LoveReading View on Vendetta

This Romeo and Juliet story throbs with passion and mystery from the opening chapter to the very end! Sophie Gracewell is on her way home from her job at the family diner when she runs into (literally) Nic Falcone, dark, Hollywood handsome and oh so troubled. He and his brothers have just moved into the neighbourhood’s spooky old house and it’s clear from the beginning that they’re hiding something. But then Sophie’s cupboards too have enough skeletons to form a small rattling army. As Sophie falls in love with Nic, the dark secret that links their families emerges. Love, romance, mystery and adventure are present in equal measure, all conveyed in a series of vivid tableaux, that conclude with an edge of your seat thrilling final scene. ~ Andrea Reece

 

A Piece of Passion from Barry Cunningham, Publisher  This is one of the best movies I’ve ever read. Seriously. From the very beginning Catherine Doyle guides you through those early scenes like a cool director, with awesome pictures-in-words and fantastic dialogue. Then I begin to worry for the girls – and the boys begin to scare me. Then – never mind, you’ll see. Of course this is a book, so we’ll all see our own movies in our heads and that’s great too. Catherine Doyle is impossibly young, wildly talented and Vendetta is a romantic thriller to die for. Oh no, did I really write that?
