Meet the Mantoni family. This zany Italian family will become dear to your heart, even if they exasperate you from time to time. But you won't be alone in this: The heroine Carlina dearly loves her family, even if she could murder them from time to time -- and homicide inspector Stefano Garini is just as torn in two about the Mantoni clan. They get to know each other in the first book, and it'll take some time (and murders) until they're a couple. These mysteries will make you laugh and will probably fill you with a longing to travel to Italy right away.
