(2023)
(The fourth book in the Catering Hall Mystery series)
A novel by

 
 
In this fresh and witty cozy mystery series set amid an extended Italian-American family in Astoria, Queens, catering hall owner and amateur sleuth Mia Carina must solve a murder on the set of a reality show.

The June events schedule at Belle View is busting out all over—proms, graduations, and of course, weddings. There are unexpected bookings too, including a casting call for the pilot of
Dons of Ditmars Boulevard. But soon, Mia’s fears about the cheesy reality show are confirmed . . .
 
Belle View quickly becomes the site of a sea of wanna-be goombahs and phony girlfriends, and some of Mia’s friends insist on getting in on the action. The production company owner and his executive producer ex-wife—who’s also
very minor British royalty—have assembled a motley crew that does as much infighting and backstabbing as the on-screen “talent.” Even so, it’s a shock when a dead body is found in the pool house of a local mansion rented by the show . . .
 
Murder might boost the ratings. But Mia intends to make sure the killer gets jail time, not airtime . . .
 
Italian recipes included!
