Auntie Poldi and the Lost Madonna by Mario Giordano ~ a Review

by Donna Huber


I discovered the Aunti Poldi series in 2019 when I picked up book 1 Auntie Poldi and the Sicilian Lions on the discount rack. I read it in the pool that summer and was intrigued by it being a foreign language cozy mystery. I have read a few translated thrillers but most of what I come across is literary fiction. You know I love cozy mysteries and I was excited to see another culture's take on the genre. The book was a bit different and I had some trouble getting into it. For most of the book, I couldn't quite figure out if I liked it or not. But by the end, I had really come to like Auntie Poldi. So I was excited to see Auntie Poldi and the Lost Madonna at Netgalley.
