Alley cover

This is the first full length novel from author Tiffany Turner. Jen and Jimmy are spending their weekend with their Grandma, Alley. With nothing else to do but sit around and listen to her stories, they settle into her comfy, old living room. They expect to be bored with innocent stories of "back then," but instead, Jen and Jimmy are about to be swept away into 1940s New York City-a world full of mobsters, swing music, murder, betrayal and their grandmother's first love--Angelo--a monster in a fedora hat disguising himself as prince charming. When Alley begins her tale, they quickly learn that the grandma they know, used to be more than a tired old lady--she was once young and beautiful, with a smile that could charm the devil--and that summer in 1941, that's exactly what she did. For before she ever fell in love with their grandpa, Angelo Adduci had come into her life.
