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. . . .
