Christmas in Venice (or The Italian's Christmas Bride) by Joanne Walsh

Christmas in Venice - Joanne Walsh

***copy provided by publisher through NetGalley***

After five years, exes, Ashlynne and Lorenzo, meet again at the Marco Polo airport. Due to weather conditions, she cannot return home, so he offers her shelter in his apartment. They soon discover that the passion and attraction are still there, but so are old insecurities that helped their marriage to implode.

Formulaic, predictable and with a very Harlequin-Silhouette feel, with an insecure heroine that believes and trusts the words of a stranger over the words of the man she supposedly loves, a bland hero that still merits sainthood for putting up with the idiot woman, a lukewarm at best romance and as sugary as possible ending.
