Casi Di Nova by Pablo Omar Zaragoza and Susan Giffin is the story of Giacomo Casanova Sanchez, a man living in a small town on the Mexican border. He works in a small cantina but he dreams of making his life and the lives of those around him better. The story opens with the ghost of his mother praying for her son. She wants him to have more in life. I liked how the story developed; one wrong decision by Giacomo gets him out of debt, but when the benefactors find out, he is in trouble! The supporting cast was great, and the dialogue between them was natural and funny. Armando just wants a job, but suddenly finds himself dragged into a scheme to trick rich women out of their money. The confrontation, when they find out the truth, was very funny and well written.
Pablo Omar Zaragoza and Susan Giffin have written an entertaining book with Casi Di Nova. I liked the characters, they were well developed and the story was interesting. I don't read a lot of romantic comedy, but this would definitely be one of the better ones I have read lately. Giacomo is a good person at heart; he just wants to make people's lives better, but his plan backfires. I enjoyed the book and kept reading. I think it suits the romantic comedy genre and could do quite well as it is something a little bit different to what is out there now. I would recommend this book to romantic comedy fans.
