My Teaser for this week is from

Murder And Marinara

An Italian Kitchen Mystery 

by Rosie Genova


Genre: Cozy Mystery

 My teaser from page 65 in the paperback.

 “Your grandmother wants you to figure out who killed Parisi.”

I plopped down in a nearby chair and shook my head. “Are there no secrets in this godforsaken town? Have you been in touch with my brother? And who said anyone killed him?”

“No, yes, and everyone.”


Read on if you want to know more.


Hit whodunit writer Victoria Rienzi is getting back to her roots by working at her family’s Italian restaurant. But now in between plating pasta and pouring vino, she’ll have to find the secret ingredient in a murder….

When Victoria takes a break from penning her popular mystery series and moves back to the Jersey shore, she imagines sun, sand, and scents of fresh basil and simmering marinara sauce at the family restaurant, the Casa Lido. But her nonna’s recipes aren’t the only things getting stirred up in this Italian kitchen.

Their small town is up in arms over plans to film a new reality TV show, and when Victoria serves the show’s pushy producer his last meal, the Casa Lido staff finds itself embroiled in a murder investigation. Victoria wants to find the real killer, but there are as many suspects as tomatoes in her nonna’s garden. Now she’ll have to heat up her sleuthing skills quickly…before someone else gets a plateful of murder.

    Hey, it’s a small town. Of course everyone knows everything about everyone. Or so they think.

    Great teaser.

  6. Sounds like a good one.

  7. ljennison says:

    Sounds like a delicious cozy. Love that it seems to have humor to it.

  8. I had forgotten about this one but I have a copy sitting on my shelf! Thanks for the reminder! Now I can’t wait to read it.

  9. sjhigbee says:

    Oh, this one looks great fun, Laura. I may need a nice cosy murder after reading all those very depressing facts about what happens when you don’t get enough sleep…

    • fuonlyknew says:

      I hear ya. That book about sleep deprivation sounds fascinating, Sarah. And kind of scary. Lack of sleep has been featured on the news a lot recently too. I know I don’t get near what I should.

  10. Yvonne says:

    I loved this book!

  11. Sounds like a good cozy! Reminds me very much like one in Ellie Alexander’s Bakeshop Mystery series.

  12. This one looks great, and with a lot of Italian-style stuff, for what I can tell. Thanks for sharing this :)
