⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5
Wow! This story was great! I loved the story line and the characters of this story. It’s a mafia story, but a bit different take on it. I loved it!
Julia Leonardi married very young and was widowed very young as well. The only problem is that she is unsure of whether she’s a widow or a woman whose husband up and left her one night. Only a very few know the real story and a two of them are dead. One tragic night two young lives were taken, and the truth of their death was buried and avenged, but the blood spilled for their deaths was not the blood of those involved. Secrets have a way of coming to light, especially when those with more to hide start getting greedy and trying to pull people into their web.
Domenico Bonacci was close to Franky Boy, his younger cousin and his death and subsequent discovery of his body just about destroyed him. He loved the boy like a brother, and he wanted vengeance for his death. Even five years later he wants to know the truth of his cousin’s death and with little things coming to light, he may have his answers and vengeance soon. Dom loved and respected his father. Even with his father being gone, he still remembers the things his father told him and taught him, and they have made him a man that his father could be proud of.
I really enjoyed this story, and the characters were great. I loved the strength of Julia and the power that Dom had, even though his family was no longer mafia. He still has the clout and the respect that his father had with some of the family and his determination for justice as well his determination to finally have Julia as his are strong. This was my first read of Ms. Chelloni, but I will be reading more of her stories in the future. Hopefully more of this family. I would love to read Bran’s story as well as Vince’s story, and Val’s. I give this story a 5-star review and look forward to more books by Ms. Chelloni.
