The Sweet Life
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
In Italy, the best attractions are always off the beaten path . . .
Mamie Weber doesn’t know why she survived that terrible car accident five years ago. Physically, she has only a slight reminder—but emotionally, the pain is still fresh. Deep down she knows her husband would have wanted her to embrace life again. Now she has an opportunity to do just that, spending two weeks in Tuscany reviewing a tour company for her employer’s popular travel guide series. The warmth of the sun, the centuries-old art, a villa on the Umbrian border—it could be just the adventure she needs.
But with adventure comes the unexpected . . . like discovering that her entire tour group is made up of aging
ex-hippies reminiscing about their Woodstock days. Or finding herself drawn to the guide, Julian, who is secretly haunted by a tragedy of his own, and seems to disapprove any time she tries something remotely risky—like an impromptu scooter ride with a local man.
As they explore the hilltop towns of Tuscany, Mamie knows that when this blissful excursion is over, she’ll have to return to reality. But when you let yourself wander, life can take some interesting detours . . .

Loved this story~ A very unique storyline with a great romance, a bit of humor, and some exceptional descriptive writing that brought Italy to life. These characters were incredibly fun and made the story unforgettable.
Mamie is dreading going on the tour of Tuscany for her job. Luckily she's there with a group of aging hippies who all attended Woodstock and might be a little stuck in the 60's making the whole thing intriguing with their stories. Add to that Julian, the tour guide, who Mamie finds herself attracted to and the whole tour is better than she imagined it would be.
Definitely a book I recommend to everyone.
