    "Well written, well read!"

    I found the book a tad bit difficult to follow, but after the first half hour, I was hooked. Beautiful story with many twists and turns in an enchanting setting. And bonus: The narrator was a pleasure to listen to!

    "Dull, predictable... and unconvincing"

    It seems to me this book is supposed to about the relationship of three close friends but as I listened to this book, it seemed more like these women barely knew each other and never really talked to each other. So much so that it's hard to buy the whole relationship and why they are all even vacationing together. *** Spoiler Alert*** When it becomes apparent that one of the friends was having an affair with one of their husband and was planning on running away with him - it raises the question, what kind of friend was this who would steal her 'best friend's husband?' and yet, the characters in the story don't really react to this fact... nothing in the interactions, reactions, responses and behavior of these 'friends' are believable. And don't even get me started on the other story line of Paolo and his mother and the 'wow what a coincidence' incident later in the book...

    Then I have to ask why the narrator had to use a cheesy Italian accent when speaking the parts of the Italians when they are presumably speaking to each other in Italian. It would have just as credible if she simply spoken their parts like normal and only resorted to the 'that's a spicy meat-a-ball' accent when they were struggling to use English to the English tourists.

    Wow, what a waste of a credit...
