Book Summary 

When writer Paul Stewart heads to the idyllic Italian town of Montalcino to finish his already late book, it seems like the perfect escape from stressful city life. Upon landing however, things quickly take a turn for the worse when he discovers his hired car is nowhere to be found. With no record of any reservation and no other cars available, it looks like Paul is stuck at the airport. That is, until an enterprising stranger offers him an unexpected alternative. While there may be no cars available there is something else on offer a bulldozer. With little choice in the matter, Paul accepts and so begins a series of laugh out loud adventures moving, quite literally, through the Tuscan countryside in the wake of Paul and his Italian Bulldozer.

MY REVIEW

A MUST BUY MUST READ

Alexander McCall Smith is one of the world’s most prolific and most popular authors. My Italian Bulldozer is a story that is characteristic of Alexander McCall Smith’s gift for imagining the unexpected circumstance, this stand alone novel is based on a hugely popular short story. It is a warmly comic holiday read, guaranteed to put smiles on faces.
I am a real fan of Alexander McCall Smith books .I can just imagine so well what the character would like and the place the characters are at because he has a gift of describing details so well making any reader really enjoy every page.
My Italian Bulldozer is about Paul Stewart whose girlfriend Becky, leaves him after four years of living together. Becky left him for her Mr universe, who is her personal trainer, who she met in the gym. Paul is who is writing a book about Tuscan Wine and Cuisine is very friendly with his editor Gloria. A mix up leaves Paul in an Italian police cell. Is Paul Stewart just a man who writes stuff about food and wine and who drives a bulldozer or can he fall in love again? The balance of this book with Contemporary/crime and laugh out loud moments has everything a reader can possible want. I highly recommend buying it.
