 I am totally excited about this trip.  I have my suitcase packed, and I'm ready to go.

I chose a city where love and romance is always in the air. I yearned for spectacular shopping and a place where the  people are warm at heart.

I love shopping for those one of a kind things.  At this market, everything is handmade, no two items looking exactly the same.

The Gondola is the most romantic place of all.  Traveling up and down the 170 boat canals to choose from, the gondola provides the perfect place for lovers to share sweet nothings, while exploring the country.

Famous people have lived and also traveled down these canals.  Playwright - Giacomo Casanove, Explorer - Marco Polo and Composer - Antonio Vivaldi. 

My favorite part of the cruise was sitting on the top deck of the boat reading from my kindle.  Nothing like the gorgeous  Venice Italy sun warming up my heart and soul.


The sudden death of her husband sends Nikki Petrino into a tailspin. Three years later, she's still grieving. Mexico seems the perfect retreat to finish her novel.   Musician Drake Dente needs to get back on track and an excursion to Mexico to work on lyrics for his comeback CD is just what he needs.   Can two ships passing in the night bound for Mexico become the love they both need and want? Attraction sizzles and misunderstandings threaten. When Nikki goes missing can Drake find her before it's too late?
