Christian authors Marion Ueckermann, Elizabeth Maddrey, Alexa Verde, Clare Revell, Heather Gray, Narelle Atkins, and Autumn Macarthur got together to create a series of books about the Rossi family in Italy. The individual books released last year, and I reviewed one of them here.
Now, all nine books have been combined into a set on Kindle with a bonus tenth novella telling the rest of Isabella Rossi’s story. Being as I have not read (or purchased) all the books in the series, I am going to grab a set for myself now. Currently, it is only $.99, which is such a great deal!

Family, faith, forgiveness... and love. Enjoy a summer journey to Italy with A Tuscan Legacy!
When Isabella Rossi invites each of her adult grandchildren to her estate in the Tuscan hills for her eightieth birthday, she hopes to reunite a family fractured by distance, death, and secrets.
The birthday gift of a painting, arriving unsigned and with no sender's details, rips open old heartbreak. One family secret has already been revealed, her youngest son Albertino's illegitimate English daughter. Now it seems there could be yet more secrets.
Returning home, the cousins, scattered across three continents, each discover their lifetime love. When they gather again at the villa as summer ends, the remaining secrets are revealed. But can they be forgiven, or will the mistakes of the past be repeated?
All nine of the original stories are included, plus a bonus tenth novella set the following year!

BONUS NEW NOVELLA! Book 10 Innamorata (Sweetheart) by Autumn Macarthur
Is eighty-one too old for romance? When a beau from her teens returns to Tuscany, widowed Isabella Rossi is about to find out!
I received a complimentary copy of this book. This gift did not influence my opinion or review.
Also in this series: La Risposta: The Answer
Innamorata by Autumn MacArthur was a lovely novella! Those who have read any of the books of the series will have already fallen in love with Isabella. When Gianni appears on his motorcycle, she is reminded of the past when he recklessly set out to conquer the world.
I enjoy seeing romance between older characters. The fact that Isabella and Gianni had loved each other as teenagers allowed this story to move quickly naturally. Gianni’ had carried his guilt of events in his past for decades and it was so sweet that Isabella was able to help point him to God’s grace.
