The first of a new series and new author for me and has a unique plot. I found this book hard to rate. I finally gave 3 stars but would have given it 3.5 stars, if I could. I found it difficult to bonds with the characters. The text did flow easily. I felt The characters need more development. The ending is no surprise.

An elderly senior, Alberta Scaglione has inherited a cottage from her Aunt. The house is located on the banks of a man-made lake called Memory located in Tranquility, New Jersey. Shortly after moving into the cottage, she located a body floating in the Lake. With her niece, Alberta forms a detective agency to solve the case. Alberta goes undercover as a Secretary to former high school friend. Will this group of women be able to clear Alberta’s name before she is arrested? I recommend this book. Italian recipes are included.
