The Rosetti Curse by Tina Russo

I just finished reading The Rosetti Curse by Tina Russo, and I wanted to share my thoughts with you.

I met Tina Russo Radcliffe on Seekerville a few years ago. She cares about others who want to become published authors and is generous with her time.

Tina writes romantic comedy as Tina Russo and inspirational romance as Tina Radcliffe. She lives in Phoenix, Arizona. She served our country as a Specialist 4th Class in the U.S .Army. She is a woman of many talents doing everything from a registered nurse to a library cataloger to a pharmacy clerk, and now she writes full-time at home. You can reach her or

The Rosetti Curse is a pure delight if you like romantic suspense. The characters are believable and likeable. The chemistry between the hero and heroine is electric. I was pulled in from the first page. This story will make you smile frequently and maybe cry once or twice.

If you want an enjoyable read with a touch of authentic Italian ambiance, this is the book for you. The love the characters have for each other will draw you in, and you'll cheer for the hero and heroine through the book.

Tessa Rosetti has lived under the shadow of a curse placed on her family three generations earlier. Three generations of women buried the men they love and confirmed Tessa’s belief in the Rosetti Curse.

Thomas Riley, a cop from Los Angeles, arrives home to settle his grandmother's estate in Silver Ridge, Colorado.
The first night home he breaks his leg in an explosion at the local biscotti factory that belongs to Tessa's new step-father.

Riley and Tessa grew up across the street from each other and renew their bond. Together they battle a curse that leads them on a journey of true love.

Here's a link to make it even easier for you to read this wonderful book. I don't think you'll be disappointed!


  1. Hey, thanks, for the shout out and review, Jackie. LOVE THE BLOG!!!

  2. Good review, Jackie. The review of an author in Phoenix makes me homesick -- my college alma-mater's in Phoenix, and my high school is about 100 miles north in Cottonwood. With today's pile of snow and a -11 degree high for the day (it dropped a degree since), I really am homesick.

  3. I've read this book and loved it! It has a perfect balance of suspense, romance and family.
    Ms Radcliffe's other books are delightful as well!
    It's great to see Romantic Suspense included on your website!

  4. Well, Jeff, winter is the only time to be in Phoenix! :)
