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.

To Livia, Boccadoro is a dream come true. But Byron is a reluctant 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 a nightmare.

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.
