Synopsis:

An eccentric Italian heiress from the Finger Lakes. An eighteen-year-old pop star from Scranton, Pennsylvania. Allison Campbell’s latest clients seem worlds apart in every respect, except one: Both women disappear on the same day. And Allison’s colleague Vaughn is the last to have seen each.

Allison’s search for a connection uncovers an intricate web of family secrets, corporate transgressions and an age-old rivalry that crosses continents. The closer Allison gets to the truth, the deadlier her quest becomes. All paths lead back to a sinister Finger Lakes estate and the suicide of a woman thirty years earlier. Allison soon realizes the lives of her clients and the safety of those closest to her aren’t the only things at stake.

My Review

Finger Lakes, wine and Italian families…these are a few of my favorite things! When I first started reading this book, I felt like I was watching a strange makeover television show. I felt that the pace was slow and steady throughout, easing in to the mystery that unfolded. I really enjoyed Allison as the sleuth. I felt that she was a strong and confident woman, and not overly annoying/prying like some sleuths can be. I also enjoyed Francesca. I had a vivid image of her and being Italian myself, I’d say the author nailed the character! Vaughn was a strong character as well. Though this was not the first book in the series, and I hadn’t read the first book, I didn’t feel lost in the plot at all. I also thought the mystery was intriguing and complicated. I couldn’t wait to find out what happened, which kept me turning pages all night. Kudos to the author for a great job! 4 stars!

*Disclaimer: I received this book in exchange for an honest review as part of a book tour.
