"Jeanne Ray's" New York Times "bestselling debut," Julie and Romeo, "introduced two unforgettable star-crossed lovers whose feuding families threatened to foil their romance. Now Julie and Romeo are back -- and this time Lady Luck is throwing a few curveballs their way. . . ."
Julie Roseman and Romeo Cacciamani know a thing or two about good fortune. For generations, their families were rival florists and bitter enemies. Then Julie and Romeo met by chance, just as each became single again, and they fell in love. Three years later, Julie and Romeo are still blissfully happy, but with their respective houses packed to the rafters with family, the odds of their ever getting a moment of peace together seem as likely as winning the lottery.
They get their wish -- with a twist -- when an injury puts Romeo flat on his back. Now Julie has to figure out how to run two flower shops, take care of an ever-expanding household, tackle her granddaughter's fixation with lottery tickets, keep her daughters from regressing into full-scale teenage bickering, "and" nurse her beloved Romeo back to health. And Lady Luck has one more surprise in store. . . .
Julie Roseman, a divorcee, and Romeo Cacciamani, a widower, own rival flower shops in Boston. They don't know what started the family feud, but neither have they ever questioned it. But then they meet at a business conference and fall in love.
From the author of JULIE AND ROMEO, a warm and witty family romance. The novel opens as Caroline, a local dance teacher, sits down to dinner with her husband, Tom, and the telephone rings twice in quick succession: first with the weeping of her daughter, Shaye, and secondly with the rather more ominous sound of her distraught sister, Taffy. It turns out that Shaye is weeping because she has just been proposed to (by a man of whom Caroline and Tom don't wholly approve), while Taffy is weeping because her husband has just left her. Divorce, marriage, love and fidelity are the themes of this heartwarming family romance. At its core is the solid foundation of Caroline's long marriage to Tom and her desire to see everyone around her happy. As is often the case, it takes several twists and turns to resolve the many repercussions of both announcements involving family gatherings, preparations for the wedding - and quite a lot of dance.
Based on that most timeless of love stories, Julie and Romeo is wonderfully humorous novel of love, family feuds and disapproving parents - with a twist 'For never was a story of more woe, than this of Juliet and her Romeo' Shakespeare might have seen his young star-cross'd lovers as a tragic pair, but 400 years later Jeanne Ray's Julie and Romeo are light-hearted, funny and sixty-something. Julie Roseman, a divorcee, and Romeo Cacciamani, a widower, own rival flower shops in Boston. They don't know what started the family feud generations before, but they have never questioned it. Until the fateful day when they meet at a business conference and inexplicably find themselves falling in love. But the path of true love never did run smooth, and with Romeo's feisty mother and a pack of fierce children coming between them, it looks like Julie and Romeo's tale will not end happily - or will it?
'A slice of cake never made anybody fat. You don't each the whole cake. You don't eat a cake every day of your life. A cake is a party, a birthday, a wedding.
