Description

Jake Entwhistle is smart and handsome, but living with a shadow over his romantic history. Janet Rossi is a bright, witty aide to the governor of Massachusetts, but Janet suffers from an illness that makes her, as she puts it, “not exactly a good long-term investment.” After meeting by accident late one night, they begin a love affair filled with humor, startling intimacy, and a deep, abiding connection.

Praise For A Little Love Story

“Thoughtful, restrained (yet very sexy). . . . Merullo captures what it feels like when you meet ‘the one’–and what you’re willing to do to hold onto that person.” –The New York Times“Moving and beautifully paced, this is the tale of an enlightened carpenter and a charismatic woman living with a body that’s betraying her. A teary modern saga you won’t forget.” –People “Merullo does a gorgeous job of rendering naked emotion; it’s never slobbery, just frank. Jake and Janet are so believable and appealing . . . you are sucked right into Jake’s desperation.” –The Boston Globe“A wonderful story of love and death, pain and courage, and loss and redemption that leaves the reader believing that . . . real love and human connection are still possible in the 21st century.” –The Bloomsbury Review
