Here's What Reviewers Are Saying ...
"With both humor and flair, Garritano weaves a tale that is both thrilling and unexpected. Each of the characters have a truly distinctive personality with their own quirks and unique characteristics. Sheila is a strong female protagonist with a perspective that is both down-to-earth and relatable. Touching on themes of racism and corruption, this mystery keeps the reader guessing as to who the murderer is, as Sheila doggedly follows each lead. This original story will be an enjoyable read for anyone looking to get lost in a mystery. Readers won't be able to stop until they've solved it themselves!"
"What's amazing is just how funny and comedic this book is. The characters are all distinct and play off of one another, making this a surprisingly diverse cast of characters even compared to the fantasy novels we've read. Reggie, a former theater actor and love-interest of Sheila, turns out to be one of the most interesting characters we've read about in a while. The mystery, intrigue, and slapstick humor in this book really carries it. We couldn't wait to solve this mystery!"
"Author Tony Garritano made what could have been a gruesome and triggering story into a light-hearted, brief and jovial one. Never have I been so chipper while reading about a murder. His simple way of describing the day to day activities, scenes, characters, and experiences lures you into a story that seems simple up front, but as the mystery continues to grow the easy storytelling ensures readers are never more than a step behind. I Saw What I Saw is a thrilling murder mystery that thrives on the back of its captivating protagonist and the fascinating riddle at the center of the story. Fans of young adult crime fiction stories will find this story interesting to follow as every step and every turn connects to the next unfolding event."
"Not everything is in harmony in the charming town of Harmony. Former crime reporter Sheila Sammaritino loves asking questions and getting the details of every story. When she witnesses a murder, she becomes part of an uncomfortable story about finding justice and restoring harmony to Harmony. A fast-paced mystery with humor and heart, a great first novel by Tony Garritano."
“A playfully cynical, breezy treatment of murder, intrigue and collaboration by friends to overcome police indifference. A “page turner” written in a consistent and comfortably enjoyable style.”
"Sheila’s can-do attitude and amateur sleuth antics made for an entertaining read.... I recommend this book to readers who enjoy over-the-top humor and whodunits with a solid plot.... With a proposed sequel to follow, now is a great time to jump into the Harmony Neighborhood Cozy Mystery series."
