On the precipice of her sixteenth birthday, the last thing lone wolf Cat Crawford wants is an extravagant gala thrown by her bubbly stepmother and well-meaning father. So even though Cat knows the family’s trip to Florence, Italy, is a peace offering, she embraces the magical city and all it offers. But when her curiosity leads her to an unusual gypsy tent, she exits . . . right into Renaissance Firenze.
Thrust into the sixteenth century armed with only a backpack full of contraband future items, Cat joins up with her ancestors, the sweet Alessandra and protective Cipriano, and soon falls for the gorgeous aspiring artist Lorenzo. But when the much-older Niccolo starts sniffing around, Cat realizes that an unwanted birthday party is nothing compared to an unwanted suitor full of creeptastic amore.
Can she find her way back to modern times before her Italian adventure turns into an Italian forever?
Alright, why am I looking forward to this book? One because it is about Italy, my absolutele favourite country (at least to go on holidays). And when Italy is combined with its older version of the Renaissance, it is an absolutely go for me. I have read more books that are about time travelling that goes back to the old Italy and I love each and every one of them, so I can't wait to add this one to the read list.
Besides that, Rachel Harris is cool as well. Right now as promotion for her debut book she is doing what is called 'The Flirt Squad'. You can read about it here. As part of the squad you can win prizes and every month she is introducing an author with exclusive previews and cool goodies to win as well. You can join the flirt squad or just the current contests about Cindi Madsen, who is the first author in the spotlight. If you join, it would be really great if you can mention my name (as it provides me with points).
