Daily Review: A Risky Christmas Affair by Nina Romano
December 2, 2019
The perfect way to spend an afternoon, rain or shine, and guaranteed to put a smile on your face.
Serena sits on the edge of her bed, brushing her shoulder-length, dark hair as she watches snowfall beyond the window, so unusual for Rome.
It’s Christmastime in the Eternal City, but all is not bright and merry. Her husband Walter is acting strange, shots are being fired, and then there are the jewels…
And so it begins – the suspense-filled romp A Risky Christmas Affair from internationally beloved, award-winning, From Women’s Pens author Nina Romano.
A dog named Crunch, a drunken Roman truck driver, and a British MP all conspire to bring this fast-moving tale to an end.
Amazon Review by Amy Miller:
A Risky Christmas Affair is a delightful short story with adventure and humor and charm. This is the first time I’ve read a book by Nina Romano, and it was more than worth the risk!
I love it when I can tell that the author had a good time while writing.
Overall, great characters and an intriguing storyline.
Read this book for some Christmas fun any time of the year!
Amazon Review by Sandy Signing In:
Like Paris, Rome is known as a city of love.
Yet, for Nina Romano’s strong, determined heroine, Serena Ray, love is a dubious commodity.
She questions her husband’s loyalty and his requests.
Throughout the story, Serena proves that she can take care of herself.
However, will her needs and desires ever be met?
The author is extremely adept at portraying a woman in the midst of a crisis and crafting a story that will keep you guessing to the end!
Amazon Review by Cynthia Hamilton:
Being a huge fan of Nina Romano, I was delighted to find this little gem of a story.
With her unbelievable range when it comes to genres, I guess I shouldn’t have been surprised by the deft way she conjured up this sprite of a comedy.
Set in 1980s Rome during the week before Christmas, Serena is naturally leery of having to hand-deliver enough diamond jewelry to make Elizabeth Taylor swoon to her husband’s “client” in London.
But that’s not the only thing that’s keeping her awake at night. Though Walter insists her fears are unfounded, there are too many omens pointing to serious trouble.
Reading like a screenplay for one of those zany sixties films like “Charade” or “Funny Girl”, the story runs at a gallop and is filled with oddballs and sinister portent.
It’s the perfect way to spend an afternoon, rain or shine, and guaranteed to put a smile on your face.
No need to wait ’til Christmas!
