Mystery & Suspense • 7.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Kathleen Garrett transports listeners to the Italian island of Ischia in the Bay of Naples to follow the adventures of Nonna Maria, an elderly widow who is well known for helping to solve the islanders' problems. Nonna's reputation and safety, however, are put to the test as she sets out to help a reluctant bride and to solve the mysterious drowning of a friend. Garrett's pitch-perfect narration helps bring Nonna to life, emphasizing her no-nonsense, unflappable personality, as well as creating a believable supporting cast of colorful characters. The narration also benefits from Garrett's authentic-sounding accents, which help build atmosphere, creating the ideal background for this cozy mystery.
