To celebrate their wedding anniversary, intrepid caterer and sometime sleuth Faith Fairchild and her husband, the Reverend Tom Fairchild, are off to Italy for a vacation filled with exquisite indulgences-the art, the Chianti, the food, the Ferragamos! The plan is to spend a romantic weekend in Rome before heading to Tuscany for a stay at Cucina della Rossi, a cooking school founded by Faith's back-in-the-day assistant Francesca Rossi.
Faith is certain that the only intrigue in store for her will be learning the secret recipe for Nona Rossi's ragu. But a thicker plot begins to simmer when the Fairchilds accidentally stumble upon a dying man in the Piazza Farnese. It's clear from the knife in the victim's chest that murder is on the menu.
Mysterious faces from Rome reappear in Tuscany. To Faith, this is no coincidence. And somebody is intent on sabotaging Francesca's new business by spoiling the cream and salting the flour. As Faith struggles to follow a trail more twisting than fusilli, she may be putting both herself and her husband in hot water.

A different narrator - her attempts at different accents were painful to listen to.
Something from a better narrator like Davina Porter.
She kept trying to do things like a British accent or an Australian accent - all attempts were laughably bad.
The whole time I was listening I thought it sounded suspiciously like "North by Northwest". Then the author admitted to stealing the plot from that classic movie. Most of the book was about shopping for groceries or cooking. I usually like Katherine Hall Page, but this was a real stinker.
