Christmas In Venice by Meadow Taylor (66)

Olivia's Christmas trip to Venice, Italy, should be a holiday dream come true. But when her unattended luggage becomes the focus of a handsome Italian policeman’s bomb investigation, she worries she won't even make it out of the Marco Polo Airport. Practically handcuffed to the best-looking man she’s ever seen, can Olivia convince him she isn’t a terrorist before he writes her off for good? Christmas in Venice is the perfect little treat to start the holidays off with a smile.
(This short story is adapted from the first chapter of Meadow Taylor’s newest full-length novel, Midnight in Venice, available now.)

REVIEW:
So sweet!
I'm glad Alessandro gave Olivia his number at the end, geez, I was thinking they would walk away from each other with no look back. After the moment they had filled with all that chemistry, there was no denying they needed to get together. Well, that did not happen, but a number is a start.
I did get a laugh from this short story though. In was funny in ways I least expected. Which was good!
Can't wait to read, Midnight In Venice. This sounds like a perfect romance series for me and my tastes!! Not only do I get the sweetness of watching people fall in love, but what a better setting than in Italy!

4/5

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.



Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…
