She's done it again! A.L. Knorr has written a great second book in this series. It is about the next girl in the group of four friends. Saxony has an amazing experience in Italy that will change her life forever. One of the things I love about this author is how she makes the unbelievable very believable. I loved the first book very much. I started the second book as soon as I could doubting it could be as good. It was every bit as good, only different. I really can't wait to read a book about the third friend's summer.
Welcome to the secret world of fire magi, where what doesn't kill you (literally) makes you stronger. Saxony Cagney counts herself lucky when she wins a position as an au pair in Venice for the summer. It's her responsibility to take care of two young boys - speak to them in English, make sure they get to their swimming lessons on time. Piece of cake, right? She unexpectedly forms a strong bond with the youngest, Isaia, although its a mystery why. She also meets two Italian men... both are smart, successful, sexy. So far things are going her way. Who doesn't like options? When she discovers that Isaia is actually dying, and his mom is trying to keep it a secret from his dad, things get a violent shove into complicated...and then contagious. She'll never be the same again. Just when she's got more on her plate than she can handle, she accidentally gets tangled up with the most powerful crime family in Venice.
