Our Lady of Immaculate Deception: 07/16/11
Our Lady of Immaculate Deception by Nancy Martin caught my eye at the library for two reasons: the ugly cover and the title similar to Courtney J. Webb's Immaculate Deception.
This book is apparently the start of a new mystery series featuring Roxy Abruzzo, the niece of a Pittsburgh Mafia boss. She sort of wants to go straight but can't control her urges. She runs an architectural salvage business and that sometimes leads her into mysteries and other trouble.
Although I liked the first chapter, I didn't manage to get very far in the book. Roxy didn't grab me as a likable or believable character and she's the most realistic of all the quirky characters running amok in this novel.
Did not finish.

Can't win them all--the title intrigued me as well
