**Now in development for a TV movie!**

For Franki Amato, life in New Orleans is anything but “The Big Easy.” When she met handsome bank executive Bradley Hartmann, she knew she’d finally found a man she could trust. But she can’t say the same for his sexy new secretary, who is about as trustworthy as Mata Hari and every bit as seductive. Meanwhile, Franki’s best friend and employer, Veronica Maggio, has named her the lead investigator in the murder of a gorgeous cosmetics CEO who was found lying dead in the master bedroom of a historic plantation home.
Now the pressure is on Franki to figure out what a bottle of pink lip gloss and the legend of a pink diamond have to do with the bizarre killing. The problem is that the plantation is notorious for being haunted, and Franki is less than enthusiastic about the prospect of meeting a ghost. Adding to her stress, her Sicilian grandma is up to her usual meddling antics—this time planning Franki’s engagement to Bradley before he’s even considered popping the question. As Bradley grows distant and plantation employees begin dropping like Southern belles during a sweltering summer, Franki turns to a psychic with a phobia of ghosts to solve the mysterious murders and her own relationship fears.

Prosecco Pink 4.8 out of 5 based on 1 ratings. 26 reviews.

Wow! I wasn’t sure how Traci was going to top Lemoncello Yellow, the first book in the Franki Amato Series, but, she certainly outdid herself! Intrigue, mystery, romance, fabulous characters, and a barrel of laughs is how I would describe Prosecco Pink. I actually laughed out loud when Franki woke up after a night of pirate partying and found herself in…well, I can’t give it away, but it was hysterical. Nonna and the clan from back home are a laugh a minute. I was reading on my lunch hour, the part about Nonna having a conniption, when I glanced at my watch, and was like, Yikes! I have to get back to work! You know a book is good when you are reading during your lunch hour and you almost forget to go back to work! If you like Stephanie Plum, you’re going to love Franki Amato. 5 stars, and worth every one!

Her second one is as good (maybe a wee better) as the first. I won't say things to spoil a great book for the reader but I will say ONCE YOU START THIS BOOK, IT WILL BE HARD TO PUT IT DOWN for any other function in your day. So get it, settle down for humour, twist, surprises and a bit of romance.

This book is hilarious. I was so looking forward to her next installment in this series and it was definitely worth the wait.. Every woman can relate, whether they admit it or not, to Frank and the jealousy she feels toward her boyfriend's secretary. The author paints such a detailed picture of every character and the setting that you can envision it such as she does The characters in this book are extraordinarily colorful people. The mishaps that Franki get herself into are unbelievably funny and keeps you laughing till the end. As far as the mystery goes Traci keeps you guessing and of course I guessed wrong. LOL Quick fun read!! Can't wait to see what Traci comes up with next for Franki and her gang of hooligans!!.

4 STARS Franki Amato is back in her second book. Franki is a P.I. working in New Orleans for her friend Veronica Maggio. She is smart, jealous, & has a funny family. Unless you have one like hers. Full of interesting characters. Bradley Hartmann has been dating Franki. He is a bank executive. He is always working late especially on days they have dates planned. His new assistant is a beautiful sexy woman who is trying to steal him away. physic has a message from a ghost for her, Franki is asked to solve a murder, There is a missing pink diamond, Land lady is a stripper. Her Sicilian grandma is trying to plan her engagement party( She is not engaged) behind her back. Her boss is behaving different. It all combines to be a fun light hearted murder mystery. It is full of troubles for Franki. Lots of drama ,action and murder in this book. Also lots of laughter. The setting for this book is New Orleans. also a lot is set in a old plantation with ghosts. I was given Prosecco Pink to read so I could give a honest review of it and be part of it's blog tour.

I received a complimentary copy of this book as a part of a book tour for a fair and honest review. I rated it 4.5 out of 5 Stars. Colorful characters, antebellum mansions and life in the Big Easy take center stage in Prosecco Pink, Traci Andrighetti’s newest addition to the Franki Amato Mystery series. Picking up shortly where the first book, Limoncello Yellow, left off, we find Franki knee deep in mud and fending off alligators while keeping an eye on Bradley Hartmann, new boyfriend and bank executive. When Franki’s boss, and best friend, Veronica Maggio puts her in charge of solving the murder of a cosmetics CEO, Franki finds herself on a haunted plantation fending off ghosts and trying to solve a crime involving pink lip gloss and employees dropping like flies. Ms. Andrighetti does a good job continuing to develop characters in this series; while Franki is a little bit odd, she’s a fun character who always gets herself in outrageous situations and you can’t help but like her. She also has an obsession with eating and food, something I can relate to. I also enjoyed how Ms. Andrighetti continues to develop the secondary characters in this series; especially Nonna, Franki’s matchmaking grandma and Glenda, Frank’s sixty something landlady, who has some of the best dialogue in the entire book.  While Franki’s love life with Bradley should be stable and secure; we see Franki’s insecurity kicked into high gear because of his new sexy secretary. While she swears she trusts Brad, she admits she just can’t trust a secretary who’s too perfect to be true. While dealing with her emotional issues, Franki refuses to deal with a haunted mansion and hires Chandra, a medium, to deal with the ghost. Only this being Franki, she’s hired a medium who’s afraid of ghosts. Fortunately they do find a way to work together and I really enjoyed meeting Chandra. Will Franki discover who killed the CEO and what the pink lip gloss and legend of the pink diamond have to do with her case? Will Franki’s Nonna and her romantic meddling send Bradley running for cover? You’ll have to read Prosecco Pink to find out. I enjoyed it and look forward to reading Franki’s next case.

