dreaming of italy 2

My thoughts…

I haven’t been able to read all of the ‘Dreaming of…’ books by T. A. Williams but it is my full intention to do so! The ones I have read haven’t disappointed. The books themselves are standalone but it’s just a nice way of bringing together a certain type of book.

Dreaming of Italy is beautiful. T. A. Williams is becoming well known for his (yes..his!) writing of beautiful scenes and transporting the reader into sunnier climates. His books are a mixture of romance, drama and history. There are always carefully reviewed historical aspects of the books which really helps to bring the places to life that you are visiting.

This is a book to read on the beach, or, in current circumstances, to sit out in the garden and enjoy in the sunshine with a glass of something cold. This is also a great reminder of the beauty of Italy at a time when it’s actually quite a scary place to be, like much of the world right now as we are gripped by a global pandemic.

About the book…

Up for a dream promotion, Emma won’t let anything get in her way – not even love.

Working for a major Hollywood film company isn’t all glitz and glam. But when Emma gets sent to tour around Italy to scout the perfect location for a new blockbuster movie, she’s not going to complain. Especially when it could make or break her career…

Historical adviser for the project Mark is a distraction that Emma does not need. As they explore the beauty of Italy, Emma starts to fall for the mysterious Mark, and soon finds herself torn between her job and her heart.

From the wild, northern mountains of Piedmont, down the vibrant coast of Cinque Terre and through the rolling hills of Tuscany, Emma’s journey becomes one of self-discovery as she questions her priorities in life.

About the author…

Firstly, my name isn’t T A. It’s Trevor. I write under the androgynous name T A Williams because 65% of books are read by women. In my first book, “Dirty Minds” one of the (female) characters suggests the imbalance is due to the fact that men spend too much time getting drunk and watching football. I couldn’t possibly comment. Ask my wife…
I’ve written all sorts: thrillers, historical novels, short stories and now I’m enjoying myself hugely writing humour and romance. Romantic comedies are what we all need from time to time. Life isn’t always very fair. It isn’t always a lot of fun, but when it is, we need to embrace it. If my books can put a smile on your face and maybe give your heartstrings a tug, then I know I’ve done my job.
I‘ve lived all over Europe, but now I live in a little village in sleepy Devon, tucked away in south west England. I love the place. That’s why you’ll find leafy lanes and thatched cottages in most of my books. Oh, yes, and a black Labrador.
I’ve been writing since I was 14 and that is half a century ago. However, underneath this bald, wrinkly exterior, there beats the heart of a youngster. My wife is convinced I will never grow up. I hope she’s right.
