He finally gave up and left the Romano del Mare. leonardo left Italy without any word to anyone. But Stella still found him.

I loved this book. I thoroughly enjoyed this quick, fun, romantic read. I learned about what historical landmarks and renovating old buildings. Also what an owner can go through with these types of properties.  I loved the pace and the plot. I loved leonardo and Stella together. I enjoyed all three books in this series and read them im order as that helped to keep everything straight. But for some reason this was my favorite. I found nothing to criticize in this book. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this book and i highly recommend.
