Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Love and loss should not be this funny, but the entire Santora family has descended upon Marie again, just when Marie is sure she doesn't need them anymore. After losing Erica she has made a vow to be done with straight girls once and for all. Then her ex makes a house call and puts her willpower to the test, proving that desperate times really do call for desperate measures.

Meanwhile, Marie's sister Lisa has ditched her gay campground in favor of becoming a celebrity chef. Lisa makes a career for herself by channeling her dead Aunt Aggie and the spirits of dead relatives while she cooks. She sees them squabbling, insulting, and love-tapping each other to get fresh dibs on all the ingredients, and follows their lead. Lisa and her "ghosts" invent dishes like the heavenly "Pasta Fa Brawl" and the audience loves it as she takes talk shows by storm. After all, who says playing with ghosts from the past can't be fun and profitable?

From Jamaica to Camptown and now landing lakeside, these ladies are still serving the fun up Italian style: loud, lusty, and with lots of love and laughs.

Mari SanGiovanni was a Lambda Literary Award Finalist with her first book about the Santora family, Greetings From Jamaica, Wish You Were Queer. Her second book in the series, Camptown Ladies, was released in December 2011 and is receiving great reviews. Mari is a member of a very large Italian family.

Synopsis:

Marie Santora and her wild Italian family return for another hilarious romp through Rhode Island.
