"Full of delicious secrets, sleeping potions,
medieval wedding rituals, curses, the glorious Italian countryside
and sibling rivalries, Juliet is at heart an epic romance that proves
love is strong enough to conquer even death."

When Julie Jacobs inherits a key to a safety deposit box in Siena, Italy, she is told it will lead her to an old family treasure. Soon she is launched on a precarious journey into the true history of her ancestor Giulietta, whose legendary love for a young man named Romeo turned medieval Siena upside down. As Julie crosses paths with the descendants of the families involved in Shakespeare's unforgettable blood feud, she begins to realize that the notorious curse – "A plague on both your houses!" – is still at work, and that she is the next target. It seems the only one who can save her from her fate is Romeo… but where is he?
Most of the books I read and love are of the paranormal genre but I can't resist a good love story full of "Double, double, toil and trouble."
The author, Anne Fortier grew up in Denmark and immigrated to the U.S in 2002 but now lives in Quebec, Canada! I hope to have this novel finished soon at which point I'll post a review. I hope to love this book!
