Review: Unmasking Juliet by Teri Wilson

Juliet Arabella's family's chocolate shop has resided across the street from the Mezzanotts for generations and the families have been bitter rivals. Until one night at a masquerade ball, she meets sexy Leo. Little does she know the passionate, spontaneous kiss she shared was with none other than a Mezzanott! Except now a spark has lit and the two can't seem to stay away, even when they should. Now both are competing in Italy for a prestigous chocolate competition. Their choice is to find a way to end the family feud or end the relationship.

I read Wilson's other book based loosely off Pride & Prejudice and was pretty impressed. This one mirrors Romeo & Juliet (with a happier ending). I'm not normally a big fan of these rewrites or lit-based books, but Wilson has a lovely writing style and humor that make these pleasurable reads. As with the first book, there were a couple of unrealistic plot points, but other than that, this was a great read. Perfect setting, involved characters, decent conflict. Recommended!
