Faith Fairchild and her husband are celebrating a big anniversary with a trip to Italy, filled with exquisite indulgences—the art, the Chianti, the food, the Ferragamos! After a weekend in Rome, they’ll travel to Tuscany, where Faith’s former assistant Francesca has opened a cooking school.
But, along with pecorino, pannacotta, and prosecco, it looks like murder and mayhem are also on the menu! On their fist night in the Eternal City, the Fairchilds stumble upon a dying man in the Piazza Farnese. Mysterious characters from Rome resurface in Tuscany. And somebody is intent on sabotaging Francesca’s new business. It’s up to Faith to put everything right—and still whip up a mean Spaghetti a la Foriana, of course!
