NICKY PELLEGRINO The Secret of Happiness Summer

In the maze of Venice’s canals, bridges and piazzas, one woman challenges herself to find the key to her happiness. Addolorata Martinelli knows she should be happy. She has everything she thought she wanted – her own business, a husband, a child. So why does she feel as if something is missing? When her restaurant, Little Italy, is slated by a reviewer, she realises that she’s lost the one thing she thought she could always count on: her love of food. So Addolorata heads to Venice for a summer alone, aiming to find the ten things that make her happy. Once she’s found them, she’ll construct a new life around her ten things, but will they include her life in London? Nicky Pellegrino works as a journalist and edits a woman’s magazine. She hoards her annual leave so that she and her husband can return to Italy to meet up with her family, eat the best mozzarella and research her books.
