Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

*Starred Review* As it turns out, fate just couldn’t be content with sticking Roland Penhallow in Tuscany for a boring, yearlong sabbatical with his brother, the Duke of Wallingford, and his brother’s friend, Phineas Burke. It also had to throw Roland’s first love, Elizabeth, into the mix. Now married to the vindictive Count of Somerton, Elizabeth hopes that by putting enough distance between herself and her husband, she can keep custody of her young son, Philip, but her plan depends on living quietly with her cousin, Alexandra Morley, in the castle they rented in Tuscany. Any hint of scandal would give Elizabeth’s husband the leverage he needs to take Philip away. Unfortunately, the castle is double-booked, and Roland and his friends simply refuse to seek new quarters elsewhere. Now Elizabeth must do everything in her power to resist resuming her romance with Roland from where they left it six years earlier. In the second delectable addition to her elevated historical trilogy, which began with a Shakespeare-oriented A Lady Never Lies (2012), Gray pays tribute this time to composer Verdi while again dazzling readers with scintillating wit, lusciously layered characters, and sizzling, sensual romance, proving she truly is the newest incandescent star in the romance firmament. --John Charles

Great characters, dialogs, story lines.

I won't give away any details but there were two scenes in particular that were in the first book that you get in the 2nd but from a different character's perspective.

She pulls the reader into a lush world of deep sensibilities and madcap yearning.

Juliana Gray has happily proven that lightning can strike twice. I enjoyed this book as much if not more than the first book in her trilogy. The relationship/romance between Roland and Lilibet was a sweet one. (Never fear, for those that want it, there was a good dose of sensuality as well) Their love for each other was never something that was in doubt, but how they get to a HEA is a good little journey to take. Roland may just be one of my favorite heroes in recent history. He comes initially comes off as the stereotypical rake but he is so much more. How could any woman resist a guy with such a wickedly fun sense of humor? I was concerned initially that Lilibet would be like how she was initially portrayed (perfect in her manner, never emotional) but she proved to be a woman of deep passions. Her fierce protectiveness of her son made her even more appealing. (by the way, her son was adorable)

Some of the scenes do overlap with what was in the first book. However, HOW they overlapped was fantastic. I won't give away any details but there were two scenes in particular that were in the first book that you get in the 2nd but from a different character's perspective. The result is hilarious given what that character was doing and how you already know what the others had been thinking (man, did they ever get played). The resolution to the book was a bit far-fetched to me (in regards to the over-arching story of the castle and Roland's work) but I don't read these books for their realism. If you liked Ms Gray's first book, I think it's safe to say you'll really enjoy the 2nd. I recommend reading these in order. I cannot wait for Wallingford and Abigail. From what I've learned from both of them in these first two books, it should be a rollicking good time. Only 3 months to go...

I really loved the first of this clever series, but I believe I'm starting to tire of series, because I didn't think this book was as good as the first. This author cleverly staged three ladies and three gentlemen thrown (seemingly by coincidence) together and allowed the reader to watch the romances begin.

This is the second couple we meet and their circumstances are very different from the first couple - but somehow not quite as charming. The character development was less impressive and the plot had a lot of ambiguities.

Somehow when the heroine is married, albeit unhappily, with a vulnerable child, and begins an affair with a first love, it doesn't have the ingredients of a good, emotionally satisfying romance - at least to me. And, as for children in romance books - I admit that I'm never excited to read about them because so few authors portray them realistically. In this case, Philip was a bit too precocious. That is not to say I didn't enjoy watching Roland (our hero) squirm while trying to establish a working relationship with him, because I did. But Philip himself seemed too contrived - and instead of enjoying him, he distracted me.

I did like the Hero - very much. He was my favorite part of the book, even though the Heroine was not bad. The Villain, on the other hand, confused me. I thought his actions were a bit ambiguous and vague - and I wasn't totally satisfied with the resolution, even if it did seem to be a happy ever after.

None of these quibbles should keep you from reading the book, because overall it was still an enjoyable read. I was expecting the same pleasure I derived from the first book - and that didn't happen. I'd really like to say 3.5 stars, but I'll opt for 4 because the writing is very good.

Juliana Grey most definitely became my favorite writer! Her two books are outstanding. Great characters, dialogs, story lines. Her writing is full of humor, romance and poetry. I really enjoyed them tremendously.

Juliana Gray has used an interesting concept for her trilogy. In the late 19th century, a group of three English women and a group of three English men are both duped into signing a lease on a Tuscan castle for a year. They try to inhabit separate wings of the castle and coexist. Three romances develop. Each of the books so far follows one couple, but often the same scenes occur, only from a different point of view. Hints of ancient curses pop up and possible ghosts push the action along.

The story demands a light touch -- a well done aspect of the first novel. This one doesn't seem to be able to pick a tone and stick to it. Lots of angst is involved. The hero and heroine tumble into the hay (literally) at practically first sight (they knew each other years ago) and then must spend most of the novel trying to keep apart since she is married and the mother of a young son--and she will be unable to obtain a divorce from her rotten, cheating husband if she is found to be likewise unfaithful.

When the ending arrives (SPOILERS AHEAD), so does the vile husband. He is quite evil and hopes to kill the hero. His wife has seen him do depraved and unspeakable things (although the worst are not described). And yet, they come to a civilized agreement about divorce. The boy will be sent to live with his father part of the year. Excuse me? Did I hear that right? The wife also glosses over the sins of the man who kept the young lovers apart and pushed her into her unhappy marriage.

Perhaps I'm expecting the tale to make too much sense, or perhaps a woman named Lilibet sounds to me like she should live near Florence, Alabama instead of Florence, Italy. At any rate, the third entry sounds as if it will return to the frothy, light-hearted style of the first book. I'm looking forward to that one.
