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!

I love this series!

This is the 2nd book I have listened to in Dianne Harman's Cedar Bay Cozy Mystery Series. I wish all of them were on audio!! I love everything about these books...the plot, characters, narration...all fantastic! The first one I listened to was Book 1: Kelly's Koffee Shop. That book is the #1 single reason I fell in love with Cozy Mysteries, in the first place. Dianne Harman instantly became a favorite author of mine, and now I can't get enough! I follow her on all her social media sites and subscribe to her newsletter. She is amazing! There's more than just this one series, though. She has a whole bunch of different series, books, characters, and worlds to explore. I highly recommend her books to those who love cozy mysteries!! They are light, fun, and very engaging, without the gross gorey details of some mystery books. I have no doubt in my mind that you, too, will love them as much as I do!

As for the narrator, she does a great job! She is easy to understand and sounds exactly like I imagine the main character, Kelly, to sound. Her pronunciation of words is right on, and her pace and volume are perfect. I think she is a perfect fit for the Cedar Bay Cozy Mystery Series! Great job!!

Thank you for reading my review! :-)
