Editorial Reviews

CM Magazine
"[Campbell has] intertwined a bit of comedy with the suspense and danger. Gallo’s family history added in the mix makes for a very good read...A novel that is very difficult to put down."
A Prairie Girl Reads blog
"As funny, if not funnier, than The Goddaughter. When Gina's mob family comes together the adventures become crazy, illegal and entertaining. I'm not sure I remember a time that I laughed harder within such a short time span...With every story I love this family more and more. They put the "fun" in dysfunctional...Another home run from Canada's funny girl, Melodie Campbell."
The Hamilton Spectator
"A non-stop switchero tale...By the time you've reached Union Station, all that glitters is real gold. Short, sharp and full of what makes a Rapid Read feel like a great cup of coffee."
VOYA - Mirta Espinola
The Goddaughter's Revenge is a mysterious story about a jewel heist with a twist. Filled with Italians and a country singer best friend, this story delivers a lot of tongue-in-cheek one-liners and a type of slapstick comedy one might expect in some mobster movies. The main character, a jewelry store owner, and her assistant embark on a quest to switch out fake gems for the genuine ones. In the end, all is solved and the culprits are held responsible for their wrong-doings in old-style mobster fashion. Campbell weaves a light, airy story with witty humor and a heroine with a likeable personality. This easy read has all the elements necessary to interest any reader, as well as teach lessons about literary elements like setting, plot, and characterization. It is a topic of high interest and readers will want to continue reading. This story will elicit a smile and a laugh or two. Give this to readers who enjoy a deliciously funny tale.
