When Lucy Berberian quits her Philadelphia law firm and heads home to Ocean Crest, she knows what she’s getting—the scent of funnel cake, the sight of the wooden roller coaster, and the tastes of her family’s Mediterranean restaurant. But murder wasn’t on the menu . . .
Things are slow in the off-season in this Jersey Shore town, but Lucy doesn’t mind. She doesn’t even mind waitressing at the Kebab Kitchen. Her parents have put in a new hummus bar, with every flavor from lemon to roasted red pepper. It’s fun to see their calico cat again, and to catch up with her old BFF, who’s married to a cop now.
She could do without Heather Banks, though. The Gucci-toting ex-cheerleader is still as nasty as she was back in high school . . . and unfortunately, she’s just taken over as the local health inspector. Just minutes after eating at the Kebab Kitchen—where she’s tallied up a whole list of bogus violations—she falls down dead in the street. Word on the grapevine is it’s homicide, and Lucy’s the number one suspect . . .
Recipes included!

  •  REVIEW 
    *I received a free copy of this book from Netgalley which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.

    What a great start to a new series. We get some interesting characters that come with some back history that we get to learn throughout the book combined with a nice ethnic flair that I as really enjoying. The mystery was great moving at a nice pace keeping me guessing until the killer finally revealed himself. This is a must read for fans of cozy mysteries with a culinary flair to them. I really enjoyed it so I give it 4/5 stars and I can fully admit that I will be keeping an eye on the release of the next installment.
