Publisher's Summary

Seven-Time Amazon All Star Author with her latest book in the highly popular Cedar Bay Cozy Mystery series
Cooking is nourishing. Murder isn't. Kelly and her husband, Sheriff Mike, take a belated honeymoon and travel to a cooking school at the Castello di Nardo in Tuscany. The day after they arrive, they discover that Signora Nardo, the owner of the cooking school, has been murdered. The Signora had her share of people who would like to see the first lady of the castle dead, including her brother, Salvadore, her lover, Giovanni, her lover's wife, Angelica, the Signora's husband, a rival cooking school owner, and her sister-in-law, who happens to be the resident chef at the cooking school. Identifying suspects isn't the problem - finding out which of the suspects killed the Signora is. Follow Kelly, Mike, and her new four-legged furry friend, Caesar, while they help the local chief of police try to solve the murder. There's plenty of mouth-watering food, recipes, and a very big guard dog.

A Tasty Whodunnit With A Twist

I am an avid mystery lover, particularly cozy mysteries, and I have fallen in love with this series! This book was set up quite different than most mysteries where you have a murder and then later on work to figure out the whodunnit and why. Here you find out early on who will be murdered, and in an unusual (and very fun) twist you also learn the inner dialogue and motives for many different characters. You find out that many people have interests in killing Signora Nardo, and when the killer strikes you don't know who did it. Which one of the characters got to her first? Who is the true killer?
I loved playing along with this guessing game and I loved the cast of characters! Kelly and her husband are an adorable crime solving duo, and they compliment each other perfectly! Kelly has a knack for picking up insider gossip from locals, sometimes sneaking around a bit which makes it fun and comical.
Erin deWard does an excellent job narrating this book and brought to life each character with discernible tones and accents. It was a treat to listen to this book, and if you like cozy mysteries and want a fun twist then I recommend this highly!
