I've been reading the Angie Amalfi series this summer simply because they're quick and easy reads, even if they aren't all that great – especially because Angie is incredibly annoying. However, this book was surprisingly great!

Angie and Paavo are headed to Jackpot, Arizona to help some of Paavo's friends from his childhood find answers to a mysterious death. When they arrive, the mystery only continues to deepen. Angie was hoping to find the perfect destination wedding location in Jackpot, but i
Well, at least Angie was a bit less self-absorbed than she has been in some of the previous books. She the spoiled, youngest daughter of Italian immigrant that are an American success story and are very well off. She doesn't think she's spoiled (of course); but she is. While I admire her striving and continual tenacity to find a career for herself; but frankly, she is her own worst enemy. In one book, she was totally consumed by the details of her engagement party - not her wedding - her engagem ...more

Another delightful Angie Amalfi adventure. Angie is her delightful self as Paarvo and she head to a guest ranch in Arizona. While there Paarvo investigates the murders of old friends. Angie learns about recipe book by the chef from Walton Hotel in New York City that was lost in the area. Angie spend her time looking for the book and turning down meals from a self appointed "great" cook.
fun book with twist and turns for angie and paavo.
I liked this book, and I've read one other in the 'Angie Amalfi' series. Because I don't particularly feel any affinity for the main character, these are not among my favorite mysteries. This one, however, had a good story.
I don't usually read books out of order, but I needed this book for a challenge. It was not difficult to fall into the story and sorta catch up with the characters. Fairly good storyline and believeable characters.

meh. Didn't really love the characters. Perhaps if I had read in order. Not likely to read another...
I quit reading by page 50 ... an ok read, but not really grabbing me.
This series kept getting better and better.
