Description
In this entertaining and delightful mystery, an Italian chef and her cousins start their own investigation to clear their grandmother's name after she's arrested for murder.At Miracolo Northern Italian restaurant, one can savor brilliantly seasoned veal saltimbocca, or luscious risotto alla milanese, but no cannoli. Never cannoli. Maria Pia Angelotta, the spirited seventy-six-year-old owner of the Philadelphia-area eatery that's been in her family for four generations, has butted heads with her head chef over the cannoli ban more than once. And when the head chef is your own granddaughter, things can get a little heated. Fortunately, Eve Angelotta knows how to handle what her nonna dishes out. But when Maria Pia's boyfriend is found dead in Miracolo's kitchen, bludgeoned by a marble mortar, the question arises: Can a woman this fiery and stubborn over cream-filled pastry be capable of murder? The police seem to think so, and they put the elder Angelotta behind bars, while Eve, sexy neighborhood attorney Joe Beck, and the entire Miracolo family— parenti di sangue and otherwise—try every trick in the cookbook to unravel a tangle of lies and expose a killer.

        The whole staff (and most of an extended Italian American family) are at the ready when the matriarch of their restaurant is arrested for slaying her boyfriend with a mortar in the kitchen. "Must find Nonna innocent" is their mantra, under the lead of chef and favored granddaughter Eve Angelotta. Eve has trouble piecing together why someone wanted the septuagenarian boyfriend dead, why he was apparently stealing Eve's beloved Enrico Caruso recording, and why her grandmother keeps changing her story. When Eve realizes how deceitful the victim was, she worries that others around her haven't been forthright either. Luckily, lawyer Joe Beck is there to help. VERDICT The Philadelphia region gets its moment in the sun with this laugh-filled cozy debut. Yes, you'll figure out the motive before Eve does, but that's OK--she catches up pretty quickly. This would appeal to Kate Collins ("Flower Shop" mysteries) and Avery Aames ("Cheese Shop") fans.
