I received a review copy
For Franki Amato, life in New Orleans is anything but “The Big Easy.” When she met handsome bank executive Bradley Hartmann, she knew she’d finally found a man she could trust. But she can’t say the same for his sexy new secretary, who is about as trustworthy as Mata Hari and every bit as seductive. Meanwhile, Franki’s best friend and employer, Veronica Maggio, has named her the lead investigator in the murder of a gorgeous cosmetics CEO who was found lying dead in the master bedroom of a historic plantation home.
Now the pressure is on Franki to figure out what a bottle of pink lip gloss and the legend of a pink diamond have to do with the bizarre killing. The problem is that the plantation is notorious for being haunted, and Franki is less than enthusiastic about the prospect of meeting a ghost. Adding to her stress, her Sicilian grandma is up to her usual meddling antics—this time planning Franki’s engagement to Bradley before he’s even considered popping the question. As Bradley grows distant and plantation employees begin dropping like Southern belles during a sweltering summer, Franki turns to a psychic with a phobia of ghosts to solve the mysterious murders and her own relationship fears.
I have also read Limoncello Yellow which introduces us to this fun cast of characters, and I was so excited when Traci Andrighetti released Prosecco Pink! I have a lot of fun reading mystery books, but ones with a chick lit twist – even better! Franki is a blast to hang out with, and it was interesting to watch her relationship with Bradley, since things didn’t seem so happy-go-lucky with them with a possible boyfriend stealer in the picture. And the supporting cast of Franki’s family will leave you in stitches. That Nonna is one funny woman. But the main plot point is the mystery of the murders at a historic plantation home. I had a tough time figuring this one out, and then when you think you have it pieced all together, another little twist comes along. A lot of fun to read, and I hope you can get a copy of both books!
