When Gilda Greco invites her closest friends to a VIP dinner, she plans to share David Korba’s signature dishes and launch their joint venture—Xenia, an innovative Greek restaurant near Sudbury, Ontario.

Unknown to Gilda, David has also invited Michael Taylor, a lecherous photographer who has throughout the past three decades managed to annoy all the women in the room. One woman follows Michael to a deserted field for his midnight run and stabs him in the jugular.

Gilda’s life is awash with complications as she wrestles with a certain detective’s commitment issues and growing doubts about her risky investment in Xenia. Frustrated, Gilda launches her own investigation and uncovers decades-old secrets and resentments that have festered until they explode into untimely death. Can Gilda outwit a killer bent on killing again?

My Review

This story is a decadent delight!

Filled with delicious cuisine, complex characters, and a murder mystery, this story will leave you guessing until the very end!

Lottery winner, Gilda Greco, secretly invests in a Greek restaurant owned by friends David and Susan Korba. A pre-opening celebration where she plans to announce the big news turns sour when womanizing Michael Taylor shows up to dinner. Anger and resentment stew, ruining Gilda’s big night.

The next morning Michael turns up dead, but who did it? Everyone is a suspect. Gilda’s worry for her friends and her investment in Xenia drive her to launch her own investigation with the help of her sometimes love interest, Detective Carlo Fantin.

Will they solve the crime before someone else dies?

Because I am a traveller I can look down on the birds and up at the fishes. I collect moments and can venture back in time to lost worlds. I seize life and simultaneously escape it at will. Because I am a traveller I envy no man at home.
