Free cozy mystery set in Florence

This novel will always remain in my memory because we discussed during breakfast how likely it is that you can strangle someone with a pair of pantyhose. My husband declared it was impossible because the material stretches so much, but I was not so sure. We finally decided to test it on a teddy bear and started out with much gusto - but in the end, we couldn't go through. The teddy bear looked at us with his sad eyes, so we simply had to pat his head, placed him back where he belonged, and did our test with a cushion. The result? It's possible, but you have to be prepared for the stretching! Research done, I was able to finish this cozy mystery . . .

Here's the blurb for Charmer's Death:

What do you do when your best customer seduces your beautiful cousin? You try to save the situation, but it becomes a little harder than planned when he's found strangled with a pair of brand new pantyhose that come straight from your own store Temptation - the most luxurious lingerie store in Florence, Italy.

Next, a disturbing diary crops up that lists the former lovers of the dead man, creating chaos in more than one home. Carlina has her hands full with managing her store at its peak season, preparing the Christmas fair, and dodging her mother, who has discovered fortune telling as the next big thing. Her feelings for the attractive Inspector Garini don't help at all as she desperately tries to find the murderer before it's too late.

Charmer's Death is the second in the series Temptation in Florence, and it's free from May 15 to May 19, 2013!
You can download it now from Amazon:

Charmer's Death is on my Kindle, waiting impatiently to be read, especially now that I know a diary plays a part in the plot. Love diaries. (Please don't tell me I'm nosy;I prefer curious.)I've read the other two Temptation in Florence and highly recommend them. Yes, I'm reading them out of order, but that doesn't matter, the characters and situations are so much fun, they stand on their own very well.

This book sounds mysterious and loads of fun. I downloaded Charmer's Death and moved it to the top of my "to read" list.
