Sometimes a girl needs a Roman Holiday...
Cat Connelly plays it safe. She's an accountant with no debt who lives near her family in Manhattan. She's also thirty-four, unmarried, and with nothing promising on her romantic horizon. After a humiliating incident at her sister's wedding, she throws caution to the wind and flies off to Rome to find Francesco, the man she'd fallen in love with thirteen years earlier on a trip to Italy.
...and sometimes she just needs to roam.
When Francesco turns out to be a dud, Cat is adrift on the streets of Rome, no safety net in sight. With the help of an eccentric waitress with a spare apartment to rent, the handsome restaurateur who calls her Princess Ann, and the family secrets only Rome can unlock for her, Cat discovers that happiness can be found on the back of a speeding Vespa...but only if you're willing to take a few risks.
