A Year at Hotel Gondola

The Top 10 bestseller - a woman swaps her far-flung travels for her biggest adventure yet: a relationship

Kat has never wanted to live a small, everyday sort of life. She's a food writer who travels the world visiting far-flung places and eating unusual fare. Now she is about to embark on her biggest adventure yet - a relationship. She has fallen in love with an Italian man and is moving to live with him in Venice where she will help him run his small guesthouse, Hotel Gondola. Kat has lined up a book deal and will write about the first year of her new adventure: the food she eats, the recipes she collects, the people she meets, the man she doesn't really know all that well but is going to make a life with...

Still, as Kat ought to know by now, the whole point of adventures is they never go exactly the way you expect them to.

Author

Nicky Pellegrino

Nicky Pellegrino is a Number 1 bestselling author and has written ten fabulous novels. Her inspiration comes from her Italian heritage. When her Italian father came to England he fell in love with and married a Liverpool girl. He brought to his new family his passion for food and instilled in them what all Italians know - that you live to eat instead of eating to live. This Italian mantra is the inspiration behind Nicky's delicious novels. Every summer the family left their home in Merseyside and returned to her father's home town, near Naples, in southern Italy. When Nicky met and married a New Zealander she moved to Auckland where she works as a journalist and edits a women's magazine. She hoards her annual leave so that she and her husband can return to Italy to meet up with her family and to eat the best mozzarella and research her books.
