Notes: Some sex—mixed with humor
Reviewer, Janet Elaine Smith
is the author of 12 published novels, including her latest
two, Par for the Course and And They Called Her General Leigh.
She also writes for many magazines, both print and ezines.
By Millie Criswell
is the fourth book of Millie Criswell that are set in Little Italy
in Baltimore, MD. The same characters follow through in this book,
as well as in the previous three. In true Criswell style, this book
Mia DeNero has started
a private eye business. The only thing she is lacking is a client.
If she had at least one, maybe she could at least pay the rent on
her dumpy office.
Nick Caruso to the rescue. Nick is posing as a geeky computer nerd
author, when in reality he is an undercover FBI agent, who is trying
to find an “in” to get information on Mia’s wacky
relatives (which include Mia’s outspoken mother and cross-dressing
ex-cop father) and friends who are supposedly running a very illegal
used car sales shop.
Mia and Nick
have more than their share of ups and downs after Nick moves in
with her. You will find yourself sympathizing with Mia, getting
mad at Nick, but laughing at every turn in this delightful tale.
The only problem with the book is that rumor has it that this might
be the last of the Little Italy tales, which is indeed a shame.
I could read at least one a year for years to come.
highly recommended. You can’t go wrong with a Millie Criswell
book, but these are the best of the bunch.
