I have previously read all the books in this series, one at a time as they came out. But I enjoyed reading the whole series straight through even more, and seeing how the characters grow gradually more capable and more confident in their abilities as independent business women and business owners as they learn from their own efforts and from their new friends in the city that they moved to after Vinnies unexpected death. They even gain confidence from making mistakes, because they have learned how to fix their mistakes, and how to plan better, so they can be less likely to make mistakes in the future.
It is wonderful to read about two women who were previously leading very sheltered lives learning how to advocate for themselves. But it also makes clear that it is better to teach young girls the skills that will make them well prepared to be independent adults. Daughters need to learn business skills, and boys need to learn household and child raising skills, even if they choose to live traditional roles as adults. At least they can be more supportive of their spouse, and also be ready to handle what needs to be done in a pinch.
I thoroughly enjoyed these 10 delightful COZY Mystery Books about Savannah, Georgia. I’m so glad I found these clean mystery books written with great character development.
If fact when I knew the end was getting close, and after reading these 10 books, the people in the books became part of my family. I am really going to miss them, even Elvira!
The savannah historical part was very interesting and the light dancing around the Mafia part giving it a lighter fun touch worked so well in these books.
Thanks for writing about women who are interesting, lovely, determined snd intelligent to get things done when necessary. And also showing how women and men of different ethnic groups can come together to make the best of a situation.
I’m hoping to find a long list Hope Callaghan’s books that I can cozy down with for about a week to read and enjoy,
Friendly fun with a Mob widow relocated to Savanah with treasure, property and not a few corpses and mysteries, stir in some adult children with their own issues, some crazy tenants, neighbors and of course crooks, and you have these fun fast cozies! Plus recipes and romance and Savanah!! Five Stars!
This box set should have a caution: warning can cause binge reading. A mafia widow and her daughter move from New York to Georgia to start a new life and to honor a deathbed promise to her husband. This box set tells of the adventurous and sometimes dangerous transitions of the widow and her adult daughter.
Carlitos is a new mafia widow with sons in the “family” ad her husband’s last words are to get them out and away. With daughters help and her husband’s security deposit box, she is able to slip away and start a new life. A gutsy lady with her daughter’s help is able to start a new life and slowly get her sons out. Still has to work on her eldest son but she maybe able to accomplish in the future. A very interesting story can’t wait for the rest of the series!
