As summer comes to an end in her Jersey Shore town, Lucy Berberian continues to manage her family’s Mediterranean restaurant. The Kebab Kitchen also has a food tent at this year’s beach festival. But now a local businessman is under the boardwalk—dead by the sea …
With a sand castle contest and live music, Ocean Crest bids a bittersweet farewell to tourist season. Summer will return next year … but Archie Kincaid won’t. The full-of-himself store owner has been fatally shot, soon after a screaming match with Lucy’s best friend. Katie’s far from the only suspect, though, since Archie had some bitter rivals—as well as some relationships no one knew about. It’s up to Lucy to look into some seedy characters and solve the case before the wrong person gets skewered …

What I Thought:

This is the third installment in the Kebab Kitchen Mystery series, and the second in the series that I have read.  I am glad that I read the first book in the series as I would have been a little lost reading this one, but it can be a stand alone if the reader wishes, the author gives enough background that you are not that lost and can keep everything straight.  It just made me feel a closer connection to the characters having read the first in the series.  In this one, Lucy's bestie Katie is the main suspect in the killing of local businessman Archie Kincaid.  But Archie was not a very likable fella, so there are many suspects in this one.  I enjoyed revisiting the Kebab Kitchen, Ocean Crest, and its inhabitants.  I liked this one and the descriptions of the beach festival, it seemed like a lot of fun.  I like the author's writing style, and how the book flowed.  It was an interesting read that kept my attention from the very beginning.  I look forward to more in this series.

I received a complimentary copy of this book.
