Auntie Poldi and the Sicilian Lions by Mario Giordano




This is a tale of a middle age woman going through a personal crisis, struggling to maintain her youth and ideals and happy to share he opinions on all facets of life with even reluctant listeners.

Auntie Poldi moves to Sicily after the death of her beloved husband.   Buying a house overlooking he sea she becomes an eccentric part of the community.   The disappearance of her handyman leads her to romance and intrigue.

The book has it's moments when it is amusing but style wise it appeared to plod along with minutia overwhelming it's plot.  It is colorful and populated with interesting characters but it never really captured my interest.  It was translated from Italian and there may be cultural nuances that I missed.

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
