Publisher's Summary

A vintage necklace. A long-hidden secret. A second chance for love. 

From a USA Today best-selling author.

When costume designer Ariana Ricci leaves her groom at the altar, she seeks solace at the Palm Springs home of her great-aunt, a Texas-born Hollywood legend who began her career as an extra on the film Roman Holiday. While opening yellowed, 1950s letters postmarked Italy, Ariana discovers relics from her great-aunt’s hidden past, including an intriguing necklace that Audrey Hepburn gave her during the filming of the movie. 

Aching for a fresh start and the chance to resolve an unfinished story, the two embark on a trip to the sun-dappled shores of Lake Como, Italy. The journey will illuminate secrets of a bygone era and offer second chances to each of them — if they are bold enough to seize them.

From Jan Moran, a USA Today best-selling author of romantic women's fiction, including The Chocolatier, comes a saga of love and second chances at any age. Also enjoy her contemporary Summer Beach series and the historical novels, The Winemakers and The Perfumer: Scent of Triumph.

I think Jan Moran is my new must follow author!

I am a long-time fan of Jan Moran’s books. Hepburn’s Necklace was phenomenal! Not only the book but the performance as well. Roman Holiday is available on Amazon Online and I plan to watch it again. Will be be downloading more of Jan’s audible books.

Wow!!

Thoroughly enjoyed this story it was like putting a puzzle together. Trying to remember all of the Italian names, as well as their relationship to each other then also keeping up with the period we were in, did get a little complicated. It sure helped me when you gave the relationship of the characters to each other along the way. I enjoyed trying to come up with the ending. Almost got it figured out before the last few chapters.

Wonderful story!

This was a very enjoyable read; I loved the two time periods and Italian locations. It had a bit of mystery in a multi-generation family. Erin Bennet’s performance was well done.

Predictable

Story predictable- I kept expecting a twist but it never did. Some parts went too slowly and were too belabored. I enjoyed the descriptions of Italy.

Sweet

A long and sugar sweet story. The narrator added a lot with accents . The story is predictable however the descriptions of locations also kept the listener mildly involved.

Not my favorite story

The entire story just felt desperate to me and I kept hoping something would change but it didn’t.
