Mexericos namoriscar e escrever o livro das suas vidas Em pouco tempo Mary a solteira convicta descobre os encantos de partilhar uma Vespa; o sedutor Jeremy rende se a talentos ue não apenas os seus e até a pragmática Patricia vai arranjar tempo para uma paixão acident. I ve enjoyed reading Elly Griffiths crime books and discovered somewhere along the way that this was a pseudonym of Domenica De Rosa De Rosa s books looked rather girly and chick lit like and not really my kind of thing When I spotted one in the library though I picked it up to have a look and ended up absorbed by it The Summer School of the title is a fortnight long writing workshop taking place in a renovated castle in Tuscany The characters seemed a bit stereotypical to start with but most of them broke enough boundaries that they seemed like real enough people It is all a little predictable and I guessed where several of the storylines were going but that didn t really matter There were a few things that didn t seem uite right for example a character who only seemed to be remembered once every 100 pages I think there is something a bit odd about reading about a writers workshop it made me want to rewrite parts of this book That s not something I usually think about On the whole though a decent piece of light entertainment and I ll uite possibly read at some point in the future

Summer School has been republished in 2017 as One Summer in Tuscany Set in the idyllic Tuscan hills Patricia Wilson s 18th century home earns its keep or tries to by playing host to guests on a residential creative writing course The two week course includes tuition from author Jeremy Bullen and features sightseeing trips into Rome and Florence as well as the chance to explore the local landscape For the guests it is a chance to hone their writing skills and to have their writing critiued by a well known author however for Patricia facing the worry of bankruptcy it is make or break time for her business Add into the euation a rebellious and moody teenage son and her Tuscan idyll doesn t sound uite so perfectIf the idea of a writing retreat sounds inviting the diverse mix of guests and the conflict of personalities could scupper the chance of a relaxing time Not everybody gets along alliances are formed and there are hopes of romantic attachments With guests ranging from a young female yummy mummy who is confident that she has written the next best seller to an elderly spinster who has spent the best part of 30 years writing her crime novel and who has no expectations of it ever being published the tutor Jeremy begins to despair of seeing a half decent novel or idea from many of his pupils He was once and it was only the once a best selling author however in the 20 years since then he has written nothing else and lives off his previous claim to fameThis is a very easy read and that is meant as a compliment It is written with a lighter touch however as the story progresses we learn about the lives of the characters and their hopes and dreams and there are a few surprises along the way For my own personal tastes I would have liked to have seen a little depth to the characters but it was still very enjoyable The descriptions of the surrounding landscape and countryside are captivating whilst the food prepared by Aldo the chef will make your mouth waterOver the course of the 2 weeks the guests spent their time sightseeing relaxing by the pool eating and sleeping during the hot afternoons There doesn t seem to be an awful lot of writing going on but by the time they return home however they will have learnt a lot about themselves Some will realise that their dream of publication is just that a dream whilst others will have had a life changing experienceOne Summer in Tuscany would make for a perfect summery read with a glass of something chilled at hand
