Courting Disaster: An Angie Amalfi Mystery Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This twelfth culinary mystery from Joanne Pence has everything a mystery reader could ever want: romance, intrigue and, of course, murder. Loveable amateur sleuth and budding chef Angie Amalfi continues her adventures in this exciting addition to a popular series.

Dilettante chef and amateur sleuth Angie Amalfi is at it again, in another culinary mystery in this successful series. Angie has reluctantly agreed to let her mother plan the party to celebrate her engagement to Paavo, her hunky detective beau. But as she frets over whether her mom will pull it off, a new situation surfaces--Stan, her next door neighbour, falls for a mysterious pregnant woman, and gets in over his head. With stalkers, baby-smuggling, and, of course, murder in the days leading up to the party, Angie must concentrate on solving a complicated crime, and reluctantly leave the party planning to mom.

o Perfect for fans of Janet Evanovich and mystery readers who love stories with a dash of romance.

o Each instalment in the series features several delicious recipes from the kitchen of Angie Amalfi.

Synopsis:

Normally dilettante chef and freelance food writer Angie Amalfi would rather be deep-fried than let her control-freak mother plan the party celebrating Angie's engagement to San Francisco homicide detective Paavo Smith. But there's already too much on the bride-to-be's plate ... and much of it is murderous.

What with her unhealthy interest in friendly neighbor Stan's dangerous infatuation with a mysterious, very pregnant kitchen helper at a nearby Greek eatery — and in the related sudden death by very unnatural causes of a celebrated do-gooder — incurable snoop Angie may be biting off a lot more souvlaki than she can safely swallow. Stir in a vengeful stalker, some strange happenings on a fishing boat, and a second heaping helping of homicide, and it looks like poor Paavo may end up celebrating solo, due to the untimely d.o.a. of his hapless fiancée!

Synopsis:

The irresistible chef/sleuth is back for her 12th delectable mystery. Two separate helpings of homicide whet the curiosity of bride-to-be Angie, which could force her to miss her own engagement party due to her untimely demise. Recipes included. Original.
