What Hides Behind The Mask-The Venetian Masquerades, Book One

By Robbi Perna

Romance, Crime & mystery | eBook


A Mask Can Hide a Face or A Background of Secrets. Venice, the ancient Italian city famous for love and intrigue. Doctor Chiara Mackenzie Davis and her stepbrother Chas Weston find this out first hand when they must travel to Italy and discover the reason why Francesca Severino, Chiara's 84 year-old grandmother, travels to Venice without telling anyone. Chas needs to know the answer and he can't ask Francesca. She checked into the luxurious Cipriani Hotel—something at odds with her habitual thrift minded outlook—where she died the next day. The situation becomes more complicated when Chiara meets family she didn't know existed. However, the Cavaliere Orlando Paladino and his son, Father Girardo Paladino have their own questions about Francesca's visit. When Girardo's cousins show up, the atmosphere thickens with intrigue, which boils over with the arrival of Chas's mother, who comes to Venice in time for the funeral. Chiara and Chas find the answers they seek. Along the way, they must also find the answers to their own personal mysteries and discover the person who hides behind the mask each of them wears.

Thanks for stopping by to get acquainted. I was born in Denver, Colorado, the oldest of four children in an Italian-American family. As the only girl, I gained a unique insight on the Italian male psyche over the years. My stories often reflect my Italian heritage and the traits many Italian men and women exhibit. At a recent reunion, a classmate approached me and remarked, "I remember two things about you: you always wanted horses; and you were always writing stories." I happily confirmed I had owned Arabian horses for a number of years before moving away from Denver and I still write stories. I now make my home in central Florida where snow is a figment of my overactive imagination and Santino the Parti-poodle manages the household between naps while I write. I bring a diverse perspective to my stories and am the author of thirty-one published works that include novels, short stories, articles, essays, and editorials. The Florida Writers Association selected my historical romance, My Heart Still surrenders, as a finalist in the 2014 Royal Palm Literary Award competition. My professional memberships include Romance Writers of America, Florida Writers Association, Savvy Authors, and the Society for the Promotion of Roman Studies. I invite you to step into the ambiance of my stories and enter the worlds of magic, suspense, history, and romance.
