Overview

New from New York Times bestselling author Sheila Connolly!

Laura Shumway couldn't say why she'd agreed to go on the class reunion trip to Italy. Maybe it was to take stock of her life, or maybe it was just to catch up with old friends, take in the sights, and relax in the beautiful Tuscan countryside. Either way, she knew she'd discover a lot on the trip, about both herself and her former classmates. What she didn't expect to discover was the dead body of esteemed professor Anthony Gilbert.

Gilbert had had a long and illustrious career at the college. Now retired to Italy, he appeared as a surprise guest speaker at the women's vacation villa, still disarmingly handsome, still charming, but not nearly so eminent in the eyes of Laura's classmates. As a young professor all those years ago, Gilbert used his position and looks to seduce and then cast aside many of his young and impressionable students, and at least some of the women on this trip had been hurt by his false promises of love. The kind of hurt that runs deep and may have given any number of them a motive for murder.

Before the polizia or carabiniere get involved, Laura and a few trusted classmates set out among the vineyards and hills of the Italian Riviera to solve the murder on their own. With the help of some influential locals and good old-fashioned detective work, they're soon led to the conclusion that one of their classmates might be a killer-and what started as a trip to see how far they'd all come may turn into a stark lesson about just how far one of them would go.

    Wonderful, rich book with gorgeous Italian setting. Gradually unfolds in a leisurely manner, allowing the reader to get to know the narrator and her former Wellesley classmates. All are accomplished, intelligent, and fairly well-established women who, on a reunion trip, find murder on their vacation. Very enjoyable book with surprises gradually revealed about the narrator, her friend and former roommate, and the murder victim. I could almost see and taste the delights of Italy. Not only did I like Laura, the narrator, but I'd very much like to see more of her and her former roommate, Cynthia, in a series of books.

    It took me awhile to get into this book, there is a lot of beautiful Italian background that came before the actual story did.
    This story is about Laura, a forty something gal who decides to go on a class reunion trip to Italy with 40 class mates she hasn't seen or talked to in about as many years.
    This will be more of a relaxing vacation than anything else she tells herself. All the ladies are staying at a Villa that is hosting a talk with professor Anthony Gilbert who taught all the gals back in the day and until recently still taught at Wellsley where they all went to school.
    When this handsome yet, now elderly professor turns up dead, many of Laura's classmates seem to have hurt feelings about affairs of the heart that went on may years ago with this charming man. Laura and her high school chum Cynthia decide to become detectives and find out what really is going on with this class trip of brokenhearts and just maybe a killer who did in the aging romeo.
    This book is a wonderful snapshot of Italy, the author paints a wonderful picture of what the actual trip might have been like as well as what it might have yasted like!
    This is a mystery without violence or ugly language, an enjoyable read.

    Not her best

    Very flat. Did not finish. Skipped to see who did it. No action. Too much thinking.

    This title is simply not able to keep the reader hooked. Sorry to say this, but I didn't manage to get to its end. It just doesn't deliver as described.
