“A madcap, hilarious story that takes up from the first page. Witty, over-the-top characters, sparkling dialogue, and scintillating sensuality combine to make this novel one of Ms. Riley’s very best. An absolute must read.” —RENDEZVOUS

Amazon Bestselling Author

HOT ON HER TRAIL . . .

Teresa Phelps is not having a good day . . . All the lovely though quirky doctoral candidate wants to do is to buy new towels for her aunt’s coming visit and make a quick getaway to her Galveston area beach house.

Then drop-dead-handsome Brit Charles Everett barges into her life . . . and abducts her at gunpoint from a Houston department store! Even more bizarre, Charles claims that Teresa is having an affair with his father.

Certain she has been kidnapped by a nut case, Teresa tries reasoning with Charles, to no avail. Worse yet, they are soon confronted by an outlandish brigade of thugs, thieves and lunatics, all of whom want to kill her!

Everyone seems to want something from Teresa, including Charles, but she has no idea what it is. Could it have something to do with her brother’s recent death in a freak accident?

Although Charles claims he wants to protect Teresa, the greatest danger may be to her heart, as the sexy, debonair Brit seems determined to win her over lock, stock and barrel.

What is Charles really after? Can he and Teresa solve the mystery before disaster befalls them? Or does he have an ulterior motive that may threaten her very life?

Albany Street Kid
by Carmen J. Viglucci
Rating: 4.5 Stars
Genre: Memoirs and Biographies
Price: $0.99 Save $3.00
Make sure price is still $0.99 before clicking “Buy”.

“Written with unabashed affection for the quirky characters inhabiting the pages, Viglucci’s straightforward, yet still charming, account of the Albany of his youth and the union of the two familial ethnicities achieves the goal of making this thoroughly modern reader wish she could have been there.” -Judith M.

Were the author’s early years in Albany, NY idyllic? No, but they came close, Viglucci suggests, until his 16th year when his 48-year-old father died in his arms as an older brother, Mike, comforted his mother and another, Andy, held down the family shop, The State News.

This, however, is not a book about family tragedy; in fact, humor peppers the pages as the retired newspaper editor and publisher recounts the exploits of his ten-year-old buddies and himself, denizens of Van Woert St. in North Albany during the Forties.

There are the ubiquitous sandlot baseball games, rowboat trips down the Hudson River, visits to the Paramount and Palace to see westerns and gangster movies, even to the city dump to try to outwit the rats.

There is also mention of the Irish and Italian connection with the challenging union of his mother, Helen (Nell)Fitzgerald with his father, Carmen A. (Jinx) Viglucci.

“If you marry him, you’ll end up with a lot of little dagoes running around,” warned Nell’s Irish Aunt Anne McCann. “And she was right,” the author points out, “Lots of little flaxen-haired, blue-eyed dagoes.”

From the Great Depression to the A-Bomb, the boys and girls from VanWoert Street took on all problems from Clark Gable’s need for a penny to wondering how babies came to be.

They wandered all the way from Broadway to Lark Street, encompassing The Diamond, which also brought into play, the famed Tiger AC and manager Jigger Hayes.

Viglucci and buddies, newspaper carriers, were wont to spread the pages of the Knick News to keep up with history such as the day the world met the deadly atomic bomb.

Another time, Big Tooth Calabro brought reports of a tragedy closer to home—about the man who died by shooting himself at home plate in the head–six times!

As Viglucci grew into his teens he took his turn working at the State News encountering bookies, nefarious sidekicks of political boss Dan O’Connell and NYC tourists who bought up souvenirs which the Albany ”hicks” imported from downstate and labeled with Capital stickers.

“…..grabs you from page one and whisks you back to 1938 Germany. It’s rare that I get so engrossed in a story that I feel as if I’m actually there.” – Steven D.

Heinz Schultz’s word could send a man to prison. Though only a youth of fifteen, he was strong, tall, and blond. The boys in his Deutsches Jungvolk unit esteemed him and feared him.

And they wanted to be just like him. Emil Radle wanted to be just like him.

A dedicated member of Hitler Youth, Emil was loyal to the Fuehrer before family, a champion for the cause and a fan of the famous Luftwaffe Air force.

Emil’s friends Moritz and Johann discover a shortwave radio and everything changes. Now they listen to the forbidden BBC broadcast of news reports that tell both sides. Now they know the truth.

The boys along with Johann’s sister Katharina, band together to write out the reports and covertly distribute flyers through their city. It’s an act of high treason that could have them arrested–or worse.

As the war progresses, so does Emil’s affection for Katharina. He’d do anything to have a normal life and to stay in Passau by her side. But when Germany’s losses become immense, even their greatest resistance can’t prevent the boys from being sent to the Eastern Front.

Laurent Fletcher has to admit his life would be a whole heap better if there was woman in it.

His kids are running wild, and his dog is acting crazy; he’s been finding it tough to juggle everything since his wife died, and run his successful custom-built furniture business. But maybe there is a solution that won’t demand any emotional input from him: hire a female to whip his turbulent household back into shape.

Emma Peabody is a British nanny, looking for a new life in the New World. When she arrives at River Bend and finds two small motherless children, a miserable pet and a man who’s placed his emotions in the deep-freeze, she realizes she’s joined a broken family and it will be down to her to put it back together again.

The kids and the dog are easy—all they need are routines and love. Their father is something else. Laurent isn’t about to drop his guard and let Emma work her magic—and it doesn’t help that she finds this dark, brooding man incredibly attractive…
