Fresh out of college, Carter Quinn has returned to his home in North Providence, Rhode Island, unsure of just about everything except his plans to go to Italy and pursue the woman of his dreams. To do that, he needs to learn to speak Italian, and only one man is right for the job—Giancarlo Rosa…if Carter can survive him.

Giancarlo is nobody’s fool. The middle-aged music professor does offer Italian lessons, but only to those who are truly motivated. If Carter wants to learn, he will have to prove himself: lessons three times a week, hours of studying, strict discipline. And there will be no questions about the professor’s life—why he hasn’t written music in years, why he lives alone, and why he left his homeland in the first place. Carter may see Italy as a land of romance, but Giancarlo knows just what disappointments and betrayals live under the Abruzzo sky. What begins as an apparent mismatch between mentor and student soon blossoms into something deeper—a friendship that carries them into the old country, where forgotten secrets may hold the key to a new lease on life.

“Pezzelli makes readers want to believe in love at first sight, and his earnest storytelling should win over its share of readers.” --Publishers Weekly
