My Nails and My Book Review - Hummus and Homicide by Tina Kashian


Title: Hummus and Homicide
Series: Kebob Kitchen Mystery #1
Author: Tina Kashian

Goodreads Summary: 
When Lucy Berberian quits her Philadelphia law firm and heads home to Ocean Crest, she knows what she's getting--the scent of funnel cake, the sight of the wooden roller coaster, and the tastes of her family's Mediterranean restaurant. But murder wasn't on the menu . . .
Things are slow in the off-season in this Jersey Shore town, but Lucy doesn't mind. She doesn't even mind waitressing at the Kebab Kitchen. Her parents have put in a new hummus bar, with every flavor from lemon to roasted red pepper. It's fun to see their calico cat again, and to catch up with her old BFF, who's married to a cop now.

She could do without Heather Banks, though. The Gucci-toting ex-cheerleader is still as nasty as she was back in high school . . . and unfortunately, she's just taken over as the local health inspector. Just minutes after eating at the Kebab Kitchen--where she's tallied up a whole list of bogus violations--she falls down dead in the street. Word on the grapevine is it's homicide, and Lucy's the number one suspect . . .

Recipes included!

My Review: **I voluntarily read this ARC**
This was a fun start to a new series. I loved how there was a strong focus on family. The setting was a little "standard cozy setting," but it felt like a nice place (minus the murder of course). The mystery was well written and kept me guessing until the end.

My Manicure: My inspiration is a bit screwy on this one. I wanted a Mediterranean feel, and my first thought (baklava) wasn't going to work. So I ended up going with a leafy theme since grape leaves are big in Mediterranean cuisine. I started with Sinful Colors Pistache, which I then topped with Green Ocean. The leaves were done with Pueen 55 and Bundle Monster Bam! White.
