This week's teaser comes from Irish Stewed by Kylie Logan. I read this a few weeks back, and it was a pretty good start to a new culinary/restaurant series.
I fumbled for the phone in my pocket and dialed 911, hoping that when the dispatcher answered, I could make the words form in a mouth that felt suddenly as if it had been packed with sand.
And all I could think was the one thing I knew I wouldn't dare say to Sophie or to the cops—this gave a whole new meaning to the word terminal.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Series: Ethnic Eats #1
After flopping as a personal chef to a Hollywood movie star, jobless Laurel Inwood finds herself humbled in Hubbard, Ohio, helping her aunt, Sophie, run her restaurant. Much to Laurel’s dismay, Sophie’s Terminal at the Tracks is not the cozy bistro her aunt would have had her believe—it's a run-down greasy spoon in an old railroad station. To save the dingy diner, Laurel cooks up a plan to feature alternating ethnic cuisine as specials.
But first there’s the problem of the body in the dining room. Slumped over a table with a receipt spike in the back of his neck is Jack Lancer, aka "the Lance of Justice," an investigative reported for local TV news. Assisted by the drop-dead gorgeous owner of the neighboring Irish Store—who may or may not be a suspect—laurel sets out to track down a killer who had no reservations about impaling a newshound. But as she turns up the heat, will she end up in the soup herself?
