"Romantic suspense tour of Italy"
Following her divorce and at the encouragement of her best
friend, Californian Anne Marie Jackson travels to Sorrento,
Italy to visit Giovanni. Back in what feels like ancient
history in high school, Giovanni, an exchange student, was
the most popular stud in school, but he liked Anne Marie.
He invited her to come to Italy and now years later she
takes him up on his offer.
However, Giovanni fails to arrive at the hotel rendezvous
point in nearby San Gervase. Instead undercover law
enforcement official Marco Moretti bothers Ann Marie
offering to be her guide when in fact he is trying to
capture Giovanni, a master criminal known for smuggling
diamonds. Marco believes that Anne Marie is the latest
female recruited by Giovanni to break the law as a smuggler
though he finds her veneer of innocence disconcerting and
has no evidence that she is even a dupe of the felon. As
he tries to use her to capture the sly thief, Marco falls
in love with the American who shocks herself by
Readers who enjoy a fun police procedural romance starring
thirty-something characters will appreciate THAT'S AMORE.
Anne Marie is a delightful lead protagonist and the
mysterious Giovanni will turn a heart or two until his true
colors surface. Though Marco seems too pushy to be
successful, readers will enjoy Carol Grant's romantic
suspense tour of Italy.
