This is a well written and very thorough review that perfectly sums up the story without giving too much away. I took a trip to the UK several years back, and while I was there I visited William Shakespeare’s childhood home. The idea for the book immediately popped into my head, but I didn’t actually get to work on it until a few years later. “Juliet Must Die” and the follow-up novel “Deathly Dreaming Juliet” are both available at, Barnes &, and Google play books in e-book and paperback formats.

All the best!
