About the Book
Single mom Amber is perfectly responsible, except when it comes to her heart. Logan knows his best friend’s sister is off-limits, especially because of their explosive past — but when he gets a chance to win Amber back, how can he resist? Read by dual narrators, this fiery romance is sure to make you swoon!
How would I describe myself?
Single mom. Strong as steel. Stupid—because I listen to my heart and not my head.
This job interview was supposed to get Amber in front of me so I could apologize for hurting her. So I could figure out how to get a second chance to make her mine.
I don’t care if she’s had kids since us—I’ve always wanted to be a dad. She’s my best friend’s li’l sis—we’ll figure that out. I’ve got money—but I can’t buy her. I was her first—she was mine. I want her to be my last. Wait … is that even possible?
Contains mature themes.

Who doesn’t like pretending they are somewhere else for a little while. And a hilltop village in Italy sounds pretty good right about now! Get your own cappuccino or glass of wine and embrace a vacation of the imagination.
About the Book:
An Italian café. A barista with an eye for trouble. And a village determined to create as much as possible.
Chiara has presided over the espresso machine at Bar Birbo for as long as anyone can remember. In Santa Lucia, this is the only place to go for a cappuccino served with a side of gossip.
The town’s residents rely on each other and feel almost like a family, but their secrets are kept well hidden. While romance is in the air for some, the truth behind the love affairs is far more complicated than anyone can imagine.
When everyone has ulterior motives and unspoken desires, it’s only a matter of time before things finally come to a head. And unfortunately for the townspeople, the revelations could prove deadly.
Can the residents of Santa Lucia survive the inferno of their own making? Or will they burn in the flames?
“Santa Lucia is a wonderful, sprawling, satisfying novel….This was my favorite novel of 2017.” — Caseful of Clues
The fictional Santa Lucia features a cast of characters embroiled in the kinds of conflicts, secrets and mysteries not uncommon to small town life anywhere–from love affairs to tragedies. But Damiani also brilliantly weaves together the rich tapestry of a modern Italian hilltop town, which often includes immigrants such as Santa Lucia’s Fatima from Morocco.
“Damiani has followed up her beautifully written memoir, “Il Bel Centro,” with her debut novel, “Santa Lucia,” set in a place that bears much resemblance to real-life Spello, Umbria, where the author spent a year with her family.
About the Author:
Michelle Damiani is a writer living in Charlottesville, Virginia. She is the author of “Il Bel Centro: A Year in the Beautiful Center”, a memoir of living in an Umbrian village with her three kids and two cats. To encourage other families to leap into the arms of an international adventure, she gathered 36 traveling families to share their practical tips and experiences and wove them together in “The Road Taken: How to Dream, Plan, and Live Your Family Adventure Abroad.” Her life in Italy later inspired her Santa Lucia series. Three of the four novels, “Santa Lucia”, “The Silent Madonna”, and “The Stillness of Swallows” are currently available. When not planning her year traveling around the world, you can find her at www.michelledamiani.com.

Let’s welcome the new year the way most people do- with great resolutions! It is the time to reflect on the previous year and see where you want to take the new year. Here are literary themed resolutions that you can start in 2020:
Listen to more audiobooks.
Take a break from your average reading time and pop in an audiobook. It gives you the opportunity to multitask. Listen to your book at the gym, in the car or while you cook!
Take notes while you read.
Expand your mind and think about what you’re reading. Write down your thoughts or quotes. Then you can come back and read your notes later!
Read books on your reading list or create a reading list.
Lists are beautiful! It gives you a reminder of what you want and something to look forward to. If you’re like me, you need a list or else you will forget what you even wanted to read in the first place.
Write more book reviews.
Did you love it or dislike it? Either way write a thoughtful book review to give other people a look inside the book.
Try a different genre.
I know trying new things can be scary, but you might like it! Go outside your comfort zone of historical romance and try a new mystery!
Modify the resolutions to fit you! It always helps to write them down and keep it in a spot that you can use as a daily reminder.
Happy New Year!
