    Entertaining Read!

    An excellent addition to the Sally Solari Cozy Mystery series. Once again we see interesting characters that have been well developed including a grouping of characters that could be the villain in the mystery. The plot is interesting, funny and very entertaining. Combine interesting characters and intriguing plot and you have an entertaining read to while away an afternoon with! Be prepared though, you will be craving Italian food by the time you finish the book! Fortunately the author includes a few recipes to feed that craving at the end of the book, a true cozy mystery!

    Enjoyable

    DEATH AL FRESCO is an enjoyable book. The heroine is easy to like, the characters are diverse and unique, and the mystery kept me guessing. I also found the Santa Cruz setting to be quite appealing, and for those who like the food angle there were some enticing recipes included at the end. Disclosure: I won a free copy of this book in a giveaway.

    Corpse in the Kelp

    Sally and her friend Eric are taking an outdoor painting class around Santa Cruz. During class one Saturday, Sally’s dog finds a dead body in the kelp. The man was a regular at Sally’s family’s restaurant, and his last few days seem to be connected to his time there. Can Sally figure out what happened before the restaurant’s reputation is ruined? This book has a good mystery with viable suspects and a couple of good twists to it. It also has some strong sub-plot, which are a double-edged sword. On the one hand, they take the focus off the mystery a bit too much at times. On the other hand, they are the perfect showcases for some of the recurring characters, and I enjoyed seeing them again and how they are growing. Overall, I found this a satisfying read. NOTE: I received an ARC of this book.

    Sisterly History and Mystery

    Sally Solari, former attorney and current restauranteur from Santa Cruz, California grew up in the family restaurant. When the body of an old local fisherman, and regular customer at her Father’s restaurant, is discovered by her dog, Buster, on the beach where she is taking a painting class, Sally finds herself playing detective. While I enjoyed beyond whisked away to the Monterey Bay area for a while, the story was more focused on Sally’s personal life than solving the mystery. Running a restaurant, not counting helping in another, is a labor of love with lots of hours spent working. Between running her own restaurant, Gauguin, and helping her Father prepare for a party to celebrate the visit from the town’s sister city in Italy at his restaurant, Solari’s, I’m not sure how Sally managed to have free time to paint, throw a dinner party, and solve a murder. While the author’s writing style provides for an easy read, I just didn’t truly get into it. Perhaps not having read the previous books in this series caused me to view the story differently, but I believe that books should be written to stand alone. And when well written, they will also make me want to read the previous books. I’m sorry to say that this voracious reader does not find either to be the case with Death Al Fresco.
