I didn't love it as much as The Shoemaker's Wife but a good read.

I have been a longtime fan of Adriana Trigiani. I have enjoyed a lot of her titles over the years. I feel like Kiss Carlo is coming back to her original voice. This story takes place in South Philadelphia in 1949. Similar to Trigiani’s other titles, the characters are Italian American. The main character, Nicky Castone, is the nephew of Dominic Palazzini. The Palazinni’s raised Nicky after his mother passed away. Dominic owns the Palazzini cab and Western Union telegraph company. Nicky drives a cab for the company. Nicky also works in a local theater in the evenings. He has the opportunity to act on stage one night and finds that his real passion is acting. The way he goes about reaching his goal provides some comedy. The story was fun. I liked the characters the most, especially Nicky.

Pennie's Pick for July 2017!
"The sweeping multigenerational story effortlessly transports readers from Italy to the streets of South Philly to New York City, while the characters explore the ties that bind, tradition, wanting more from life, Shakespeare and much more. As they examine what they want for themselves, they also celebrate love, hope and family. Best of all? Trigiani tells this story with her trademark wit and joie de vivre."
