Culinary queen Angie Amalfi has put aside her gourmet utensils to concentrate on planning her upcoming wedding to San Francisco homicide detective Paavo Smith. What could possibly go wrong?
Instead of the answer to her heart's dreams, she scrambles to deal with wedding planners with bizarre ideas, wedding dresses that don't flatter, squabbling relatives with hurt feelings, a long-suffering groom, and worries over where she and Paavo will live after the wedding. But all of that pales when Angie finds the perfect house for them, except for one little problem--the house may be haunted.
Many years ago, the newlyweds who lived in the house were murdered, and the case was never solved. While Angie pursues what happened to the couple who now may be haunting the house, Paavo obsesses over his own case involving the murder of unlikely lovers. The trail leads to ghosts, murders, unhappy families, and enough obnoxious wedding buttinskis to fill a graveyard. But when eerie happenings turn deadly, Angie fears she may be spirited away for good!

I love books that grab me right from the start. .this book did, I loved it! Also anxious to try Spagettie carbonara! Sounds wonderful!
Strange but imaginative
This author has a way with words that help visualize scenery and characters. Love the main character, but her job situation is a bit drawn out. This book has a lot of action and is a great read!
Cooking Spirits is another nice read from Joanna Pence. Well crafted, engaging. Nice to see old familiar characters gaining new depth and dimension. Certainly worth the price, and a great introduction to a new series of Angie Amalfi mysteries. And the recipe for spaghetti carbonara is absolutely dynamite! Highly recommended for light escape reading.
