Julie Roseman and Romeo Cacciamani have a lot in common, they both own their own florist shop, they both have children, grandchildren, and they both own their own homes. In fact, Romeo’s son is married to Julie’s daughter and they live with Julie. Romeo also has a full house, his elderly mother lives at his house, along with his son and daughter-in-law.

They are frustrated of the lack of privacy in either house; they just want to have some alone time together. When an accident lands Romeo flat on his back in Julie’s bed, they figure this is great, finally some alone time, boy were they wrong on that one! They have even less time together, everyone wants to see Romeo and see how he is doing.

They also have to contend with Sarah, Julie’s eight-year-old granddaughter, she is addicted to Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, and she watches it every day, sometimes several times a day. She also thinks she will win the lottery. Everyone buys her one dollar tickets thinking nobody knows.

When you have this cast of characters and their personalities there is bound to be some heated moments, there are also some very funny moments in this book. I will never think of guppies and blowfish the same way again.

If you read the authors previous books, you should read this one as well. You will not be disappointed. I was laughing out loud throughout the book. There were also times I felt bad for the characters. This is a great book. I highly recommend Julie and Romeo Get Lucky.
