Tulia Rose goes to Paris to give her current relationship a break and to unblock the logjam caused by the flop of her first novel. Voilà! An artist who draws angels in sidewalk chalk inspires a story about the Renaissance painter Raphael. But wait. This artist's name is also Raphael, and his knowledge of the painter's life is eerie. Julia dreams about the famous painter's secret lover, evoking an overwhelming sense of déjà vu. Nifty plotting has the main story pause for passages from Tulia's book and the travelogue she's reading, keeping this entertaining novel from becoming a sentimental romance.
