The Italian Connection | SFLUXE 2

The Italian Connection

Look out, Danielle Steele, there’s a new gal in town. And she drives a Ferrari.

I went to the book launch on Thursday, April 12, of Jill St. Anne‘s latest, “The Italian Connection.” It was a festive evening, as it also happened to be the birthday of the author’s lovely mother, Judy Fairchild.

Judy was beaming as she watched Jill inscribe the books for fans and friends, such as Sophie Azouaou, Mark Calvano and Joel Goodrich, who had lined up at Emporio Rulli Gran Caffe. The event was hosted by Claudia Ross, elegant in a long black dress that Madonna designed for H&M (you never would have guessed it was from H&M!)

The book is fabulous reading, part romance and part intrigue. I’m halfway through it and have a hard time stopping myself from skipping ahead to find out how it ends!
