Tempesta's stories explore complexities that are both profound and profoundly human, for example in cultural differences between life in the USA and in Italy. Most of his stories ask the reader to consider such questions as whether friendship possesses substance beyond illusion, and whether new life and new joy can emerge from surrender to aestheticized memories. Translating short stories is an arduous task but he succeeded in recreating in English, the emotional impact of his original stories in Italian. The importance of his writing lies in his capacity to generate dialogue. A reader must actively engage his texts, not to arbitrarily construct meaning, but to capture the abundance of subtlety and nuance that his work evokes. His prose (just like his poetry) does not ask to be received or decoded. Rather, it asks the reader to reflect on it and converse with it.

Simona and her detective boyfriend are spending Christmas in a cozy Connecticut inn to attend an interracial wedding. It's Simona's first vacation with Greenhouse and her nervousness isn't helped by the presence of Greenhouse's wary teenage son, Willy. Out for some needed cold air, Simona discovers a body under the thin ice of the nearby lake. The dead woman, whose husband had disappeared years earlier, turns out to have had mysterious ties to Kesho, the African American bride-to-be. Greenhouse is in Florida with his ailing mother, leaving Simona in charge of Willy, when Kesho is arrested for the murder. Convinced of her new friend's innocence and with Willy as her Watson, Simona delves into the town's secrets and lies to uncover the truth. Another murder gives Simona a much-needed clue, but her zeal for the truth puts Willy and her in danger. Thanks to Simona's gutsiness and Willy's fast thinking, the murderer gets his due, Kesho walks down the aisle and Greenhouse asks a question. A recipe for Comfort Pasta is included. "Simona exercises her adorable ways with a vengeance but it is her keen intelligence, not her bubbly personality, that wins." -Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review "Rich in atmosphere and buoyed by wry wit, Crespi's briskly paced narrative calls for an encore." -Publishers Weekly starred review "Crespi turns out a nicely complicated story that includes both unexpected twists and credible interpersonal tensions Simona's voice is personable. She deals deftly with racism and, more generally, with stereotyping, whether it is used to pigeonhole blacks, Italians, or New Yorkers." -Wilson Library Journal "The Trouble With Thin Ice is the best Simona Griffo yet, a fast-paced puzzle with the trademark recipe included." -M.E. Burness, Reading For Pleasure
