She looked so beaten and exhausted as she lifted her bag that he almost offered to help her with it. But there was something in her eyes that didn't invite an approach and in the end he let her walk off without saying a word, her big belly sticking out in front of her as she made her way uncomfortably down the street.
I really enjoyed this book. I was a little concerned when I picked it off the shelf because of the deal I got on it, but was pleasantly surprised once I started reading. I like the romantic novels and this fit right into my category. I also liked the fact that it takes place in Italy. The book spans over a few years but it easy to follow and I could see everything taking place in my mind. I recommend this book.
