Publisher's Summary

Francesca "Franki" Amato is a straight-shooting rookie cop in Austin, Texas, until an embarrassing 911 call prompts her to take a job at her best friend’s PI agency in New Orleans. But Franki soon learns that solving crime in The Big Easy is no Bourbon Street party. Case in point, her first investigation involves the murder of a beautiful boutique manager who was strangled with a cheap yellow scarf, and her primary suspect is her client. When Franki’s not on the clock, she hopes to get cozy with a handsome bank executive named Bradley, but her meddlesome Sicilian nonna has other ideas about who she should date. As Mardi Gras approaches and the boutique mystery deepens, Franki must decipher the odd ramblings of a voodoo priestess, or she could end up single - and the next strangling victim.

Smart Cookies

I loved this book. So glad it's a series! I found the two lead characters Frankie and Veronica to be smart, believable and tough. I can't wait to get to know them and read more adventures of Private Chicks Inc!

Characters!

PI, ex-cop, NOLA, stripper, stress buster, humor, no gratuitous erotica,

What's not to like? Franki really wanted to be a cop, but her mentor was a sleazebag and her lover seemed to prefer lady wrestlers, so she packed up and left Texas for NOLA and her best friend's PI agency. The smothering Italian family had her phone number, though. The verbal humor is great, but the situational humor is guaranteed to have you snorting your caffeine! The publisher's blurb gives hints, but can't really do justice to things like the eccentric ex-stripper who still dresses for pole dancing, or some of the antics the characters get up to. A fun escape read!
I had the ebook, but forgot about it until I got the audio. Glad I waited, because Madeline Mrozek gave an absolutely stellar performance! She really enhances any book that she narrates.

Fun Mystery

If you like Stephanie Plum or even Agatha Raisin, you will no doubt like the rather irritating Frankie, who leaves the police force to move to NOLA to be a private eye. Her elderly stripper landlady is a great character, as is the Italian grandma. I will but the next book!

Limoncello Yellow -Terrific!

Also read this book in the past. I enjoyed the Audible version as well because it brought out parts of the book that I didn't remember or focus on when I read the book. The story is great as well as the narrator, Madeline Mrozek, who did a great job with the different characters personalities. Looking forward to future audio books from Traci Andrighetti!

Nice first in new series

Fun first book in a new series. I am sure this will be a big hit. It has all the goodies. Female PI's, a little romance, fast paced never boring story line. Add a dog and a lot of humor and you have a recipe for success. Madeline Mrozek does a great job of narrating this book. Will be waiting for the next adventure.

Enjoyable, Easy & Great Narrator

I have said it before in my reviews, Madeline Mrozek is one of the most enjoyable narrators out there today. I would not have finished this book if not for her narration.

Yellow never sounded so good

I really enjoyed this book, the cast and setting was just so colourful and I had no problem imagining the scenes unfold as I was swept up on the roller coaster ride that is Franki's life.
I read the book and then just had to own it as an audiobook too, so I could enjoy it again and again. I have even got my mum hooked on the series now too (as she came in while I was . Listening to it).

You would think being a policewoman was hard work but that is a piece of cake compared to being a Pi, dealing with family, cheating boy friends, voodoo priestess, ex strippers for landlords and sea food, dogs what more could you want in a matter. This book has it all in one humorous tale.

The narrator was very good and I hope she does the reading of the other books in this series , as I can't see me not having to own all the books.

Fantastic!

Would you listen to Limoncello Yellow again? Why?

I would certainly listen to this book again. It's funny, the characters are quirky, I liked the little bit of romantic drama and the mystery was interesting and entertaining.

What did you like best about this story?

I loved the characters in the story. There were plenty of laugh out loud moments.

Have you listened to any of Madeline Mrozek’s other performances? How does this one compare?

No, I haven't listened to any of her other work but I would be happy to do so.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, this was a book that I listened to in as as few sittings as possible. It had me hooked!
I can't wait to get my hands on the rest of the series!

Any additional comments?

I voluntarily received a review copy.
