I'm so excited to be a stop on the blog tour for author
Book 2 in the Kebob Kitchen Mysteries
by Tina Kashian

Lucy Berberian has taken over her family’s Mediterranean restaurant on the Jersey Shore after an unsatisfying stint at a Philadelphia law firm. It’s great to be back in her old beach town, even if she’s turning into a seasoned sleuth . . .
Catering a high-society wedding should bring in some big income for Kebab Kitchen—and raise its profile too. But it’s not exactly good publicity when the best man winds up skewered like a shish kebab. Worse yet, Lucy’s ex, Azad—who’s the restaurant’s new head chef—is the prime suspect. But she doesn’t give a fig what the cops think. He may have killer looks, but he’s no murderer. She just needs to prove his innocence, before he has to go on the lamb . . .
Recipes included!

When I read the first book in this series, HUMMUS AND HOMICIDE, I was instantly taken with author Tina Kashian’s style of writing, the wonderful characters and setting she introduced me to, and the food. STABBED IN THE BAKLAVA served to reminded me about all the reasons I loved that book, and more!
It was wonderful to be back with this cast of characters that feel more like friends and family. I’ve enjoyed getting to know them all so much and can’t wait to learn even more about them in future installments.
With a cleverness worthy of the mystery world’s greatest authors, Tina Kashian filled STABBED IN THE BAKLAVA with suspects, clues, twist and turns, and red herrings enough to keep me guessing until the end!
Truly a fabulous second installment in the Kebob Kitchen Mysteries, STABBED IN THE BAKLAVA with have you begging for more of this delicious series!
