Spread the love

By: Jessie Rosen

Shea inherited a lot of “Rules for Life” from her beloved Nonna. There were rules for everything, but the one that really stuck with her was “Never get engaged with an heirloom ring.” So, of course, her boyfriend proposes with an heirloom ring (I mean, did she not tell him?). She is convinced that any ring will carry all of the bad karma from the marriages that have been associated with it in the past.

Basically, what follows is a very large over reaction to an heirloom ring. I wondered for a while if maybe she just really didn’t want to marry the guy, but this would even be an over reaction to that. It’s a pleasant enough story with Shea travelling to Italy and Portugal to trace the history of her ring. You just have to be willing to go along for the ride without really worrying about the practicality of spending thousands of dollars because of a superstition.

I received a free advance copy of this book in exchange for this honest review.
