The Peacock Room by Merryn Corcoran
About The Book
When Allegra O’Brien discovers her husband’s infidelity, her world is shattered and she seeks solace in the sanctuary family. Her Italian grandpapas’s tales of legendary Mama Cosima and the mysterious Peacock Room reawaken her love of historic, interior architecture, inspiring Allegra to take a trip to Tuscany to learn more about her heritage.
While a dangerous encounter throws her off course, a handsome stranger helps Allegra discover there is more to her family history than she could ever imagine. With her new-found confidence, and in the wake of her grandpapa’s illness, Allegra makes an unexpected discovery, and finally commits to fulfilling the promise she made to solve a family mystery.
Richly laced with the colours and contours of Tuscany, and the kaleidoscopic beauty of Sammezzano Castle, this full-bodied romance will captivate you to the very end.
Let’s be honest, with the magnificent weather we have in Ireland; reading a story with some beautiful landscapes and hot weather will always up your mood, even if it’s just for a little!
Of course, if you know me, a book has to have a little bit of mystery to get my attraction, so the Bella Italia is just a soft part of the story, but I think that with the horrible weather that we are having lately at home, the sun that shined on the novel arrived to me and make me like this book since the first page.
Knowing how a family can keep a deep secret without anyone to notice, I wasn’t surprised that Allegra discovered some dangerous past from her family related to his ill grandfather.
This book will transport you to Italy, but at the same time you’ll feel involved in the search of Allegra; not only her grandfather who disappeared a long time ago, but a search for her true needs and feelings. Because an infidelity is never easy to be over, you will have questions every time you’ll find a new partner… But Allegra is ready to accept what the life will throw her; she is brave, resilient and step by step, she will recover her heart. Will you accompany her to this trip through the history, architecture and discoveries?
Take a chance on the Peacock Room, it will enchant you! 😉
