KISS CARLO by Adriana Trigiani & GIVEAWAY


Mozzafiato! La vie Est Belle!

Luscious! Love it!

I absolutely fell in love with the cover of New York Times, bestselling author, Adriana Trigiani’s new novel, KISS CARLO (Harper). How can you not? Trigiani has written sixteen bestsellers, including the huge hit, THE SHOEMAKER’S WIFE. In interviews, she’s said, she believes KISS CARLO is her best writing ever. I’m new to her books and once I started reading, I was captivated by the Palazzini and DePino families.

It’s 1949, WWII is over and anything is possible. Dominic Palazzini and his three son’s businesses are flourishing. Family members are happy and healthy, grandchildren are on the way. But a decade old feud over an inheritance settlement between Dominic and his brother, Mike threatens to tear the families apart. Wives, children and cousins are all caught up in the drama.

At over five-hundred pages, KISS CARLO is an epic saga about Italian-American families: their love, loyalty, creativity and hope for lives of prosperity in the golden post-war environment. KISS CARLO blossoms with romance, as long-buried family secrets are revealed, mistaken identities are unmasked, scores are settled, broken hearts are mended and of course, true love conquers all. KISS CARLO is a jubilee highlighting the effervesce power of la famiglia.
