The House by the Cypress Trees

Coming in 2019 from The Wild Rose Press.

Julia Ramos’ trip to Italy to find her birth mother would be perfect—if not for stealing a dog, being run over by a handsome British architect, and getting kicked out of her rental apartment.

Daniel Stafford’s wouldn’t mind going to visit his family in Tuscany—if not for his girlfriend ditching him for their Italian driver, botching up a work presentation in Rome, and an assertive American teacher with a dog jumping in front of his car.

When Julia and Daniel’s disastrous lives collide in Rome, they have no choice but attempt to help each other. As they navigate their trip through Italy, they find that, despite their differences, they can’t help but fall in love. However, even the best intentions often suffer from family interference and misunderstandings.
