    1. After her mother had a fall and ended up in hospital, Harriet Taylor went home to Australia from London where she’d been living and working as a journalist, prepared to help her on her road to recovery. Harrie didn’t expect to have her mother, whom she’d never been close to, tell her she was worried for a friend in Italy. A skeleton had been found, and Harrie’s mother was convinced it was her friend that she hadn’t heard from in decades.Harrie set off for Positano, on Italy's Amalfi Co [...]


    2. Bravo! What a spectacular story in every sense of the word - as dramatic and as breathtaking as the setting of Positano, on Italy's Amalfi Coast. Rowena Holloway has such a fresh and engaging voice. Her first person narration sweeps you along as the lead character - the feisty and flawed Harrie/Harriette gets herself in and out of all sorts of situations. There is nothing negative to say about this novel. It has action, drama, family relationships, a little bit of hunky Italian flirtation. The b [...]


    3. Rowena Holloway is a master of hook chapter endings. The skeleton of Positano, found in a cave, is what starts Harriet’s journey, but is just one of many threads that tangle together and eventually tie in a satisfying ending. There were plenty of surprises and a very clever twist at the end.The European element gave the story an exotic feel, imbued with rich culture, and immersed in the Italian language, which was skilfully wrought so as not to detract from the story. The love interest, Antoni [...]


    4. A powerful tale of dead secrets that won't stay buried. Harriet Taylor sets out to rebuild her life after a shattering disappointment in her professional and personal lives. Unfortunately, the means she chooses are anything but straightforward and the simple quest for a bracelet discovered with a body decades dead leads her into a labyrinth of deception and a romance that cannot be. Rowena really comes into her own with All That's Left Unsaid. The descriptions are vivid and evocative and the plo [...]


    5. This was a great mystery that kept you guessing to the very end! I was never able to figure out who was lying and who was telling the truth. Everything all came together nicely in the end. The only thing about this book that I thought was odd, was that all the quotes were in single quotes ('), while quotes within the quotes were in double quotes ("). I know this book was written by an Australian author, but I'm not aware of this punctuation difference, although I could be wrong. It's nothing tha [...]


    6. Action packed, with constant twists and turns that kept me guessing until the very endtely looking forward to reading more books by this author!



    7. This was a fabulous, on the edge of your seat read. Loads of gorgeous, beautifully written detail and a fabulous cast of well written characters. What a fabulous writer, you won't be disappointed.



    8. My love for Italy was truly captured and portrayed as the setting for Rowena Holloway's 'All That's Left Unsaid', even down to the language and cuisine. A tale of intrigue with many twists and interesting characters, and a great surprise at the end. But most of all one written with passion and from the heart. It's clear that Rowena Holloway loves Italy as much as I do.


    9. A real page turner , I loved this book . It was the first I had read from Rowena and I will certainly be looking for more. Harriet is a strong character but has been through a tough episode in her life so travelling to Italy to help her mother may seem an easy option but it turns out to be far from relaxing and her life is in danger, as the plot twists and turns while Harriet tries to uncover the mystery of why her mother left Italy so suddenly. A number of interesting characters are included in [...]
