New from the author of House of Daughters - an irresistible confection of love, loss, and Italian sweets in the delectable tradition of Chocolat

Corporate star Lily Turner abandons the boardrooms of Manhattan for the steep streets of Montevedova when she discovers her "perfect" husband, Daniel, has another family tucked away in the hills of Tuscany. Once there, her plight attracts the attention of the Secret League of Widowed Darners, an all-but-invisible army pulling strings behind the scenes to create happy endings. Soon founding members, Violetta and Luciana, are scheming to mend Lily's broken heart-and to enlist her help for their struggling pasticceria.

With the lush landscape of a sumptuous Tuscan summer in the background, and the tantalizing scent of fresh-baked cantucci in the air, Dolci di Love is the joyful celebration of a modern recipe for life.

you have to love the ladies of Secret League of Widowed Darners!

A patron review from the Adult Summer Reading Game: "Dolci di Love is an irresistible confection about love, loss and Italian sweets. Lynch has a way of writing that can make you smile one minute and be angry the next. Corporate star Lily Turner abandons her Manhattan life to seek out the secret life her husband Daniel is leading in the hills of Tuscany. Aided by the Secret League of Widowed Darners, they strive to mend Lily's broken heart. I loved this novel! It transported me on an Italian literature vacation, complete with handsome locals, delectable nibbles and beautiful countryside."
