Murder, Mystery, and Contemporary Fiction At Its Best In Nancy Mangano’s Novel A Passion For Prying!
A Passion for Prying is a mix of murder/mystery, contemporary fiction, and women’s literature. Follow private investigator Natalie North as she chases cheaters, crooks and boyfriends while wearing high heels in this modern day work of fiction.
Natalie North works as a licensed private investigator in her father’s Los Angeles PI firm, I Pry, Inc. Their specialty is adulterous partners. While no one can catch a cheating husband faster, and always in a great pair of high heels, Natalie aches to work a case of substance. When a murder-suicide takes place at a nearby diner, an intense desire to solve the case takes over Natalie’s rational thought process. Thanks to Cindy Hutchins, Natalie’s best friend, and Cindy’s fraudulent, get-rich-quick scheme, Natalie gets her wish to work a gritty, felony attempted murder case. Unfortunately, after missing two bullets propelled her way, the case Natalie investigates is her own intended death. Toss into the mix Natalie’s love quandary, torn between Darren McAllister, the hotshot LA Deputy District Attorney, and Jett Jaso, the hunky Hollywood actor, and Natalie’s life takes on a deeper web of intrigue, danger and passion. Chasing cheaters, crooks and boyfriends, Natalie manages to juggle it all, and keeps you laughing through all her escapades.
“I had so much fun writing this book and I want readers to have fun also.” Mangano says. “A Passion for Prying is a feel-good, fun read. It’s like eating a delicious, sinful hot fudge sundae — pure fun and indulgence.”
ForeWord Clarion Reviews gave a raving review, “Ingenious alliteration and luscious description pop up everywhere. The humor and multi-faceted characters keep readers prying to see what happens next.”
