This is an enjoyable, fast summertime read, which takes you to the jersey shore and beyond.
~Mystery Playground
If you’re a beach lover, and especially if you’re an aficionado of Italian cuisine, you’ll love this book (and the Italian Kitchen series) with the delicious recipes, busy kitchen, wonderful characters, and of course the Jersey Shore and Boardwalk! I highly recommend A Dish Best Served Cold by Rosie Genova, and grant it our highest rating of Five Kitties.

The national bestselling author of The Wedding Soup Murder returns to the Jersey Shore where a killer is stirring up trouble during a hurricane…
At the Casa Lido, the end of summer means a party, and hit whodunit writer Victoria “Vic” Rienzi and her family are cooking like crazy for the restaurant’s seventieth anniversary celebration. As they chop onions and garlic, old family friend Pete Petrocelli stops by, saying he knows something that would make for a good mystery novel. Curious, Vic asks Nonna to elaborate on Pete’s claim and learns of a relative who mysteriously disappeared back in Italy…
The night of the party brings a crowd—and a full throttle hurricane. When the storm finally passes, everyone thinks they’re in the clear—until the first casualty is found, and it’s Pete. Remembering his visit, Vic isn’t certain Pete’s death was an accident and decides to dig deeper into his story. What she finds is meatier than Nonna’s sauce…
Genova head and shoulders high res

My review;

This is Book 3 in the series by Rosie Genova called "An Italian Kitchen Mystery".  This book is called "A Dish Best Served Cold". I have to say that being Italian and one who loves to cook I couldn't wait to read this. I was unable to read the first two in the series. I really enjoyed this story.  It is a wonderful mystery full of twists, turns, weird characters and always food and cooking.  Victoria Rienzi is trying to help her family celebrate the 70th annivesary of the restaurant's opening. The plan is to have it outside but, a hurricane decides to come to the party, too. After the party a body is found. He is an older man, a old family friend that has fallen on bad times. Who would want to kill him? Is it really a murder? Victoria feels as if she has to find out what really happened. I give this book a 5/5. I was given this book for the purpose of a review and all opinions are my own.
