Mystery writer, Vic is back at home on the Jersey Shore and working in her Nonna's Italian Restaurant, Casa Lido and she wants to learn the business, she's also trying to learn the business along side her ex-lover, Tim who also works in the kitchen.With permission from her grandmother, she gets to prepare the meatballs for the family Italian wedding soup, that any Italian would savor, Vic and Tim are to cater for a wedding reception at the Belmont Beach Country Club.

Once at the country club Vic gets more than she bargained for when she has to deal with the demanding bride, and some arrogant chefs in the kitchen. The President of the Belmont Country Club, Elizabeth is then found dead on the beach and Vic soon discovers that, there was more to President Elizabeth than met the eye with a growing list of suspects, and with Vic and Casa Lido soon mixed up in Elizabeth's murder. Vic along with her mystery writer's know how and a pad and pen with her fiesty sister-in-law, Sofia try to put their sleuthing skills to work to find Elizabeth's killer.

This  mystery is reminiscent of Murder She Wrote, with Vic being a mystery writer solving murders, finding killers and that is what I loved about The Wedding Soup murder. Being a fan of Murder She Wrote I know I will love this series, With her trusty pad and pen, and her spunky sister-in-law Sofia, they were a match that can't be beat, great characters that make you want to keep reading, they have a chemistry. The Wedding Soup Murder had me hungry for more and I can't wait to read and review the next in the series.
