Charlie’s world comes crashing down when her fiancé leaves her for another woman. Then Aunt Della wins a trip for two to Rome. Maybe Italy can cure her broken heart? Charlie and Aunt Della board the tour bus in Rome and meet a fun and diverse group of travelers. Rocco, the tour guide, is particularly attractive. Charlie isn’t the only one who thinks so. The bus driver, Tony, is also her age. They become friends and explore sites together. Charlie quickly falls in love with Italy. Who needs romance when you have Rome, Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast? But with adventure comes danger in the ancient ruins of Pompeii. Charlie wanders from the group and is mugged. She chases the thief who stole her purse into the far reaches of the ruins. Lost and alone, Charlie finds courage she never knew she had. Physical courage is one thing, but will she risk falling in love again? Anything’s possible in The Italian Cure.
