On the Lamb (A Kebab Kitchen Mystery)
by Tina Kashian
An intricate mystery, an abundance of motives, a large dollop of intriguing characters, and a pinch of romance blended with a hint of salt from the Jersey Shore blend together to make ON THE LAMB a fun heartwarming story.
~Cozy Up With Kathy
Ms. Kashin did a fantastic job of stumping me that I just had to give this book five stars. I loved every minute of reading this book.
~Baroness’ Book Trove
On the Lamb is a charming cozy mystery that will have you wanting to visit the Jersey shore.
~The Avid Reader
A family-centric crime series with lots of delicious food and plenty of twists, turns, and red herrings.
Another great cozy with likable relatable to me characters but what I enjoyed most was the closeness of family and also that the “who did it” wasn’t so easily recognized because almost everybody was a suspect!
~Gimme the Scoop Reviews
Well plotted with many twists and turns, this strong, superbly written mystery gave me the run around as I tried in vain to help protagonist, Lucy Berberian, solve the case and clear her friend.
~Lisa Ks Book Reviews
The author combined the perfect amount of mystery, humor, and romance to create a great addition to the series. As always, I love the author’s personal touches, such as her family recipes and the fact that she took some of her favorite memories and included them in the book.
~Devilishly Delicious Book Reviews
Engaging and vividly drawn characters (main and supporting), mouthwatering food from the Mediterranean restaurant to the boardwalk, heartwarming friendships, a dash of romance, well-timed humor, and a not-as-simple-as-it-first-appears mystery to solve make this a wonderfully diverse & entertaining read.
~Reading Is My SuperPower
On The Lamb has everything I look for in a cozy mystery, engaging and entertaining characters, a mystery I can sink my teeth into, and just a little romance and humor to balance everything out.
~Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book
Lucy Berberian is busy preparing her family’s Mediterranean restaurant for Easter on the Jersey Shore—but a batch of sweets is to die for . . .
Bikers are thundering into the seaside town of Ocean Crest for the annual Bikers on the Beach gathering that raises funds for injured veterans. It’s a big boost for the Kebab Kitchen, as well as for local businesses like Melanie Haven’s candy shop. But Melanie is about to find herself in a sticky situation.
When Melanie and Lucy attend a beach bonfire, a local landlord is found dead after apparently choking on a piece of salt water taffy. Melanie, who was known to have a contentious relationship with the victim, is quickly skewered as the prime suspect. But Lucy is determined to prove her friend’s innocence before the real killer coasts free . . .
The characters are well rounded and well developed. I so enjoy Lucy and Katie and their sleuthing adventures. It does not seem to bother Katie that her husband is a policeman, she will do anything when she and Lucy are looking for a killer. They seem to be fearless when they are on the case, and they are definitely on the case to prove their friends innocence. I also enjoy getting to spend time with Lucy’s family and friends, they add a lot to the story. I especially enjoyed getting to meet Lucy’s landlady, Eloisa Lubinski. She is quirky and slightly bizarre and I loved her.
The writing style flows smoothly and it defines the characters very clearly by their actions and words. The author is very talented in her descriptive writing and those descriptions pulled me into the story from the very beginning. The mystery was well plotted and moved along at a steady pace. There were enough suspects to consider and clues to sift through, and with some red herrings thrown in just for fun, it was not easily solved. And that is the way I like my mysteries.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well crafted cozy mystery. I think this series is wonderful, and all I can say to the author is “keep them coming”.
I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book provided by the publisher, Kensington Books, and NetGalley, which I greatly appreciate.
