Mark Lamprell's One Summer Day in Rome is an enchanting novel about three couples drawn irresistibly to Rome. Alice, an art student in New York City, has come to Rome in search of adventure and inspiration before settling down with her perfectly adequate fiancé. Meg and Alec, busy parents and successful business people from LA, are on a mission to find the holy grail, a certain blue tile that will make their home renovation complete but soon it becomes clear that their marriage needs a makeover as well. Connie and Lizzie are women of a certain age. They have come from London to scatter the ashes of their beloved husband and brother in the city he adored. Both women are seemingly done with romance, but Rome has other ideas. Brimming with wit and charm (and gelato), One Summer Day in Rome is the most delicious novel you will read this summer"-- Adapted from publisher description.
