Description

Let Elizabeth Adler sweep you away to the dramatic cliffs and ocean of Italy's Amalfi coast, in this novel of secrets, memories, and unexpected love…

Lamour Harrington's husband died two years ago. Since then, she has immersed herself in her landscape architecture, but even creating beautiful outdoor "rooms" can't bring back her sense of peace. When she's faced with a devastating truth about the husband she adored, Lamour needs a place to recharge. She returns to the house on the Amalfi coast where she'd lived with her father during the happiest years of her childhood. But the house of her memories has secrets all its own, forcing her to face new truths about another man she once loved. Was her father's death truly accidental? Or was he hiding something that caused his early demise? Torn between two mysterious and compelling men, Lamour discovers that the past has a way of returning when you least expect it. And someone wants to ensure that Lamour doesn't uncover the secrets of this idyllic, dreamy coastal getaway. As the past and the present collide in a shattering and suspenseful climax, Lamour must face the things she fears the most, in order to find the courage to live life to the fullest. The House in Amalfi is addictively page-turning, a novel to tantalize every sense and keep you spellbound.

From Publishers Weekly

Jun 20, 2005 – With her 16th novel, Adler (Last Time I Saw Paris, etc.) once again brings a far-flung locale to life with escapist flair, taking the reader along with the questing heroine on a trip to the coast of southern Italy. Two years after her husband's unexpected death, landscape architect Lamour Harrington suffers more heartbreak when she learns of his infidelity. So she sells her apartment and, along with her dear friend Jammy, leaves windswept Chicago for balmy Italy, where she hopes not only to alleviate her recent grief but also face other ghosts of her past. When she was 17, her father, a novelist, died in a mysterious boating accident while they were living on the Amalfi coast. Seeking to recover her spirit and understand her father's death, she returns to the house they shared. Near the azure waters of the Mediterranean, Lamour's grief begins to lift immediately, especially after she reacquaints herself with the area's charms, including men eager to woo her. But her neighbors seem to know something about her family's past, and she begins to unravel the events leading to her father's death. Despite clunky dialogue, the novel engages with a light story and luscious descriptions of food and scenery.

Customer Reviews

The House in Amalfi

The book was great. Elizabeth Adler has a way of telling a story and bringing the characters to life. She make the reader feel like you are right there with the characters. I can't wait to read the next book.

Amalfi

I read this on the way to Amalfi for our honeymoon and I found the descriptions very precise and helpful and fun. I did find that it ended to abruptly and that it was very predictable towards the end. Easy read.
