Juliet O Juliet, wherefore art thou Juliet?

I am so on a freakin ROLL here.  Another terrific debut novel, Juliet is so fantastically fun!  A little historical fiction, a little Dan Brown, a little Shakespearean romance – this book has it all.  It begins when Great Aunt Rose dies and leaves her fortune to Janice, and nothing but a key to a safety deposit box in Sienna, Italy to her twin sister Juliet.  Juliet is left with instruction to go to Sienna to find out the secret of her families past, and the location of a mysteries treasure that her mother was researching when she died.

As the adventure begins, Juliet finds that she is the direct descendent of Shakespeare’s Juliet and begins to read in letters the real story of the famous Romeo and Juliet.  Through the letters Juliet begins to piece together the past and the present, and how events that took place 600 years prior are still alive and well in Sienna.

I thought this book was a really fun read.  If you like historical fiction mixed in with a little romance and adventure I think you will definitely enjoy Juliet.  Ciao!
