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.
JULIE AND ROMEO is nurse Jeanne Ray's first novel. The plot is uncomplicated and the ending fairly predictable, perhaps even too pat, so it's not a heavyweight in the genre. But, it is charming, humorous, cute and even a bit clever. As an author's first offering, it's more than commendable - and Jeanne, if she sticks with writing, can only improve.
There are two features of this book which made it notable for me. First, Julie and Romeo are both aged sixty. It's refreshing to read a storyline wherein amour and heavy breathing aren't limited to the under-30 set. (Bravo, Ms. Ray, for reminding us of that.) Second, the volume is a quick read. For someone like myself with too many books and too little time, that's a big plus!
