Hmmm I read this several weeks ago and I can t even remember how it ended I do remember that it irked me throughout the book that the police detective kept getting touchy feely, groping, kissy with the main character while investigating the case and in uniform and on duty Really I had to get used to how J.M Griffin began this book inasmuch as I felt there might have been a prior book but no, this is the 1st of the Series It was a good mystery but I think you will realize who the culprits are pretty quickly. Entertaining This doesn t have the depth of character, or unique plot that would propel it into the stratosphere, but it s an enjoyable read all the same It s cozy, and a mystery exactly what it says on the tin So dive in and enjoy it for what it is a few hours of escapism. The Italian connection Brilliant Sassy, brash and confident, Vinnie has taken over the house that her aunt left her when she died She certainly didn t expect an anonymous package to be left on her doorstep Calling the troopers in she feared it might contain explosives has her meeting her hunky hero Cut gems are in the package Was her aunt involved in smuggling Was her aunt s death natural More packages come to light With a new tenant, her BFF and her hunk she starts to investigate Can The Italian connection Brilliant Sassy, brash and confident, Vinnie has taken over the house that her aunt left her when she died She certainly didn t expect an anonymous package to be left on her doorstep Calling the troopers in she feared it might contain explosives has her meeting her hunky hero Cut gems are in the package Was her aunt involved in smuggling Was her aunt s death natural More packages come to light With a new tenant, her BFF and her hunk she starts to investigate Can she find out what really happened to her aunt and who is behind the gems as she has already been attacked and her home turned over twice A great plot with some nice twists even though you know early on who the culprits are Great diversity of character lend evento the story This writer really needs an editor, for both grammar word choice and help with realistic, believable dialogue Both weaknesses are a big distraction from what I think may be a decent plot Hoping the rest of the series is stronger I like light romance, but only if it s truly readable and clever Writer would greatly benefit from a strong editor as partner. I think this was a case of It s me, not you I ve read too similar books this summer I would give another book in the series a try as the main character Vinnie grew on me. This is a new author and a new series for me I liked the story and the characters I also liked the author s language.