It is taking me forever to finish this book. Based on everyone else's reviews, it should have been a book I couldn't put down. I wanted to like it, in hopes of a new author, a new series to devour. I love characters that make me laugh, I like witty dialogue. I have not laughed or even found myself smiling, so disappointed.

Fast paced with plenty of twists, turns, and laugh out loud moments, Prosecco Pink is a terrific follow up to Limoncello Yellow.

From the minute you start reading Prosecco Pink you will be hooked. Franki Amato is working in New Orleans as private investigator for Private Chicks. She is surrounded by an eccentric cast of characters. She is hired to investigate a murder at a haunted plantation. You will be laughing out loud with Franki’s antics. This is the second book in the Franki Amato series. I can’t wait for the next installment in the series.

I absolutely loved it!!  It had a little bit of everything.  Will definitely buy more books by this author!!

If you like your cozy mysteries with a big dash of humor, you will love this book. The characters of Glenda (the former stripper) and nonna are so well written you will find yourself laughing aloud as you follow their antics. Another big plus with this book is that the main mystery kept me guessing until the end and the secondary mystery was well plotted also. Several twists and turns in the plotline kept me guessing the whole way through. Franki is a very likeable protagonist and I look forward to solving several more mysteries with her in the future.

This is the first book by Traci Andrighetti that I have read. It definitely won't be my last! Franki is a private investigator. She believes she has found her Mr. Right in Bradley. Bradley has a new secretary that Franki does not trust. While Franki is investigating a murder, Bradley is becoming more distant. Can Franki solve the murder and discover why Bradley is becoming more distant? Read and find out! This is the second book in the series, but can be read as a stand-alone. I will definitely be going back to read the first book!

I did not read Limoncello Yellow prior to reading Prosecco Pink but I will get it now. I am hooked and will continue to read this series! Many wacky characters and very funny. I enjoy when there are multiple plots that keep me guessing. Great characters!

Fantastic! This book was fantastic! This is the second book in the Franki Amato Mysteries but can be read as a standalone. However, if you read this book you will want to read the first book Limoncello Yellow, which is currently in development as a TV movie. Frankie is a private investigator in New Orleans, and her boss Veronica, is her best friend. She has been dating sexy Bradley but doesn’t trust his sexy, sneaky new secretary. Franki and Veronica are hired to investigate the murder of a cosmetics CEO. Franki also starts investigating her boyfriend’s new secretary to prove to Bradley that she can’t be trusted. Franki also has to deal with her matchmaker and interfering grandmother. This book has it all, romance, mystery, suspense, humor, and a ghost. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series. A Review copy was provided to me in exchange for a fair and honest review. The free book held no determination on my personal review.

Absolutely loved reading Prosecco Pink! It's a great sequel that I could not put down. It moved quickly, kept me guessing, and had me laughing. I would absolutely recommend this!

I read the first book in this series and loved it. Prosecco Pink is even better. I literally could not put it down. These characters are real people if you catch my meaning. They interact in a way that makes you know them. I love Franki and Veronica. I love Glenda, who doesn't. I wish I knew someone like her. I would scream if I had a grandmother that tried to meddle in my life though. Without giving away the story, I am not sure I would have understood even at the end. Please write another one quickly!

Prosecco Pink is a great sequel to Limoncello.  All the characters from Limoncello are back and more.  Franki, Glenda and Veronica are so much fun as usual.  I loved this book.  I could not put it down.  It made me laugh out loud.  It made me angry.  I was jealous.  I personally wanted to handle some people.  Franki grandmother was a hoot and such a meddler.   I wanted to know what was up with Bradley.  Was he really ending things?  Would there be an engagement part for Franki and Bradley?  Are ghost and spirits real and do they really send messages from beyond? Will Franki make it to the next book?  I was taken to New Orleans although I live on the East Coast. If you read Limoncell, get this book.  If you didn’t, get this book and order Limoncello.  Prepare to be tired yet entertained from reading this book and don't miss the recipe at the end for the books namesake.  Have to try.
