    1. One Summer in Tuscany was previously published in 2008 as ‘Summer School’Set in the idyllic Tuscan hills, Patricia Wilson’s 18th century home earns its keep (or tries to) by playing host to guests on a residential creative writing course. The two week course includes tuition from author Jeremy Bullen and features sightseeing trips into Rome and Florence as well as the chance to explore the local landscape. For the guests it is a chance to hone their writing skills and to have their writing [...]

    2. I'm not usually drawn to popular fiction but thought I'd read some Elly Griffiths who I discovered is actually Domenica De Rosa. I shall read more of her books when I need something lighter - this was a great anti-dote to Dorian Gray which I didn't bother to finish!

    3. With the threat of bankruptcy over her head, Patricia really needs an injection of cash. Maybe one of her summer school guests can provide the answer?Oh my goodness I enjoyed One Summer in Tuscany. What I really loved was the whole writing conceit. I enjoyed the pieces coming from the participants in the course that enabled me to see more of their characters and the whole idea of a writing retreat which transported me to the beautiful Italian countryside. There’s the fabulous joke of one hit w [...]

    4. Tuscany and its enrapturing beauty, the strange and sensual atmosphere of an old castle situated in the countryside, nearby Siena, and (bright idea!!) a two weeks teaching session for aspiring authors who just arrived from England (well, for most of them): “One Summer in Tuscany » has everything needed to capture the reader (especially if she -or he- is an aspiring author!).The idea that led to this book is quite original, and I found it really interesting to read this story, to follow the as [...]

    6. One Summer in Tuscany is perfect by-the-pool reading. With its stunning Tuscany location, the interesting characters, the romance and the atmosphere, this is a book best served with a glass of wine on a hot summer’s day. Set in an Italian castle is a writer’s retreat organised by Patricia. It might not be a cheap retreat to get onto, but Patricia is still struggling to keep it afloat, as all the costs are racking up and the interest in the course is running low. She likes to keeps the number [...]

    8. Patricia owns and 18th century home in the Tuscan hills but in order to make it pay she has to let rooms and run courses. This summer she is running a writing course for would be authors and has Jeremy, who once had a bestselling book, running it. Opening up her home is not easy for her as she struggles to make small talk and join in but she has good staff - especially Aldo the chef who's dishes will make your mouth water - and so she can keep in the background as much as possible.The course att [...]

    9. A visit to Tuscany would be amazing in itself but heading to that region of Italy to attend a creative writing course? Well, that would be the dream.No wonder I was immediately taken with Domenica de Rosa’s book, One Summer in Tuscany, which not only features both of those things but also takes place in a rustic-sounding castle (sign me up!).There is much to love about this book even though it’s quite slow to start and, for the sleep addled among us, it’s quite hard getting all the differe [...]

    10. I really enjoyed this book. This is the story of seven aspiring authors on a creative writing course in a beautiful castle high on a hill in Tuscany - I liked the mix of characters, all different ages and backgrounds, all with emotional baggage. I really loved the character of Aldo the chef and would love to be in Tuscany enjoying his food!I enjoyed the descriptions of the beautiful countryside and excursions enjoyed by the writers and the details of the tasks set on the creative writing course [...]

    11. An enjoyable read - beautiful setting, a cast of interesting characters, nothing too traumatic and a happy ending. Sometimes all you need from a book is the equivalent of a hug, a bit of reassurance that good things can happen in the world and a few ideas for your next holiday. The tale revolves around a writers' retreat in Tuscany. The writers range in age and talent providing a series of love interests, personal crises and self discovery. Sit back, pour yourself an Italian white and enjoy!

    12. I picked up this book at the airport feeling nostalgic about Tuscany, and as light as this paperback is, it did the trick! A perfect summer read, whatever that is!

    13. An enjoyable summer read, but I would have enjoyed it more if I hadn't already read it with a different title, I really wish publishers wouldn't do that!
