Four years after her disastrous quest for romance in Paris (the alleged ‘city of love’), Hedley Derenzie is ready to break out of her comfort zone of singledom and give it another go. She decides to seek professional help — in the form of a psychologist — but after a few sessions on the couch, she has an epiphany — keep paying the psychologist good money … or go to Italy!
Sensibly, Hedley chooses the latter and, within minutes of landing in Milan, meets a man who captures her attention. Soon she’s jetting around the country, dining at fabulous restaurants and living the life of Riley (that’s if Riley were a woman in her late thirties looking for love). So what if this man is older (as in a lot older) and reminds her of her late father? Hedley can’t help but wonder — could he be the one?
Meet Me in Milan is a funny, honest and raw memoir about one woman’s ongoing quest for love — this time in the land of la dolce vita.
Praise for Finding Paris by Hedley Derenzie
‘Hedley Derenzie writes with startling resonance about the rocky road to self-discovery after it dawns on her that she alone is the common denominator in her heartbreaks. A love story told with raw emotion, heart and great optimism.’ —Jacinta Tynan, journalist and author of Mother Zen
