Publisher's Summary

It’s Mardi Gras season in New Orleans, but PI Franki Amato has too many problems to celebrate. A proven Sicilian lemon tradition hasn’t landed her a proposal, so her nonna has amped up the meddling to get her married, and pronto. 

Franki’s also under pressure to solve the strange murder of a family friend’s nephew, Nick Pescatore, who was found on a Mississippi River steamboat rumored to be haunted. When the sinister old boat sets sail on an overnight gambling cruise, Franki goes undercover with a motley crew, including a Mark Twainophile captain with a murderous past, a slimy galley chef with a mobster brother, and not to mention an ex-stripper landlady with a newfound career as a memoir writer and all-too public speaker. 

Franki has to figure out what missing Civil War gold, a playing card, and a mysterious woman on roller skates have to do with Nick’s death. If she doesn’t, it’s anchors aweigh for Franki - down to Davy Jones’ locker.

"Traci Andrighetti's Franki Amato Mysteries have me tickled pink! Her smart, sassy heroine, wacky cast of characters, and vividly original settings had me glued to the page. I can’t wait to read more from this author!" (Gemma Halliday, The New York Times best-selling author)

"Traci's writing is sharp and funny; the world she paints leaps off the page and makes the reader laugh out loud. A thoroughly enjoyable voice in fiction!" (Kristin Harmel, internationally best-selling novelist and author of The Sweetness of Forgetting)

Still loving this series

I loved the witty humor throughout this story and had some good laughs. I enjoyed the bloopers reel too. I can't wait to see what this duo comes up with next. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

It just keeps getting better!!

It just keeps getting better!! Galliano Gold by Traci Andrighetti, narrated by Madeline Mrozek is Book 5 in the Franki Amato mystery series, and oh, what a series it is! I'll let you read the plot synopsis on your own, so I don't give anything away...just know that it's filled with laugh-out-loud moments from start to finish. You are really missing out if you haven't yet listened to one of Andrighetti's books. From the first page, fans of cozy mysteries are sure to fall in love with Franki and the crew. While this could easily be read/listened to as a stand-alone mystery, I recommend you start at the beginning because once you get to know the characters, you will want to spend as much time with them as possible! They are such a hoot!!

We all know that audiobooks are only as good as the narration they provide. I've learned that sometimes even the best-written books don't always come across as such on audio, while others (that we may or may not be interested in reading), end up sounding like music to our ears. Why? The narrator, of course! Lucky for us, we get the best of both worlds in this series!! The performance by Madeline Mrozek is brilliant. I mean it...she is amazing! I'm 100% convinced she could read anything, and listeners would stay engaged from start to finish. Add an already well-written book to the mix, and you have a masterpiece! The hilarious voices she uses for each of the characters are the BEST, but even more impressive is her ability to switch between them in a smooth and effortless manner. She brings the characters and story to life in ways you can't even imagine, unless you experience it yourself. Narrators like Mrozek keep us coming back for more; as long as she continues to narrate, I'll continue to listen.

Without hesitation, Galliano Gold: Franki Amato Mysteries, Book 5 by Traci Andrighetti, narrated by Madeline Mrozek deserves 5 out of 5 stars across the board. The engaging storyline keeps you guessing, the New Orleans setting provides culture and local flavor, and the characters provide endless entertainment. Andrighetti and Mrozek are a force to be reckoned with! This dynamic duo is everything you could ask for...an audiobook lover's dream!

**Sidenote: Make sure to listen all the way to the end. The blooper reel is priceless!!

Thank you for reading my review. I hope it was helpful. Happy listening! :-)
