LET'S GET COZY! FETA ATTRACTION: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED
FETA ATTRACTION
A Greek to Me Mystery
BY SUSANNAH HARDY

ABOUT THE BOOK:
The first mystery in a new series overflowing with Greek flavor…

Georgie Nikolopatos manages the Bonaparte House, a Greek restaurant and historic landmark in beautiful upstate New York rumored to possess ghosts and hidden treasure. But when her husband disappears and her main competitor is found dead, it’s up to Georgie to solve a big fat Greek murder.

With her husband, Spiro, inexplicably gone for days, Georgie has her hands full running the restaurant and dealing with the crew of the TV show Ghost Squad, called in by Spiro to inspect the house for haunting. So when she has a chance to take a boating excursion on the St. Lawrence River with her friend Keith Morgan, she jumps on it. But their idyll is quickly ruined when they discover the body of rival restaurant owner Domenic “Big Dom” DiTomasso floating in the water.

When the police start asking questions, it doesn’t help that Spiro can’t be found—and with Georgie on their suspect list, it’s up to her to find her missing husband and find out who killed Big Dom before someone else’s order is up.

Includes delicious Greek recipes!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Susannah Hardy is the author of the Greek to Me Mysteries, just coming out this past January 6, 2015 from Berkley Prime Crime. If you like your mysteries cozy, culinary, and a little bit crazy, you’re going to love Georgie and the gang at Bonaparte Bay.

Suze is a member of the New England Chapter of Sisters in Crime, the Romance Writers of America and the Connecticut Chapter of RWA. Susannah is originally from Northern New York State (Way north! Only a few miles from the Canadian border), graduated from St. Lawrence University, and now lives in Connecticut with her husband, teenaged son, and Elvira the Wonder Cat.

ONE OF SUSANNAH HARDY'S YUMMY RECIPES (CHECK HER WEBSITE HERE FOR THIS ONE AND MORE:

Watermelon, Mint & Feta Salad

INGREDIENTS:
*4 cups of refrigerated, ripe seedless watermelon, rind removed and discarded, flesh cut into bite-size pieces

*2 T. fresh squeezed lemon juice (about half a lemon)

*3 T. good olive oil

*3 T. fresh mint leaves (or a small handful)

1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese

DIRECTIONS:
--Prepare watermelon. If not assembling salad immediately, place melon in refrigerator until just before serving time. 
--When you’re ready to serve, place lemon juice into a cup or small bowl and drizzle in the olive oil, whisking constantly. 
--Pour dressing over the melon. 
--Tear the mint leaves into pieces and add to melon. 
--Toss gently to coat mixture with dressing. 
--Add a bit of fresh cracked black pepper if you like a little punch. (Salt is not needed–the feta is plenty salty)
--Sprinkle on feta and garnish with a sprig of mint.

This salad is delicious on its own or as a topping for some crisp romaine lettuce.

Serves 4.

Sounds interesting...who killed Big Dom? What are ll of the ghosts doing at her restaurant/landmark? And what's this hidden treasure? And where's her husband, too?

If you omit the orange, the MARGARETTE’S CRANBERRY RELISH is the same as my mom's cranberry relish from my youth.
