Book Review-A Villa in Sicily-Figs and a Cadaver-Fiona Grace

Wednesday, September 7, 2022

Being an ex pat in a small town in Sicily where you bought the house for $1.00 sight unseen and are attempting to set up your veterinary practice is not as easy as it sounds. There is a council woman who is trying her darndest to get her to leave town, a next door neighbor who is absolutely the worst. Of course there is a restaurant owner trying to get her to go with him and a gorgeous ex pat who is trying to help her.

The council woman is found dead and Audrey being a newcomer and known to have trouble with this woman--well. It was actually a very large well behaved dog who showed them the body. Since he had no collar except for the one he dug up--Audrey took him back to her vet office.

It is the dog who ultimately solved the case.

This is the second book in this series and is a clean cozy which everyone will enjoy in my opinion. Be sure to read this series in order as there is a continuation from the 1st to the second. Yes, I read and reviewed the 1st one before this one--will wonders never cease.

About the Book: (from Amazon)

A VILLA IN SICILY: FIGS AND A CADAVER is book #2 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, has made a major life change, walking away from her life as a vet (and from a string of failed romance) and moving to Sicily to buy a $1 home—and embark on a mandatory renovation she knows nothing about. Audrey is busy working to open the town’s new shelter, while also renovating her own problematic home—and dating again. With the help of friends, she begins taking in sick strays. But not everyone in town is grateful for her services, and she soon makes unexpected enemies. When Audrey gets a tip about an injured dog near the coast and goes to find him—she finds the dead body of a powerful local instead. Can Audrey, now a suspect, solve the crime and clear her name? Or will her Sicilian dream fall apart?
