I have always loved mysteries. As a child I would end up solving the mystery before The Boxcar Child or Nancy Drew. As adult I enjoy cozy mysteries with punny titles. and You Cannoli Die Once was no different. I enjoyed this sweet cozy mystery that reminded me a little bit of the Stephanie Plum novels, complete with the crazy Italian family.
