In Too Many Women in the Room businesswoman Gilda Greco finds herself too close to murder for comfort when several of her friends are suspected of killing a scoundrel. The problem is they have all been involved with him, as in tabloid-worthy involved. Her significant other, a sexy local police detective, isn't keen about her getting in the middle of his investigation, but what else can she do when so many people she cares about are in the police spotlight?
Gudioccio masterly pulls the reader in with her finely detailed scenes, a strong and very likable female lead and an intriguing plot. Add to all of that: Italian and Greek food worthy of leaving your diet for and you have a flashlight-worthy mystery that leaves you hungry for fine food and another Guidoccio tale.
Filled with delicious cuisine, complex characters, and a murder mystery, this story will leave you guessing until the very end!
Lottery winner, Gilda Greco, secretly invests in a Greek restaurant owned by friends David and Susan Korba. A pre-opening celebration where she plans to announce the big news turns sour when womanizing Michael Taylor shows up to dinner. Anger and resentment stew, ruining Gilda's big night.
The next morning Michael turns up dead, but who did it? Everyone is a suspect. Gilda's worry for her friends and her investment in Xenia drive her to launch her own investigation with the help of her sometimes love interest, Detective Carlo Fantin.
Will they solve the crime before someone else dies?
I give Too Many Women in The Room 5 lovely kisses
Gilda Greco ( A Season for killing Blondes) returns in Ms Guidoccio's latest mystery involving the Canadian lottery winner. After investing in David and Susan Korba's restaurant, Gilda is excited to be silent partner in a venture that she thinks will be a success. When David invites a local photographer to a soft opening though, an opening than filled with many of Gilda's closest female friends, what promises to be an evening filled with good food and friends turns into an acrimonious disaster with the photographer - a glorious wretch who slept with half the women at the dinner - being murdered.
The suspect pool Gilda's on again/off again lover, Det. Carlo Fantini has to choose from compromise all the women present at the dinner, the wait staff and even the chef.
Once again, Joanne Guidoccio has given her readers a plumb good mystery. I can usually figure out who the killer is in most mysteries, but this one had me guessing and guessing again until the killer was revealed. I love that! I love that an author could stump me. Kudos and Brava!
Oh, And did I mention the food? Gilda is every Italian mother's dream child - complete with aunts, cousins, and a mother who loves nothing more than to cook for her. As a wonderful added gift, there are several recipes from Joanne's and Gilda's recipe files at the back of the book that I will be making for sure!
I highly recommend this good book. 5 well deserved stars from me!
In this second book Gilda has just helped two of her friends, David and Susan Korba, open a new restaurant called Xenia. While she kept this a secret from her other friends they were all mad when they learn the truth.
When someone they all know is found dead many of her friends have reasons for wanting him dead but will they discover who it was in time. With Gilda having issues with her on-off boyfriend, detective Carlo Fantin can they put their issues aside and concentrate on finding the murderer before anyone else winds up dead?
I liked this book but I found for me personally there was sometimes way too much drama between all of the women. One moment someone wasn't speaking to someone and then something else would happen and somebody else was mad. I know it is frequent in everyday life but sometimes I need to escape the drama of real life and then I turn to books to escape.
I like Gilda's character but as she adjusts to her lottery winnings she seems to be torn between different friends. She has her back up with Carlo's daughter Tania and both are trying to get control over Carlo's affections. I really like how she is trying to help people with her job but in this story we don't get to see much of that.
The group of women is definitely interesting and although they have their disputes they still seem to support each other.
I was surprised to learn what the victim was hiding and wasn't surprised at what happened to him although I was shocked at who did it!
