A trio of second-born daughters sets out on a whirlwind journey through the lush Italian countryside to break the family curse that says they’ll never find love, by New York Times bestseller Lori Nelson Spielman, author of The Life List.
Since the day Filomena Fontana cast a curse upon her sister more than two hundred years ago, not one second-born Fontana daughter has found lasting love. Some, like second-born Emilia, the happily-single baker at her grandfather’s Brooklyn deli, claim it’s an odd coincidence. Others, like her sexy, desperate-for-love cousin Lucy, insist it’s a true hex. But both are bewildered when their great-aunt calls with an astounding proposition: If they accompany her to her homeland of Italy, Aunt Poppy vows she’ll meet the love of her life on the steps of the Ravello Cathedral on her eightieth birthday, and break the Fontana Second-Daughter Curse once and for all.
Against the backdrop of wandering Venetian canals, rolling Tuscan fields, and enchanting Amalfi Coast villages, romance blooms, destinies are found, and family secrets are unearthed—secrets that could threaten the family far more than a centuries-old curse.

I liked this story quite a bit...even more so as secrets were unveiled near the end. BUT, the constant reference to the damned curse was beyond irritating to me! Especially for the cousins in their twenties. There was a good deal of solid information that could have left the "curse" and the belief in it in generations past as incentive for the deeper familial relationship challenges but to have these two young women discussing it ad nauseum fell quite a bit short for me. A bit less of that and a bit more of the grandmothers' decisions and how that complicated numerous relationships would have elevated this book enormously for me.
