This is a perfect romance novel with travel notes

Where does The Island Hideaway rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Very high in the category of interesting novels with a background in Italy.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Eleanor because she is realistically interesting and a unique character.

What about Antonia Beamish’s performance did you like?

I liked the soft resonance of her voice. I liked that she did not "overact" the various voices when reading dialogue. She is talented.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Quite a few, actually. I liked Eleanor's initial encounter with Franny. I liked the scene on the hydropo boat over to Siciliy with Lewis. Moments with Natalie, the nymphet were thoroughly believable and well-characterized.

Any additional comments?

This book made me happy, engaged and not wanting it to end. I also greatly appreciated that the author did not "wrap it all up" with a traditional ending. It was a very good and happy-making read. The descriptions of the islands were priceless.
