Book #Review ~ A Killer Kebab (Greek to Me Mystery, Book #3) by Susannah Hardy ~ #CozyMystery

A Killer Kebab (Greek to Me Mystery, #3)A Killer Kebab by Susannah Hardy
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

About the Book:

The Bonaparte House is closed for the season, and Georgie Nikolopatos looks forward to fixing up the Greek restaurant and historic landmark—until her renovation plans hit a fatal snag.

With her divorce underway, her mother-in-law returning to Greece, and the tourists gone, Georgie finally has life under control—and the Bonaparte House to herself. She quickly hires a contractor for some much-needed renovations to reopen in time for a special Greek-style Thanksgiving meal. Georgie is suspicious though when former dishwasher Russ Riley arrives with the construction crew. He still has an ax to grind with the Nikolopatos family—but is it sharp enough to kill?

When Georgie finds the body of her divorce lawyer amid the construction debris and Russ is quickly arrested for murder, something about the case doesn’t add up. While Georgie is no fan of Russ, even a bad egg deserves a crack at justice.

My Review:

Georgie has begun preparations for some much needed renovations in The Bonaparte House. The restaurant has closed for the season and is otherwise unoccupied so what better time! She wasn’t counting on Russ, a former foe, being on the construction crew. Nor was she counting on finding her divorce lawyer dead in the bathroom currently under construction. With the death and Russ being arrested, the work on the restaurant has all but stopped. Even though she’s not a fan of Russ, Georgie doesn’t at feel that Russ is really the one responsible. It’s up to Georgie and a cast of secondary characters to figure out who wanted the divorce lawyer dead and why they felt the need do in The Bonaparte House.

Georgie had really blossomed in the previous book and was written even stronger in book 3. She has a good heart and not nearly as wishy-washy as she was in book 1. She was also smarter when it came to the dos and don'ts of crime scene contamination and putting yourself in harm's way like an idiot. She's spunky, motivated, and mostly level-headed. I really enjoyed everything about her character in Book 3.

The entire story was fast-paced but not rushed. The development of the plot, characters, and mystery were well done. A Killer Kebob is a great cozy mystery that I enjoyed reading. It was almost impossible for me to put the book down at any point - I had to know what the heck was going on and why so many people and storylines were created. I highly recommend that Susannah Hardy’s Greek to Me Mystery series be read in order.
