Cross the Sopranos family dynamics with the darkly attractive Mr. Grey from The Secretary, mix in a little Romeo & Juliet (but with a happy ending) and you can instantly imagine what’s in store for you in this epic mafia thriller, A Favor for a Favor by Nat Chelloni.
Intrigue and mystery make A Favor for a Favor by Nat Chelloni a complete page-turner, yet it is the passionate romance between Julia and Domenico that make this a great read. Both hero and heroine are from different mafia families, both have done their best to put a distance between certain activities and their lives. Yet, fate has a way of drawing them back in. An incident near the end made me gasp, and then the wonderful happy ending made me sigh with satisfaction.
The story opens with the tragic killing of a teenager, the reason for his murder is to remain a secret for years. The unfolding of events and the different strands of this story are well-written and pulled together with seamless effort. Domenico is pulled into events he’d rather stay clear of as he turns detective to find the truth. Julia has already lost her first love and husband to a mob killing, she has no intention of falling for anyone remotely connected to the well-known crime families, but her body can’t help responding to the darkly dashing Domenico. Nor can she prevent her heart from loving, despite all her best efforts.
Nat Chelloni has crafted a well-written epic mafia mystery. The plot is like a full-bodied red wine – oaky ensuring it will pass the test of time, soft in its touches of love, and a flavor that makes you desire more. With a well-rounded plot and bold believable characters A Favor for a Favor by Nat Chelloni comes highly recommended by Chick Lit Café.
