In the Shadow of the Olive Tree

A trullo, a palazzo and the Pugliese blue serve as the backdrops for Orna O’Reilly’s second turn with the contemporary fiction quill, and it’s a good one: In the Shadow of the Olive Tree.

On the heels of The Blonde in the Gondola, it’s a brilliantly paced read that’ll have you on the edge of your seat and keep you there. With more plot twists than a white-knuckle roller coaster ride, Orna brings it home with an “I didn’t see that coming” of an ending that’ll leave you craving for more from this clever and descriptive storyteller.

You can preorder your copy now with Pegasus Publishers, or wait until July 29th when it hits the bookshelves at Amazon and Goodreads.

In the Shadow of the Olive Tree, it’s must-read this summer.




  1. Thank you so much for this warm-up. It’s not like you to be so modest about your photographic skills that you omitted to mention that the cover photo is by you. Always so supportive. 🥰

  2. Looking forward to the read as I love a tale with a good twist! From the cover notes, and having read ‘Blonde in a Gondola’, it seems that Claudia and Janet might just deliver for me!
