Short and sweet but with so little conflict I was left wanting more...
really good book. Like the sopranos but rated pg 13
Plucky half-Italian/half-Sicilian (there is a difference!) heroine seeks Thunderbolt. Really fun book, especially if you're a fan of mobster movies. (Feels like you're getting the inside scoop on what this family of the "Family" is like on a daily basis.)
This is a RED DRESS INK book. I really liked this book. There is a great recipe in the back of the book.
It's funny and one of the best books I've read recently.
Quick read. Some parts I had a hard time getting into but overall, I liked the storyline.
I enjoyed this book. It is a quick, light read~!
Can Orloff write a bad book? No. Another winner. I just wish she'd write more, faster!
Was a quick & fun read
I really enjoyed it
This was a really quick, pretty cute story. I love books with recipes in the back! :)
WOW! My book arrived yesterday afternoon. I picked it up as soon as my girls went to bed -- I couldn't put it down until I finished it three hours later. I loved this book. It was light and entertaining. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a good romance or an inside look at the Mafia. Terrific read.
Great Chick Lit ! I loved this book - the characters were lovable, the situations were light and funny, and the romance did not leak over into the TMI category. Great summer read & even included an "authentic" gravy (spaghetti sauce) recipe that rocks!
meets Sex & the City
, with some Law & Order
and Nigella Bites
thrown in for good measure. Includes a recipe for "The Marcello Family Gravy" (aka spaghetti sauce) at the end. Read an excerpt at RedDressInk.com
From the back of the book
Goombah to Gucci. The story of the only granddaughter among seventeen grandsons of a reputed Mafia don, Teddi Gallo has been used to overprotective men her entire life. But now she's decamped to Manhattan with dreams of making it in the brutal restaurant business. Unfortunately, the FBI believes she laundering money . . . and her old-money boyfriend may not understand about the hundred pairs of stolen Jimmy Choo shoes in her uncle Vito's living room. But a few well-hatched schemes from her eccentric room-mate and a dose of Mafia Chic may just get Teddi out of this jam.
Erica Orloff, a novelist from south Florida, is well-acquainted with "things that fall off trucks."
