Big Trouble In Little Greektown

A Goddess Of Greene St. Mystery, Book #3

Kate Collins

5 Stars

Synopsis:

In a tourist town on Lake Michigan, Athena Spencer keeps busy raising a son (and a pet raccoon named Oscar) while working at her family’s garden center. But sometimes, she also has to get the dirt on a murderer, in the new series by the New York Times bestselling author of the Flower Shop Mysteries . . .

Athena has invited Case Donnelly, recently relocated from Pittsburgh and awaiting his PI license, to accompany her to a Save Our Dunes fundraiser and art festival. And her date proves helpful when the body of a disgraced photographer turns up during a nature walk.

The crime—and the photos taken by the dead man—raise a lot of questions about local politics, environmental battles, and the victim’s womanizing ways. As Athena’s endearing Greek-American family strives to solve a mystery of their own (uncovering the identity of Athena’s anonymous blog), she and Case try to find the tangled roots of this murder and make sure there’s no sanctuary for a killer . . .

“Mean girls, stalkers, and a jealous brother are all fair game as suspects in this clever and amusing mystery.”

Kirkus on A Big Fat Greek Murder

“Kate Collins delivers an entertaining, amusing, and deliciously suspenseful mystery.”

—Cleo Coyle, New York Times bestselling author on Statue of Limitations

“A rewarding and satisfying delight.”

—Kings River Life Magazine on Statue of Limitations  (Amazon)

Review:

The characters are well rounded and well developed.  Althena  and her family make me happy, I just love reading about them.  And I love that no one knows that she is writing her blog and it makes for some fun reading.  

A photographer is murdered and Althena must try to find the culprit.  She will have to talk to people and figure out the clues to help solve the mystery.  The mystery was well plotted and was  not easily solved.

The author is very talented in her descriptive writing and these descriptions pulled me into the story and took me on a journey.  The writing style flows smoothly and the book is a quick, easy and enjoyable read.  

I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book provided by the publisher, Kensington Books, and NetGalley, which I greatly appreciate.
