SOPHIE AND THE SCORCHING SICILIAN
SOPHIE AND THE SCORCHING SICILIAN (4) by Kim Lawrence: Sophie Balfour has been the butt of family jokes since she was a child. Shorter, plumper and less sophisticated than her society sisters, Sophie prefers to live life in the background where she’s less likely to be noticed. When divorced billionaire Marco Speranza hires Sophie to remodel and update his family estate in Italy, Sophie worries that she isn’t good enough to successfully complete the job. But Marco loves how she brings his home — and his heart — back to life. Now, if he can only convince Sophie to stay in Palermo as his wife. Readers will definitely fall in love with less-than-perfect Sophie. Lawrence has given her heroine a brain, a frank tongue and the wit to use both. A joy to read.
