Slayed by Souvlaki (A Callie’s Kitchen Cozy Mystery)
by Jenny Kales

I have to thank the author for transporting me to an idyllic place with such genuine characters . . . Slayed by Souvlaki was a Perfect Escape!
~Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book

Greek vacations can be murder! Recipes are included in this cozy mystery set in the Greek Islands.

Callie Costas can’t believe she is finally traveling to Greece with her significant other, Detective Ian Sands. However, this isn’t your average voyage: Callie’s father has invited a slew of colorful family members to his beautiful childhood village to celebrate his recent marriage. Callie is especially delighted to be reunited with her Greek “Aunt Sweetie” aka Glykeria.

The Costas family’s Greek getaway turns to Greek tragedy when murder turns up on the menu at the seaside restaurant of her father’s friend, Dimitrios. A restaurant employee has been killed and Dimitrios is a prime suspect.

With a hodge-podge group of tourists and villagers to round out the suspect list, can Callie help her father clear his friend’s name, before the killer skewers her?

The characters are well rounded and well developed.  I always enjoy getting to spend time with Callie and her family, and this was no exception.  Callie and her family go to Greece to celebrate her father’s marriage.  But as luck would have it, there is a murder and her father’s friend is charged with the deed.  Callie cannot get the murder out of her mind and decides to look into it.  Her family will help her anyway they can.

The writing flows smoothly and the book is an easy read.  The author is very talented in her descriptive writing and these descriptions pulled me into the story from the very beginning.  The descriptions of Greece and the sights and foods had me feeling like I was there on vacation.  The mystery was well plotted and not easily solved.  There were enough clues to sift through and suspects to consider and I did not know who it was until the reveal.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well crafted cozy mystery.  If you want to take a quick trip to Greece, grab this book and let yourself go.

Jenny Kales is the author of The Callie’s Kitchen Mystery Series, featuring Greek-American Calliope Costas, feisty food business owner and amateur sleuth, who lives in a scenic Wisconsin town with colorful characters — and a high murder rate! Each book contains several delicious recipes, both Greek and American. Callie’s latest adventure, SLAYED BY SOUVLAKI is the 5th Callie’s Kitchen Mystery series and was released in October 2021.

Jenny is an avid reader, cook and baker and she’s addicted to reading and British TV mysteries. She lives just outside of Chicago with her husband and is the mom of two daughters and one cute but demanding Yorkshire terrier. She’s hard at work on additional writing projects including more Callie’s Kitchen Mysteries and a new series releasing in 2022.
