From Library Journal:

Three years after their romance began (in Julie and Romeo), sixtysomethings Julie and Romeo are more in love than ever and have merged their families' floral businesses. Each one is living with his/her respective relatives and relish their few moments alone together. During one such interlude, Romeo hurts his back in an ill-advised attempt to sweep Julie off her feet and is directed to stay in (Julie's) bed until the vertebrae heal. Meanwhile, his elderly mother thinks he's at a second-rate hospital; her granddaughter is obsessed with Willie Wonka and winning the lottery; her ex-husband is a new father; and her fortysomething daughter is suddenly desperate to have a baby. All par for the course in Ray's books, and all very funny. The author displays considerable skill reading her work; she is real, charming, and natural and captures Julie's wry sense of humor as well as the many emotions of the rest of the characters. She provides effective and subtle vocal characterizations, maintains an engaging pace, and makes it very hard to leave the story. Recommended for all fiction collections.-Melody A.
