The Body in the Piazza (A Faith Fairchild mystery) by Katherine Hall Page (William Morrow hardcover, 30 April 2013).
Faith and her husband are off to Italy, sans offspring, to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary. They spend a few days in Rome before heading to Tuscany to attend the inaugural session of a cooking school run by Faith's former assistant Francesca Rossi.
Between learning how to cook scrumptious Italian foods like biscotti and authentic Tuscan ragu, Faith and Tom try to figure out who is trying to ruin things for the Rossis and why.
