The Mantonis are going on vacation! Carlina & Stefano are looking forward to relaxing in Italy's Forte dei Marmi, the elegant seaside resort on the Ligurian Sea, but the holidays have hardly begun when their hotel manager is shot.
For once, Florentine policeman Stefano Garini isn't responsible for investigating the crime, but when the local police become convinced that Carlina's young cousin, Ernesto, is the killer, the Mantoni family is up in arms: Stefano has to clear Ernesto, and presto, please! Only Ernesto doesn't help at all, and things come to a climax when one of the Mantonis disappears without a trace . . .
Murder, mayhem, and Mantonis, mixed with some great summer feelings, turn this cozy mystery into stellar entertainment.

Seaside Death is the fifth in the cozy mystery series Temptation in Florence.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More Fun with the Mantonis I've read all of the Temptation in Florence books and enjoyed them all. This time Carolina Mantoni invites her policeman boyfriend Stefano along on a family vacation - a brave move on her part - and, even braver, Stefano accepts. The family has hardly settled in when the obnoxious hotel manager is murdered. When Carlina's young cousin is accused of the crime, the family expects Stefano to prove him innocent, but the evidence against him is strong, so strong in fact that even Carolina has to wonder exactly what her cousin is up to. The characters are unique and impossible not to fall in love with; the setting is equally irresistible, and the story moves along at a fast pace. In short, this is the perfect book to read when you're fed up with the real world. It's good, light-hearted fun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For cozy mystery fans and lovers of Italy I was lucky enough to get an advanced review copy of this book. I loved that the action in this book in the series moved out of Florence to Forte dei Marmi, a seaside vacation spot I know well. The descriptions brought back lots of great memories. I love cozies with their humor and touch of romance along with the mystery, so I had a great time reading this book. It delivered on all the points. The author has created a fun mix of characters, and a cute couple in Carlina and Stefano. I look forward to the next one!
