Hallie Elliot has a perfect life. She is an up-and-coming interior designer in one of San Francisco's most sought after firms, and has just recently become engaged to Peter, a brilliant young journalist.

While staying in the Tesoro villa, Hallie falls in love with the splendor and beauty of Lake Como, and finds work designing the lakeside estate of a reclusive American tech mogul. The caretaker of this beautiful estate is a handsome man named Angus, and Hallie finds herself drawn to his charm and kindness, despite hints of a dark secret in his past.But just as Hallie is beginning to find her footing on Italian soil, she uncovers a family secret that upends all the truths she's believed about herself, and calls into question the new life she's built in Lake Como"--Provided by the publisher.

I enjoyed this book a great deal. I found myself completely enveloped in the story and what was happening with Hallie and her family. I didn't always view Hallie as strong enough when she needed to be, therefore, I became a bit annoyed with her. Anita Hughes has become one of my favorites now that I have read all 3 of her books. I would highly recommend this book as well as Monarch Beach and Market Street
