Dreaming of Venice by T.A.Williams

4 Star

Find love, friendship and prosecco – in the magical city of Venice
Life is tough for Penny. A dead end job in a London café, a boyfriend in Australia (what could go wrong?) and an art career going nowhere. But then Penny is approached with an extraordinary proposition.

It isn’t going to be easy but, if she can pull it off, she will turn her life around and at long last see the fulfilment of her dream – to visit Venice. And, just maybe, find true happiness with the handsome man of her dreams.

But can dreams come true?

Kathryn - 4 Star

A fantastic tale of rags to riches this novel will swoop you away in a story of romance and friendship.  I zipped through this book and was enchanted by the characters, as I have come to expect from T.A.Williams.

Penny is a realistically drawn character for her profession- it’s not an easy life being an undiscovered artist and she’s just putting one step in front of the other until she’s “discovered” by Caroline when she rescues a baby on a train platform and ends up in the news.  Caroline approaches her to play her employer’s double (for reasons unknown at first) which seems a bit peculiar but the perks are hard to turn down!  Penny gradually makes some headway in her career and her financial situation as she plays the double more and more often.  And then she gets to chance to go to Venice ….which upped the charm and romance factor considerably for me.  I don’t want to give anything  away so I shall restrain myself on the details. 

Typical of Williams, the characters are realistic and possess enough charisma to be engaging but aren’t bogged in so much “development” that the plot lags.  He moves quickly and naturally through the action and his novels are humorous and heart-felt and always include a loveable dog.
