After her philandering husband’s boat went down, newly single Mia Carina went back to Astoria, the bustling Queens neighborhood of her youth. Living with her Nonna and her oversized cat, Doorstop, she’s got a whole new life—including some amateur sleuthing . . .
Mia is starting work at Belle View, her father’s catering hall, a popular spot for weddings, office parties, and more—despite the planes that occasionally roar overhead on their way to LaGuardia and rattle the crystal chandelier. Soon she’s planning a bachelor party for a less-than-gentlemanly groom. But it goes awry when the gigantic cake is wheeled in and a deadly surprise is revealed . . . Since some of her family’s associates are on the shady side, the NYPD wastes no time in casting suspicion on Mia’s father. Now, Mia’s going to have to use all her street smarts to keep him out of Rikers Island . . . Italian recipes included!
*I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.

What a fantastic start to a new cozy series! Mia moves back home after some massive drama revolving around the disappearance of her cheating husband. This has made her quite leary but a fresh start should make it better. Living with her Nonna she starts working for her dad at a catering hall. Her first two events are underway when she finds a dead woman inside the cake that she should have popped out of. To make it worse she recognizes her which gives.Her warning that the cops will accuse her dad though they might give her a hard time as well after her other drama. Makes for great mystery as it all plays out. Full of a range of characters, lots of cultural references, mystery, and small town charm making for a story you won't want to stop reading. Makes you a little hungry too after the food references. Total must read for cozy fans. I totally loved it so I give it 5/5 stars.
