Overview

Have you met the Mantonis? This eccentric Italian family has a fatal tendency to fall over dead bodies, and their unique reactions to murder will keep you giggling all through the night.
In this first book of the series, the sudden death of the grandfather, Nico, threatens to put a stop to Emma's opulent wedding. Unacceptable, says the bride, and in true Mantoni style, she hides the body until the festivities are over.
But when it turns out Nico was poisoned, the attractive commissario, Stefano Garini, is called in to solve the case. Taciturn and sardonic, he couldn't be more different from the exuberant Mantoni clan. But they say opposites attract . . . and Carlina, his prime Mantoni suspect, certainly makes his heart beat faster than allowed. Will they find the murderer while falling in love?
Delayed Death is the first 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?
