A Dish Best Served Cold
by Rosie Genova
This is an enjoyable, fast summertime read, which takes you to the jersey shore and beyond.
If you’re a beach lover, and especially if you’re an aficionado of Italian cuisine, you’ll love this book (and the Italian Kitchen series) with the delicious recipes, busy kitchen, wonderful characters, and of course the Jersey Shore and Boardwalk! I highly recommend A Dish Best Served Cold by Rosie Genova, and grant it our highest rating of Five Kitties.
I think this is my favorite book in this series so far!
A DISH BEST SERVED COLD is the perfect addition to a delicious series and is sure to whet your appetite for more.

Love lost and found, people who want to keep their skeletons in their closets, and a possible mob connection kept this mystery rushing forward and kept me on my toes…
~fuonlyknewLaura’s Ramblins and Reviews
Genova captures the essence of family, the good and the bad, and combines it with a complex mystery.
~Cozy Up with Kathy
I love Rosie’s writing because not only do I get to learn about Italian dishes, but also because her writing allows me to just lose myself in the story.

This cozy was great because it kept me on the edge of my seat the whole way through.

A Dish Best Served Cold:
An Italian Kitchen Mystery (Italian Kitchen Mystery, An)
3rd in Series
Mass Market Paperback: 336 pages
Publisher: NAL (August 4, 2015)
The national bestselling author of The Wedding Soup Murder returns to the Jersey Shore where a killer is stirring up trouble during a hurricane…
At the Casa Lido, the end of summer means a party, and hit whodunit writer Victoria “Vic” Rienzi and her family are cooking like crazy for the restaurant’s seventieth anniversary celebration. As they chop onions and garlic, old family friend Pete Petrocelli stops by, saying he knows something that would make for a good mystery novel. Curious, Vic asks Nonna to elaborate on Pete’s claim and learns of a relative who mysteriously disappeared back in Italy…
The night of the party brings a crowd—and a full throttle hurricane. When the storm finally passes, everyone thinks they’re in the clear—until the first casualty is found, and it’s Pete. Remembering his visit, Vic isn’t certain Pete’s death was an accident and decides to dig deeper into his story. What she finds is meatier than Nonna’s sauce…
