Style and Substance. Fire and Ice. It’s a Roman Hell-iday when Janetta Orlando and Bob White clash in romantic Rome.
Janetta Orlando’s life has been bouncing along the gutter like a Brunswick bowling ball after a series of disastrous relationships. When her girl’s getaway with her best friend is abruptly cancelled, she is left with nothing to look forward to. No vacation. No wine. No men.
Bob White is headed to Rome with his girlfriend, who is fluent in Italian, to sell his invention to an Italian businessman. When she dumps him, he is left without a translator.
After Bob learns that Janetta, his hairdresser, has two weeks off and speaks Italian, he presents her with a deal: He will pay her to accompany him to Rome to serve as his translator. A lover of the Eternal City, Janetta agrees to the deal, but soon learns that the devil is in the details as their trip turns into a Roman Hell-iday when she and Bob clash over nearly everything from fashion to food to faith.
Laughter, tears, and love flow like the Trevi Fountain as Janetta, with the help an unlikely aide, finds her true herself, her true faith, and her true love in Rome.
