When divorce deprives American winemaker Byron Blyseth of his
estate in Tuscany, he flees to a nearby island and opens a wine bar
called Boccadoro, the nickname given to him because of his "golden
palate." He falls in love with Livia, a gorgeous widow and gifted
cook who wins the restaurant star status.

host who prefers sailing, diving, and delving into the legends and
myths of an island known as a haven for pirates and other misfits
since Etruscan times.
Intrigued by the nighttime cruises of a luxury yacht owned by a
sinister lawyer, Byron recruits a trio of local oddballs as fellow
sleuths in a daredevil scheme to crack a smuggling ring. But Byron
and Livia become targets of mysterious threats and attacks that
weave a web of fear around them and turn their island paradise into
Sizzling with the delectable tastes, fun-filled sounds, and vivid
sights of the Tuscan islands and brimming with thrills,
Boccadoro: The Honorary Pirate is the perfect summer read.
