Overview

Everybody knows the Mantoni girls are attractive, and theoretically, that's a good thing, right? Only this time, a charming but older millionaire desires the most beautiful Mantoni, Annalisa, as his lover for the Christmas season. Her cousin, Carlina, is disgusted by the liaison and says she'd rather see him dead than at Annalisa's side.

The next day, her wish is fulfilled. The charmer is dead, strangled with a pair of pantyhose which comes straight from her own luxurious lingerie store, Temptation. Now she's got a problem. How can she explain to the attractive commissario, Stefano Garini, that she didn't do it? Will suspicion kill the fragile beginnings of a relationship between them? And will they find the killer before Christmas becomes too dangerous?

Charmer's Death is the second in the cozy mystery series Temptation in Florence.

About the Author

Beate Boeker is a USA Today bestselling author with a passion for books that brim over with mischief & humor. She writes sweet sophisticated romantic fiction and cozy mysteries, many of them set in beautiful Italy.

Beate's first novel was published in 2008 by Avalon Books. In the meantime, her work was shortlisted for the Golden Quill Contest, the National Readers' Choice Award, the "Best Indie Books" contest, and the RONE Award.

She's also a marketing manager with a degree in International Business Administration, and her daily ex­perience in marke­ting continuously provides her with a wide range of fodder for her novels, be it hilarious or cynical. Widely traveled, she speaks German (her mother language), English, French and Italian and lives in Germany together with her husband and daughter. If people came with instructions, hers would say, "Make sure she'll always get enough chocolate and sleep, and she'll be a sunny companion."

While "Boeker" means "books" in a German dialect, her first name Beate can be translated as "Happy" . . . and with a name that reads "Happy Books," what else could she do but write novels with a happy ending?
