It’s Mardi Gras season in New Orleans, but PI Franki Amato has too many problems to celebrate. A proven Sicilian lemon tradition hasn’t landed her a proposal, so her nonna has amped up the meddling to get her married, and pronto. Franki’s also under pressure to solve the strange murder of a family friend’s nephew, Nick Pescatore, who was found on a Mississippi River steamboat rumored to be haunted. When the sinister old boat sets sail on an overnight gambling cruise, Franki goes undercover with a motley crew, including a Mark Twainophile captain with a murderous past and a slimy galley chef with a mobster brother, not to mention an ex-stripper landlady with a newfound career as a memoir writer and all-too public speaker. Franki has to figure out what missing Civil War gold, a playing card, and a mysterious woman on roller skates have to do with Nick’s death. If she doesn’t, it’s anchors aweigh for Franki—down to Davy Jones’ locker.
This is book 5 in the Franki Amato Mysteries, and despite not having read the previous books I felt right at home with this instalment. Galliano Gold was a hoot to read filled with a cast of wonderful characters, and Franki’s madcap adventures reminded of another cozy series I love to read. I found myself laughing at the Italian banter between Franki, her family and her Nonna (Italian for grandmother) and they murder mystery had me guessing right to the end.
Despite being book 5 this is easily read as a stand alone, and its a great clean cozy mystery and a series that I am going to be keeping an eye on and go back and start from the beginning.
