#1 Amazon Humor Bestseller & #1 Amazon Cozy Mystery Bestseller Tony Soprano, meet Stephanie Plum. LACEY LUZZI RESUME ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- CURRENT: MOBSTER (in training) 2 YEARS: LAUNDROMAT WENCH TOO MANY YEARS: MANAGER AT STRIP CLUB 1 NIGHT: MISERABLY FAILED STRIPPER 8TH GRADE - SPELLING BEE CHAMPION ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Lacey Luzzi's rollercoaster of a life has been filled with the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. She just never expected the lows to be so... sparkly. After falling on her face during an attempt to follow in her recently-deceased mother's stripper-boots, Lacey realizes she's not cut out for life on stage. She sets out on a year-long investigation to find her true family, never expecting she'll find it with a capital "F." With a rumbling stomach, a need for money (check engine lights don't fix themselves!), and a conscience that operates at 78% on a good day, Lacey is sucked into a whirlwind of Family secrets, hard-as-cement cookies, and mysterious, sexy men who unfortunately shoot guns, sometimes aimed at her face. The long-lost-granddaughter of Carlos Luzzi, the Godfather of the Italian Mafia, Lacey accepts her first assignment for the mob: finding fifteen million dollars of 'the good stuff.' Even after she enlists the help of her mouthy best-friend and her cousin, a technical genius and social disaster, she finds that going toe-to-toe with the rival Russian mob is more dangerous than expected. No one chooses their Family, but Lacey Luzzi will be lucky if she can survive hers. ** ** Lacey Luzzi: Sprinkled, is a full-length, laugh-out-loud, humorous cozy mystery with a strong female protagonist in the spirit of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum, albeit one working for the wrong side of the law... Note: Rated a strong PG-13 for sarcasm and mild language. No graphic gore or sex.

Lacey, Clay and Meg are back-this time headed to...a wedding? Assignment Numero Dos for Lacey comes straight from the Godfather himself. When one of the Luzzi Family's low-ranking associates turns up dead, Carlos believes it may be the doing of the rival Russian mob, and he orders Lacey to find the killer. But every detail about the assignment is a little too neat, a little too tidy, and a little too good to be true. Could this really be an open and shut case, complete with a confession from the murderer? When Lacey's pumpkin-colored, body-building cousin Joey starts making trouble at his ex-fiance's wedding-the case starts unraveling from the inside out.Lacey's not sure what is worse: going face to face with a vicious murderer, ditching Auntie Nora's attempts to fill in the "plus one" on her invite, or finding herself locked in the same hotel as the hot, unavailable, but increasingly drool-worthy Anthony.Though most family gatherings are challenging, Lacey is afraid that this glittery Family wedding might just kill her.

From USA Today bestselling author Gina LaManna... It's all fun and dance, until a body turns up. When Misty Newman returned home to rural Minnesota, the residents of Little Lake were surprised—and not in a good way. Having skipped town ten years before with a scholarship in hand and the shiniest of futures, Misty took a nasty fall from grace when she dropped out of college to become a Hollywood burlesque dancer. Though she didn't hope for a welcome home parade or an invitation to join the Monday night knitting club, Misty never expected to become the number one suspect in a murder case! However when her landlord is found strangled by her fishnet stockings, things don't look good for Misty. To make matters worse, the town sheriff—Misty's ex-almost-fiancé—happens to agree. All Misty wants is to fix up her grandmother's cozy house, revive her struggling dance studio, and rekindle the old friendships she's neglected...but if Misty doesn't find out who's responsible for the death soon, she may just be next on the killer's list! "Gina LaManna had me laughing out loud from the very first page. Misty Newman is one sassy, sexy, smart heroine, and I can't wait to read more of her!" —Gemma Halliday New York Times bestselling mystery author
