The Seven-Course Christmas Killer (An Italian Kitchen Mystery, #3.5)
by: Rosie Genova
Series: An Italian Kitchen Mystery
Genre: Cozy Mystery
Release Date: November 27, 2016
Publisher: Beyond the Page

On Christmas Eve, someone might be sleeping with the fishes...

It’s December at the Casa Lido, which means only one thing: the Rienzi family’s traditional Christmas Eve celebration, including wine, song, and seven Italian seafood courses. As Victoria and Tim prep scungilli and calamari, Nonna directs the cooking until all is in readiness for the big night.

But the holiday cheer is interrupted by the attempted murder of Mayor Anne McCrae, who asks Vic to investigate. Trouble is, there are as many suspects as there are fishes on the Christmas Eve menu . . .


The Seven-Course Christmas Killer by Rosie Genova is a nice little novella guaranteed to make you hungry.  Sorry, I mean get you into the spirit of Christmas.  Fine, who am I kidding, a seven-course feast is fantastic.  In this installment of the series, Victoria (Vic) Rienzi is tasked with helping her archnemesis, Mayor McCrae figure out who is trying to kill her.  

This is a quick read.  I love the way Rosie leads you around to solve the mystery within a short time frame (seven-courses to be exact).  Was it easy to figure out?  Maybe, but only if you were paying super close attention.

Since this is a novella, if you haven’t read at least one book in the series, you might be a little lost trying to understand the characters and their backstories.  I am sooooo happy Rosie is continuing this series and I can’t wait for more.
