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!

Did not enjoy this book
What would have made Murder at the Cooking School better?
Better dialog, narrator, everything and anything. I will not be reading or listening to any more books by this author.
What was most disappointing about Dianne Harman’s story?
I really disliked how the Sheriff talked to his wife Kelly. He treated her like a child, not an equal. I listened to an earlier book in the series and was hoping for improvement over time, but I saw none.
How could the performance have been better?
I am unsure at this time, I would give the narrator another chance with a different author,
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
I love cozy mysteries, and I also know a lot of people love this author, I am just not one of them.
Any additional comments?
I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
