  • PENNE DREADFUL by Catherine Bruns

    PENNE DREADFUL by Catherine Bruns is the first book in her new series -An Italian Chef Mystery series. It is the fabulous story of Tessa Esposito – her coming to terms with many secrets her recently deceased husband had kept from her, being told his death wasn’t an accident and finding out she is stronger than she ever thought she could be. Just weeks after the death of her beloved husband, Dylan, Tessa is trying to make sense of her life, pick up the pieces and move on. Then she learned from her cousin Gino Mancusi, police detective, that her husband’s death was no accident. His car had been tampered with causing the wreck and his car to burst into flames. Tessa feels it’s her job to find out who and why and for them to pay for such a senseless action. It leads her to taking a job at Slice a local pizza parlor, asking questions and shaking cages - at times with the help of her cousin Gabby, her Ethel sidekick to her Lucy. Every time Tessa turns around she is finding out more she didn’t know about her husband – having been fired weeks before his death, possible criminal activities he has been involved in, more reasons to doubt if he loved her, and feeling of being kept in the dark. She feels it’s a big puzzle and she just has to find all the pieces to make it become clear. Then maybe she can move on. Get ready for some heart pounding, on the edge of your seat situations that lead you in one direction one minute only to have you come to a standstill, shake your head and have you starting all over again. Danger seems to lurk around every corner. You will love the twists and turns the storyline takes while you ride the roller coaster ride of emotions with Tessa. Just remember the rides not over until the ride comes to a complete stop. PENNE DREADFUL will leave you knowing this is going to be an amazing series, loving not only Tessa but everyone in her circle of family and friends and anticipating the next book in the series. There are so many possibilities for this series to go and I will be waiting with great anticipation for book #2. As an added bonus there are some of the delicious Italian recipes use within the story at the back of the book. I highly recommend this book to anyone that loves a well written cozy mystery because Catherine Bruns sure delivers on this one. You will not be disappointed!
