Review of "Italian Summer"
Twenty-something, Mina Calvi returned to her hometown of Veneto, Italy after spending ten years in California. She rented Professor Cervi's condo while he was taking classes at USC. Emilia Lauri, a semi-retired attorney lived upstairs and knew Mina's grandmother. And that was the first thread of the fabric that was woven into this small town mystery. The plot thickened around Mina's crazy friend Lola, her dead twin brother, Vittorio, Piero, the undertaker, his son, Enzo, and finally Diego, Mina's lover and his friend, Gino. This light-hearted narrative was well thought out, but like any series leaves loose ends for the reader to either tie up or read the next release. 4 Stars
