Hepburn's Necklace

A vintage necklace. A long-hidden secret. A second chance for love.
From a USA Today bestselling 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 journey to the sun-dappled shores of Lake Como, Italy that 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 bestselling author of romantic women's fiction, including The Chocolatier, comes a dual-timeline, multigenerational 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. Hepburn’s Necklace is available in ebook, trade paperback, audiobook, hardcover, and large print editions. Get swept away with this mesmerizing family saga now.

An ode to the magic of Lake Como past and present, Hepburn’s Necklace sails between the set of Roman Holiday in 1952, and two complicated romances that blossom on the beautiful lake across two different generations. As sparkling as a Bellini, this novel of family secrets, lost love, and discovering one’s strength will transport you to Italy and leave you enchanted.” — Kristin Harmel, New York Times Bestselling author of The Book of Lost Names

Second chancestwists of fate, and a glittering Lake Como backdrop combine to create Jan Moran’s latest stunning read. Weaving back and forth through time, Moran creates an epic tale of love and loss that can’t help but make readers question what might have been. With lyrical prose and unforgettable characters, HEPBURN’S NECKLACE proves that Jan Moran is a writer at the top of her game and a storyteller to remember. — Kristy Woodson Harvey, USA Today Bestselling author of Feels Like Falling
