A wonder-struck art school dropout and a disillusioned Italian bachelor have ten days in Florence to change their lives.
After Samantha dropped out of art school to care for her grandmother, the two spent years planning a trip to Italy together… but now her grandmother is dead, and Samantha is left to pick up the pieces of her own life and dreams. She’ll start with Florence: stay at a charming countryside castle, study all the sculptures… and try not to get distracted by the sculpted jaw of her hosts’ dreamy—but definitely not interested—son.
Edo has come home after six years, summoned to take the reins of the family’s bed & breakfast—a fate he’s dreaded most of his life. He’s not even home a day before his mother is pushing him to play tour guide for their current guest, a pretty girl who seems different from the tourists Edo remembers.
As Florence begins to open Samantha’s heart, she opens Edo’s eyes to the city and home he’d forgotten how to love—but Samantha only has ten days in the country; will that be enough for them to build a future on?
