Suddenly One Summer
The literal story is a tale of adolescent sexual awakening, set in the very well-appointed home of an academic, on the Italian Riviera, in the mids. Elio, the precocious year-old son of the esteemed and open-minded scholar and his wife, falls fast and hard for Oliver, a year-old postdoc teaching at Columbia, who has come to the mansion for six weeks to revise his manuscript — on Heraclitus, since this is a novel about time and love — before publication. Which is also, of course, to say: I am not in Italy now, I am not that young man, what I am going to describe is long over.

I thought Ms. From the New York Times bestselling author of It Happened One Wedding comes a novel about a man and a woman whose summer is about to get very, very steamy…. Divorce lawyer Victoria Slade has seen enough unhappy endings to swear off marriage forever. Investigative journalist Ford Dixon is bent on finding the man who got his sister pregnant and left her high and dry.
Still, the more time he spends with Victoria, the more he realizes that the one woman as skeptical about love as he is might be the only woman he could really fall for….
