Book of the Week: Solo Honeymoon by Lisa Worrall #Review

Author: Lisa Worrall
Book: Solo Honeymoon
Publisher: White Stiletto Press 
Publication date: June 13, 2016
Length: 89 pages


Leo Barratt hadn't written his bucket list, but he was pretty sure there were several things he wouldn't have put on it. Like... waking up to a Dear John letter from his fiance, Eric, the day before their wedding... or going on his honeymoon - alone.

But, under the strict instructions of his mother, he found himself in Venice at Bauta, the beautiful bed and breakfast where he'd supposed to have started off married life. Instead, he planned to spend three weeks inside his room and wait for the pain to go away.

Or at least that's what he thought...

Bauta, was run by Matteo Leghissa and his mother, Luana. Used to getting his own way, Matteo refused to allow Leo to wallow in self-pity and appointed himself as Leo's official guide.

Apparently, falling in love with a beautiful stranger wasn't on Leo's bucket list either but.....


Oh I loved this book. I mean, who doesn’t adore an unexpected love story. Poor Leo is stood up at the altar (pretty much) but takes his honeymoon alone anyway… ONLY to find the love of his life! *sigh* Yeah… I swooned!

Mateo is A-MAZ-ING! Truly. His backstory broke my heart. Like I SOBBED uncontrollably for a good 10 minutes. But even HE gets a happily ever after. Two broken, sad men who save each other.

Lisa Worrall wrote wonderful characters. The setting was gorgeous and her descriptive writing really pulled me into the story. Like I was really in Venice. Don’t get me started on the food. I was shaking with hunger through this story. Then I made lasagna.

Lisa is such a versatile writer. Whether she’s writing murder mystery, or beautiful romance she masters it beautifully.

This is a fairytale of sorts and I enjoyed being swept away in the whirlwind
