Publisher's Summary

Francesca Amaro moves back to her hometown of Cape Bay, Massachusetts, and takes over the family business, Antonia's Italian Cafe. She spends her days making delicious artisan cappuccinos - until she stumbles upon her neighbor's dead body. When the police discover Mr. Cardosi was poisoned, Francesca becomes a suspect. The victim's son, Matty, happens to be Francesca's old high school friend. Together they uncover the secrets of the locals in order to find the killer in their idyllic beach town.

    "Not my cup of cappuccino"

    Such a thin story. Would not recommend it. No build-up to who the killer is.

    "Enjoyable"

    I enjoyed this cozy mystery. The characters and plot were engaging. As always, Marguerite brings the story and characters alive and made the book more enjoyable.

    Story
    "Dreadful, depressing and boring."

    Not cosy at all. Two hours in and, apart from finding a corpse, NOTHING HAS HAPPENED. She just talks over and over about how sad she is about her mother having died, and commiserating with the son of the victim about losing a parent. Over and over.

    It took, and I'm not kidding here, 1h and 45 m for them even to REALISE it was a murder.
