Publisher's Summary

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....

Really good

Good cozy mysteries are hit and miss. This one is a hit. The characters are engaging and realistic. The story is well developed and believable with twists and turns. The budding romantic triangle stays in the background of the story, which, is a good thing. Lucy and Katie are a great team and work well together. Rachel Dulude does a very good job giving the characters different voices and bringing the story to life. I look forward to seeing how the characters grow and develop in future books.

Pretty Good

This is a well plotted mystery with engaging characters and a believable storyline. The mystery isn't easily solved and I enjoyed the way Lucy interacted with Katie and everyone else in town. The story touches on a romance but that aspect of the story stayed in the background. The only thing I didn't like was the developing love triangle. I hope it's resolved quickly and stays in the background.
