Another Gia Santella kick-ass, take no prisoners, do what has to be done adventure! Kristi Belcamino has another hot one on her hands with non-stop action, romantic struggles and an ending that at first left me a little confused until I realized how exactly the book was ending!! I can't WAIT until the next adventure!!

Another great book in the Gia Santella Series. Gia is a badass woman who always puts others before herself and her own well-being! She is constantly helping the underdog and puts herself in harms way in order to follow through on promises. She is one person who I would want in my corner. This book continues to show how Gia helps others not worrying about herself. And, as she continues to put others before herself, her "love life" seems to suffer the consequences. She has so much emotional trauma from a previous relationship that she finds it hard to commit. I have to say this is one of my favorite books in the series so far! Loved the action, suspense and also loved how the story takes you on a wild ride! This is a definite page turner!

This is # 7 in the Gia Santella crime series. This one definitely does not disappoint. The characters are artfully woven throughout the series where the possibilities for spin off stories are endless. Gia is a goddess, capable of anything and most of all defending the vulnerable. Full of intrigue, twists and turns, and a dramatic flair that culminates in a closure of one chapter in Gia's life that leaves on in anticipation of her next crime adventure, hopefully #8. Reading for me is about escaping and letting go of job-related stress. These novels take you on a roller coaster ride of adventure, romance and mystery which equates to the perfect escape. Bravo Kristi!!! Cannot wait for the next destination.

Kristi Belcamino has led us on a roller coaster ride with her Gia Santella Crime Thrillers Series, and this book does not disappoint! Gia is forced to confront the people from her past that have haunted her the most, before she can move forward with her life. Fittingly…she’s able to do so on the Día de Muertos (The Day of The Dead.) Settle in and be prepared for some surprises!

What a thrill ride -- from the first page to the last (which, by the way, came way too soon). Gia Santella is the tough as nails defender and savior of those who can't do for themselves. This time around she takes on her nemesis who has taken low life drug dealer to new lows. Gia's fight for justice may cost her everything she loves and her life. I literally couldn't put this book down. I requested and received an Advance Reader Copy of this book. My review is voluntary and reflects my honest opinion.

Gia has a tough skin but a tender heart, especially when it comes to society's forgotten and ignored. Both sides of her shine through the pages of the 7th book in the series (which I was happy to read as an ARC). Even though I skipped a few books, it easily read as a stand alone novel with just hints - not spoilers - of what I missed. The pages practically turned themselves in this fast paced, action filled, Bay Area read.

Gia Santella is a strong, fierce woman who seeks justice to help others. Well developed plot and fast pace keeps you from putting the book down. Kristi has emotional, strong and believable charracters that keep you in suspense. Gia has lost Bobby the love of her life but now has strong feelings for James. Will she be able to move forward? Can't wait for the next book. joy943

I received an ARC copy. This is another thriller in the Gia Santella series. This novel will not disappoint. Gia is taking on a drug rehab facility that gets everyone admitted on opioids. As usual there is action and Gia will not back down from anyone. I have read the other books in this series. All of them want you to keep reading. I am looking forward to the next one.

Well, Belcamino certainly didn't let us down in this, the 7th book of Gia in “Day of the Dead”! I've just completed the ARC, and what a follow-up novel in a series – they keep getting better and better. The story takes place in Gia's regular stomping grounds of San Francisco, Ca. She still lives in the Tenderloin District, streaking about in her red Ferrari. She & James are together on a regular basis, but she cannot totally commit because she cannot get Bobby out of her mind. Young girls are going missing and turning up addicted to drugs; either dead, or dying shortly thereafter. A description comes to Gia that is strangely reminiscent of the King! For those of you who have been following the Gia series, you will remember the albino man with the shock of white hair. The man who is more monster than human in personality – well, it appears that he is back with a vengeance! And what he wants is Gia! He's been stalking her & he'll kill anyone necessary to get to her! I can't encourage you enough to pick up this novel, “ Day of the Dead”, by Kristi Belcamino, as soon as it is released on 11/2/18. It is so fantastic, from page 1, you won't regret it.

DAY OF THE DEAD. by Krista Belcamino. GIA. # 7 Reading this just before Halloween, will definitely set the Day of the Dead, celebration. With James again,the draw back was his mother and aunt, the tension causing her to smoke again, which he hated. Kraig King was back,and his Evil. Even her friend Darling knew, he was. Gia feels responsible, for what now lies in the hospital bed, she let him go. once, and not again.The other girl slipped out of the hospital, and she was the key to finding King. The rehab place,the girls had been at now empty. The leads were nothing, the more odd and obscure, the more she knew it was King. They are watching her, as she is watching them, a cat and mouse game. King is keeping the girls doped on opioids, everyday, she wonders why. For James, she loses everything she has loved. If she keeps a distance, will that save his life. Powerful, tense plot, forgetting to breath as you read. She goes beyond the ordinary, a loyal friend, or to those that need her. A story once again you won’t forget. Given ARC for my voluntary review and my honest opinion.

Gia is out for the evening with James, his mother and aunt trying desperately to make a good impression. Of course, things do not go as planned where Gia is concerned. After dinner and before the play, Gia is out smoking when she receives a call from Darling asking her to please come to the hospital. Gia tells James she will just meet them at the play and rushes to meet Darling. At the hospital, Darling explains a child who had been missing was found but in now in the ICU. The girl’s mother had been searching for a few weeks for her daughter and reached out to Darling for help. While standing outside the girl’s room, Gia notices a skinny girl in another room trying to hide. After speaking with this girl, Gia learns both girls were at a drug rehab facility which is far from normal. Gia and Darling start the search to find this facility and determine what is really going on. This starts another harrowing adventure for Gia which includes a former nemesis. While this is the 7th Gia novel, Kristi always does such a great job of putting in enough details for each book to be a standalone. Day of the Dead is no expectation as all key details regarding characters and relationships are included for any new reader to be up to date. For us faithful Gia followers, all the characters we have grown to love are back including Darling, James, Dante, Daniel, etc. As always reading a Gia story is like being surrounded by best friends and family whom you did not see often but when you do, it is familiar and welcoming. Day of the Dead as all of Kristi’s books not only provides a thrilling, fast pace read but also touches on a critical social issue. I personally cannot wait to go along with Gia on her next adventure to see how she will defeat her newest enemy.
