Flashback Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Fiction Fare and Swoony Boys Podcast. In Fiction Fare’s own voice: “The idea for the meme came from discussion between the four of us, and with our friend Liza from WhoRuBlog, about our love for books that came out before we started blogging. We wanted a way to celebrate books that are at least two years old and so Flashback Friday was born! Each week both sites will post our book choices. Everyone is welcome to join in the fun!” You can find out more here.
The Juliet Club by Suzanne Harper
Kate Sanderson inherited her good sense from her mother, a disciplined law professor, and her admiration for the Bard from her father, a passionate Shakespeare scholar. When she gets dumped, out of the blue, for the Practically Perfect Ashley Lawson, she vows never to fall in love again. From now on she will control her own destiny, and every decision she makes will be highly reasoned and rational. She thinks Shakespeare would have approved.
So when she is accepted to a summer Shakespeare symposium in Verona, Italy, Kate sees it as the ideal way to get over her heartbreak once and for all. She’ll lose herself in her studies, explore ancient architecture, and eat plenty of pasta and gelato. (Plus, she’ll be getting college credit for it–another goal accomplished!) But can even completely logical Kate resist the romance of living in a beautiful villa in the city where those star-crossed lovers Romeo and Juliet met and died for each other? Especially when the other Shakespeare Scholars–in particular Giacomo, with his tousled brown hair, expressive dark eyes, and charming ways–try hard to break her protective shell?
“In fair Verona, where we lay our scene . . . “
