EXCERPT / Chapter One – Part 3

Pretending she hadn’t heard her cousin, she kept moving in the opposite direction. Her steps were sure and quick. She forced herself to hold her head high though the guilt of her actions weighed on her.

She told herself she just needed a little time to settle in and get her bearings. Once she found the right words and was able to say them without feeling like an utter failure, she’d be able to face her rich, beautiful and successful cousin, who had her life totally together, including her pick of successful men. Why couldn’t she be more like her? More congenial? More beautiful? More whatever it was that made every man that met Carla immediately fall in love with her?

But none of that mattered anymore. Gianna was done with men. She’d lost herself in one too many relationships—dismissing what was important to her to make them happy—and she wasn’t going to let that happen again.

Outside of the village, Gianna lowered her head. She promised herself that she’d make this up to her cousin. With her gaze focused on the ruts that constituted a road, she continued trudging down the desolate lane that was surrounded by lush vegetation and trees. The suitcase’s little wheels rolled over the gravel, making a terrible racket. When a wheel got stuck, which happened repeatedly, she gave it a forceful yank.

At the end of the lane was her home; the stately pale pink villa with white trim and a terracotta roof that she’d inherited from her grandmother. Its beauty was timeless. It sat upon a hillside, providing a stunning view of Lake Como.

And what the villa lacked in modern style, it made up for with rustic charm. With seven bedrooms and five bathrooms, it was far too large for one person. And yet Gianna couldn’t imagine parting with it. Just like her grandmother, she loved it here.

Woof. Woof.

A medium-sized dog with short light tan fur emerged from the bushes. It rushed into the lane, blocking her.

It stopped.

Gianna stopped. Now what?
