The second Greek to Me Mystery from the author of Feta Attraction…
As manager of the Bonaparte House, a historic landmark and Greek restaurant in upstate New York, Georgie Nikolopatos knows her local legends—and her traditional Greek recipes are to die for.
Between her soon-to-be ex-husband Spiro coming out of the closet and her budding romance with Captain Jack Conway, Georgie’s life is beginning to feel like a soap opera. And that’s before a surprise visit from her estranged mother Shirley, better known as soap star Melanie Ashley. But the dramatic family reunion takes a chilling turn when another long-lost relative turns up dead.
Just outside Spiro’s new restaurant, Georgie and Melanie find the body of Doreen Webber—a cousin Georgie never knew she had. With Spiro’s partner Inky on the list of suspects, Georgie begins to wonder what else her mother may be hiding. Is the dead-broke diva capable of murder? She’d better find out before someone adds a new twist to the family plot.
Includes delicious Greek recipes!
Review: First let me tell you that this is a series you shouldn't miss. This is the second book in a series and one that you can't help but love. Seriously go back and read Feta Attraction if you haven't, it is a great read.
And one day I'm going to make some of the recipes from this series too. I've never tried much Greek food before, with the exception of gyros, and I'm not sure that really counts.
In this one we get more info on Georgie's mom and her past and there are quiet a few family secrets to be learned here, which makes things a lot more exciting. Georgie and her mom haven't seen each other in over 18 years. Her mother is soap opera actress, which again makes things interesting, just as her husband Spiro who recently came out of the closet does too.
When a body is found near Spiro's new place it looks like his partner is a suspect and the victim another long lost relative.
Another totally great mystery.
