My new novel, Rome’s Last Noble Palace, is available for request on NetGalley

It’s October now, which means we’re much closer to Halloween and the haunting season.

So it’s the perfect time to announce my upcoming novel is now up and avaiable for request at NetGalley. Unlike my earlier novels, this story has a ghostly element … so may be worth a pre-Halloween read!

I am very excited for this new novel – my fourth! – this one set in Rome, Italy in present day and 1896. Entitled Rome’s Last Noble Palace, it tells the story of two women who make the attic of a Roman palazzo their home, albeit in two different centuries.

Here’s the blurb:

Two women. Two different centuries. One attic room

American Isabelle Field has been shipped off to Rome to live with her aunt, Princess Elizabeth Brancaccio. Isabelle’s aunt and mother share a common goal – replicating Elizabeth’s success by marrying Isabelle off to a European nobleman.

But Rome in 1896 is on the cusp of a new century and Isabelle longs for more than a titled husband. She secretly designs costumes for Rome’s burgeoning theatre environment and dreams of opening a fashion atelier. Can she gather the courage to forge a life for herself, even if it means going against expectations?

Over a century later, doctoral candidate Sophie Nouri can’t believe her good fortune when she is selected to intern in Rome’s Near Eastern Art Museum. Even better, the position includes an attic apartment in the spectacular museum property, the Palazzo Brancaccio.

Overseeing a major exhibition is stressful, but tension alone can’t explain the disturbing nighttime presence in the deserted hallways of the grand palace – especially one no one else can sense. Almost as if a spectral being is trying to communicate with Sophie directly. Or warn her.


If you are a NetGalley reviewer and this sounds like a story you’d like to read, please consider requesting my novel. I’m very eager for early reviews leading up to my 6 December launch! And I’m hoping you will enjoy reading the intertwined stories of Isabelle and Sophie as much as I enjoyed writing them.

All early reader reviews are welcome – please find the direct NetGalley link here.

Happy reading!
