Not even her impending nuptials can keep Lucy Berberian, manager of her family-owned Kebab Kitchen, from the Jersey Shore’s annual Polar Bear Plunge. But her dive into the icy ocean is especially chilling when she finds a fellow swimmer doing the dead man’s float—for real . . .

Who would kill a man in cold blood during Ocean Crest, New Jersey’s most popular winter event? When Lucy learns the victim is Deacon Spooner, the reception hall owner who turned up his nose—and his price—at her wedding plans, she can’t help wondering who wouldn’t kill the pompous caterer . . .

Perhaps the culprit is the wedding cake baker whose career Deacon nearly destroyed? Or the angry bride whose reception he ruined? With her maid of honor, Katie, busily planning Lucy’s wedding without her, Lucy will have to get to the bottom of this cold-hearted business in time for Kebab Kitchen’s mouthwatering Christmas celebration—and before her hometown’s holiday spirit washes out to sea . . .

Recipes included!

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

I really enjoy the different culture in this series. Lucy runs her family's Greek restaurant where they serve authentic food that sounds oh so yummy. The little tidbits really make the story. For this one we start with their annual polar plunge which I have to admit is way too cold for me. Since the fundraising for this is for a good cause Lucy and her BFF take part to represent their businesses. It starts fine but before it is over a man is found dead. The problem is that he was a less then pleasant man that many found hard to deal with. Lucy had no plans to loom into things but finds herself doing so anyways. Makes for a great mystery as the clues slowly start coming but not fast enough to keep her out of trouble. Add in the holidays and wedding planning to get a cozy you will highly enjoy. The mix of it alk just really pulls the reader into the story. An enjoyable read that I really liked so I give it 4/5 stars.
