Book Review-A Villa in Sicily: Olive Oil and Murder (A Cats and Dogs Cozy Mystery—Book 1)-Fiona Grace

Wednesday, April 14, 2021

I do not think I would be brave enough to answer an ad that said I could purchase a house in Sicily for $1.00. Like Audrey, even if I did-I doubt I would win the lottery for it!! Well she won it and with what was going on--or not going on in her life at the time she decided to pack up and leave for a tiny town in Sicily!

Of course the house was nothing at all what she expected. But her Dad was a contractor and before he left the family he had taught her a thing or two. How hard could it be? Luckily she began to meet people who were willing to help her. It helped that she was a Vet--but she still had to get her license to work in Sicily!

She ended up helping a young fox who was injured and he decided that Audrey was perfect to live with! What a little scamp--you will love him!! Then there was the one really nasty neighbor--the kind of person most of us love to hate!

Of course it was Audrey who found the contractor dead--down a cliff and spent quite a bit of time worrying that she would end up in jail-so she did a bit of investigating.

No worries there is an extremely happy ending. And our little fox proves that even a wild animal can be tamed!!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

A VILLA IN SICILY: OLIVE OIL AND MURDER is the debut novel in a charming new cozy mystery series by bestselling author Fiona Grace, author of Murder in the Manor, a #1 Bestseller with over 100 five-star reviews (and a free download)!

Audrey Smart, 34, is a brilliant vet—yet fed up by her demanding clients who think they know more than her and who don’t care about their animals. Burnt-out with the endless hours, she wonders if the time has come for a new direction. And when her 15th year high school reunion (and her hopes for re-sparking on old flame) end in disaster, Audrey knows the time has come to make a change.

When Audrey sees an ad for a $1 home in Sicily, it captivates her. The only catch is that the house requires renovation, something she knows little about. She wonders if it could be real—and if she may really be crazy enough to go for it.

Can Audrey create a life and career—and the home of her dreams—in a beautiful Sicilian village? And perhaps even find love while she’s there?

Or will an unexpected death—one that only she can solve—put an end to all of her plans?

Are some dreams too good to be true?
