Julie Roseman and Romeo Cacciamani know a thing or two about good fortune. For generations, their families were rival florists and bitter enemies. Then Julie and Romeo met by chance, just as each became single again. Even more miraculous, they fell in love.

Three years later, Julie and Romeo are still blissfully happy. They don’t often get a quiet moment alone, and rarely manage a night—quiet or otherwise—in the same bed, but Julie feels blessed by what they do have: true love, wonderful jobs, and houses packed to the rafters with family. Romeo’s ninety-three-year-old mother, his son Alan, Alan’s wife and their three children live with him; Julie’s daughter Sandy and her family—including Sandy’s Willy Wonka-obsessed daughter, Sarah, and their cat—live with her. The odds of Julie and Romeo getting a few days of peace together seem about as likely as winning the lottery.

But their wish comes true—with a twist—when an injury puts Romeo flat on his back in Julie’s room. Spending days in bed may sound heavenly, but with Romeo on pain pills, initially as comatose as Juliet in her tomb, the reality is less romantic. Then Julie’s other daughter, Nora, drops her own crisis on her mother’s doorstep. Now Julie has to figure out how to run two flower shops, take care of an ever-expanding household, nurse her beloved Romeo back to health, tackle Sarah’s fixation with lottery tickets, and keep her daughters from regressing into full-scale teenage bickering. And Lady Luck has one more surprise in store…

Wonderfully witty and unerringly wise, Julie and Romeo Get Lucky is a smart, heartwarming story of timeless love and family loyalty, and a reminder that if you suddenly get everything you ever wished for, the only thing to do is live happily ever after.

    " I thought I would like this more than I did. Dangit Julie---you two folks have got to grow up!!! I needed her to take control of her life in these books. Her romance with Romeo lost some of its charm as they seem caught in a never-ending teenage romance. I need more. Grow up, kick out the kids, be happy. The End. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julie | 2/11/2014

    " Another hit by Jeanne Ray. This is another delightful and fun read, something of an "after the sunset" look at their loves. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristine | 1/18/2014

    " What a fun book! I just love Jeanne Ray's writing style--she is one of those "suck you into it" authors. I do wish I had read "Julie and Romeo" first, though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jean | 1/17/2014

    " A silly little modern day fairy tale. Jeanne Ray has such a way of creating a house full of tumult and chaos with quirky family members. A fun fast read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leslie Van Sickel | 1/16/2014

    " Not as good as the first book, but a fast mindless read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erin | 1/15/2014

    " I gave this book four starts because it was engaging and a quick read; I like those kinds of books. The book itself was kinda cheesy with a bit too much of everything--who has that many things happen to them at once, honestly? But, it was cute and I like the author's style of writing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vilo | 1/15/2014

    " I love Jeanne Ray. Besides being a ton of fun the book explores luck--do we find it? do we make it? and what consequences are there when it finds us? Lots of family complications and rewards. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stephanie | 1/6/2014

    " Just as fun as the first one. For a nice get away kind of read these 2 books are good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Blaine Morrow | 12/27/2013

    " Clever, light-hearted fun family fare with senior citizens in the mix. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lanita | 12/20/2013

    " This was a fluffy, fast read. I really like Jeanne Ray as an author and this book didn't disappoint. This was another sweet and fun story that literally had me laughing out loud at parts. I also thought the Willy Wonka thread was hilarious. Fun. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sharon | 12/13/2013

    " Another great one -- quick read, kept me up till 11:30 so I could finish it one sitting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angela | 12/2/2013

    " I was disappointed in this book, as it simply did not live up to the delightful first book. But, then again, few sequels do. I must admit, though, my biggest beef with this book was the fact that the author consistenly misspelled "Willy Wonka," spelling it "Willie" throughout the book. Really? Ugh. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Clare | 10/12/2013

    " It's not gonna rock any boats, but this is a sweet story about late-in-life love and family tension. Not memorable, but not terrible. "

    " I enjoy Jeanne Ray's writing style so much. All of her books are delightful to read! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amy Lou | 3/13/2010

    " I felt like this book was a bit of a disappointment when compared to the first book Julie and Romeo. It was still a good read, but it didn't pull me in the same way as the first book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ashley | 10/12/2009

    " A sequel to Julie and Romeo, it continues a couple of years after the last, picking up in the lives of the once warring Cacciamani and Roseman families. As always Jeanne Ray is awesome at creating realistic characters and showing them through the eyes of main character, Julie. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather | 9/30/2009

    " warning- not for younger readers. I don't remember how graphic Shakespeare got in Romeo and Juliet, but there are a few scenes in this book that I don't reccommend for teenage readers

    Even more delightful than the first. I wish there were more books to this series. "
