FALLING IN LOVE (2015)
Falling in Love by Donna Leon
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Coming full circle, Falling in Love features opera singer Flavia Petrelli who appeared in book one of this twenty-four book series. What readers appreciate in Donna Leon's series is the character of Commissario Guido Brunetti and his relationship with his family, colleagues, and Venice.
Flavia is back in Venice to sing the lead role in Tosca but someone is sending her flowers. Too many flowers. That have shown up in too many places.
I don't know much about opera but I do understand performing and a bit about singing so I found the story engaging.
An earlier review of another title in the series, A Sea of Troubles (2001) was also lukewarm.
