I have thoroughly enjoyed this series the three books are all real page turners, fast paced, moving the emotion flows off the pages and Belle is such a fabulous character with all that she has been through she gets her HEA and so beautifully, but of course not without some more adventure in this book, I had a fabulous trip to Tuscany and can highly recommend it.

Belle and Andre are living in the farmhouse in country Tuscany these days and planning their wedding but Belle has been through a tough time and still feels the need to stay away from big crowds after Paris, while spending time in the yard she notices the big pepper tree is not growing like it should and while digging discovers a box buried below the roots, this box opens up a Pandora’s box filled with mystery and Belle is determined to get to the bottom of it.

This box is linked to the disappearance of a child thirty five years ago at the medieval spring fair and it is just about time for the fair again, Belle does a lot of investigating with Riley’s help, along the way there are new friends to be made and suspects to investigate, all the time she should be doing things for her wedding. This does not sit well with Andre who worries so much about her, but as we have come to learn Belle can be stubborn and determined.

This is a beautifully written story one that will pull you in from the start, solving the mystery opens up a lot of pain for some people and this causes more worry, but this book finishes this series off so beautifully, this series is one that I highly recommend to anyone who loves a good story that has characters that come to life on the pages, fabulous settings that take the reader away and a book that will leave the reader very happy at the end. Thank MS Montebello for another fantastic story I loved it and this is one that will stay with me for a long time to come and I look forward to many mores books. 

5/5 stars for a fabulous story
