Series: A Greek to Me Series
Synopsis (from bn.com): Georgie Nikolopatos manages the Bonaparte House, a Greek restaurant and historic landmark in beautiful upstate New York rumored to possess ghosts and hidden treasure. But when her husband disappears and her main competitor is found dead, it’s up to Georgie to solve a big fat Greek murder.
With her husband, Spiro, inexplicably gone for days, Georgie has her hands full running the restaurant and dealing with the crew of the TV show Ghost Squad, called in by Spiro to inspect the house for haunting. So when she has a chance to take a boating excursion on the St. Lawrence River with her friend Keith Morgan, she jumps on it. But their idyll is quickly ruined when they discover the body of rival restaurant owner Domenic “Big Dom” DiTomasso floating in the water.
My thoughts: I am so glad I had the opportunity to review this new cozy mystery. There is nothing that a cozy lover likes to see more than the words “first in a new series” on the front cover of a cozy!! I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed this new cozy mystery series. I loved the concept of a cozy surrounding a Greek restaurant, certainly something new.
The characters are fun, charming, and I no doubt look forward to reading the second in the series.
One thing that might sound odd but I would love if the author would include a little map of the area that the book is set in in the front of the book. I am unfamiliar with upstate New York and would love to get a visual perspective of all the locations they are talking about.
A perfect new cozy on the scene for all of us cozy lovers. Get out there and pick it up . . . you won’t be disappointed.
