BR> 2 YEARS: LAUNDROMAT WENCH TOO MANY YEARS: MANAGER AT STRIP CLUB 1 NIGHT: MISERABLY FAILED STRIPPER
8TH GRADE - SPELLING BEE CHAMPION
------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Lacey Luzzi's rollercoaster of a life has been filled with the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. She just never expected the lows to be so... sparkly. After falling on her face during an attempt to follow in her recently-deceased mother's stripper-boots, Lacey realizes she's t cut out for life on stage. She sets out on a year-long investigation to find her true family, never expecting she'll find it with a capital F. With a rumbling stomach, a need for money (check engine lights don't fix themselves!), and a conscience that operates at 78% on a good day, Lacey is sucked into a whirlwind of Family secrets, hard-as-cement cookies, and mysterious, sexy men who unfortunately shoot guns, sometimes aimed at her face. The long-lost-granddaughter of Carlos Luzzi, the Godfather of the Italian Mafia, Lacey accepts her first assignment for the mob: finding fifteen million dollars of 'the good stuff.' Even after she enlists the help of her mouthy best-friend and her cousin, a technical genius and social disaster, she finds that going toe-to-toe with the rival Russian mob is more dangerous than expected. No one chooses their Family, but Lacey Luzzi will be lucky if she can survive hers. ** ** Lacey Luzzi: Sprinkled, is a full-length, laugh-out-loud, humorous cozy mystery with a strong female protagonist in the spirit of Janet Evavich's Stephanie Plum, albeit one working for the wrong side of the law...Note: Rated a strong PG-13 for sarcasm and mild language. No graphic gore or sex.
