Read in February, 2011

This book combines two exciting and totally involving stories. The first takes place in the present time and the second in the fourteenth century. The two Giuliettas have many parallels in their lives but live in very different times. The modern Giulietta must find her Romeo to break the curse. Of the twins, she is the idealistic dreamer. I really disliked Janice/Gianozza in the beginning, but she became less self-involved in the end. The author does a great job of keeping the reader off balance with intricate twists and turns in the plot. At times it is difficult to identify the good guys and the bad guys and some good ones turn bad and vice versa. Both the contemporary and historical romances had me enthralled and fascinated. I will never look at the Shakespeare play in the same way again.
