Rome in Love by Anita Hughes

St. Martin's Press has one copy for a lucky US reader!

When Amelia Tate is cast to play the Audrey Hepburn role in a remake of Roman Holiday, she feels as if all her dreams have come true. She has a handsome boyfriend, is portraying her idol in a major motion picture, and gets to live in beautiful, Italian city of Rome for the next two months.


Once there, she befriends a young woman named Sophie with whom she begins to explore the city. Together, they discover all the amazing riches that Rome has to offer. But when Amelia's boyfriend breaks up with her over her acting career, her perfect world begins to crumble.

While moping in her hotel suite, Amelia discovers a stack of letters written by Audrey Hepburn that start to put her own life into perspective. Then, she meets Philip, a handsome journalist who is under the impression that she is a hotel maid, and it appears as if things are finally looking up. The problem is she can never find the right time to tell Philip her true identity. Not to mention that Philip has a few secrets of his own. Can Amelia finally have both the career and love that she's always wanted, or will she be forced to choose again?

With her sensory descriptions of the beautiful sites, decadent food, and high fashion of Rome, Hughes draws readers into this fast-paced and superbly written novel.
Rome in Love will capture the hearts of readers everywhere. (Synopsis courtesy of Amazon.)

Audrey was an amazing woman, so it's difficult to pick one movie. I do love Breakfast at Tiffany's, though.

I'm a fan of "My Fair Lady" partly because my elderly DAD introduced me to the film. I've never asked him why he's so fond of it. He has no interest in any other musicals and in general prefers action flicks over other genres.
