More romance than mystery, but still a good cozy. First of the Angie Amalfi series.

This was great! Number 1 in the series (she writes the food column for a newspaper in San Francisco) and I can't wait to read more!

I was fairly disappointed with the first book in this series; enough that I probably won't continue reading the others. Character development seemed to take a backseat romance scenes. I had a hard time identifying and sympathizing with the main character, and the fairly predictable ending made me happy that I read so quickly. Time to move on to a different series.

Romantic suspense -- with an emphasis on the romance. Someone sends food columnist Angie Amalfi a bomb and then the man who contributes recipes to her page is murdered. What's going on? Angie, while falling in love with the detective on the case, decides to find out.

Angie Amalfi was more the damsel in distress than heroine. Which got on my nerves! I was really disappointed. I guess I was expecting something more along the lines of Diane Mott Davidson or Joanne Fluke.

One of the first in the series. Since I live in SF I can related to some of the places and being a foodie adds to the enjoyment. Her later books get better.

Angie Amalfi series: Book 1

Something about Angie makes me annoyed. I just did not believe her as a heroine. Hopefully someone else will find her more entertaining.
