Who Wants to Visit Lake Como? Book Review with Author Anita Hughes

Lake Como, A Novel

Lake Como, A Novel by Anita Hughes

Recently I had the pleasure of visiting author Anita Hughes at the St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort in Dana Point. She's a fellow St. Martin's Press author, and her books are absolutely delightful — women's escapism at its best. One of my favorite Anita Hughes books — and her most recent — is Lake Como, set high in the Italian Alps (near George Clooney's house, of course).

If you're a Candace Bushnell's Sex and the City fan, you've found a new author to adore.

Anita says: “I enjoyed writing Lake Como. My only words of wisdom are: write the book you want to read. When I envision a story, I think about where I want to spend my days and who I want to be with – then I find a location and create characters I really care about (and they need to have a sense of humor). Writing a book takes a long time and you want to be eager to go back to it every day.”

Having visited Lake Como, I was pleased to find Anita's descriptions of the landscape, customs, and dress absolutely accurate, painting vivid memories in my mind.

Her use of the five senses is so perfect that you'll feel as if you were gazing over the turquoise water of Lake Como, the sun on your shoulders, an Italian aperitif in your hand.

The story revolves around Hallie Elliot, a late twenty-something interior designer from San Francisco with a discerning eye for design and a penchant for designer labels. (I coveted the spectacular wardrobes of Hallie and her sister Portia.) The secrets the family harbors will keep you reading far into the night. An easy summer read, a fun frolic to lift the spirits.
