What About the Men?

It’s the last week of the blog tour for Too Many Women in the Room. You can enter the giveaway for a $10 Amazon gift card here.

Since the book’s release, I have received many comments about the temperamental female characters that populate the novel.

Potential readers have also asked…

What about the men?

Three male characters play significant roles : Chief Detective Carlo Fantin, Chef David Korba, and Photographer Michael Taylor.

As Gilda’s love interest, Carlo Fantin appears throughout the Gilda Greco Mystery Series. A handsome widower with two children and five grandchildren, Carlo didn’t expect to fall in love again. All that changed when he headed up the murder investigation in A Season for Killing Blondes.  He and Gilda immediately connected, but ever conscious of his role, Carlo made it clear that nothing could happen until the investigation was over. At the start of Too Many Women in the Room, Gilda expresses concerns about the three-month break Carlo has instigated. But that doesn’t last too long…


David Korba could cook, and he could charm. One meal—that’s all it took to win Gilda Greco’s approval and a six-figure investment in Xenia, an innovative Greek restaurant near Sudbury, Ontario.  But there’s  much more to the charismatic chef who hails from Greece via the Danforth in Toronto.  Impressed and charmed by his looks and culinary skills, Gilda didn’t ask too many questions and later wondered why she kept her investment a secret from everyone in her circle.


A minor character in A Season for Killing Blondes, Michael Taylor managed to annoy almost every woman—with the exception of his wife—that he encountered. In Too Many Women in the Roman, he infuriated eight  women at a VIP dinner, he should never have attended. Often compared to Nick Nolte in his younger days, Michael’s fading looks and acerbic personality no longer endeared him to  women in his circle and beyond.  Unfortunately, he suffered the consequences of his inappropriate comments and lecherous behavior.
