The Bootlegger's Goddaughter

A Gina Gallo Mystery

by Melodie Campbell

tagged: humorous, crime, women sleuths
Description

As Gina gets ready for her Christmas wedding, all is quiet in Steeltown. Then she's robbed, cousin Jimmy has a heart attack, and someone in the city has hijacked a transport truck full of booze. But who? And why? Gina knows bootlegging used to be a family business, but they stopped that in the '30s. Didn’t they?

Gina and Nico work feverishly to keep the latest bungled family matter under wraps, but the police are closing in. And, once again, everything points to the Holy Cannoli Retirement Home.

The Bootlegger's Goddaughter is the fifth book in the Gina Gallo Mystery series.

Editorial Review

"The Bootlegger's Goddaughter...is the best in what can be described as the finest compact mystery series out there. The writing is polished, the funny bits sneak up on you and you've been had then had again before there's time to recover...A miniature gem, the work of an author at the absolute top of her game. There is so much more to come from the imagination of this talented writer."
