Welcome! I’m excited to announce that I sold a three book mystery series to Kensington Publishing Corporation. The first book in my Mediterranean Mystery Series, Hummus and Homicide, will be released early next year. I just received the cover from my publisher and I love it. The detail is perfect, including the skull and crossbones on the check, the calico cat, and of course, the hummus on the table.
“A delectable read!” – Bestselling Author Shelley Freydont
A Kebab Kitchen Mystery
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.
As for me, I also write adventurous historical romances under the pen name Tina Gabrielle, and you can find all those books at tinagabrielle.com
