    A wonderful series!

    It's been almost a year now since Lucy Berberian quit her Philadelphia law firm and moved back to the Jersey Shore to work in her family's Mediterranean restaurant, Kebab Kitchen. In this 4th installment of the Kebab Kitchen Mysteries, Lucy is still adjusting to her new role as manager of Kebab Kitchen. She attends a beach bonfire with some of her closest friends. Everyone is having a good time until her friend, Melanie's landlord shows up, and they get into a heated argument about her unpaid rent. When Melanie finds his body later that night, she immediately becomes the police's main suspect. With the help of her best friend and sleuth partner, Katie, Lucy is determined to help Melanie prove her innocence and catch the murderer. On the Lamb by Tina Kashian is a delightful cozy mystery, with a wonderful cast of characters and mouthwatering descriptions of food. Tina Kashian's engaging writing style and detailed descriptions of the charming town of Ocean Crest quickly drew me into the story and kept me turning the pages. I loved Lucy's family and the restaurant atmosphere. Lucy is the type of character that anyone can relate to. She's a hard worker and very devoted to her friends, family, and career. I thought she was a very good sleuth. She wasn't too nosey and I like that she always took Katie along to help her investigate instead of wandering off on her own, potentially putting herself in danger. Katie and Lucy make a great team and I look forward to solving more mysteries with them. The murder mystery kept me guessing until the reveal. The author provides plenty of suspects and red herrings in a bid to throw readers off the scent. And it completely worked because the culprit wasn't even on my radar. Overall, I enjoyed my time with this book and look forward to the next one. As an added treat, delicious recipes are included. I received an ARC from Kensington Books through NetGalley. The opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.

    A Marvellous Instalment!

    This is my second book from what is proving to be a wonderfully entertaining series. Although I hadn't read books #1 and #2, Hummus and Homicide, and Stabbed in the Baklava, I jumped in at book#3, One Feta in the Grave. This one, On the Lamb, is book #4 in the 'A Kebab Kitchen Mystery' series. Though I am, in part, familiar with the characters' histories, I think anyone who hasn't read any of the books in this series should have no trouble reading this as a standalone. On the Lamb started great and just kept getting better and better! Lucy Berberian is slowly adjusting to her new role as manager of Kebab Kitchen, her family's Mediterranean restaurant on the Jersey Shore. The mystery was really intriguing and it kept me guessing. I enjoyed meeting up with the recurrent characters again and I liked their interaction. Tina Kashian's engaging writing style and detailed descriptions of the charming seaside town of Ocean Crest quickly drew me into the story and kept me turning the pages, as did the author's mouthwatering descriptions of food. Lucy's family dynamic and the restaurant atmosphere were wonderfully articulated and the locale was fun. This was a quick, light and joyous read, with plenty of action, worthy suspects and red herrings that ticked all the boxes for me as far as cozies are concerned. Definitely an all-round winner, I would recommend On the Lamb, and I hope this series continues so I can continue to follow Lucy's exploits! I received a complimentary digital copy of this novel, at my request, from Kensington Books via NetGalley and this review is my own unbiased opinion.

    Great sleuth!

    cozy-mystery, family-dynamics, friendship, amateur-sleuth, small-business, small-town Interesting sleuth! Discouraged with her career as a big city attorney, Lucy came home to the Jersey Shore to manage her parents' restaurant and has somewhat rekindled an old romance. A friend helps her to find an affordable apartment with a fascinating octogenarian landlady and she meets her slimy nephew. Who is the victim of murder is no surprise, and while the list of suspects is long, topping the list is a good friend. Let the sleuthing begin! Loved it! I requested and received a free ebook copy from Kensington Books via NetGalley. Thank you!

    Jersey girls are the best!

    Spring has sprung and Summer at the Jersey shore is looming. Lucy Berberian and her friends are attending a beach bonfire as part of the annual biker’s weekend before the season kicks off. When a local landlord, and the nephew of her own landlord, is found murdered on the beach, it looks like Lucy’s high school friend Melanie is the most likely suspect. Even though the man was not well liked, both Melanie and Mrs Lubinski, who are both suspects, ask Lucy to help find the real murderer. With so many other viable suspect, Lucy and her BFF Katie have their hands full trying to find the evidence they need to uncover the murderer and clear their friends. Hopefully before one of them becomes the next target. Having grown up in New Jersey and spent much time at the shore, this series brings back the scents, sounds and memories of my own time spent at the shore. (Luckily none of my memories involved murder.) Order some kebabs and hummus, open a bottle of wine, bring out the fudge and salt water taffy and settle in for an enjoyable afternoon!

    Entertaining cozy mystery!

    On the Lamb by Tina Kashian has Lucy Berberian enjoying a bonfire with her friends until a scream rings out. They find Melanie Haven, the local candy maker, standing by the prone body of Gilbert Lubinski. Melanie and Gilbert had a small altercation earlier in the evening which puts Melanie at the top of the detective’s suspect list. Melanie asks that Lucy use her sleuthing prowess to find the guilty party. Gilbert was not liked in the community, not even by his aunt who he was trying to oust from her home. Lucy has her work cut out for her if she is to prove Melanie’s innocence. On the Lamb can be read as a standalone for those new to A Kitchen Kebab Mystery series. Everything a new reader needs to know is included in On the Lamb. Lucy has been working hard at the family’s Mediterranean restaurant which she manages and is looking forward to evening with her friends enjoying the first bonfire of the season. I like the descriptions of Ocean City, New Jersey. I especially enjoy hearing about the boardwalk, the tram and the various shops. The word imagery brings the scenes alive in my mind. There is a nice balance between mystery and time spent with Lucy, her friends, family and boyfriend. The main characters are established, and a unique new character is introduced. Lucy finally moves into her own apartment. It is right on the beach much to her delight. Her new landlord, Eloisa Lubinski is delightful with her eccentric clothing and zest for life. Eloisa is hoping having Lucy live there will keep her nephew, Gilbert from pestering her about moving into an assisted living facility. Of course, Gilbert ends up dead. Lucy, with assistance from her best friend, Katie Watson, sets out to find the real culprit. They talk to numerous suspects, verify alibis, and do a little illegal searching (when the opportunity strikes, you cannot pass it up). It will depend upon your sleuthing level on whether you solve this whodunit. The clues are there for you to find. Lucy is trying to bring the family restaurant into the twenty-first century, but her father is stubborn (if it has worked for thirty years, why change it now is his philosophy). It is a good thing that Lucy is equally tenacious. Her romance with Azad is moving forward (personally, I prefer Michael). I enjoyed the mouthwatering descriptions of the food and there are recipes included at the end of the book. On the Lamb is a charming cozy mystery that will have you wanting to visit the Jersey shore. On the Lamb has terrific taffy, a blazing bonfire, a snappy shih tzu, mouthwatering meals, a ghastly landlord, surfeit of suspects, and a conniving killer.
