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 …

Recipes included!

Review 1

I may have started in at book 3 but I enjoyed every minute of this story and I pretty much want to go back now and read the first two!  This definitely works as a stand-alone, if you don’t mind jumping into the fray a little after the start.  Any necessary background info was provided in a clever way that flowed with the current action.

The mystery: Who killed Archie Kincaid? The list of suspects is quite long as no one seems to have had much pleasant interaction with this Ocean Crest Merchant. There’s a rival businessman, a girlfriend, a nephew and several more who all seem to have just cause for committing the crime. Even with the act happening in broad daylight, there are several opportunities for these suspects to have carried out the deed. Lucy certainly has her work cut out for her. The pacing of the clues, the red herrings, the revelation of the secrets are all well-placed and make for entertaining reading.

I love fun, likeable characters and this one has them too. Lucy is determined, smart and caring; always a good mix in a lead character. She can be a bit nosy at times when she pushes the boundaries of what is acceptable, as she searches to find the true culprit.

The rest of the cast are just as enjoyable including her best friend and sometimes reluctant partner in crime, Katie.

The romance with Chef Azad is sweetly written and a fun inclusion, which does not take away from the meat of the mystery. Besides, there’s always the sexy Michael to keep Azad on his toes!

Lucy’s family and their restaurant provide delicious and entertaining trips into Armenian culture and is a wonderful backdrop to this story and series. And as for the actual setting, what could be more fun than a summer festival in a small town on the Jersey shore.

Overall, I fully enjoyed One Feta in the Grave and look forward to continuing with the series.

I give One Feta in the Grave 4.5/5 delicious shots.

    1. Well although it’s part of a series it’s not a sequel in that sense. They are stand alone stories (usually in a cozy mystery series). The same main characters and there is usually some character development arc to work through across books but the mystery is fresh and doesn’t rely on the previous ones… usually. 🙂
