With the restaurant closed for the season and most of her family out of town, Georgie figures now is the perfect time to do some much needed renovations on the restrooms. But Georgie comes back to find a dead body in the rubble of one of the bathrooms. The victim is her divorce lawyer, and the police are quick to arrest a former employee of the restaurant. While Russ is not a nice man, Georgie doesn’t think he’s a killer. But what happened to the victim?

Another mouth watering mystery from Susannah Hardy.

Even with the tourists gone and The Bonaparte House closed for the season Georgie Nikolopatos still finds herself with a mystery to solve. Georgie has contracted to have the bathrooms of the restaurant updated before Thanksgiving when she hopes to have a huge feast for friends and neighbors and local patrons. She can’t believe after just one day of demolition the remodeling comes to a screeching halt when she finds a dead body

This installment in the GREEK TO ME Mysteries is a perfect dish to this so far three course series.

I know next to nothing about Greek food other than what I have learned from this series. Well, I did know they serve lamb, but, well, no that you on that.

Author Susannah Hardy’s writing has really grown from her first two books in this series, making A KILLER KEBAB an even stronger, intense mystery. But I have to admit, it isn’t my favorite in the series. The writing is just as good, and the plot

I was organizing my book shelves and came across A Killer Kebab by Susannah Hardy and couldn't believe that I hadn't read it already. A Killer Kebab is the third book in her A Greek To Me Mystery series and I LOVED the first two. I was very upset that I missed this one and hadn't read it yet......until I realized that I HAVEN'T READ IT YET....... So I sat right down leaving the book shelves more unorganized that when I started and opened the book.....

I was instantly at home with Georgie in the
Hilary (A Wytch's Book Review)
Another excellent outing the with characters created by Susannah Hardy, I really like the fact that she has modern family ideas (soon to be ex husband who came out as gay, but both he and his new partner are still great friends with Georgie, oh and an estranged parent who Georgie is just getting to know again).

In this latest offering the restaurant is shut, and whilst normally this would be the cue for Georgie to hibernate with hot drinks, wine, chocolate and play catch up on her reading and DVD

I love the Greek to Me mystery series. The characters are fun and the story line is unpredictable. There's just one downside. When I sit down with a Susannah Hardy book, I don't want to stop reading until I get to the end. Love this series and highly recommend.

Although the restaurant is closed in this book, there are good recipes in the back.

Summer is over and the tourists have all flown south so Georgie Nikolopatos wants to renovate the restaurant's bathrooms. To finance this, she has conspired with a local contractor to lie to her mother-in-law, owner of the Bonaparte House, saying that the plumbing is over the hill and needs to be replaced.

But in the midst of demo for the renovation, Georgie finds her lawyer in the bathroom run through with a

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 ...more
Avid Series Reader
A Killer Kebab by Susannah Hardy is the third (and final?) book of the Greek to Me mystery series set in contemporary upstate New York. About to be divorced (amicably), Georgiana Nikolopatos ("Georgie") lives in a lakeside historic mansion owned by her Greek mother-in-law Sophie. Tourist season is over, the fall weather is cold and stormy, and Georgie's all alone in Bonaparte House. Sophie is traveling in Greece with Georgie's daughter Callista. An ideal time for restaurant renovation. Georgie ...more

This book follows Georgie Nikolopatos whose looking forward to fix somethings at the Bonaparte House while her mother-in-law Sophie is in Greece what Georgie didn't count on was her lawyer winding up skewered to death! Who killed Jim and why? Also Georgie is dealing with a sick mother and her mother's assistant Caitlyn is also ill.

This book was different as it didn't have some of the characters in it as much. No Sophie and running around mad at the restaurant. Georgie's ex was minimal at best.

A really good read, and I like the author's writing. Funny, yet mysterious and some great recipes! I have added Ms. Hardy to my list and I will definately read more of her books.

This was my least favorite of the series. Honestly, I think they got worse as it progressed. The mystery wasn't super interesting, and there wasn't a ton of interaction between Georgie and the other characters outside of the mysteries. In other words, not a lot of character development or bonding; they just talked about clues and murder like the other characters and their development was supposed to be interesting or important. It was just the Georgie show here. Also, I know Thousand Island ...more

Georgie is getting a divorce, her mother-in-law is leaving the country and the tourists are gone so she is getting some renovations to open in time for a Greek Thanksgiving. A former dishwasher shows up on the crew and she is worried that he will take his anger out on her place. Georgie then finds the body of her divorce lawyer and the former dishwasher is arrested. She doesn't think he did it and goes through a confusing list of people that could do it. Georgie does take some precautions when

This book is a bit better than the first two so, if the author decides to write more books in this series, I have hopes they will continue to improve.

The characters are more developed in this one.

The problem is that there were actually two mysteries that were loosely connected but this did make the story confusing at times.

Quirky story, but standard complaint with cooking based novels. Not all mayonnaise and ketchup are alike, particularly in 1907. So one cup of mayo and half of ketchup is not useful.

Being of Greek descent I always love a mystery with Greeks in it even if they always own a restaurant. (Lots of Greeks do, including my family.) Georgie finds herself in the middle of another murder that leads to a mishandled Trust and a Thousand Island dressing recipe.

Georgie is at Bonaparte House by herself as Thanksgiving approaches. She is having the bathrooms in the restaurant redone. The day the fixtures are torn out she comes home to find her lawyer dead on the floor of the bathroom. Franco at the Casa finds a recipe for Thousand Island dressing from 1907. Melanie and Caitlyn are sick. Liza gets sick too. Someone ransacks Georgie's car. The Bloodworth Trust seems to have decreased substantially in value.

I had to think twice the next time I ordered a gyro.
Once again, an interesting and intriguing mystery - with a surprise (to me) killer.
This book focused on the main character - with other family members playing more peripheral parts than in earlier books. Good depiction of what off-season is like in resort areas, but I look forward to her mother-in-law returning from Greece and who might show up (live or dead) when the tourists start returning.

I've not read the first two books in the series, but I did not think that this particularly hampered my enjoyment of the book. Overall, I did enjoy it, but at times it seemed to drag. I will say that I have never thought so much about Thousand Island dressing before.

I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book from the publisher.

In questo libro si intrecciano due misteri. Alla fin fine la soluzione è ovvia, ma l'autrice riesce a farti rimanere col dubbio fino alla fine o quasi.
