Publisher's Summary

Seven-Time Amazon All Star Author with her latest book in the highly popular Cedar Bay Cozy Mystery series

Cooking is nourishing. Murder isn't. Kelly and her husband, Sheriff Mike, take a belated honeymoon and travel to a cooking school at the Castello di Nardo in Tuscany. The day after they arrive, they discover that Signora Nardo, the owner of the cooking school, has been murdered. The Signora had her share of people who would like to see the first lady of the castle dead, including her brother, Salvadore, her lover, Giovanni, her lover's wife, Angelica, the Signora's husband, a rival cooking school owner, and her sister-in-law, who happens to be the resident chef at the cooking school. Identifying suspects isn't the problem - finding out which of the suspects killed the Signora is. Follow Kelly, Mike, and her new four-legged furry friend, Caesar, while they help the local chief of police try to solve the murder. There's plenty of mouth-watering food, recipes, and a very big guard dog.

This is Book 7 in the award-winning and popular Cedar Bay Cozy Mystery series. To find out more about Dianne and her books, please go to www.diannharman.com

    Story
    "A Tasty Whodunnit With A Twist"

    I am an avid mystery lover, particularly cozy mysteries, and I have fallen in love with this series! This book was set up quite different than most mysteries where you have a murder and then later on work to figure out the whodunnit and why. Here you find out early on who will be murdered, and in an unusual (and very fun) twist you also learn the inner dialogue and motives for many different characters. You find out that many people have interests in killing Signora Nardo, and when the killer strikes you don't know who did it. Which one of the characters got to her first? Who is the true killer?
    I loved playing along with this guessing game and I loved the cast of characters! Kelly and her husband are an adorable crime solving duo, and they compliment each other perfectly! Kelly has a knack for picking up insider gossip from locals, sometimes sneaking around a bit which makes it fun and comical.
    Erin deWard does an excellent job narrating this book and brought to life each character with discernible tones and accents. It was a treat to listen to this book, and if you like cozy mysteries and want a fun twist then I recommend this highly!

    "Cooking with a dash of murder"
    Any additional comments?

    Another quick, fun, light murder mystery.
    Entertaining and enjoyable.

    While the book is part of a series all of the books can be read as stand alone.
    Everything you need to know is spelled out clearly.

    Mike and Kelly are in Italy this time around, on a belated honeymoon. They are quickly sidetracked when Signora Nardo is murdered. Thus begins a new
    adventure to discover who committed murder. There are no shortage of suspects and it's a bit harder this time to figure out who did the deed.

    Love the recipes at the end of the books.

    Erin deWard did a really good job with the narration as usual. Pleasant voice and easy to listen to. Great character voices. With the different accents it was easy to tell which characters were speaking.

    Story
    "Did not enjoy this book"
    What would have made Murder at the Cooking School better?

    Better dialog, narrator, everything and anything. I will not be reading or listening to any more books by this author.


    What was most disappointing about Dianne Harman’s story?

    I really disliked how the Sheriff talked to his wife Kelly. He treated her like a child, not an equal. I listened to an earlier book in the series and was hoping for improvement over time, but I saw none.


    How could the performance have been better?

    I am unsure at this time, I would give the narrator another chance with a different author,


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I love cozy mysteries, and I also know a lot of people love this author, I am just not one of them.


    Any additional comments?

    I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

    What did you like best about Murder at the Cooking School? What did you like least?

    You did not know who did the murder until the very end. Great setting and very descriptive.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    There were many suspects but I did not know until the end which one did the murder.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Erin deWard?

    ?


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No I don't go see movies. I would watch it on TV.

    "I was a decent book"
    If you could sum up Murder at the Cooking School in three words, what would they be?

    Predictable, yummy, ......


    Would you be willing to try another book from Dianne Harman? Why or why not?

    I don't know. this was the 2nd one that was ok. this series in particular reminds me of a couple other series with cooks/caterers solving crimes that i do prefer more


    What does Erin deWard bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I do like some of the voices she does


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes, it was a shorter and sweet book.

    "it was just OK."

    The description of Tuscany was definitely great. It made me want to visit one-day. I've always wanted take a cooking class and I love mysteries so I thought I'd give this a audio book a try.
    this book was just OK. it didn’t grab me like most books do, though I did like the dog. Though the book did have some funny parts and some twists it was sadly predictable. She described the menus and the cooking school, and may times it made d me hungry.:) I was very pleased that there're a few recipes at the end of the book, Nice touch.
    I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator for an unbiased review via Audiobook Blast or Audio Boom..
