I cannot say enough good things about this book. I won it from Chick Lit Central and a few years ago. Thank you Melissa Amster! This is one of the greatest stories to read this summer. It is definitely worth your time!
Julie and Janice Jacobs are going home to deal with the death of their Aunt Rose. The will is read and Janice gets the house and everything in it. Julie gets a key with a plane ticket to go to Italy. Her mission is to find out what her mother wanted her to know about the past and a possible treasure. Julie Jacobs becomes Giulietta Tolemeis which is her given name. Part of her search is to search for Romeo and all the people that are connected to the story. Julie picks up a box that includes a story about the real Romeo and Juliet. What was there story? How can the current Romeo and Juliet break the curse placed on the houses of Tolemeis and Salimbeni? Will there be a happy ending?
I listened to this book and it is narrated by Cassandra Campbell. She did an excellent job. I couldn’t wait to get a chance to listen again each day. I don’t know that I would have found the same enjoyment by reading the book. The story has an interesting plot. Every time the reader thinks they know what will happen next another layer of the story is revealed. The genres from this story include fiction, romance, historical fiction, and mystery. It keeps you guessing till the end.
You too will want your Romeo!
