Julie Caplin - A Villa With A View || Blog Tour


Escape to the Amalfi Coast and feel the warmth of the Italian sun on your face, hear the sound of the turquoise waves crashing on the beach and fall in love with a new enemies to lovers romance!
Lia Bathurst had always dreamed of escaping to the white sandy beaches and turquoise blue seas of the Amalfi coast – but that dream hadn’t included meeting her real father. A father she had never even known about until a few weeks ago! Yet here she was, standing outside the gates of a gorgeous pink villa being refused entry by the insufferable – and insufferably handsome – Raphael Knight, her father’s business manager. 
When an old black and white photo proves Lia’s claim to be true, Raph is determined to make sure this stranger, with her long caramel waves and infectious smile, doesn’t have an ulterior motive. Even if that means not letting her out of his sight. 
As temperatures rise, and not just from the heat of the Mediterranean sun, could Lia and Raph’s forced proximity lead to something more like… amore?

*gifted for the  blog tour*

I am a huge Julie Caplin fan and i have read so many books by her now so this was right up my street and i couldn't wait to join the blog tour to get a sneak peak at this read and boy was it worth it. If you are after something that is like a holiday in a book, a dip in the water to refresh your reading senses then this is the one for you.

Lia has always wanted to visit the Almalfia coast but maybe not in the circumstances she finds herself in, when she discovers her father isnt her father and its actually a famous actor she throws caution tot he wind seeking answers she finds herself outside a pink villa trying to get somewhere but there is one person stopping her - The business manager who really will not give an inch.

As it actually comes to light Lia may just be telling the truth - the pair end up constantly been thrown together and in the blissful sun surrounded by gorgeous food, family and high emotions will this lead to a bit of thawing?

I absolutely loved this book. I loved Lia - her passion for her work, the culture around her, the way she immersed herself in all opportunities was wonderful. She was a strong lady and very capable of standing her ground. Raph was written just as well, a slightly more complex when you first meet him but brooding and handsome make you want to discover what made him put his guard up in the first place. Throw in  a bit of chaotic family life, and gorgeous food & you really are on to a winner here.

& i spied its currenly only 99p on the kindle store right now!!
