A Portrait of Emily Price is a book full of passion, great food and loving family
Until recently I had not heard of Katherine Reay. She has been around for a while now and has written a number of books. A Portrait of Emily Price is her newest book and it is getting critical acclaim. I was able to get a review copy and here is what I thought of it.
You can read the plot for A Portrait of Emily Price here:
Art restorer Emily Price has never encountered anything she can’t fix—until she meets Ben, an Italian chef, who seems just right. When Emily follows Ben home to Italy, she learns that his family, however, is another matter . . .
I really liked A Portrait of Emily Price. It does start a bit slow but once it got going I had a hard time putting it down. The whirlwind romance was a surprise yet it is the catalyst that really helped this tale move along. Once this event happened it was not always clear what was going to happen next, but you can bet I wanted to find out. The book may seem a tad long sometimes but it is definitely worth the read. You can learn more about A Portrait of Emily Price on this website.
A Portrait of Emily Price deserves 8/10. This was a fun read and told a pretty good story. The characters are what make this book enjoyable to read. The different quirks displayed by Ben’s family members are funny and yet they bring tons of heart too. What I liked most about this novel though is how many of the characters grow and change as the story progresses. Once the story was over I was satisfied with how it all ended.
