Mistletoe, Moussaka, and Murder (A Kebab Kitchen Mystery) by Tina Kashian – Blog Tour & Giveaway

Synopsis:

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 love Christmas and winter themed cozy mysteries no matter what time of year. I haven’t read one in a while so this was a treat! Christmas is coming and it’s time for the annual Polar Bear Plunge.  Lucy finds more than ice in the water though; a local caterer has been murdered. There are so many people in town who may have had a good enough reason to kill him that Lucy hardly knows where to start.

I love Lucy and her friend Katie and the way they work together to solve the mystery. The supporting characters are all life-like and add flavor to the story (as do the recipes and the descriptions of food). This was a fun, fast read.

This is the fifth book in the Kebab Kitchen Mysteries series, but you can definitely read it as a standalone if you haven’t read the others in the series yet. (though I think you will want to read them all! 🙂 )

  1. What a delightful cover. While I could not handle the Polar Bear plunge, I have always thought it interesting. Will have to read this one. Thank you for the review.
