Unmasking Juliet

Alack, the perils of love
hath no place in time and space,
when star-crossed chocolate lovers
do encounter trials and tribulations;
a plague on both their chocolate houses.

Teri Wilson once again thrills readers with her latest offering, Unmasking Juliet, this time a delightful, romantic, and humorous tale of Juliet and her Leonardo (a subtle nod to Leonardo DiCaprio who played Romeo to Claire Danes’ Juliet in Baz Luhrmann’s gritty, stylized, modern take on Romeo and Juliet, 1996).

Usually it’s war when the feuding houses of Arabella and Mezzanotte meet. The high-end chocolatier families, once so friendly they ran a chocolate shop together in Napa Valley, fell into quarreling and became blood enemies.
Now Juliet Arabella and Leonardo Mezzanotte make each others blood boil, but in a whole different way.
While they fight their attraction for each other, they must also fight for coveted prizes and their families’ acceptance.

Ms. Wilson’s contemporary adaptation of  William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, with a hint of Cinderella, in a vineyard instead of a ballroom, gives readers all the romance, including a rather (oh my!) interesting balcony scene, but without the teen angst, death, and with more chocolate.
Come to think of it, I don’t know which was more exciting, all the romance, or all the delectable descriptions of chocolate, or a combination.
