PROSECCO PINK is published!

Prosecco Pink, the second novel in my Franki Amato Mystery series, is out! For this book, as with Limoncello Yellow, I was inspired by the intriguing city of New Orleans. The plantation part of the plot came to me while sipping a mint julep at Oak Alley plantation, and pirate part came to me while slurping on a purple voodoo at Jean Lafitte’s Blacksmith Shop (uh-huh, I plan murders while I drink—fictional ones, of course). Then I added Prosecco, the color pink and poison, and the mystery was born.

Here’s the book blurb for Prosecco Pink:

For Franki Amato, life in New Orleans is anything but “The Big Easy.” When she met handsome bank executive Bradley Hartmann, she knew she’d finally found a man she could trust. But she can’t say the same for his sexy new secretary, who is about as trustworthy as Mata Hari and every bit as seductive. Meanwhile, Franki’s best friend and employer, Veronica Maggio, has named her the lead investigator in the murder of a gorgeous cosmetics CEO who was found lying dead in the master bedroom of a historic plantation home.

Now the pressure is on Franki to figure out what a bottle of pink lip gloss and the legend of a pink diamond have to do with the bizarre killing. The problem is that the plantation is notorious for being haunted, and Franki is less than enthusiastic about the prospect of meeting a ghost. Adding to her stress, her Sicilian grandma is up to her usual meddling antics—this time planning Franki’s engagement to Bradley before he’s even considered popping the question. As Bradley grows distant and plantation employees begin dropping like Southern belles during a sweltering summer, Franki turns to a psychic with a phobia of ghosts to solve the mysterious murders and her own relationship fears.

  1. Loved Limoncello Yellow! I’m from New Orleans, and I very much enjoyed reading your book, which got a lot of the details of the city right! Thank you for doing your research and painting a vivid picture of the city I love so much. I can’t wait to read Prosecco Pink and hear about more of Frankie Amato’s exciting adventures.

    • Grazie, Jennifer! I go to New Orleans often because I love it so much. Let me know what you think of Prosecco. Oak Alley plantation was my inspiration for this book. 😉

  2. I want to wish you the best of luck and great sales on book 2. I loved Limoncello Yellow so much so know that this one will be as good if not better as each book the authors write seem to please the readers more each time. Just bought it today and entered one of the contests and logged off by mistake and can’t find the link to finish it. Oh well. Just wanted to tell you how happy I am for you and wish you much success. I have been a friend on FB for a long time but don’t get to comment much as I have had to be in bed for approx. 22 hours a day and due to medical problems and getting to my office to be on my desk top computer is not easy to do. Thank goodness I got to see this today as I wanted to get the book and who could resist with an sale price of only .99. Great news all around. 🙂
    Thank you.
