    One thought on “The Place We Met”

    1. I really felt in the need for something light to read, and this novel by Isabelle Broom fit the bill. Taggie and Lucy are women for whom Lake Como in Italy holds a special place in their heart, they spent time there as children. Taggie has returned to live there, a friend of her grandmother's, Elsie lives in Bellagio with her three little dogs, all named after her husbands! Taggie has found employment at the Casa Alto hotel, organising and leading tourist trips around the area. Lucy is a nurse, [...]

    2. The beautiful, evocative settings in this novel are the highlight for me. The author obviously knows the area around Lake Como in Italy very well and brings it all to light in the readers’ imagination with her superb descriptions as we explore the area with the two female leading characters, Taggie and Lucy, both of whom have returned to the area which they’d loved as children though with very different reasons.Wanting to escape from heartbreak and tragedy, Taggie has gone to visit her famil [...]

    3. The place we met is the 3rd Isabelle Broom book I have read, and it's safe to say I'm a fan. Her books are always set in beautiful landscapes and tell an intertwined story.The place we met is set in Italy and tells the story of two women. Taggie has moved to Lake Como and works in a hotel. She organises and runs events for the hotel guests. She isn't looking for Prince Charming but keeps playing the role of the damsel. Marco is a tall handsome Italian man. He plays Taggie's rescuer whether she l [...]

    4. Lake Como at around Christmas and the New Year is the setting for this book. The story alternates between two rather different women, and my feelings towards both of them changed regularly as the story progressed. I did though find the book felt a bit slow to start, and it took for the two stories to merge to really hold my attention at which point I really did want to know what was going to happen next. Taggie is working as a tour guide in her beloved Lake Como having escaped misery back in Eng [...]

    5. Taggie, Pete and Lucy can’t imagine how a stay at Lake Como can affect their lives.Oh my heavens I enjoyed The Place We Met. I thought it was absolutely wonderful. Even when the emotions the characters feel are negative ones I experienced sheer joy in reading The Place We Met. It had everything I adore in fiction, from a setting so vivid it feels as if I’m actually there, through wonderfully depicted characters that are living, breathing humans, to a narrative that draws in the reader so tho [...]

    6. My favourite Isabelle Broom book yet! Her characters are so well drawn they feel familiar and human and the twist half-way is just brilliant - as is the setting. Take me to Como!

    7. In Isabelle Broom's newest release "The Place We Met" we are introduced to two main characters. Taggie works as a tour guide in Lake Como after escaping London and a heart - break.

The two, at first sight, different women that don't know each other do share something in common and they don't know that their lives are going to change soon. I, of course, loved the setting of Lake Como at ar [...]

Taggie is over in Italy working for a hotel and Lucy is on holiday with her new boyfriend, Pete.When I read the synopsis of this book, I so wanted to read it!

An author that is high up my list of favourite authors. If you haven't read a book by her yet. I highly recommend. Simply wond [...]

    16. Isabelle Broom has an amazing talent for 'setting the scene' of her novels. In this one the reader is transported to beautiful Lake Como. I thought the characters were very well drawn and I liked the way that the story unfolded and revealed the connections between them. A lovely, light, romantic read but with a tinge of sadness too!

    17. As soon as I saw that this book was set in Italy, I knew I had to read it. Through books I have fallen in love with Italy; the stunning Lake Como is now one of it’s places I must see, thanks to Broom’s wonderful writing and descriptions. I must admit this is only the second of this author’s books I’ve read (along with A Year and a Day) I have the two summery ones sat at home, so I promise to get round to reading them when the weather improves.The Place We Met weaves together two women’ [...]

    18. Emotional and atmospheric.Starting at a slow burn this dual narrative quickly turns into a gripping story that is impossible to put down with its clever twists and turns as we enter the world of the two protagonists Taggie and Lucy. In alternative chapters told from first person view points the separate but inextricably linked lives of the two women unravel in the beautifully described Lake Como.We see the two grapple with the emotional damage they have suffered in the past as they try to come t [...]

    20. I’m so pleased that I was sent an ARC of this book by Netgalley in return for an honest review. On reading it I also breathed a massive sigh of relief. Isabelle Broom’s novel, “A Year and a Day” made me a huge fan, I thought for life. But I was so disappointed in her next one “Then, Now and Always”, with, to me, it’s daft story line and immature heroine. I was almost afraid to try this one. I needn’t have worried. This talented author is right back on track again I loved everythi [...]

    21. Lucy has suffered her fair share of bad men but now she is with Pete, her perfect man. Finally, Lucy has a man that is worth going to her favourite place with, Lake Como.

She has come out of a relationship but with whom not apparent until near the end. Marco takes a fancy to her and she plans to plough money from her flat sale, into his new business.Lucy is a nurse working in a busy A & E department in London.

    23. what a fantatsic read, this is my second book by this author and i have been left feeling so happy. she writes with the readers following her and feels like you are there in the spotlight and thats what makes her brilliant. The setting is out of this world in Lake Como, Italy for the whole of the festival time of year this christmas and new year. It took me a little longer than normal to get 'into' the book but once i was there, it was flowing quickly so stick with it because the stories are mer [...]

    24. Normally when a book grabs me, its the, or the characters themselves.  In this particular novel, it wasn't initially either of these.  It was the setting.  The way in which Bloom describes Lake Como, Italy, made me fall in love with a place I have never been.  I have always wanted to visit Italy, it's something that is most definitely on my bucket list, and I know that when (when not if) I go, I'll be taking this story with me.Now, I can't say the plot & its ending surprised me. On the c [...]

    25. The Place We Met by Isabelle Broom is a wonderful contemporary novel about love, life and loss. It is a compulsive read. With comprehensive descriptions, the reader 'experiences' the heat and delights of Italy's Lake Como at Christmas and New Year.Life is a series of meetings and partings. Some partings are harder than others but we cannot wallow in our hurtful past. "There can be no going back, so I have no choice but to move forwards." Neither can we live in our childhood memories. No matter h [...]

    26. I chose to read this book based on the location in which it was set. Based on this criterion, it did not disappoint.At times, especially in the first half of the book, I found it to be a bit slow. However, the descriptions of the Lake Como area kept me reading. Now that I have finished the story, I can appreciate the slow way in which the characters were developed.There is a level of predictability to the story, especially during the second half of the novel. Although there are a few unexpected [...]

    27. The Place We Met is set both in London and Lake Como, with our main protagonists Agatha and Lucy, finding centre stage within the beautiful landscapes of Como. Broom's work transports you to the Italian delights, the reader feels like they are walking alongside the characters. A tale woven with love, loss and heartbreak it was one I couldn't put down. Broom highlights that we are all the makers of our own destiny as long as we stay true to ourselves. I thoroughly enjoyed The Place We Met a heart [...]

    28. A beautifully written book that takes you from the bustle of London to the shores of Lake Como.
