This is the 14th book in the ever popular Angie Amalfi culinary mystery series.
Read A Review:

Angie Amalfi ends up following her sister Caterina to Rome after Cat finds a man dead in a house she’s trying to sell for Marcello Piccoletti. Unfortunately Cat is a suspect in the murder, and fleeing the country doesn’t bode well.

Angie and Cat have trouble locating Marcello when they arrive in Rome. Finally they end up working at his restaurant, Da Vinci’s, in hopes of running into him. Plus a potentially priceless religious relic is missing.

Homicide Detective Paavo Smith, Angie’s fiancÚ is trying to clear Cat’s name and solve the murder when there are more murders. Plus Angie and Cat’s three sisters and mother are constantly showing up to “help” him. He’s also trying to talk Angie into returning home. Unfortunately she doesn’t return as fast as he’d like.

Can the murders be solved in time to get Cat and Angie home safe? Can Cat and Angie stay safe in Rome with people following them?

I think this was one of the best books in this series. There is always so much going on on both sides of the ocean that the story never lulled. It gave us some better insight into Angie’s family as well. I loved the setting of Rome as well. Angie is such a fun character. She’s pretty level headed, even when they find themselves in some dicey situations.

I highly recommend this book and the whole series. Give it a try. You’ll be glad you did!
