My Review:

Under A Sicilian Sky by Lisa Hobman was a fun, adventurous, emotional journey with a bit of mystery thrown in.  I so enjoyed traveling with the famous actress, Ruby as she tried to outrun the paparazzi after a social media hack destroyed her reputation.  

Ruby Locke, a famous actress finds out her social media accounts were hacked, and now her once adoring fans have turned on her as they believe she posted vile comments on her accounts.  On the advice of her agent, she goes to Sicily to a home of a friend of a friend, in order to let the uproar of her unpopularity die down.  Then her fiance, Tyler Harrison, a Hollywood heartthrob, breaks their engagement, making her even more unpopular.  While in Sicily, Ruby meets her landlord and a mysterious neighbor that interests her.  

When the publicity fails to die down and gets worse, she escapes again to a quaint village on the remote Isle of Sky, in Scotland.  

This book is a real page-turner.  I kept going so I can find out who and how Ruby’s social media accounts were hacked.  I enjoyed the locations, both Sicily and Isle of Sky, and the author’s descriptions of these picturesque locations were vivid and realistic and allowed me to escape and feel as if I was there with the characters.  

This book gave us quirky characters and a couple of adorable dogs too! It’s fun, light and an enjoyable read. 

I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.

  1. The cover screams summer/beach read! Sounds like a fun journey and I like that there’s a bit of mystery and cute dogs! Can never resist cute animals in a story! Fab review!

  2. This sounds like a fun summer read as well as one for this armchair traveller. I made it to Scotland, but not the Isle of Skye. It must be so hard to have a normal life when you are famous or well known.
