When Pietro Bagnelli finds translator Ruth Denver on his doorstep, he has no inkling how she'll change his lonely life. Once engaged to his cousin, Ruth survived an assault but lost her memory, so she's come to Venice to start over. Pietro does all he can, including offering Ruth work at his tour company, but he can't give her what she really wants -- love. He's still mourning his wife, who died in childbirth, and Ruth fears she can't compete with the memory. Lucy Gordon's The Italian's Cinderella Bride (3) puts a mostly credible spin on a well-worn premise, aided by solid characters and a welcome sprinkling of wicked humor.
