Summary: Four girls. One magical, and possibly dangerous Italian summer. Family mysteries, ancient castles, long hot nights of dancing under the stars . . . and, of course, plenty of gorgeous Italian boys!

Review: Flirting in Italian is a book that I desperately wanted to like. Sadly, this book didn't meet my expectations at all and fell rather short.

I think my main problem with this book is that the story had no real direction. I wanted the mystery of the book totally and completely solved. I guess I didn't realize this was a series Violet got on my nerves the whole time. She grew on me after awhile but I found her to be more than a bit boy obsessed and quite the partier, which made me shake my head quite a bit. And all the boys the blurb boasts about? They weren't all that great.

I'm still very curious about the mystery and that was brought up during Flirting in Italian. It's probably the only thing that would make me read a sequel.

Flirting in Italian is a fun read but I found it to be lacking quite a bit.

I couldn't even finish it! I loved the cover and the premise and, hey, it's Italy but...meh. Hate when that happens. Hope your next read is better! Cheers!
