Secrets on the Italian Island by T. A. Williams – Publication Day Blog Tour

Thank you to Rachel at for organising this publication day push and to T.A. Williams and Canelo for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.


Her work has got in the way of relationships before – but never like this

Anna’s job as a geologist takes her all over the world, including to the beautiful island of Elba, where she’s sent to look for precious metals. And the island isn’t the only thing that’s gorgeous – she can’t believe her luck when she meets windsurfer Marco and sparks fly.

But Anna must keep her role on Elba a secret to avoid upsetting the locals, which means lying to Marco even as they grow closer. When her old friend Toby visits, Anna suddenly finds herself torn between the attentions of the two men. However, Anna’s not the only one keeping secrets.

Is Marco being entirely honest with her? And why did Toby really come to visit?

A fun and escapist romance, perfect for fans of Lucy Coleman and Alex Brown.

My Thoughts

When I see a new T. A. Williams book is coming I now have very high expectations, and he never disappoints.  The plot is always fresh and new and the settings are simply divine meaning that I can never wait to dive in.

Williams has this amazing ability to breathe life into a setting that I have usually only read about or seen on the TV.  I can see, breath and smell every bit of the surroundings and I am there.  The Island of Elba is so beautifully and vividly described and it’s a place that I never knew existed before reading this book.  I have perfect imagery of it now and I know if I ever get to visit, it will feel familiar. 

Anna is such a sweet character and I loved how she relaxed and got into ‘holiday mode’ with a little more of a mischievous side.  I found the knowledge about her job fascinating too.  I adored the love triangle aspect and spent time weighing up Marco and Toby and trying to decide who she would choose.  

Additional characters add a further dimension to the plot and I love how their relationships and interactions develop throughout the book. 

This is a great Summer read with a stunning setting and perfect for escaping away from everyday life for a few hours. 

Author Bio – T. A. Williams

I’m a man. And a pretty old man as well. I did languages at university a long time ago and then lived and worked in France and Switzerland before going to Italy for seven years as a teacher of English. My Italian wife and I then came back to the UK with our little daughter (now long-since grown up) where I ran a big English language school for many years. We now live in a sleepy little village in Devonshire. I’ve been writing almost all my life but it was only seven years ago that I finally managed to find a publisher who liked my work enough to offer me my first contract.

The fact that I am now writing romantic comedy is something I still find hard to explain. My early books were thrillers and historical novels. Maybe it’s because there are so many horrible things happening in the world today that I feel I need to do my best to provide something to cheer my readers up. My books provide escapism to some gorgeous locations, even if travel to them is currently difficult.
