Opening Sentence of the Day: Meet me in Venice

Ana Yuan, a plain young woman in a summery blue dress and sandals, never felt even a hint of danger when she boarded the double-decker train from Shanghai to Suzhou on the borders of the Tailhu Lake.

-- Meet Me in Venice by Elizabeth Adler.

I recently read Alder's Invitation to Provence and enjoyed it for the pure entertainment of it. This one caught my eye because I had just put together my list of Venice books.

It is light and fluffy, but that is just what I need right now.


  1. Armchair traveler that I am, I'd love to read this book!

  2. It is definitely armchair travel. So far, the story has gone back and forth between Paris and Shanghai, with some time in Nice. I think the Venice part comes later.

  3. I so admire that you read books that I would never, ever dream to pick up because then my reading world is expanded and I'm enlightened for the better. Thanks for having such a broad view of literary treasures.
