LOS ANGELES, CA - January 31st, 2023 - In her debut novel, Dani Capello: Shadows of Men, author M.S. Izbicki delivers a gripping and heartfelt genre blend – part LGBTQ+, Coming-of-age, Romance, and Thriller – this book doesn’t nearly fit into a single genre but is a captivating and incredibly unique read.
A twist on a classic mob tale – the story is told from the point of view of a teenager living with a family involved in organized crime. We follow the main character, Dani Capello, as she navigates growing up, discovering her true self, and falling in love – all while dealing with the looming threat of mob violence.
A queer romance at its core, much of the book focuses on the budding relationship between Dani and her best friend, Emma. The girls convincingly move from friends to lovers, and their relationship is endearing, occasionally steamy, and at times bittersweet.
"Their relationship teems with passion and anxiety…Dani’s ties to organized crime cause constant dramatic tension even when the teen isn’t at home... Izbicki’s lively dialogue accelerates both the narrative and character development..." - Kirkus Reviews
"5 out of 5 stars. When I started reading this book, I didn't want to put it down... I would absolutely read another book by this author." - OnlineBookClub.org
"The romance at the center of the tale adds a lot of charm and sweetness to a story... This is a great option for anyone looking for an original coming-of-age story and queer romance with a distinctive twist." - BetterAuds.com
Dani Capello: Shadows of Men is available now in both ebook and print version on Amazon. Readers can also enjoy the ebook version for free with Kindle Unlimited.
