Lucy Berberian has taken over her family’s Mediterranean restaurant on the Jersey Shore after an unsatisfying stint at a Philadelphia law firm. It’s great to be back in her old beach town, even if she’s turning into a seasoned sleuth . . .
Catering a high-society wedding should bring in some big income for Kebab Kitchen—and raise its profile too. But it’s not exactly good publicity when the best man winds up skewered like a shish kebab. Worse yet, Lucy’s ex, Azad—who’s the restaurant’s new head chef—is the prime suspect. But she doesn’t give a fig what the cops think. He may have killer looks, but he’s no murderer. She just needs to prove his innocence, before he has to go on the lamb . . .
Recipes included!

About the Author

Tina Kashian spent her childhood summers at the New Jersey shore, building sand castles, boogie boarding, and riding the boardwalk Ferris wheel. She also grew up in the restaurant business where her Armenian parents owned a restaurant for thirty years. She worked almost every job—rolling silverware and wiping down tables as a tween, to hosting and waitressing as a teenager. After college, Tina worked as a NJ Deputy Attorney General, a patent attorney, and a mechanical engineer. Her law cases inspired an inquiring mind of crime, and since then, Tina has been hooked on mysteries. The Kebab Kitchen Cozy Mystery series launches with Hummus and Homicide, followed by Stabbed in the Baklava and One Feta in the Grave by Kensington Books. Tina still lives in New Jersey with her supportive husband and two young daughters.

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

Lucy does it again! She is starting to get more comfortable running the family restaurant when they are asked to cater a celebrity secret wedding. Just before celebrating their success a dead body in the catering van spoils the party mood. When Azid becomes the main suspect she finds herself.boxing around asking questions until she ultimately finds herself in trouble again. The culture in this book is fascinating as we keep up with the characters. The food sounds great providing the perfect compliment to the clues sprinkled throughout. If you like culinary cozy mysteries or just ones with characters outside the norm then you should really try  this book/series. I really liked it so I give it 4/5 stars.
