Author Marianna Buffolino has announced the launch of her sophomore novel, Condemned, set to be released on February 14. Following the success of her debut novel, Fallacy: Entangled, Mrs. Buffolino returns with another gripping tale of mafia intrigue, forbidden love and the complexities of familial ties.
Condemned takes place in the gritty streets of Chicago, where protagonist Bethany finds herself trapped in a web of family obligations and forbidden desires. As part of the DeCarlo family, Bethany’s life is intricately tied to the machinations of her brother, Luca, a character beloved by fans of Mrs. Buffolino’s earlier work. However, when an arranged marriage causes Bethany to rebel, she forms a forbidden romance with Emilio, Luca’s consigliere, teetering on the edge of a dangerous precipice.
While Condemned serves as a spin-off from Mrs. Buffolino’s debut novel, Fallacy: Entangled, it stands as its own compelling read. Whether readers are returning to Mrs. Buffolino’s storytelling or reading for the first time, Condemned promises to deliver an unforgettable literary journey.
“I’m thrilled to finally share this story,” Mrs. Buffolino says. “I’ve been working on Condemned for a while now, and I can’t wait to take readers along on this journey with me.”
Condemned is scheduled for release on February 14th, just in time for Valentine’s Day. Readers can pre-order their copies now on Amazon.
