Review: Plenty of Fish in the Sicilian Sea by Stefania Hartley

Humorous Romance set in modern-day Sicily

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Serena gets involved with men at the drop of a hat, but they aren’t always what they seem. Roberto, a handsome volunteer at the children’s charity? Enrico, a laid-back colleague, also dedicated to marine biology? Fernando, a consulate official there to help in her moment of need?

Her quest is to protect the marine environment around Sicily, but she’s subconsciously seeking security in that one special relationship as well. Both goals are just out of her grasp. The story races around Sicily, filled with juicy descriptions of the beautiful island, and heart-warming, as well as heart-throbbing, encounters.

I love these evocative, humorous tidbits: “She could be the poster girl for the human body after the resurrection;” “The ailanthus’ fronds swished a windy melody counterpointed by that of the cicadas;” “Used to weaving through Palermo’s traffic in her Vespa, driving even the smallest car felt like running a marathon in an eighteenth-century hoop skirt.” And insert the name of the winning male (no spoilers here!): “—-had always picked up the bits of her that she had dropped along the way.”

I highly recommend this wonderful, entertaining book to lift your spirits and put a smile on your face.
