My Review:

Wow! I wasn’t sure how Traci was going to top Lemoncello Yellow, the first book in the Franki Amato Series, but, she certainly outdid herself! Intrigue, mystery, romance, fabulous characters, and a barrel of laughs is how I would describe Prosecco Pink. I actually laughed out loud when Franki woke up after a night of pirate partying and found herself in…well, I can’t give it away, but it was hysterical. Nonna and the clan from back home are a laugh a minute. I was reading on my lunch hour, the part about Nonna having a conniption, when I glanced at my watch, and was like, Yikes! I have to get back to work! You know a book is good when you are reading during your lunch hour and you almost forget to go back to work! If you like Stephanie Plum, you’re going to love Franki Amato. 5 stars, and worth every one!

**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.

Traci Andrighetti-11b

About This Author

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.
