Maria Grazia Swan has created another page turning read.  I thoroughly enjoyed  “Love Thy Sister,” the first book in the series, so I was interested in the sequel, “Bosom Bodies”.

I love a series of books that can be read on their own, but I always find that reading them in succession is more fulfilling. I’d encourage you to read “Love Thy Sister” first, because it will give you a clearer picture of Mina Calvi and where she has come from.

Mina Calvi is still dealing with the loss of her mother, and her boyfriend, Brian, is out of town; she is feeling at loose ends.  She offers to help out a friend, filling in for her where she is going to work at a restaurant, while she is out of town.  Maria puts on a wig, a voluptuous padded bra and a uniform with a glitzy top that Ginger had given her to wear.  She poses as Ginger and goes to work.

One Saturday night, she discovers she has a flat tire on her car when she leaves the restaurant. She doesn’t have a spare and the hour is late.  Diego, a kitchen helper, who makes her feel uncomfortable, offers her a ride home on his motorcycle.  She has no other option except to walk in her high heels, so she accepts and waits while he locks up the compound.

The next morning the body of the restaurant manager is discovered on the beach.  She is the victim of a hit and run.  To her shock and dismay, Mina’s VW Bug is impounded as the vehicle used in the crime, even though it was still sitting in the locked compound with a flat tire when she went back to the restaurant that morning.

Mina finds herself thrown into a frighteningly dangerous world of betrayal, violence, murder, and diamond smuggling.  The police are watching her. The mob is stalking her. They believe she has something that they want, and she has no clue what it could be.

And then, there is Diego.  Who is he?  He works his way into her life, into her heart, but can she trust him or is he using her in some nefarious plot?  Is he a protector or a villain?

This book has danger, intrigue, romance, humor—it was a great read.  I really loved it, and I’d recommend it.
