A VILLA IN SICILY: FIGS AND A CADAVER is book #2 in a charming new cozy mystery series by bestselling author Fiona Grace, author of Murder in the Manor, a #1 Bestseller with over 100 five-star reviews (and a free download)!

Audrey Smart, 34, has made a major life change, walking away from her life as a vet (and from a string of failed romance) and moving to Sicily to buy a $1 home—and embark on a mandatory renovation she knows nothing about.

Audrey is busy working to open the town’s new shelter, while also renovating her own problematic home—and dating again. With the help of friends, she begins taking in sick strays. But not everyone in town is grateful for her services, and she soon makes unexpected enemies.

When Audrey gets a tip about an injured dog near the coast and goes to find him—she finds the dead body of a powerful local instead.

Can Audrey, now a suspect, solve the crime and clear her name?

Or will her Sicilian dream fall apart?

A laugh-out-loud cozy packed with mystery, intrigue, renovation, animals, food, wine—and of course, love—A VILLA IN SICILY will capture your heart and keep you glued to the very last page.

Women who are able to leave their lives behind and move halfway around the world to start over are strong, confident snd clever. Yet Audrey behaved and sounds like a foolish teenager even though she’s well into her 30’s. Why does she giggle whenever a man speaks to her and lusts after any guy that’s at all good looking? That is not how women behave, or at least not women with the courage to start over in a country where they don’t even speak the language. She behaves more like a teenager at a mall looking for boys. To bad as I love the setting and premise, but Audrey just doesn’t fit.
