Summary
"When prosecco-loving Auntie Poldi retired to Sicily from Germany, she never dreamt her tranquil days would be interrupted by murder. But Sicily had other plans, and Poldi found herself honor-bound to solve the disappearance of her beloved (and cute) handyman. Now, she's finally ready for some peace and quiet--interrupted by romantic encounters with handsome Chief Inspector Montana, of course--when the water supply to her neighborhood is cut off and a dear friend's dog is poisoned, tell-tale signs that a certain familial organization is flexing their muscle. Poldi knows there will be no resolution without her help. She soon finds a body in a vineyard, tangles with the Mafia, and yet again makes herself unpopular in the pursuit of justice. But once wine and murder mix, how could she possibly stay away? A sexy and thrilling follow up to Giordano's debut novel, Auntie Poldi and the Sicilian Lions, hailed by Adriana Trigiani as 'an explosion of color [and] a celebration of the palatte of Italian life and the Silian experience in its specificity, warm and drama'"--
