The Blonde in the Gondola

Orna O'Reilly

Olivia has everything: a handsome husband, a thriving interior design business, and a privileged life in Dublin.


Jane is married to an Italian aristocrat, and wants for nothing, except, perhaps, a loving husband, who seems to devote his life only to their young daughter.


But, when misfortune and tragedy strike both of these beautiful women, it becomes inevitable that they will be thrown together in Venice, where they pit their wits against each other for the love of the same man, and a handsome, blond gondolier becomes the catalyst for a fight to the finish, involving conspiracy, betrayal and death.
