Oh, the dream of escaping to Italyaand the nightmare of reality. . . . Belinda Smith has found her very own Tuscan valley in the sun, having abandoned a dreary cheating husband and an even drearier English town. Running Casa Mia, her own too, too divine bed and breakfast, everything is coming up sunflowers and olive groves for La Contessa of the Valley. Life couldnat be more perfecto! Until, that is, the arrival of Laurenaa beautiful, feisty Wall Street ball-breaker who has the gall to announce her plans to open a new BaB. A place just like Belindaasaonly much more glamorous. Even worse, Lauren, whose charmingly calculated smile Belinda recognizes as quite like her own, threatens Belindaas existence as the epicenter of all things ex-patriot in the valley. Have Belindaas fabulous days of ruling supreme in this corner of the world come to an end? Will the carnivorous Lauren consume Belindaas dreams al fresco? Will Laurenas gorgeous son Kyle steal Belindaas lovely, overworked daughter away from home and hearth (who will do the cleaning, for Godas sake?).
