From the bestselling author of The Misadventures of the Laundry Hag series, Jennifer L. Hart, comes a new mystery series of mouthwatering proportions...
Pretty please with spaghetti on top?
Andy Buckland has always dreamed of being a chef. But after a live studio audience is stricken with food poisoning during her debut cooking show, she finds herself blacklisted in the culinary community. The only job open to her is working in her family's southern pasta shop, and, to make matters worse, her first assignment is serving baked ziti to her former lover and his spoiled bride-to-be at their engagement party! But a broken heart and a bruised ego are the least of Andy's troubles when she discovers a dead body at the party with the words "welcome home" written in flour next to it. Is it a warning? A threat? Or a frame-up job? Andy is determined to find out. With the help of her over-the-top Italian family, Andy will prove that she has what it takes to not only cook the best dish in town but also catch a killer, too!

Murder Al Dante
Characters were interesting and Easy to relate to. I like the way their past lives were revealed as the story was told and how the characters were able to accept each other. I also was happy I was not able to figure out who the murderer was and was surprised when the author revealed.
All I can say is Wow!! Andy is hilarious and she made me laugh and cry. Loved how the recipes were worked into story. A great book.
Can't Wait for a Second Helping
I love a good culinary mystery and this was a great one. I loved that there were recipes sprinkled throughout the book and I loved the characters. This is a great start to the series and I can't wait to read more!
