Allison Campbell accepted a dream assignment: a visit to the Italian Dolomites to help Hollywood socialite Elle Rose reinvent herself. A guest cottage on the grounds of Elle’s historic castle promises to be a much-needed respite from Allison’s harried life on the Philadelphia Main Line, and the picturesque region, with its sharp peaks, rolling pastures, and medieval churches, is the perfect spot from which to plan her upcoming wedding.
Only this idyllic retreat is anything but peaceful. There are the other visitors—an entourage of back-biting expats and Hollywood VIPs. There’s Elle’s famous rock star father, now a shadowy recluse hovering behind the castle’s closed doors. And then there’s Elle’s erratic behavior. Nothing is as it seems. After a guest plummets to her death from a cliff on the castle grounds, Allison’s trip of a lifetime turns nightmarish—but before she can journey home, Allison must catch a killer.
Books in the Allison Campbell Mystery Series:  

Wendy Tyson is definitely a talented author. She can make you feel you are right in the scene even if you have never experienced anything similar . This castle and mountainous area are both luxurious and dark and foreboding. 
Protagonist Allison Campbell is going through major changes in her life. Planning to remarry her ex-husband in only a few weeks, and caring for her sister's child, while wishing for one of her own, would be enough stress for anyone. When her fiance must leave the country for a new job and Allison is offered an intriguing assignment herself, allowing her to spend time with him, she nervously accepts. The new assignment turns out to be far from what she expects.

Overall the tone is dark and dangerous. The upper class entourage of her client all have their quirks and are less than likable. The client herself, the daughter of an aging rock star, is far less than ideal. Often Allison finds herself wondering why she decides to stay. At least soon she will have support in the form of people she loves and trusts from back home.
People start to disappear or turn up dead. Will Allison survive until her wedding?
At least her niece provides a bright spot on occasion.

Not a light or breezy cozy but dark and deeply creative.
