"I am very pleased how all of the issues are juggled skilfully and there is no feeling of confusion or loose ends. I'm anxiously awaiting Julie's next work which will hopefully unravel all of the mysteries and bring a happy conclusion to Lily's love life. My honest and sincere recommendations for this book. "

"When employee turned movie star's girlfriend Lily, an American living in Italy, is sent on a mission from the Italian government things get spooky. Lily's goose chase is interrupted as she deals with not only her annoying soon to be ex-husband but the arrival of someone who she didn't expect and the bad news he brings with him. A fun look into the life of an expat woman whose colorful word choice and unlikely companions are sure to please! "

"I have to say that the humor is consistently and effortlessly funny. The book is a wonderful way to spend your free time, leaving you in a much better mood than when you first sat down. The characters are varied and realistic. The depictions of fame and the famous on ordinary people ring spot on. And the accurate descriptions of Italians of all stripes speak of personal experience, not of cliches."
