Santa Montefiore - The Italian Matchmaker

This is the second book of Santas that I have reviewed. I do not think this one is in quite the same league but it is still a great escapist, if undemanding, read.
It is a simple but effective book. Great if you like a gentle romance, a memorable location and a bit of a mystery thrown in.
Luca, wealthy, ex-banker, half- Italian is going through a messy divorce. He goes to stay with his parents who have renovated a Palazzo on the Amalfi coast. The Palazzo is steeped in an unsavoury history involving murder. Whilst there Luca sees the spirit of a young boy and becomes drawn to the heart broken mother, who just happens to be the granddaughter of the murdered woman at the Palazzo..........
This book is filled with a pot -pourri of eccentric characters and will keep anyone amused and relaxed this summer.
