The Book

A Jesus-loving taxi driver. The Gay Mafia. A handsome landlord. Delicious food. The Count. Love. More food. Italy. France.

My story.

On the advice of a Jesus-loving taxi driver while on the New Jersey Turnpike, Christine leaves Pavlov Memento, her deeply flawed boyfriend of seven years, two days before moving to Italy. She nurses her heartbreak in an empty palazzo by the sea; then, with the help of her new friends – a group of men who call themselves the Gay Mafia – she moves to Rome and her new life begins. Follow her as she meets Hank Decker, the retired American cop who protects her when Pavlov tracks her down; her First Italian, the Cheese Lady; Alessio, the handsome landlord who leaves her tongue-tied; The Count, who whisks her away to Venice for Carnivale; and finally Cal, the Parisian-born Jersey boy living a strangely parallel existence in the South of France who will change her life. When everything goes awry and she’s forced to move back to New York, she searches desperately for a way to return to Rome, Cal, and her beloved Gay Mafia. Will she succeed? Christine’s real-life tale will make you laugh, make you hungry – and make you follow your dreams to the arrivals gate at your favorite destination.
