Description

In The Goddaughter Caper, Gina Gallo finds herself embroiled in her family's shady dealings when a body turns up at her uncle’s restaurant. But it’s just the beginning of her problems. Strange things keep happening in Steeltown. A body shows up in the trunk of Gina’s car. Another is mistakenly shipped to her cousin Nico’s new store. And then Gina and Nico stumble across a stash of empty coffins! Worse, everything mysteriously points to her own retired relatives from the Holy Cannoli Retirement Home.
Gina is determined to get to the bottom of it. But she’ll have to act fast, because the police are right behind her.
This is the fourth in a series featuring Gina Gallo, who wants nothing more than to run her little jewelry store but, try as she might to escape it, somehow Gina gets drawn into the family business, with hilarious consequences.

Editorial Reviews

"This caper from Campbell is just that: ridiculous relatives running around and covering up crime after crime. A good read."

— Kirkus Reviews

"The fast pace will keep reluctant readers engaged from beginning to end...Campbell's sense of humor is infectious, and readers will find themselves laughing out loud and wanting more."

— VOYA

"Campbell creates a page-turner that is fast moving, exciting and filled with twists and turns. As the reader gets involved in the story and gets that familiar feeling, Campbell throws in another complication. A good read. Highly Recommended."

— CM Magazine

“Funny, zingers-a-plenty…Campbell keeps it fresh…The best yet.”

— Canadian Mystery Reviews

"Campbell's writing is always funny. The Goddaughter series, of which this slender novella is the fourth volume, is part of Orca Books' Rapid Reads imprint, making it a fast, fun read."

— Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine
