Julie and Romeo by Jeanne Ray is a delightful novel revolving around two sixty-something adults, Julie Roseman and Romeo Cacciamani, both owning rival flower shops in Boston. Like the Montagues and the Capulets in the Shakespeare play which provides inspiration for this tale, their families have always been enemies. But after Romeo becomes a widower and Julie divorced from her super-charged, omnipresent erstwhile business partner-husband, they cautiously but resolutely enter into a relationship that spawns all sorts of family havoc. This is a hilarious, warm and satisfying story and is testimony to how love comes in strange ways to people of all ages. ~ Reviewed by Barbara Morrow
