“Josephine Pasquarello’s book, “Love & Loyalty” is one of the best reads of this year. It is a great love story full of joy, pathos and humor. At the same time it is a mystery that unfolds as you laugh and cry your way through the book. Josephine has done a tremendous job developing her characters and by the end of the story you know the Pasquarello family. I heartily recommend the story to readers of all ages.”  ~  Bob Delaney, Author/Critic
