Spotlight: COOKS, CROOKS AND A CORPSE : Baker Girls Cozy Mystery Book 1 by Maria Grazia Swan

Synopsis (from Amazon)

Can't resist lighthearted comedy dressed with a little mystery that never takes you down a dark road?

Good, because that’s what you get when you put two hot Italian imports together. Meet the hot pink Fiat 500 and its owner, real estate agent Monica Baker. 

Now stir in a dead body, a caterer about to lose her license, a real estate office coming off the rails, a goofy Great Dane, and a lively heroine who can’t help falling for the brooding bad boy. This is the world of Monica Baker: a high-speed mystery with a serving of mischief and a side of laughs.

Psst... only 99 cents until May 10th!

Book Trivia from Maria Grazia Swan:

When I started this new series I wanted to insert as much of my real life details as possible. Here are a few examples:

Like Monica, I sell Real Estate in Phoenix, Arizona

I’m from Italy, but have US Citizenship.

I married, and divorced an American man.

I learned how to drive in a Fiat 500.

I owned and loved to death a goofy Great Dane.

I often hike the 40th street trails.

I love Amaretti di Saronno and spinach balls.

And last, Monica’s version of recipes, is what I do when I cook for myself.

I haven't read this one yet, but humor and mystery sound good to me!
