Publisher's summary

Critics call the series “a laugh-out-loud, whimsical adventure full of tasty Italian dishes and adorable cats!”

Anna Romano is a middle-aged, Italian woman who is also a successful published author, a cat-mama, and an excellent cook with a hankering for Italian cuisine. She lives by herself in her quaint house, in a quiet community, with a white picket fence in Central New Jersey.

When she is not writing her next book or hosting book-signing events with her publicist, she is cleaning litter boxes and baking Cannolis…but never at the same time, of course!

In this first installment, on a typical day in Anna's somewhat-perfect life, a book-signing event turns her world upside down. Is it a case of mistaken identity or was she just being paranoid?

After being stalked for weeks, Anna quickly finds herself literally "tied up", fighting for her life, and desperate to get back home to her cats; all while unwittingly falling in love with the detective who was trying to save her. How she finds her way out of this mess is anyone's guess!

Find out more about Anna and the dangerous cases of murder and mayhem she "haphazardly'"gets herself into, in the new Anna Romano Mystery Series.

A Mysterious Kidnapping with a Twist

Ms. Cheryl Bannerman creates a delightful protagonist in the first installment of the Anna Romano Mystery Series. Anna is a famous author, fabulous Italian cook, and cat lover. The relatable layers of this character are artfully teased out with her interactions with the actions occurring around her and the detective assigned to investigate her stalker accusations.

Anna’s sense of humor is front and center with her cats, while her secrets are hidden even from the detective, who makes her awareness soar. Detective Solace likes her cats enough to help care for them when Anna is missing. He is the perfect offset to her humorous side with a genuine fondness for her cooking. The twists and turns in this light-hearted mystery keep the pages turning. Copies of the recipes interweaved throughout the story would be an ideal bonus.

The narration of the story by Robin Waters was good. The pacing of the delivery was a bit sluggish in places, but there were no significant audio issues. It is a fun start to a series that will undoubtedly strengthen over time. The plot premise is good, with an ending that caught me flatfooted—a good series for those who desire a quick, enjoyable escape.

There were no issues with the quality or production of this audiobook.

Cute

This story was totally different from my normal “read”/Audible but I did enjoy it. The short length made it perfect to listen to when I was working in the kitchen. Kinda unusual storyline but I anticipate listening to more like it.
