Chantal Panetta's family has been with odds with the Calarcos for generations and that isn't going away anytime soon....until Isabella Panetta falls in love with Orlando Calarco. Chantal tries to stop Issy but to no avail. In fact she finds herself falling for Orlando's big brother Dante. Mr. Calarco however threatens to disown both boys and Dante fears it will be much worse than that. True love stops for no man though and Issy and Orlando elope, while Dante and Chantal fight their feelings for each other.
This is a 4.5⭐️ because
1: This is the 3rd book in the Land of Shining Waters series. All 3 have been amazing books once I got into them. Unfortunately it has taken 5 or 6 chapters with each of the 3.
2: That being said, I love this book. I enjoyed trying to interpret the scattered Italian using my French basics since they are similar. I love how Tracie Peterson always incorporates her characters background into her stories!
3: I still cant believe that Chantal fell asleep before she could sneak out of the hotel!
4: Nonna Barbato and Nonna Panetta were friends in Italy!!! Ahhh... I love it.
5: I was so glad when Chantal and Dante finally came to their senses and I was glad that Issy and Orlando made it to the wedding!!
