Limoncello Yellow by Traci Andrighetti
A Franki Amato Mystery

Francesca “Franki” Amato is a tough-talking rookie cop in Austin, Texas—until an unfortunate 911 call involving her boyfriend, Vince, and a German female wrestler convinces her once and for all that she just isn’t cut out for a life on the police force. So Franki makes the snap decision to move to New Orleans to work at her friend Veronica’s detective agency, Private Chicks, Inc. But Franki’s hopes for a more stable life are soon dashed when Private Chicks is hired by the prime suspect in a murder case to find out what really happened to a beautiful young boutique manager who was found strangled to death with a cheap yellow scarf. When she’s not investigating, Franki is hoping to seduce handsome bank executive Bradley Hartmann, but most of her time is spent dodging date offers from a string of “good Italian boys”—make that not-so-good aging Italian men—that her meddlesome Sicilian grandma has recruited as marriage candidates. As Mardi Gras approaches and the mystery of the murdered shop girl gets more complicated, Franki must decipher the odd ramblings of a Voodoo priestess to solve both the murder and the mystery of her own love life.

From page 56: “Is this yours, miss?” he asked.

He was holding up my birth control case–with an annoying twinkle in his eye. I must have dropped it when I was standing in line digging through my bag for the pen I’d used to fill out my withdrawal slip. I felt like my whole body was turning red with embarrassment. Not only had he probably heard my cutting remarks about men, but now he also knew I was having sex with at least one of them.

  • Every time I see that book, I think to myself, “I really need to try Limoncello, the liquer.” 🙂

    LOL This is a humorous Friday 56….love it! This sounds like a cute book.

  • This book sounds like a fun read. I saw it described in a blogger’s review (Yvonne from Socrates Cafe, I believe) as a combination cozy mystery/chick lit book.

    Thanks for visiting my blog.
