Why I Read it: Love stories about Italian families and the mob!
I really enjoyed this story and wish that it would be made into a TV series!
The characters were so real, and being Italian myself a lot of the stories she told about her family were pretty familiar to me. :)
Memorable Quotes: There were so many quotes I didn't save! One that had me cracking up was about the Jimmy Choos "falling off the truck"!
Description from the publisher:
Goombah to Gucci
As the only granddaughter among seventeen grandsons of one of New York's refuted Mafia dons, Teddi Gallo has been surrounded by overprotective men all her life. . .not to mention those FBI agents tailing her family. But now, determined to live her own life, she has decamped to Manhattan with dreams of making it n the brutal restaurant business.
Soon, however, she is finding her dinner plate is more full as she juggles an old-money, news-anchor boyfriend, a devastatingly handsome FBI agent trailing her 24/7, a nervous accountant concerned her business is failing and her cousin Tony acting as her bodyguard. Toss in bringing her new beau home fro Sunday dinner and trying to explain the hundred pairs of stolen Jimmy Choos in her Uncle Vito's living room. . .and Teddi Gallo's already chaotic life is made all the more messy. Maybe a few well-hatched plans, a bit of matchmaking and a dose of Mafia Chic will get her out of this jam.
