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 du Maurier Award. The proud mama of three grown sons, Rosie still lives in her home state with her husband and a charming mutt named Lucy.
