Killer Kebabs at the Jersey Shore

It’s finally here!

The second book in my Kebab Kitchen mystery series, STABBED IN THE BAKLAVA is hot off the press. I’m excited and offering great prizes.

A delectable read! ” – Bestselling Author Shelley Freydont

4 Stars! “Clever and charming…A culinary delight that will have readers salivating over the food and hungry for literary answers.” – RT Book Reviews on Hummus and Homicide

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 . . .

“…its likeable characters and colorful kebab restaurant setting will whet the appetite of devotees of foodie mysteries.”
–Library Journal

Overall, this is not our typical culinary mystery. There is culture, divine setting, family ties and Lucy. No other book has a Lucy like this Lucy. I could keep coming back for more!
–Bibliophile Reviews

I absolutely loved “Hummus and Homicde!!” Very highly recommended. –Cozy Nook Books

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…
