Publisher's Description

Art restorer Emily Price has never encountered anything she can’t fix—until she meets Ben, an Italian chef, who seems just right. But when Emily follows Ben home to Italy, she learns that his family is another matter . . .

Emily Price—fix-it girl extraordinaire and would-be artist—dreams of having a gallery show of her own. There is no time for distractions, especially not the ultimate distraction of falling in love.

But Chef Benito Vassallo’s relentless pursuit proves hard to resist. Visiting from Italy, Ben works to breathe new life into his aunt and uncle’s faded restaurant, Piccollo. Soon after their first meeting, he works to win Emily as well—inviting her into his world and into his heart.

Emily astonishes everyone when she accepts Ben’s proposal and follows him home. But instead of allowing the land, culture, and people of Monterello to transform her, Emily interferes with everyone and everything around her, alienating Ben’s tightly knit family. Only Ben’s father, Lucio, gives Emily the understanding she needs to lay down her guard. Soon, Emily’s life and art begin to blossom, and Italy’s beauty and rhythm take hold of her spirit.

Yet when she unearths long-buried family secrets, Emily wonders if she really fits into Ben’s world. Will the joys of Italy become just a memory, or will Emily share in the freedom and grace that her life with Ben has shown her are possible?

Editorial Reviews

'Reay’s sensually evocative descriptions of Italian food and scenery makes this a delight for fans of Frances Mayes’s Under the Tuscan Sun. The author of The Brontë Plot writes novels that speak to the universal truths in the human heart, and her latest will appeal to readers of new adult fiction with its focus on the power of following a dream.'
'Another rich, multi-layered story from Katherine Reay. Fabulously described settings will make readers long to visit Italy . . . This is a lovely tale that will nest in the reader’s heart and won’t let go.'

    " . . you can feel just that alive every day - as long as you don't forget."

    Emily Price earns a living fixing things, from vintage espresso machines to priceless works of art. When she meets her employer's brother; an handsome, nearly-larger-than-life Italian chef Benito Vassallo, she may have unknowingly given her heart to a man whose family fractures run too deep to restore. For in trying, she might lose what she never wants to replace.

    Enjoy this fine story by Katherine Reay, which is as beautifully written as a masterpiece is painted.

    Looking for a fluffy romance set in Italy? Head elsewhere. Looking for a story about the true messiness of life, love, and family? Then stop right here, A Portrait Of Emily Price will be the perfect read for you.

    This is the third Katherine Reay book that I've read, and believe me, it comes close to tying with Dear Mr. Knightley as my favorite. It is a beautiful, poignant, and sometimes bittersweet story of a young woman learning about love, life, and about family. She has a lot to learn about what makes people act and react the way that they do and at times I saw shades of myself in Emily and not always flattering ones. With each page I found myself totally immersed in her story, and even more, her journey into being the person she was meant to be and towards the love and family she's always wanted.

    A Portrait Of Emily Price was a simply wonderful read. One that I actually finished much faster than I thought possible because I just couldn't seem to put it down. Katherine Reay has a definite must-read and a real winner in this lovely American-Italian romance!

    (I received a copy of this book from the publisher. All opinions are entirely my own.)

    A Portrait of Emily Price by Katherine Reay was a nice, slow comfort read. Like Reay's other books, this one had quite a few literary references along with several interesting facts about art restoration and rich scenes of Italy. The story follows art restorer and master of all fixing-upper, Emily Price on a journey of self-realization as she falls in love and learns how to deal with her family, both her sister and her in-laws. The characters were very real and warm- or cold, in the case of the mother-in-law, who was one of my favorite characters- and all very alive as they interacted with each other. I was especially interested in the mystery that had torn several family members away from each other, and the way it unfolded. This story is a must-read for anyone looking for something a bit slower paced and a bit foodie.

    I received a copy of this book for free through the Fiction Guild. I was not required to post a positive review and the views and opinions expressed are my own.

    Rich. Decadent. Meant to be savored. A profoundly beautiful story! Reay brings the complexities of human relationship to life with such intriguing emotion!

    A head-over-heels whirlwind romance anchors the story even as it sends the characters into a tailspin of discovery. As an art restorer, Emily spends her days painstakingly uncovering damaged layers to reveal the truth hidden beneath. Meeting Ben becomes the catalyst for discovering real life truths hidden beneath layers of pain and loss. Such an interesting career/life parallel brilliantly delivered through the author's exquisite word choice. There were times I just had to stop and sit with a scene a spell.

    Best book quote ever comes from Papa Lucio who has a penchant for selecting books to teach a lesson. "Literature teaches us empathy." (p.245) And that's exactly what this story does on so many levels. High recommended.

    After a whirlwind courtship (one week) Emily marries Ben, who is visiting from Italy. The following statement from the back cover of the book made me think twice about wanting to read A Portrait of Emily Price : "Emily interferes with everyone and everything around her, alienating Ben's tightly knit family." Family conflict is not what I enjoy reading in a book; but, this book was well written, kept my interest, and was thoroughly enjoying.
