Escape to the glamorous Italian Riviera with Rosanna Ley

The Mazzone family have transformed an old convent building in Vernazza into the elegant Lemon Tree Hotel. But Chiara, her daughter Elene and her granddaughter Isabella can’t agree about what kind of hotel it should be…

One day, two guests check in. The first, Dante Rossi, a face from Chiara’s past, threatens to disrupt everything she has worked for. The second, is a mysterious young man who seems to know a lot about the history of the old convent and the people who live here. Although drawn to him, Isabella is determined to find out his true intentions and discover the secret past of The Lemon Tree Hotel.
