My ‘Read It Forward Moment’ with a Novel by Roland Merullo

We all have them. Those moments when we give a book we love to a friend, when someone shares a favorite book with us.

I had a ‘Read It Forward Moment’ with Roland Merullo’s A Little Love Story. His newest novel, Vatican Waltz, is sure to inspire readers to pass it on. Reviewers rave about Merullo’s fiction!

“Captivating . . . [Merullo] is adept at creating suspense, planting credible red herrings, and finally spilling the truth at just the right moment.” —Boston Globe

“Merullo has a knack for rendering emotional complexities, paradoxes, or impasses in a mere turn of the phrase.” —Chicago Tribune

“[Merullo] is simply a throwback to the days when novels by serious writers—Stevenson, Conrad, Greene—often had what are called ‘plots.’ ” —St. Petersburg Times

    This book is a very good one if you’re into the smoking weed genre of book. The illuminati would be very proud if you sent them this book and would gladly accept you as well as the kkk. I would have to rate it a 6 out of 9 or even a 4 out of 20. It’s very elegant while jumping on a trampoline while eating mountain dew cans. Would recommend. 😀 help me
