**Now in development for a TV movie!**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.Franki Amato Mysteries:
Limoncello Yellow (book #1)
Prosecco Pink (book #2)
Traci Andrighetti is the author of the Franki Amato Mysteries. In her previous life, she was an award-winning literary translator and a Lecturer of Italian at the University of Texas at Austin, where she earned a PhD in Applied Linguistics. But then she got wise and ditched that academic stuff for a life of crime–writing, that is.
If she’s not hard at work on her next novel, Traci is probably watching her favorite Italian soap opera, eating Tex Mex or sampling fruity cocktails, and maybe all at the same time. She lives in Austin with her husband, young son (who desperately wants to be in one of her books) and three treat-addicted dogs.
My review: Prosecco pink by Traci Andrighetti
Franki Amato is back in her second book. Franki is a P.I. working in New Orleans for her friend Veronica Maggio. She is smart, jealous, & has a funny family. Unless you have one like hers.
Full of interesting characters.
Bradley Hartmann has been dating Franki. He is a bank executive. He is always working late especially on days they have dates planned. His new assistant is a beautiful sexy woman who is trying to steal him away.
physic has a message from a ghost for her, Franki is asked to solve a murder, There is a missing pink diamond, Land lady is a stripper. Her Sicilian grandma is trying to plan her engagement party( She is not engaged) behind her back. Her boss is behaving different. It all combines to be a fun light hearted murder mystery.
It is full of troubles for Franki. Lots of drama ,action and murder in this book. Also lots of laughter.
The setting for this book is New Orleans. also a lot is set in a old plantation with ghosts.
I was given Prosecco Pink to read so I could give a honest review of it and be part of it's blog tour.
