Valentine’s Day in Venice
Lucy Landish has put a decade into her career, but a heartbreaking divorce and a mother whose medical needs are growing increasingly demanding have driven her to chase her dream south—way south—to Amelia Island, Florida. Dreaming of a fresh start, Lucy hangs out a shingle and opens The Holiday Adventure Club with plans to travel the world for a year, hitting a new location for every major holiday with her groups of intrepid tourists in tow.
The crew that signs up to spend Valentine’s Day in Venice during Carnival includes a young widow with a promise to fulfill to her late husband, and a couple of randy, cantankerous septuagenarians. But in the midst of the historical city and all the color and drama of Carnival, Lucy finds herself missing Amelia Island and the two men who are vying for her attention back home: Dev, the darkly handsome music-lover who owns the coffee shop on one side of her office, and Nick, the ruggedly good-looking mystery writer who runs the postal store on the other.
But is thirty-eight too old for a woman to reinvent herself from the ground up? Can Lucy discover herself again in the cities of the world, find a new career that brings her joy, and possibly even fall in love again?
