Overview

Seasoned Italian-American Alberta Scaglione can whip up a traditional dish for any occasion. But when an impromptu vacation turns deadly, can she sift out the deadly ingredient?
 
When her granddaughter lands a reporting gig at the grand opening of the luxurious Icicle Lodge, Alberta and friends tag along for a week of much-needed R&R amid the snowcapped hills of northeastern Pennsylvania. But the idyllic winter getaway becomes a nightmare after the gang discovers blood on the ice—and the dead body of celebrity guest Pamela Gregory, a frosty Olympic gold medal figure skater who won herself more enemies than fans . . .
 
With a killer on the loose, multiple suspects, and a blizzard on the way, Alberta must now race to crack a bone-chilling case . . . before the outspoken Ferrara ladies get served murder: family style!
 
Includes Italian recipes from Alberta’s kitchen!
 
Praise for Murder on Memory Lake
 
“Griffo launches a series with something for everyone: eager young newshounds, well-seasoned sleuths, and a stash of Italian recipes (some gluten-free) to boot.”

This is the 3rd in series and a perfect Holiday theme read ! I love the setting, the mystery and the charcters. I have read the previous in series and always enjoy returning to this series. Thank you for the advance reading copy to the publisher and to Net Galley. My review opinions are my own.. I was very impressed right away that this reminded me of Dame Agatha Christie and her winter time mysteries.. This is the perfect setting of a mysterious luxury lodge in the snow during the holiday time. I love the descriptions of the various charcters staying at the lodge and the accommodations. Alberta tags along with her Granddaughter when she has a gig at a luxury lodge with her Aunt and Alberta's sister in law as company. Soon after they arrive celebrity guest Pamela Gregory is found murdered on the ice skating rink. To make matters worse, a terrible snow blizzard leaves everyone trapped at the lodge. Now Alberta and her Granddaughter and her sisters must find out what happened and hope to solve the mystery before another murder occurs. Tempers flare among the guests with everyone snowbound as the investigation continues. I love this sleuth with all the differing charcters among the perfect murder setting. This was enjoyable to read cover to cover and I look forward to the next in series. Very well done to the author.

The Ferrara ladies are going on vacation, thanks to Jinx. Invited to a new lodge that is opening and featuring a famous olympic gold medal ice skater making her return to the rink, Jinx was given two rooms to attend the opening festivities and interview the former olympian. To make it into a girls’ trip, Jinx brings Alberta, Helen and Joyce with her. To Alberta’s surprise, their local Police chief was also going to surprise the ladies with two rooms to the event as well. Instead, the ladies are their guys head to the lodge together. While Vinny is enamored with Pamela, the ex olympian figure skater, the woman’s true colors begin to show and it is clear she is not America’s sweetheart. When the woman is found murdered on the ice skating rink and a blizzard hits, Vinny goes missing and everyone is trapped at the resort with the murderer. Lots of secrets, lies and suspects even with a small group of thirteen at the resort. But will the Ferrara ladies be able to figure it out and find Vinny before one of them becomes the next victim. This is a fantastic and fun series that has burst onto the scene and taken a firm hold in the cozy world. Young or old, man or woman, you will find that you relate to one of the characters in the series. Looking forward to many more outings with the Ferrara ladies.

When Jinx lands a reporting gig at the grand opening of a luxury lodge, she immediately invites her grandmother Alberta and her two aunts to come along with her for a week of rest and relaxation. But the perfect winter vacation becomes a nightmare after they discover celebrity guest Pamela Gregory murdered on the ice skating rink. To make matters worse, a blizzard leaves everyone trapped at the lodge. With no help arriving anytime soon, the Ferrara women decide to do their own investigation before the killer strikes again. Murder at Icicle Lodge is a well-written, entertaining cozy mystery with engaging, quirky characters, a cozy winter setting, and a suspenseful murder mystery. The author provides plenty of red herrings to throw the reader off the scent. It kept me turning the pages and the shocking reveal at the end left my head spinning. If you like cozies set in winter, then this is the perfect read for you. It will make you want to curl up by the fire with a blanket and a cup of hot cocoa. I will be reading future books in this series and can't wait to solve more mysteries with the Ferrara women. Thank you to NetGalley and Kensington Books for the opportunity to read this ARC in exchange for an honest review
