had loved Lori’s previous work- specifically The Life List- and when I saw this book I knew I had to have it.


What I Liked:

That cover is GORGEOUS!!!!!!

Emilia. I could identify with her. She’s “happy” but is she really happy? Or is she just safe?

Poppy’s stories. Oh my heart was in Italy with her- feeling her hope, her heartbreak, her love.


Bottom line: This book was my last book of 2020- and it was a perfect book to end the year with. So filled with charm, love and hope- I just can’t say enough positive things about this book.
