    One thought on “Killer Cannoli”

    1. Fun and EnjoyableI didn't read the first book in the series, but I will surely do so now that I've read book 2 (and I'm gonna check out book 3). I really enjoyed this book. Claire is a very likable person and interesting. I like her relationship with her father, and her realness about digging in her heels when it comes to Brian. Who would listen to a guy who never called anyway? Claire may have inherited this PI Agency but she's a remarkably strong woman, strong-willed and a grand PI. Look forwa [...]

    2. Claire is still working at the PI business, but this time it's personal. Her Aunt Lena is enamored with a new customer, and Claire's father is worried. Something doesn't jive. About the same time Claire determines Joe has no history, he ends up dead and somebody is looking for something and thinks Aunt Lena or Claire have it. As always, Brian tells her to leave the murder to the police, but the stakes are too high. Claire's associate Ed and nice looking Alex add to the complications. This is a f [...]

    3. I didn't read the first book in this series and to be honest I doubt that I'll go back to look for it. This book was just OK for me.My biggest pet peeve was that the timing was all off. At one point you'd read that Detective Corrigan is standing with Claire, then suddenly he's at the police station, and within what seems like only minutes he's back at her side in another location. And even though she treats him pretty badly he's constantly at her beck and call, day or night. I also found the sto [...]

    4. Excellent read.Loved the interaction of the players. Showed the importance of love for the family. The interplay of the two men for her protection was hilarious at times.

    5. Maybe I lost a bit by not reading #1 first, but Claire DeNardo does not seem to enjoy being a PI. She inherited her uncle's business, but doesn't seem that into private investigating as a career. Maybe that's why it's called the Terrified Detective series? Maybe the Reluctant Detective? I felt that Claire would be better suited to the cozies where the heroine is NOT a detective but sometimes acts as one; seems a bit off to be so reluctant when it's actually your job.When her aunt's boyfriend is [...]

    6. I'd give this 5 stars if it weren't for the ending which I know she'll have to deal with sometime later. Plus, it's a dangerous game she's playing with. My other complaint is our detective keeps saying she's scared,afraid or terrified. Yeah, we get it, you don't need to keep pounding it in. Otherwise, the story was well-written and it was an enjoyable read. Claire is the fraidy cat P.I. and when her aunt's new beau is murdered in her aunt's bakery and cafe, her aunt wants her to find out who mur [...]

    7. Received this as a free book from one of the daily free book blogs I belong to. It sounded interesting and I'm so glad I selected. There were many twists and turns in this book. I was so sure one person was the kidnapper and fell for a red herringh! The ending was a surprise and there were a lot of laughs. I love the bond between Claire, her dad and her Aunt Lena. Am starting to reading book #1 in the Terrified Detective Mystery series, Plateful of Murder. Create cozy mysteryy worth reading.

    8. This mystery is charming and scary at the same time. Claire must help her aunt, who recently and unknowingly starting dating a mobster. The mobster is killed at Aunt Lena's cafe, Cannoli's and here is where the mystery begins. Claire must find some answers while treading lightly with detective Corrigan, who she has feelings for. She is pulled into the mystery when her aunt is kidnapped and Claire thinks she is the only one that can save her. Excellent characters and kept me on the edge of my sea [...]

    9. The "Terrified Detective" seemed like a very lame imitation of Kinsey Millhone or Stephanie Plum. Not as serious and good as Kinsey, not as entertaining as Stephanie. Maybe I would have understood more about her motivations and relationships if I had read the first book in the series before this one, but I mostly found the main character to be silly and irritating. The fact that she survives all her misadventures is due to either luck or the men coming to her rescue, not to anything she does. No [...]

    10. Page turnerClaire inherited a detective agency from her retired uncle and business was slow. Her Aunt Lena met a new man, one Claire's dad did not like, so he asked her to check into Larry's background. Too bad he was murdered in Lena's restaurant before she got the chance.d everything snowballed from there. Quick moving clean cozy. Suitable for sll

    11. Mob TalesClaire DeNardo's Aunt Lena, has a date with unattractive, weasel-looking, Larry-aka Joey Corozza. While waiting for Lena to finish getting ready for their date, someone shoots Larry, while at Canolli's, the family restaurant. Interesting story with Claire always being stubborn and putting herself in danger.

    12. GoodThis book was good and busy with details. I enjoyed Claire but it seemed she was a little overwhelmed at the end of the book s

    13. Good mysteryLove a good mystery and this one delivers! Carole Fowkes delivers in this book I can only compare to a Stephanie Plum book.
