Book Review -Gemini Moon-(Lella York Mysteries Book 1)-Maria Grazia Swan

Tuesday, September 13, 2016

This story has so many twists and turns I admit I got lost every once in a while. What in the world was going on here? Who is that sexy police officer and who is that lawyer that he hired to try to get Lella's son out of jail. And her poor cat----I'm surprised she didn't run away from home! But all will be revealed by the end which came rather quickly for me since I really wanted to know and read it in one sitting!! I am now looking forward to the second in this series.

About the book: (from Amazon)

When her eyes were finally opened to the truth, she couldn't recognize her own life...
Italian-born Lella York is trying to figure out who she is. Her husband has died. Her son is grown and, for the most part, gone. And now, her best friend is missing. Upon returning to Southern California after a visit to her beloved Italy, Lella is shocked to learn the mysterious circumstances of Ruby's disappearance as well as the death of Ruby's husband. And Lella's son is the prime suspect. Her cat is not so happy about it all either!

Now, someone's stalking Lella. Caught in the middle of it all, Lella stumbles across the perfect topper--namely, a sexy police detective who keeps secrets from her while he's setting her pants on fire. Nothing like a little romance to distract a girl while she's trying to locate a missing person, solve a possible homicide, get her son out of jail and stay two steps ahead of the firing line.

About The Author: (from Amazon)

I love to hear from my readers. thank you
National Bestselling author Maria Grazia Swan was born in Italy, but this rolling stone has definitely gathered no moss. She lived in Belgium, France, Germany, in beautiful Orange County, California where she raised her family, and is currently at home in Phoenix, Arizona--but stay tuned for weekly updates of Where in the World is Maria Grazia Swan?

As a young girl, her vivid imagination predestined her to be a writer. She won her first literary award at the age of fourteen while living in Belgium. As a young woman Maria returned to Italy to design for--ooh-la-la--haute couture. Once in the U.S. and after years of concentrating on family, she tackled real estate. These days her time is devoted to her deepest passions: writing and helping people find happiness.

Maria loves travel, opera, good books, hiking, and intelligent movies (if she can find one, that is). When asked about her idea of a perfect evening, she favors stimulating conversation, Northern Italian food and perfectly chilled Prosecco--but then, who doesn't?

Maria has written short stories for anthologies, articles for high profile magazines and numerous blogs tackling love and life.

This sounds really spicy. A mystery detective book. I haven't read one of these in a very long time. I'm more of the get the just romance novel book but I'd read this.

LOL we're the same. When I'm reading a particularly good book I breeze through the pages and when I reach the end I'm like what it's done already?? Then of course I read it again, more deliberately this time :)

Just from what you shared, I can tell this is a thriller to keep us on our toes. I hope it all worked out in Lella's favor.
