Publisher's Summary

Lacey Luzzi is all sorts of starred, striped, and spangled as she returns in Sauced, reunited with Meg, Clay, and Anthony just in time for the Fourth of July!

Unfortunately, the rapidly approaching holiday means Lacey can no longer ignore the Luzzi Family Festivities - a picnic held every year on Independence Day. Filled to bursting with limoncello, ice cream cake, and illegal Mexican fireworks, the event promises to be an utter nightmare.

Even worse? Lacey's inevitable birthday.

Just when things are looking as if they can't possibly go any more downhill, Carlos delivers a birthday present Lacey is not expecting: a bomb.

Rumor has it that someone around town has been importing materials to build a massive incendiary device, promising the Twin Cities one heck of a fireworks show - and not in a good way. Carlos instructs Lacey to work side by side with Anthony - a man who suddenly seems filled with secrets - to save the day.

As the humidity rises outside, the heat is on Lacey to locate the bomb and disassemble it before her hometown receives a fireworks display it won't forget.

If she can't find the explosives, there's a good chance Lacey might not make it to 30.

LOVE LACEY AND THE CREW!!!

Yes I would....I would listen to the whole series again!

What other book might you compare Sauced to and why?

Its a very fun mafia cozy mystery....it is totally hilarious...and I wont compare it!

Which character – as performed by Caitlin Kelly – was your favorite?

Lacey and Meg!!!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I totally laughed!!!! A LOT!!!! LOL

Any additional comments?

** I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **

This was so much fun! I was giggling from minute one and laughed out loud the whole way through! Lacey is kind of sent on a wild goose chase in this one, to distract her from a surprise birthday party that Meg is planning! As always we have the romantic tension between her and Anthony and so many crazy situations that you cant help but laugh, Meg is a good friend and is right there by Lacey's side the whole book and I loved every minute of it!!!

PERFECT NARRATION AND AN AWESOME FUN STORY, I RECOMMEND!!!!!!!

Great Series!

Any additional comments?

This is a great book; this is the fourth book in the Lacey Luzzi Mafia Mystery series written by Gina LaManna and narrated by Caitlin Kelly. Unfortunately, the rapidly approaching holiday means Lacey can no longer ignore the Luzzi Family Festivities - a picnic held every year on Independence Day. Filled to bursting with limoncello, ice cream cake, and illegal Mexican fireworks, the event promises to be an utter nightmare. Just when things are looking as if they can't possibly go any more downhill, Carlos delivers a birthday present Lacey is not expecting: a bomb. Rumor has it that someone around town has been importing materials to build a massive incendiary device, promising the Twin Cities one heck of a fireworks show - and not in a good way. Carlos instructs Lacey to work side by side with Anthony, a man who suddenly seems filled with secrets to save the day.

This book has a wonderful story and well developed characters. This book will keep you reading long into the night. This was such a great read and full of surprises.

The narrator Caitlin Kelly did a wonderful job with this book. She did a great job with the different voices of each character in this book. It was very easy to listen to in one sitting and I didn’t want to stop listening until the end.

If you are looking for a great book with well-developed characters then you need to listen to this book. I am looking forward to listening to the next book by this author and narrator.

They just keep getting better and better! I loved the antics that Lacey and Meg got into with this adventure. And the romance between Lacey and Anthony is slowly progressing!

Excellent story

Such an amusing story, well written and very entertaining filled with fun and wit with the odd emotional situation and a bit of adventure. Oh, did I forget? Romance too, which I absolutely loved.
Lacey Luzzi and her best friend Meg are sent on a wild goose chase to find a sauce but in true Lacey and Meg style they find something totally unexpected and of course fall straight into a very scary situation and it looks as if they won't be able to get out of that one unharmed. This all happens just before Lacey's 30th birthday.
Anthony plays a more romantic role in this story and we learn a bit more about his life before joining up with the Luzzi's.
Altogether a good combination of story and narration. Gina LaManna, the author, and Caitlin Kelly, the narrator, once more do an excellent job of bringing this book to life and making it a great piece of entertainment.
The audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost and this is my unbiased review.
