Summary of the Book:

After her philandering husband’s boat went down, newly single Mia Carina went back to Astoria, the bustling Queens neighborhood of her youth. Living with her nonna and her oversized cat, Doorstop, she’s got a whole new life–including some amateur sleuthing . . .

Mia is starting work at Belle View, her father’s catering hall, a popular spot for weddings, office parties, and more–despite the planes that occasionally roar overhead on their way to LaGuardia and rattle the crystal chandelier. Soon she’s planning a bachelor party for a less-than-gentlemanly groom. But it goes awry when the gigantic cake is wheeled in and a deadly surprise is revealed . . .

Since some of her family’s associates are on the shady side, the NYPD wastes no time in casting suspicion on Mia’s father. Now, Mia’s going to have to use all her street smarts to keep him out of Rikers Island . . .

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I have been reading me some cozy mysteries and this checks a lot of the boxes. I like Mia she has this aura about her that just draws me in. I also enjoyed that recipes were included in the book since was about a catering service. Mia moves home after the death of her husband and goes to work at her father’s catering service called Belle View. I know she has to go through a lot but with all that sass and attitude she makes it through all the suspense and the rumors. I need to read more by this author.

My Rating of the Book: 4 Stars
