Nicky Pellegrino Events in Auckland

Nicky Pellegrino’s new book, Under Italian Skies is out 12 April and to celebrate Nicky will be speaking at some fabulous events in Auckland.

About Under Italian Skies
Stella has life under control – and that’s the way she likes it. For twenty-five years, she’s been trusted assistant to a legendary fashion designer, but after her boss dies suddenly, she’s left with nothing to do but clear the studio.
It seems as though the life she wanted has vanished – until one day she finds a house swap website and sees a beautiful, old villa in a southern Italian village. Could she really exchange her poky London flat for that?
What was intended as just a break becomes much more and Stella finds herself trying on a stranger’s life. As the villa begins to get under her skin, she can’t help but imagine the owner from the clues around her.
She meets his friends, cooks the food he recommends and follows suggestions to visit his favourite places. But can an idea of someone ever match up to the reality? As Stella wonders if she can let go of the safety of her past, perhaps there’s a chance for her to find a way into her future.

I haven't read Under Italian Skies yet but Annie read it over the past two nights and had this to say:
"Loved this; beautifully drawn characters, a great story, well told. I'm ready for a sequel Nicky!".
It will be one of my Easter reads.Can't wait.
