Ad – review. I was sent a copy of this book for review purposes and all thoughts are my own.

Today I am involved in the book tour for Escape to the Tuscan Vineyard by Carrie Walker. Carrie Walker is a Brummie born rom-com lover with a lifelong passion for travel. She has lived in a ski resort, by a beach, in the country and the city, and travelled solo through Asia, South America and Europe. Her own love life was more com than rom until she met her husband a few years ago and settled down with him and her dog Ziggy in a small pub-filled village in Essex. Escape to the Swiss Chalet is her debut novel with Escape to the Tuscan Vineyard not just her second novel but it's part of a Holiday Romance series although can be read as a standalone.

About the book
Pack your bags and uncork the laughter in this delightful romantic escapade!

After getting her heart broken in her early twenties, Abi Mason vowed to live by a simple (but non-negotiable) rule: no second dates. Who needs a boyfriend, or anything else for that matter, when you have a career to think about?

But life has other plans: with some unexpected time on her hands, Abi finds herself on holiday in Tuscany. Among sun-dappled vineyards and olive groves, Abi meets dashing American Tony, and it seems the universe is conspiring to force her out of her comfort zone...

If Abi can break her own rules, could this unexpected Italian fling lead her to a happiness she never dared to dream of?

Escape to the Tuscan Vineyard is a beautiful summer read. Friendship is the main focus within this novel with such likable characters throughout. I'd have loved to have seen more of the romance between Abi and Tony though. The story is easy to read so definitely an ideal read that you don't have to focus on too much. I love the descriptions of Tuscany, Florence and Vence which has grown my want to visit Italy one day.
