Dating da Vinci
Ramona Elise Griffen is thirty six years old and a widow of two boys. Ramona teaches English. Ramona was preparing for her class like any other time when he walked in. His name is Leonardo da Vinci. He is Italian like the other Leonardo but that is where the similarities end. Leonardo is a college student and he recently moved to Austin, Texas. Ramona takes Leonardo in as her houseguest. Soon after Ramona and Leonardo develop feelings for each other. Ramona starts viewing the sites and smells of Texas in a whole new light with Leonardo’s help
I thought Dating da Vinci by Malena Lott was a great upbeat and refreshing novel. Here Leonardo was a guy who could barely speak English and knew very little about America; yet he was teaching Ramona how to let go and live again through the power of friendship and love. This Leonardo may not be the famous artist we all know but Ramona’s Leonardo was a painter in his own way. He could paint you a picture and so you the good in everything and everybody. Ramona could have just given up when her husband passed away but instead she stayed strong for her sons as well as for herself. Marlena Lott is a first time author for me. She did a wonderful job with this book. I will read another book by Marlena again.
