I am beyond thrilled to help my good friend, Kristin Rae, share the cover for her debut novel, WISH YOU WERE ITALIAN. I remember the day that Kristin and I were book shopping and she told me that she was writing a book. She told me all about Pippa and her adventures in Italy. I asked Kristin if I could read the book once she was finished writing it. I read the manuscript in less than 24 hours and knew that Kristin was meant to be an author! Before we get to the cover Kristin tells us a little about WISH YOU WERE ITALIAN. I would love it if you shared your thoughts!
She befriends a local girl whose gorgeous cousin may be just the Italian Pippa’s looking for, but the road to amore gets detoured when she keeps running into a cute American student. And she can’t forget that her summer abroad is only temporary. As she explores the famous cities of Rome and Pompeii, Pippa must sort out her feelings before her parents figure out where she really is.
“With Italy's brilliant landscapes, a main character you'll love from the first line and a new dreamy book boyfriend (he's mine!), WISH YOU WERE ITALIAN is a charming and addictive read. Devour this delicious treat like a double scoop of gelato.” —Lindsey Leavitt, author of Going Vintage and Sean Griswold’s Head.
Kristin Rae was born and raised in Texas though her accent would suggest otherwise. She’s addicted to books, music, movies, crafty things, and chocolate. A former figure skating coach, LEGO merchandiser, and photographer, she’s now happy to create stories while pretending to ignore the carton of gelato in the freezer. Kristin lives in Houston with her husband and their two boxers.
