Description:

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.

Includes delicious Greek recipes!

My Thoughts: 

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.  Even Georgie's family is very mild in this book.  We learned more about other characters.  Dolly,  Georgie's chef was in this book granted another person sick.  But we got to see Dolly at her own place.  Also Franco the pizzeria owner was in this book as well as Brenda a local to the area who spends lots of time collecting cans played a more pivotal role to Georgie.  Brenda has no qualms about getting dirty with Georgie after seeing what happened to Franco.

I love this Greek series it's incredible especially this one that dealt with the receipe Thousand Island Dressing and all the hoopla with it.  You never consider where you will be educated about a dressing!  Can't wait to see what Ms. Hardy comes up with next!
