Book description

Hollywood, 1978

Tragedy sends troubled film star Vivien Lockhart into the arms of Giovanni Moretti—and it seems her fortunes have finally changed. Until she meets his sister and learns that her new husband’s past holds dark secrets…

Tuscany, Present day

Lucy Whittaker needs to disappear. But her new home, the crumbling Castillo Barbarossa, is far from the secluded paradise it seemed. Strange sounds come from the attic. The owner of the house will never meet her in person.

The fountain in the courtyard is silent—but has never run dry.

Across the decades, Vivien and Lucy find themselves trapped in the idyllic Italian villa.

And if they are ever to truly escape its walls, they must first unearth its secrets…

My thoughts
From the first page this book transports you to another place that is both beautiful and intriguing at the same time. The author did a good job of weaving the two stories from the past and present together without them feeling like two complete stories. It made reading the book fun to go back an forth. There was an underlying mystery in this book that you could not wait to figure out. The author did a good job of describing the setting and the house - I could almost feel the darkness  of the Castillo Barbarossa. I thought the characters were well developed. All in all a good book to read on a gloomy day.
