Maggie White, a downsized American executive stuck in Rome on her husband’s expat assignment, is finding the dolce vita isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. She’s taken a job offering painting instruction to well-heeled travelers on a luxury tour and her boss—a rather unpleasant English lord—has turned up dead in his penthouse. Maggie’s left with a palazzo full of suspicious guests, a valuable painting her boss might have stolen, and a policeman who’s decided she’s the prime suspect. Now Maggie must keep the tour up and running while she tracks the killer and works to clear her name.

Review of Murder in the Piazza
Review (4 Stars): Murder in the Piazza was a sweet fun mystery set in one of my favorite locations. Maggie has moved to Italy to follow her husband’s job and after years in the corporate world, takes a position as a tour guide. Her new job sounds heavenly helping guests learn to paint in her new beautiful location but her boss has her wanting to quit daily. When he ends up dead, Maggie must figure out the clues before she is blamed for a murder she didn’t commit.
This is the first book in a brand new series and I think we are off to a good start. Maggie was an enjoyable character that you will definitely connect with and I couldn’t get enough of the Italian location. Looking forward to reading more about Maggie and this adorable mystery series.
