Chique Secrets of Dolce Amore.

As a wannabe world traveler, I love reading books that give an insider's look at other countries. Recently I was fortunate to receive an advance copy of Chique Secrets of Dolce Amore,  Barbara Conelli's introduction to the beautiful Italian city of Milan. In an almost ethereal, poetic style, Conelli shares secrets of Milan, including hidden sights that you should not miss, legends and tales that have influenced the city's atmosphere, and foods you must try (including recipes!). Conelli's love of Milan comes through in every sentence as she offers “tales about unexpected encounters with the capricious, unpredictable and extravagant city of Milan, its glamorous feminine secrets, the everyday magic of its dreamy streets, the passionate romance of its elegant hideaways, and the sweet Italian art of delightfully falling in love with your life wherever you go.”
This book is an easy and fun read, giving an intimate look at the city in a way that feels like you're sitting across the table of a bistro with Conelli as she dishes about her home. As of this writing, the Kindle version of Chique Secrets of Dolce Amore is available on Amazon for $2.99; it's also available in paperback. You can find it on Amazon by clicking here.
