Praise for The Neapolitan Sisters
"Drives us straight into the heart of a conflict-ridden family and their community . . . There's love behind this book--and painful honesty, too."
--The San Francisco Chronicle

"Candela delivers a funny, poignant story . . . Richly layered."

"Margo Candela returns with a bang. In The Neapolitan Sisters, she explores with wit, wisdom, and humor, the strong bonds of sisterhood and delivers a powerful story of family drama."
--María Amparo Escandón, New York Times bestselling author of L.A. Weather

"Candela delivers a complex and engaging look at the bonds of family in The Neapolitan Sisters. Much like Neapolitan ice cream, you'll be drawn in to explore the different psyches of three very different women dealing with life issues and finding the love and support that family can offer. A great read!"
--Caridad Piñeiro, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of The Family She Never Met and South Beach Love

"Margo Candela deftly delivers an engaging dynamic page-turner of a book about the interior lives of three strong women. The Neapolitan Sisters are each a delight, as vibrant, selfish, beautiful, ever-shifting, and redeemable as the city of Los Angeles herself. I would follow them anywhere--even in rush hour traffic."
--Staci Greason, actor, award-winning screenwriter, and author of All The Girls in Town

"In The Neapolitan Sisters, Margo Candela writes a provocative and humorous novel that delves into the complicated bonds of family, finding one's own identity, and the painful joys that come with loving difficult people."
--Reyna Grande, national bestselling and award-winning author of The Distance Between Us and A Ballad of Love and Glory

"Margo Candela made me ugly-cry for these sisters and laugh hysterically when I recognized my life in theirs. The Neapolitan Sisters was for me, a belonging pill in a book, and about all the things that make life worth living, despite it all."
--Anjanette Delgado, award-winning author of The Clairvoyant of Calle Ocho and The Heartbreak Pill

"Beautifully written and full of heart, The Neapolitan Sisters offers an insightful look at relationships of all kinds--but mainly the one that exists between sisters. I loved watching each of the three women on their journeys, sometimes separate and sometimes together, as they butted heads, found their way, and, ultimately, looked out for each other. Real, funny, and moving!"
--Suzy Krause, author of Sorry I Missed You

"Vivid, relatable characters do not disappoint in The Neapolitan Sisters. The sisters are so real, you'll swear you've met each of them. Margo Candela gives readers a glimpse into a Latino family minus the stereotypes. If you're looking for a touching, funny, sexy read, this is it!"
--Julia Amante, author of Evenings at the Argentine Club, This is Now and That Was Then
