Claudia Winter has been writing since her childhood. Before her greatest success with Apricot Kisses she published two romantic comedies, a chicklit crime novel and several short stories in anthologies. Beside her work as a social pedagogue at an elementary school she also works as editor and coach for authors. She lives with her partner and two dogs in a small town in Hesse/Germany.


The life of 28 years old food journalist Hanna could be so wonderful. If she only hadn’t written this one restaurant review, which caused an Italien lady of the manor a deadly heart attack! And when she accidently – er, there’s a slight disposition towards kleptomania – comes into posses-sion of the urn with her ashes, her bad conscience drives her to Italy – where she unintentionally falls victim to a very special testament. Because even after her death Giuseppa Camini knows only one aim: to bring her bad-tempered grandson to marriage. This task keeps a complete Tus-can village on their toes, gives rise to a family drama and gets Hanna’s array of emotions in an enormous mess.
