A VILLA IN SICILY: FIGS AND A CADAVER is book #2 in a charming new cozy mystery series by bestselling author Fiona Grace, author of Murder in the Manor, a #1 Bestseller with over 100 five-star reviews (and a free download)!

Audrey Smart, 34, has made a major life change, walking away from her life as a vet (and from a string of failed romance) and moving to Sicily to buy a $1 home—and embark on a mandatory renovation she knows nothing about.

Audrey is busy working to open the town’s new shelter, while also renovating her own problematic home—and dating again. With the help of friends, she begins taking in sick strays. But not everyone in town is grateful for her services, and she soon makes unexpected enemies.

When Audrey gets a tip about an injured dog near the coast and goes to find him—she finds the dead body of a powerful local instead.

Can Audrey, now a suspect, solve the crime and clear her name?

Or will her Sicilian dream fall apart?

A laugh-out-loud cozy packed with mystery, intrigue, renovation, animals, food, wine—and of course, love—A VILLA IN SICILY will capture your heart and keep you glued to the very last page.

Book #3 in the series—VINO AND DEATH—is now also available!

    By Bend in like a Bohemian
    Audrey is up against an unexpectedly close deadline for the completion of her clinic. An apparently meddlesome councilwoman seems to be trying to get strays euthanized- perhaps she is adding to the problem releasing some pets. Maria wants a tax that might put the veterinary clinic out of business permanently. Things do not go well for the deceitful councilwoman- yet the clinic still seems in dome jeopardy Plenty of pet mayhem, along with a great deal of paperwork and some folks with ill intent A challenging setting for a young veterinarian getting to know herself and Italy I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
