Spotlight - The Seven Course Christmas Killer

Today I'd like to shine a spotlight on The Seven Course Christmas Killer: A Holiday Novella from the Italian Kitchen by Rosie Genova. Rosie is self publishing this novella as an e-book. Sadly, Rosie's Italian Kitchen Mystery series was one of the many wonderful cozy series cancelled by Penguin Random House.


On Christmas Eve, someone might be sleeping with the fishes . . .

It’s December at the Casa Lido, which means only one thing: the Rienzi family’s traditional Christmas Eve celebration, including wine, song, and seven Italian seafood courses. As Victoria and Tim prep scungilli and calamari, Nonna directs the cooking until all is in readiness for the big night.

But the holiday cheer is interrupted by the attempted murder of Mayor Anne McCrae, who asks Vic to investigate. Trouble is, there are as many suspects as there are fishes on the Christmas Eve menu . . .

“The tastiest item on the menu with colorful characters, a sharp plot, and a fabulous Jersey setting. I enjoyed every bite.” —New York Times bestselling author Jenn McKinlay on Murder and Marinara

About the Author:

A Jersey girl born and bred, national bestselling author Rosie Genova left her heart at the shore, which serves as the setting for much of her work. Her series, the Italian Kitchen Mysteries, is informed by her appreciation for good food and her love of classic mysteries from Nancy Drew to Miss Marple. Her debut novel, Murder and Marinara, was named a 2013 Best Pick by Suspense Magazine and was a finalist for a 2014 Daphne Award. The proud mama of three grown sons, Rosie still lives in her home state with her husband and a charming mutt named Lucy.


  1. Hey Kathy,

    Can't thank you enough for featuring my new release here to day--you were my very first reviewer of Murder and Marinara, and I've been so grateful for your support ever since. Have a wonderful holiday season!

  2. I'm so glad Rosie is once again publishing! I attended a wonderful session by her at CT Fiction a year ago and was hooked by her talent and insight as a writer. --kate
