Auntie Poldi and the Sicilian Lions

Auntie Poldi and the Sicilian Lions
$14.99

Katia says: Normally not one for murder mysteries, I absolutely loved Auntie Poldi and her Sicilian adventures. Poldi moves to Sicily on her 60th birthday following the death of her husband, intending to drink her life away with a view of the sea. However, when her young friend handyman, Valentino, is murdered, she begins her own DIY investigation to bring his murderer to justice. This book is full of lovely descriptions of Sicily, little nuggets of wisdom, and smoldering zingers from our one and only Auntie Poldi.

“Break out the prosecco! There’s a new detective in town” (People Magazine). Now available in paperback, the delightfully sexy and bighearted novel starring Auntie Poldi, Sicily’s newest amateur sleuth

“To the ranks of amateur sleuths, from Miss Marple to Jessica Fletcher, welcome Auntie Poldi.” — Newsday

On her sixtieth birthday, Auntie Poldi retires to Sicily, intending to while away the rest of her days with good wine, a view of the sea, and few visitors. But Sicily isn’t quite the tranquil island she thought it would be. When her handsome young handyman goes missing—and is discovered murdered—she can’t help but ask questions. Soon there’s an investigation, a smoldering police inspector, a romantic entanglement, one false lead after another, a rooftop showdown, and finally, of course, Poldi herself, slightly tousled but still perfectly poised. This “masterly treat” (Times Literary Supplement) will transport you to the rocky shores of Torre Archirafi, to a Sicily full of quirky characters, scorching days, and velvety nights, alongside a protagonist who’s as fiery as the Sicilian sun.
