Product Description

Product Description

Hours before the opening of her career counseling practice, Gilda Greco discovers the body of golden girl, Carrie Ann Godfrey, neatly arranged in the dumpster outside Gilda’s office. Gilda’s life and budding career are stalled as Detective Carlo Fantin, her former high school crush, conducts the investigation. When three more dead blondes turn up, all brutally strangled and deposited near Gilda’s favorite haunts, she is pegged as a prime suspect for the murders.

Frustrated by Carlo’s chilly detective persona and the mean girl antics of Carrie Ann’s meddling relatives, Gilda decides to launch her own investigation. She discovers a gaggle of suspects, among them a yoga instructor in need of anger management training, a lecherous photographer, and fourteen ex-boyfriends.

As the puzzle pieces fall into place, shocking revelations emerge, forcing Gilda to confront the envy and deceit she has long overlooked.

A Season for Killing Blondes is the kind of quick paced light mystery novel that you want to pack with you to read on your holidays.
The main character, Gilda, in her early fifties, is a delightful character. Not only does the author, Joanne Guidoccio, provide the reader with an intriguing mystery to solve but she throws in an entertaining romance between Gilda and Detective Carlo Fantin, a man whom years ago she'd spent fantasizing over.
The intergenerational interaction between the characters, especially Gilda's busybody Italian family members adds spark to the novel. Here, and throughout the novel, the author shines in her ability to use dialogue.
I did find that I had difficulty keeping track of the numerous characters especially towards the end where the murders are explained but so many characters also increased the possibility of so many suspects to consider.
One of the intriguing parts of the novel was how the murderer got caught.
Because of the culinary connection at the beginning of the novel, the author ends with a half dozen dessert recipes. The pineapple cheesecake sounds really yummy!

Guidoccio creates her latest mystery with stylish yet easy to follow writing and a plot that keeps you on your toes, without becoming convoluted. The sense of community that runs alongside the mystery of the novel was quite engaging. I enjoy the way that Guidoccio subtly develops her setting while furthering the storyline itself.

The characters in this novel definitely made me giggle more than once. They combine with the mysterious plot in a way that makes the story fun, while also suspenseful. I couldn’t help but like these individuals as they invited me into their lives.

This was definitely a unique and fun novel. Guidoccio has created a mystery with a sense of irony that I really enjoyed.

Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.
