I really liked this book. I felt like I was actually there. Even if it was a bit predictable, I enjoyed reading it a lot. The characters were interesting and well-written. If you like Italian history with a bit of romance, definitely read this.

A bit of a predictable plot. I like the context but I feel this book could have been way more exciting and a little less political.

I liked the book because it is about Siena and I loved the detail about the city, The Palio race, and the surroundings. Maybe I like the descriptions because I have been to Siena. But I agree with a previous review, the plot is predictable.

A sweet read with a cute romance. Although I felt as though the author wanted to tell me more about the scenery than the story. What I really enjoyed was the richness that the use of horses added to this book.

Historical romance with a dash of intrigue. The beautiful setting and the descriptions of the Palio kept me reading but most of the plot twists are extremely formulaic and very predictable.
