“In her first book Pamela Allegretto captivated readers with sweeping frescoes of WW2 Rome imagined through her artist’s eye. In her second she switches genres to display her talents as a caricaturist in a rollicking tongue-in-cheek adventure about a hunt for missing diamonds.
The city of Venice comes to life with its narrow streets, famous canals and a wonderfully baroque hotel with confusing corridors, staircases and exits, a perfect backdrop for the cat and mouse game in which the heroine, Carla Romano, ducks and dodges a vividly portrayed rogues gallery of unsavoury (and pungent-smelling) characters who are convinced she is hiding a fortune in the funerary urn which contains the ashes of her best friend.
Where will they pop up next? And in what disguise?
Will the nimble Carla in her devastating designer shoes manage to outwit her pursuers, aided and abetted by a sexy Italian hero? Casting off her artist’s smock for the crocheted bonnet of Miss Marple, Carla is determined to figure out who is hunting her, and why. Will she succeed? Read the book and enjoy!”
My most heartfelt thanks to author Laurette Long for taking the time to write such an amazing review. I am honored to have an author of your caliber appreciate my work. I envy your life in France. Best wishes!
