This book was fantastic! This is the second book in the Franki Amato Mysteries but can be read as a standalone. However, if you read this book you will want to read the first book Limoncello Yellow, which is currently in development as a TV movie. Frankie is a private investigator in New Orleans, and her boss Veronica, is her best friend. She has been dating sexy Bradley but doesn’t trust his sexy, sneaky new secretary. Franki and Veronica are hired to investigate the murder of a cosmetics CEO. Franki also starts investigating her boyfriend’s new secretary to prove to Bradley that she can’t be trusted. Franki also has to deal with her matchmaker and interfering grandmother. This book has it all, romance, mystery, suspense, humor, and a ghost. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series.

A Review copy was provided to me in exchange for a fair and honest review. The free book held no determination on my personal review.

Both books in this series have a good plot and mystery. However I deducted a full star for the way the author write the grandmothers speech. It's insulting and juvenile - and I'm not Italian! It feels as if the author believes the reader to be too stupid to understand a description of "thick Italian accent" and opted to spell it out for us a'la "I'm-a gonna a tell-a you-a something-a".

Also, it's strange that Franki can't think quickly on her feet, given she was a cop and expects a career as a PI now. The fact she couldn't come up with a simple "I was on my way to meet with a prospective client" when her car accident revealed to Brad she was following him. This happens many times in both books. She has easy access and legitimately plausible excuses but chokes everytime. Decent mystery but shallow characters and development. Doubt I'll continue this series unless there is serious growth and depth for these characters.

P.l.Franki Amato has her hands full. She's working on her first solo case that involves three murders, a haunted house, hidden treasure, and a flaky psychic. If that isn't enough, it appears that her boyfriend is cheating on her.

New Orleans is a fine setting for this mystery series with a touch of the paranormal. The story is paced well and held my interest. The characters are well-developed and engaging. Frankie is likeable and her crazy family back in Houston adds some humorous moments, especially her nonna. And then there's her sixty-ish landlady, the former stripper, who is a hoot.

Prosecco Pink is the second book in the series, but you don't have to read the first one, Limoncello Yellow, to enjoy this one. I recommend that you do simply because it is also an entertaining read.

I really can't say enough good things about Traci Andrighetti's writing and the world she's created in this funny, fabulous, sometimes spine-tingling series. I loved Limoncello Yellow so much that I was chomping at the bit to read another one of Franki's adventures, and Prosecco Pink did not disappoint!

The city of New Orleans is one of my favorite characters in these books, and Andrighetti paints a very vivid picture of this gothic southern locale with its sultry weather, moss-covered plantation homes, and murky swamps. The opening scene of the book actually takes place in one of those swamps where intrepid private detective Franki finds herself in quite a predicament involving two predatory beasts (I'll let you be the judge of who the more formidable foe is: the randy alligator she almost comes nose to snout with, or the she-devil secretary of Franki's banker boyfriend.) And that's just a jumping off point for all the action you'll find in Prosecco Pink.

Since I'm a history buff and have always been fascinated by ghost stories, the central mystery in this book was really compelling to me. Franki is assigned to investigate the murder of a beautiful, young cosmetics maven who's found, outfitted in a period gown, lying in the same spot where the dead body of the mistress of the plantation home was discovered hundreds of years ago. <cue Twilight Zone music> Before Franki knows it, she's got suspects galore, new corpses start turning up, and her own life is threatened (Who knew that a pineapple could be so ominous?) I can honestly say that I had no idea who the killer was until s/he made the big reveal in the final act, so kudos to the author for doing a masterful job with all the red herrings throughout the book.

I hope that Traci Andrighetti is a fast writer, because I can't wait to read another Franki mystery!

Franki Amato is working as a private investigator in New Orleans. Things aren't going to well for her though. The guy she's dating has a sexy new secretary that Franki doesn't trust. Her Nonna is causing trouble by planning her engagement party, even though Bradley has no plans to propose. Franki is the lead investigator on a murder case at an old plantation home. It’s rumored to be haunted. When more people start dying she has to rush to solve the murder before she's next.

I really enjoyed this book. I read the first book and really loved it. I was happy and excited to read this. It had all the wacky and silly antics of the first one.

I like Franki. She is an interesting character. She's pretty odd and then she gets herself into some pretty sticky situations. I have to say her obsession with food and eating is hilarious and I love it. I totally relate to that.

I was a little annoyed with the Bradley thing. Can't they just have some normal happiness? I liked him more in the first book. I hope he gets to be better in the next one. I loved nonna. She was so funny and I loved her crazy Sicilian meddling.

I really enjoyed this story and I can't wait for the next one, and to see what Franki and her friends get into next.
