Yes there are loads of these books around, but having just read 'Head over Heel' by Chris Harrison I can honestly say its the best one I've read yet. The quotes that state inside the book about 'laugh out loud' moments are true (as Mr Teapot can vouch for, as I woke him up countless times by laughing loudly). A great insight into life in Southern Italy (Puglia, Calabria, Sicily and also further north into Milan, not forgetting Dublin in Ireland too). Not your typical 'I moved to Italy and grew my own veggies' type of book at all - it is Highly Recommended! :D

Great, sixty of you (so far) have viewed this - hope you get a copy of this book and read it - it really is good. Surely some of you have read it already?

Great news! Let me know if you both enjoy it - I am sure you will. Its so good I'm reading it again (as there was so much to take in). Not often I've re-started a book straight away.

Enjoy! Report back.
