Life's a banquet for Angelina Amalfi—a gourmet chef and food writer with enough sass and spunk for two. But things start to go really bad really fast when the man who's been contributing unusual recipes to her column is discovered dead and Angie suddenly finds herself being stalked by a killer whose appetite was merely whetted by the first deadly course. On the plus side, Paavo Smith, the homicide cop assigned to the case, is one delectable dish. But when more people start to fall all around her like ruined soufflés, ever-resourceful Angie realizes she'll have to cook up a survival scheme quick before her personal goose gets cooked. This case may be too hot to handle and the stakes are high, for she's about to take on deadly arms smugglers and lethal food fanatics. But if anyone can keep her cool, Angie can.
Reviews for Something's Cooking: An Angie Amalfi Mystery
This book is a powerhouse "first in a series". Angie is a young woman, wealthy and trying to find her way in life. While she is working it out she is writing a history of San Francisco while also writing occasional magazine articles and submitting some recipes to a local shopper.
Then, one day her source of humorous recipes is killed and someone is trying to kill her. Enter Paavo Smith, homicide inspector who is trying to solve the murder of Sammy Blade which is eventually tied into the strange events surrounding Angie.
There is sexual tension, suppressed emotions and lots of twists and turns in this book while it keeps you guessing and trying to figure out the who and the why of the crimes.
Highly recommended, and there are a lot of books in the series so I'll be doing some catching up!read more
