First I've ever read of this series although I have another one in Mt. TBR ... it wasn't bad but it didn't really do a lot for me either. Like quite a few cozies I have encountered, I thought the main character (Angie) was a bit lacking in the common sense department. I was a bit intrigued by her policeman boyfriend. Don't think I will go out of my way to read this series though.

A classic murder mystery set today. Everyone is trapped at an inn by a horrible rain storm. One person is missing while another is found dead. Could the crimes have been the result of all the horrible food being served?

My first Angie Amalfi Mystery. She doesn't appear to be too bright sometimes. Will need to read other Amalfi Mysteries to determine if I like and will continue reading her series.

I'd probably give this 2.5 stars if I could. I didn't care for the setting and tone of this book, but I will stay with the series, at least for now.
If ghosts, creepy old houses are your interest..join Angie and Paavo for a haunted vacation. interesting characters, ghosts and murder.
Not bad as far as mysteries go. Mystery lovers would probably appreciate this one better than me. =)
This was an okay read for a cozy. Not inspired to pursue other books in the series though.
