Romeo y Giulietta

From Amazon: "When Julie Jacobs inherits a key to a safety deposit box in Siena, Italy, she is told it will lead her to an old family treasure. Soon she is launched on a precarious journey into the true history of her ancestor Giulietta, whose legendary love for a young man named Romeo turned medieval Siena upside down. As Julie crosses paths with the descendants of the families involved in Shakespeare’s unforgettable blood feud, she begins to realize that the notorious curse – “A plague on both your houses!” – is still at work, and that she is the next target. It seems the only one who can save her from her fate is Romeo… but where is he?"

I adored this book and it made me even more excited for my trip to Siena in less than 3 short months! :] I honestly have never like Shakespeare's plays but this book made me want to go reread the "Romeo and Juliet" one.  I recommend this book to everyone even if you aren't travelling to Italy like me.  Its a good romance and mystery novel.
