A Christmas Cannoli Kiss by Anne Armistead is a sweet, contemporary romance with an amazing cast of characters. I loved them all. Our heroine, Isabella, is a spitfire with a strong sense of family loyalty. She is someone you want to be your book bestie, but she has a dynamite crew of her own. Her posse reunites for Jen’s wedding, but I loved the interactions between all the women. Armistead has a gift for displaying friendship and camaraderie in a true-to-life way. From Isabella’s relationship to the aging Uncle Sal and Aunt Angie to her relationship with Bestie Beth’s twin daughters (delightful hellions), the author excels in showing Isabella’s giving heart rather than telling us about it.
However, my favorite character in the book is the city of Pittsburgh. From the food to the landmarks, I was transported back to the Italian district. I love this area of Pittsburgh, especially at Christmas time, and Armistead captured the magic unique to this city. I could picture Fontana’s bakery wedged between the historic shops and restaurants. I got to travel to one of my favorite places without leaving my home.
I highly recommend this romance for a romantic escape to the Italian district with a group of friends so realistic; you would think they are sitting beside you.
