An Italian Adventure (The Italian Saga 1) by Gaia B. Amman – Review by Natalie Hanley

An Italian Adventure (The Italian Saga, #1)An Italian Adventure by Gaia B. Amman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

An Italian Adventure is the first book in the Italian Saga by Gaia B Amman. It is an enchanting story that catches you from the first page. It has fabulous characterisation and lovely storytelling. I felt transported to Italy and could almost feel the sun on my face.
Leda is a tomboy who has 2 close male friends, then bad boy Nico arrives from Sicily and 3 become 4. Their adventures start with the discovery of an adult magazine on the eve of their first communion and go from strength to strength.
I loved the way the main characters went from hating each other to looking out for each other. It was a touching relationship which I enjoyed watching develop.
I also liked the comparison between this and her relationship with older sister Viola. The family dynamic was interesting and well-written. The smattering of Italian phrases was a lovely touch for a linguist like myself.
I would give this book a 4/5 as I enjoyed it and would recommend to fans of all things Italian.
