    One thought on “Mozzarella Most Murderous”

    1. This easy to read, lightweight cozy mystery is filled with cultural stereotypes (about Americans, the French, the English, and Italians from different areas of Italy) and has an implausible plot. The two narrators have the same inner voice, despite one being a 40-something American tourist and the other a young pregnant Italian, and I often forgot which one was currently telling the story.I enjoyed vicariously visiting Italy, and the Italian recipes made my mouth water. But I will not be seeking [...]

    2. Carolyn Blue is a forty-something faculty wife, embarking on a second career as a food writer. Her husband's work as a chemist gives her ample opportunity to travel to exotic locations and sample local fare. Needless to say, her passion for food is a running theme throughout the series, and often is the source for much comedy. For readers who cook, recipes are inserted throughout as parts of the columns that Carolyn writes. She is also an amatuer historian, and interesting bits of local (and not [...]

    3. Although this book was written in 2005 it felt like it was written in 1995. The way they spoke about food, the mafia, cell phones, almost everything, made the book feel remarkably dated and not like a Sue Grafton novel which is set in a specific slice of time. Carolyn Blue and her chemist husband Jason are in Sorrento for another of his conferences where Carolyn immediately stumbles onto a body. Well, almost immediately. First, she gets to know the woman, then she finds her dead. But as with pri [...]

    4. #7 of the Culinary Food Writers series. I'm not quite sure why, but this is one of my least favorite entries in the series.Culinary Food Writer series - When Jason is stranded in Paris, Carolyn's first day in Sorrento is spent quite enjoyably with Paolina, whom Carolyn then finds dead in the hotel swimming pool the next morning. Carolyn seems to be the only one truly interested in finding out the truth behind her death, and sets about investigating, enlisting Bianca's aid. Bianca is a heavily pr [...]

    5. 3rd book in a row I've read this week about people not being who you think they are. This is the 7th of the Carolyn Blue culinary mysteries. This one is set in Italy and of course Carolyn starts right out finding a dead body and then trying to find out who killed the young girl even though everyone wants to say it was sucide.

    6. I am just about finished with this light and fun mystery novel featuring food columnist Carolyn Blue as she helps the Italian police find the murderer of a young lady who was staying in Carolyn's hotel in Italy.

    7. I really like this genre, and this is a fun series. The recipes look yummy, but the histories get a bit pedantic and over-the-top. I figured out what was going to happen pretty early in the story, but it was still a fun, quick read.

    8. A trip to Italy becomes a murder investigation for the intrepid Carolyn Blue. In addition to the lovely scenery, fabulous food descriptions and the murder, we have the added attraction of an incredibly pregnant woman. What I did not care for was the varying POV chapters.

    9. I was in the mood for something with Italian flavor.Characters were cartoonish and recipes way too unathenticnot my cup of tea.

    10. Another fun little mystery by Nancy Fairbanks. I like that they are set in Europe so I get to see various countries through her eyes. The characters are entertaining and of course there is food.

    11. Light reading; humorous suspenseful, and delightful. Includes recipes as an aside!They're fun to read, even if you don't cook.
