Victoria Rienzi came home to the Jersey Shore to write a new book, learn the family restaurant business, and practice the fine art of Italian cooking. But when delicious dishes are paired with murder, Vic has a little too much on her plate…

When Vic asked her nonna for more responsibility in the kitchen, she didn’t mean making a thousand tiny meatballs by hand for the family’s famous wedding soup. The dish is to be served at the reception for a close family friend at the exclusive Belmont Country Club. And once there Vic has to deal with a demanding bridezilla and clashes in the kitchen—between the staff and servers, between two egocentric head chefs, and between the country club president and…well…everyone.

The wedding comes off without a hitch—until the body of the club’s president is found on the beach below a high seawall. Now Vic will need to use her noodle to find out who pushed whom too far…before she’s the one who lands in the soup!

What a great followup to the first book, Murder in Marinara. Like the first book I didn’t figure it out but it made sense once the whole reason was explained. I do think that while this person was minimally on my radar, I never really would have expected it to turn out how it did. I thought it was interesting to follow along with how Vic’s mind worked as a writer and trying to figure out who and why.

I do wonder if Vic and Tim are destined to get back together or if there will just be this tension between them.  And what about Cal?  Seems like there should be more to his story.

Oh and interesting news for SIL Sophia…I guessed it way in the beginning and was a little surprised that it took Vic a while to figure it out.

We give this 4 paws up and can’t wait for book 3!
