The Fragment of Dreams (2011)

In the sequel to The Book of Love, Lily and William are planning their new life together in Rome when Poppy, Lily's sister, discovers a letter sent to their deceased mother from a lady she later learns is her aunt. The letter leads to the two sisters locating an uncle and cousin living in Sydney that they never knew existed. Before William's departure to Rome, he and Lily visit her newly found uncle where William discovers a fragment of a valuable Italian frieze. Worth $4-5 million, William advises Stephen to arrange some insurance and a safety deposit box for the frieze. As William is about to depart at the airport, Lily's cousin Andy rushes in and accuses William of poisoning his father and stealing the frieze. Who should Lily believe? The man she loves or the cousin she is keen to get to know. In order to discover the truth for herself, Lily travels to Naples where more family secrets are uncovered. This was another enjoyable read which had me keen to read on, solve the crime and see whether romance would prevail. (LM)

What follows is an enjoyable adventure complete with a few twists, which take William and Lily from Australia to Italy in search of Robbie and the book. (LM)
