THE HOUSE IN AMALFI

Author(s): 
Adler takes readers to the picturesque Italian coast, where a woman finds closure through the secrets of her past. Lamour Harrington has mourned the death of her husband, Alex, for two years. Then Lamour's best friend reveals that Alex was planning on leaving her before his death. Lamour is devastated.

She flees to Amalfi, Italy, where she lived with her father, a onetime author, before his death at sea 20 years ago. Lamour revels in pleasant memories of carefree days with her father as she searches for the truth about his death.

Her unwelcoming neighbor, Lorenzo Pirata, fuels her determination to permanently relocate to the Italian cottage. And romance blossoms when Lamour meets Lorenzo's son, Nico, who's 10 years her junior. But the true romantic intrigue lies in Lamour's attraction to Lorenzo, a widower whose knowledge of her father's past adds to his allure. Adler's colorful descriptions of Italy are as enticing as the story. Romance and mystery fill this magnetic novel, perfect escapist fare. (Aug., 368 pp., $24.95)
