In this 6th delightful culinary mystery from Joanne Pence, dilettante chef Angie Amalfi plans a romantic cruise with her hunky boyfriend, but hits rough water when murder becomes part of the itinerary.
Food writer and culinary entrepreneur Angie Amalfi imagined a high seas cruise aboard a ship bound for Acapulco with her homicide detective boyfriend Paavo Smith would be heaven. With no crowds or pending police business, it might even provide Paavo the perfect opportunity to propose.
But Angie's "Love Boat" fantasy starts springing leaks almost immediately, beginning with the cook's bizarre attempt to jump ship...in the middle of the ocean! Add an oddball collection of fellow passengers, yawningly unimaginative onboard meals, Paavo's increasingly bizarre behavior, and the fact that someone's been rifling through her luggage, and Angie's soon ready to leap overboard herself. But it's not until she offers to help out in the galley and murder is abruptly added to the menu that Angie finds herself heading into very dangerous waters indeed.

A Taste For Murder
Food writer Angie Amalfi's long-awaited vacation with her detective boyfriend Paavo Smith has all the ingredients of a romantic getaway'-a sail to Acapulco aboard a freighter, no crowds, no homicide department worries, a red bikini. It's the perfect scenario for a proposal.
But it isn't long before Angie's "Love Boat" fantasies are headed for stormy seas-'the cook tries to jump off the ship, Paavo is acting mighty strange, the fellow passengers are an odd lot, Angie's luggage is rifled through, and the meals are terribly unimaginative. She's willing to help out in the kitchen, but when murder is added to the menu, Angie thinks maybe the cook had the right idea.About the Author:
