Last of the Summer Vines ‘A gorgeous love letter to Italy’ Kat French
‘All I can picture is myself in Tuscany…A book that will sweep you away’ Jo Watson, bestselling author of Love to Hate You
Love grows where you least expect to find it…
When ambitious workaholic Sarah Wells discovers she has inherited her estranged father’s vineyard near Montalcino in Tuscany, the last thing she wants is to take time away from her busy schedule to sort out a crumbling mess of a palazzo. But, of course, life never runs smoothly and when she makes a rare error, her bosses decide a holiday is just what she needs.
When Sarah arrives in Italy, she learns that she is not her father’s sole heir. In fact, she only has a partial stake in Castel Sant’ Angelo because of a loophole in Italian law. Her father has left the vineyard instead to his business partner, the gorgeous and infuriating Tommaso Di Biasi – and Tomasso doesn’t want to sell.
At first, Sarah wants the deal done as quickly as possible so she can get back to her life in London, but it seems Italy has other plans for her. Under the warmth of the Tuscan sun, with a glass or two of the local vino rosso, and brooding Tommaso challenging her all the way , Sarah starts to realise that that there might just be something to la dolce vita…

About the author
Romy Sommer always dreamed of some day living inside one of the fairy tales in her head. Now, as a 2016 finalist for the Romance Writers of America® RITA Award for her novel Not a Fairy Tale, and as Chairperson of ROSA (Romance Writers Organisation of South Africa), all of Romy's dreams have come true. She is not only a multi-published author, but as a writing coach and teacher, she helps make other writers' dreams come true too.
Though Romy's heart lies in Europe, she doesn't cope well with the cold, so she lives in sunny South Africa, in the City of Gold, Johannesburg, where she is mom to two little princesses and a pet dragon (okay, he's a bearded dragon, but that counts!)
Romy writes contemporary fairy tale romances and historical novellas set in the 1920s.
