Publisher's Summary

Now in development for a TV movie!

Private investigator Franki Amato has just turned 30, and she feels anything but festive. For starters, she can't have cake because she's given up sweets, and one of her teeth is torturing her. To add insult to birthday injury, she has to investigate a surreal strip club homicide - with her 60ish ex-stripper landlady. Then her Sicilian grandma crashes the New Orleans non-party and insists that she steal a lemon to land a husband. Unfortunately for Franki, the man she has in mind has his mind somewhere else, and their relationship seems to have soured.

Adding to her troubles, she has to figure out what a missing amber pendant and a mysterious amaretto bottle have to do with the murder, not to mention why she's being followed. When a second dancer goes down and a third is threatened, Franki turns to a weird witch to crack the case and cancel a curse before someone blows out her candles for good.

Franki Amato Mysteries:

  • Limoncello Yellow (Book One)
  • Prosecco Pink (Book Two)
  • Rosolio Red (Holiday short story)
  • Amaretto Amber (Book Three)

    "Even better with this narrator!"

    murder-investigation, stripper, italian-customs, nola, pi, witches, voodoo, snarky

    It's her thirtieth birthday, she thinks that she is cursed, and that feeling is borne out by being descended upon by her mother and Italian grandmother hassling her about her unmarried state. Then there is a murder at the strip club favored by sexagenarian landlady, and her boyfriend being sabotaged at his bank! The publisher's blurb gives hints and clues but can't begin to prepare you for all the situational and verbal humor. No spoilers here, but the investigation is so convoluted, and each suspect is so easily believable. The antics of family, friends, and the crazy landlady would be unbelievable anywhere but in NOLA.
    Madeline Mrozek really brings each character alive and can snark with the best. I'm still totally amazed that she doesn't crack up narrating this author's books!

    Any additional comments?

    With Franki on the case what could go wrong or wright...... This is such a fun story (and series) once you start it, its hard to put down. Franki's nona and mom come to town in the middle of the case and make thinks even crazier! Dealing with a club full of strippers, another full of drag queens, an ex pimp and a moody detective its just another day in the big easy! Of course nona and mom must met Glenda, Franki try's to avoid this as long as she can... This crew will keep you on your toes and laughing all the way to the end. Great book and narration.

    "Great Read"

    I found myself listening to this book nonstop. I really enjoyed the twists and turns and never saw the ending coming. Traci Andrighetti did a great job of keeping the suspense going.

    "HILARIOUS!"

    The audiobook Amaretto Amber: Frankie Amato Mysteries, Book 3 by Traci Andrighetti, narrated by Madeline Mrozek was such a fun book to listen to! I laughed over and over! Even though it is Book #3 in the series, it was the first one I listened to. I don't think that it spoiled anything for me, but I'll find out because I'm dying to now listen from the beginning!

    I think the book would also be good to read, but definitely the narration in this one made it so much more enjoyable. Madeline Mrozek was FANTASTIC! Seriously, it sounded like there was more than one narrator, but really, it was just her...for all the characters. Wow! Awesome job! She is phenomenal! I plan to follow her narration and get her other books, 100%! I loved listening to her. I don't think there was anything I didn't like. Her volume, pace, voices, inflection, everything was top notch! I highly recommend you listen to her work if you haven't done so yet. I see that she also narrates Book 1&2 in this series, so I can't wait to start them. :-)

    I rate this audiobook 5/5 stars across the board. I was entertained throughout; the characters are so funny and the storyline was awesome! I would categorize this as a cozy mystery but a bit on the raunchy side of cozy (some content and word choice)...but still clean (no sex or violence). It was right up my ally...hehee! Keep up the great work ladies...this book was amazing!

    Thank you for reading my review. I hope it helped. :-)

    "A cozy mystery with a twist of humor"

    Warning: this book contains topics of witchcraft, voodoo, spells etc. That can be problematic for some, so I wanted to mention that these are a main theme.

    This book is an adventure with the funnest cast of characters! Glenda becomes an honorary PI to help solve a death at a strip club, and it's truly comical. Madeline does such a wonderful job narrating & bringing all these characters to life. She had quite a task with this book & it was done perfectly. I could picture each and every character & it was such a treat to transport into this wild and funny world. This is a cozy with a twist of humor & I highly recommend it! I can't wait to see what Frankie is up to next!
