    "Summer's Lease" was the first John Mortimer book that I ever read and it transported me to Tuscany then- and it does so every time that I've read it since. The film version manages to capture much of the magic of the book in a story about a slightly dysfunctional family vacationing in a somehow sinister, rental villa in Tuscany. Summer's Lease is well up there on my richer scale of books enjoyed, I have read it many times and will do so again and again. It has been my companion on many holidays in Italy. The plot is a little thin, which has its benefits in allowing the characters to develope and to be enjoyed as they gell into the story line providing many situations /5(33).
