What do you do when you find your grandfather dead half an hour before your cousin’s wedding? You hide him in his bed and tell everyone he didn’t feel like coming.

Delayed Death is an entertaining mystery set in Florence, Italy. When Carlina finds her grandfather dead on the day of her cousin’s wedding, she decides to hide the corpse until after the ceremony. However, her grandfather was poisoned, and she becomes the attractive Inspector’s prime suspect. On top of that, she has to manage her boisterous family and her luxurious lingerie store called Temptation, a juggling act that creates many hilarious situations.


Beate Boeker - Author PhotoI love books with touches of humor and mischief. It doesn’t matter if they’re romances or mysteries or biographies – as long as they make me chuckle, count me in.

Avalon Books in New York published three of my sweet romance novels as hardcovers. “A Little Bit of Passion” and “Take My Place” were both nominated for The Golden Quill Contest 2011/2012, and on top of that, “A Little Bit of Passion” was also a finalist in the National Readers’ Choice Award 2011. When Avalon Books was sold to Amazon, these stories became also available as paperbacks and e-books.

If you feel like a short trip abroad, try out my romance with a hint of mystery “A New Life” – it’s set in Florence, Italy. This novel was also listed as a semi-finalist in the “Best Indie Books 2012 Contest”.

My latest mystery series is also set in Florence. It starts with “Delayed Death”, where the heroine finds her grandfather dead half an hour before her cousin’s wedding. In order to save the wedding, she hides her grandfather. Unfortunately, she then finds out that her grandfather was killed, and now she’s the attractive Inspector’s main suspect . . .

For a quick read, try my popular short story “Chic in France”. You’ll get a whiff of the mediterranean coast with some chaos thrown in. And if you like a combination of baking and reading, the series “A Culinary Catastrophe” is right for you.
