The Body in the Piazza (Faith Fairchild Mysteries #21) (Large Print / Paperback)
Faith Fairchild and her husband are celebrating a big anniversary with a trip to Italy, filled with exquisite indulgences—the art, the Chianti, the food, the Ferragamos! After a weekend in Rome, they'll travel to Tuscany, where Faith's former assistant Francesca has opened a cooking school.
But, along with percorino, panna cotta, and Prosecco, it looks like murder and mayhem are also on the menu! On their first night in the Eternal City, the Fairchilds stumble upon a dying man in the Piazza Farnese. Mysterious characters from Rome resurface in Tuscany. And somebody is intent on sabotaging Francesca's new business. It's up to Faith to put everything right—and still whip up a mean Spaghetti alla Foriana, of course!
“Enticing recipes at the back of the book and cooking tips sprinkled throughout ... The crime is solved satisfactorily...[but] let’s be honest: most of us came for the food.”
“Delightful . . . Hungry readers will rush to the kitchen if not to their travel agent to book tickets to Italy.”
