Italian-born Mina Calvi lives in a mansion in idyllic Orange County, California with her protective older sister, Paola.

Unemployed again and aimless, Mina can’t seem to find her niche in her adopted country, but confusion and restlessness soon become the least of her problems. Someone is stealing from the software business owned by Paola and her husband, losses so great the business is sinking like the Titanic. And the strange death of a company employee turns out to be murder. Then, while, facing a loss so terrible she can’t bear it, Mina discovers an old family secret that turns her world upside down.

There’s some solace in the arms of her blue-eyed lover, amateur sleuth Brian Starr, but danger still stalks her at every turn, edging closer and closer as Mina tries to untangle the web of lies, adultery and treachery, and put her life back together.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

“Love Thy Sister” is everything a good mystery should be. It is filled with interesting “twists” and “turns” and just the right amount of “red herrings”. It is also fast-paced and well written with just the right amount of Italian culture thrown in.


I found this book to be exciting, full of heart, and most of all unpredictable. Fast moving plot, action, love, intrigue, betrayal……redemption. This is a book that you must read in one sitting and has surprises until the very end. Highly recommended.


Full of adventure, strong women and mysterious connections. The characters had clear and individual voices. It was a fast read that ended almost too soon, but the ending made me smile and say out loud, “How clever.”


Maria has written a delightful, fast-paced and well-plotted mystery. The characters are quirky and interesting, and there are enough clues to entice the reader to keep reading to the end.


Maria is a fantastic author and this book is a affirmation of such. Easy read, always exciting and full of flare. Definite recommendation for this book and this author.

About The Author

Maria Grazia Swan was born in Italy, but this rolling stone has definitely gathered no moss. She lived in Belgium, France, Germany, in beautiful Orange County, California where she raised her family, and is currently at home in Phoenix, Arizona–but stay tuned for weekly updates of Where in the World is Maria Grazia Swan?

As a young girl, her vivid imagination predestined her to be a writer. She won her first literary award at the age of fourteen while living in Belgium. As a young woman Maria returned to Italy to design for–ooh-la-la–haute couture. Once in the U.S. and after years of concentrating on family, she tackled real estate. These days her time is devoted to her deepest passions: writing and helping people find happiness.

Maria loves travel, opera, good books, hiking, and intelligent movies (if she can find one, that is). When asked about her idea of a perfect evening, she favors stimulating conversation, Northern Italian food and perfectly chilled Prosecco–but then, who doesn’t?

Maria has written short stories for anthologies, articles for high profile magazines and numerous blogs tackling love and life. She engaged her editorial and non-fiction skills for Mating Dance: Rituals for Singles Who Weren’t Born Yesterday. Her romantic suspense novels Love Thy Sister and Bosom Bodies are available at
