Which is more powerful: romance or revenge?
Mafia princess Angelina Amaro has only ever loved one man - and even that lone affair was never consummated. Why not? Because her would-be lover, Sal Martucci, fled into the Witness Protection Program after ratting out Big Paul, Angelina's father. Not a great way to begin life with the in-laws....
But when Sal is discovered, a decade later, working as a bartender in Key West, the wildly dysfunctional Amaro clan heads south - one member with love on her mind, the others with murder in their hearts. With an improbable team of allies - Aunt Rose and Uncle Louie and the relentlessly romantic and flamboyant Michael-Angelina sets out to quench her passion before Daddy quenches Sal. And before you can say Romeo and Juliet, the Southernmost City becomes the setting for a touching and hilarious tale of love, the Mob, underdogs rising, bad guys redeemed, and, oh, some incidental cross-dressing.
