Elizabeth has wanted two things her entire life - an Italian husband and lots of rosy-cheeked bambini to keep her happy and fulfilled. The first is ticked off, thanks to handsome Roberto, the second is proving a little harder to achieve... But when Roberto loses his job and decides to leave London for Italy and the family business, Elizabeth hopes the different climate might lift her hormone levels and boost her chances of conceiving. Except she hasn't counted on a wily mother-in-law nor the language barrier - nor, for that matter, the cracks in her marriage that seem to be growing deeper by the day. Does she want a baby at any cost? And why is she suddenly craving the company of a sexy American tutor? The grappa must have gone to her head because this is no Roman holiday - but when the Italian sun starts to shine things start to look brighter... just not quite in the way Elizabeth expected.
