As manager of the Bonaparte House, a historic landmark and Greek restaurant in upstate New York, Georgie Nikolopatos knows her local legends—and her traditional Greek recipes are to die for.
Between her soon-to-be ex-husband Spiro coming out of the closet and her budding romance with Captain Jack Conway, Georgie’s life is beginning to feel like a soap opera. And that’s before a surprise visit from her estranged mother Shirley, better known as soap star Melanie Ashley. But the dramatic family reunion takes a chilling turn when another long-lost relative turns up dead.
Just outside Spiro’s new restaurant, Georgie and Melanie find the body of Doreen Webber—a cousin Georgie never knew she had. With Spiro’s partner Inky on the list of suspects, Georgie begins to wonder what else her mother may be hiding. Is the dead-broke diva capable of murder? She’d better find out before someone adds a new twist to the family plot.

Review of Olive and Let Die
Review (4 Stars): I loved all the twists and turns in Olive and Let Die. This mystery was fast-paced, well-written and kept me guessing, which is always a treat. Georgie has a surprise guest at the restaurant, who turns out to be her long lost mother that she hasn’t seen for several years. While dealing with that bombshell, Georgie finds the body of another relative behind the restaurant and finds herself involved in another murder mystery. Now she must find the killer before it is too late and this family reunion is cancelled permanently.
Georgie is such a fun character and I enjoyed every minute in Olive and Let Die. These characters are charming and very entertaining and loved all the secrets in this one. This is the second book in the Greek To Me mystery series and this series keeps getting better and better. Can’t wait for book number three.
