Taylor, Finn and their ten year old daughter, Snow, are invited by Mike and Lizzie to go to Italy with them. Lizzie and Finn had a relationship before either of the couples were married. Taylor is an overprotective, unrealistic mother, and Mike and Lizzie do not have children and have no idea how to relate to them. This Italian vacations has all the makings of a disaster, which is exactly what happens when the five travelers arrive in Siracusa.
Told from each adult’s point of view, Siracusa is a good summer read-easy, interesting and, at times, a page turner.
