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 . . .
Lucy Berberian is taking over her family restaurant, even though she herself is no cook. Her ex boyfriend is the head chef and they are still finding their way to work together and remain friends, as they were long ago. Lucy's mother is anxious for grandchildren and is hoping to get her daughter settled. Lucy is still trying to figure out her future.
It was not long ago that someone died in the restaurant That is never good for business.
Even though her parents want to retire, they are fighting every change Lucy wants to make.
The opportunity for some great publicity comes along when Lucy is hired to cater a high society wedding. This is larger than anything they have ever done before. All goes well until the end of the event, when the best man is discovered dead in the restaurant van.
Lucy has vowed not to get involved in another investigation, but can't resist when the number one suspect is her head cook! Her best friend, who happens to be married to a cop, likes to encourage Lucy in the risky endeavor of "asking some simple questions." We all know this won't end well.
Tense yet fun, this second book in the series was entertaining to read. The motives and suspects are varied, secrets are revealed and Lucy has to escape personal endangerment once again.
