I reviewed the Esposito Series by J.M. Griffin, for Goddess Fish Promotions. The Esposito Series is three books in a series, featuring Lavinia (Vinnie) Esposito.

Now you can own the first three books in the sassy and suspenseful Vinnie Esposito Series by
J.M. Griffin!By day, Lavinia (Vinnie) Esposito is a criminal justice instructor at a college in Rhode Island. By night Vinnie is an amateur sleuth, solving murders while trying to avoid getting yelled at by her Italian father, her hunky protective boyfriend Marcus Richmond, and her sexy upstairs tenant,
the mysterious Aaron Grant.
“Yeah, someone knocked on the door, and when I got here to answer, there was nobody around
The first book in the series is For the Love of Livvy. Vinnie is investigating the murder of her aunt. The book starts off with the aunt already dead, with a mysterious package waiting for her. This was somewhat different from other mysteries I read. Sometimes you get the prequel to the murder, the murder, and the investigation. I do like this format. No one knows at this point how the aunt died or the motives behind it. Livvy had been gone for over a month now. Vinnie wants to investigate her aunt's death. Of course, there is a chemistry and sexual tension between her and a police man, but I am not telling which one. Dirty Trouble focused on someone stalking Vinnie, while Dead Wrong focuses on Vinnie's brother being possibly involved in a crime. Each book was about 150 to 200 pages, which isn't bad for a quick, daily read. Anyway, the books flowed well from one scene to the next. I enjoyed reading the series.
