Feta Attraction by Susannah Hardy is the first book in the new “Greek to Me” mystery series. Publisher: Berkley Prime Crime, January 2015
Georgie Nikolopatos manages the Bonaparte House, a Greek restaurant and historic landmark in beautiful upstate New York rumored to possess ghosts and hidden treasure. But when her husband disappears and her main competitor is found dead, it’s up to Georgie to solve a big fat Greek murder.
With her husband, Spiro, inexplicably gone for days, Georgie has her hands full running the restaurant and dealing with the crew of the TV show Ghost Squad, called in by Spiro to inspect the house for haunting. So when she has a chance to take a boating excursion on the St. Lawrence River with her friend Keith Morgan, she jumps on it. But their idyll is quickly ruined when they discover the body of rival restaurant owner Domenic “Big Dom” DiTomasso floating in the water.
When the police start asking questions, it doesn’t help that Spiro can’t be found—and with Georgie on their suspect list, it’s up to her to find her missing husband and find out who killed Big Dom before someone else’s order is up.
I like it. Missing husband and lost treasure are the premise in this new cozy mystery featuring Georgie N. who leads a complicated life near the Canadian border. This was a good mystery that quickly became a page-turner as I was interested in what the treasure was and if she would find her husband. I enjoyed how well the chapters flow with the introduction of some of the cast that interacted with Georgie, especially Inky, who is a lovable soul. A well-planned mystery with suspects that kept me guessing and a few twisty turns, created a pleasantly appealing whodunit that I look forward to more exciting adventures in Bonaparte Bay.
