I finished reading Irish Stewed on May 4th. I loved the title, and was thrilled to have picked up this book! I hated putting it down. Kylie Logan has written a very good first in series with Irish Stewed!
The national bestselling author of the League of Literary Ladies Mysteries introduces an all-new cozy culinary mystery series featuring ethnic eats. After flopping as a personal chef to a Hollywood movie star, jobless Laurel Inwood finds herself humbled in Hubbard, Ohio, helping her aunt Sophie run her restaurant. Much to Laurel s dismay, Sophie s Terminal at the Tracks is not the cozy bistro her aunt would have had her believe it s a run-down greasy spoon in an old railroad station. To save the dingy diner, Laurel cooks up a plan to feature alternating ethnic cuisine as specials. But first there s the problem of the body in the booth. Slumped over a table with a receipt spike in his back is Jack Lancer the Lance of Justice an investigative reporter for local TV news. Assisted by the drop-dead gorgeous owner of the neighboring Irish store who may or may not be a suspect Laurel sets out to track down a killer who had no reservations about impaling a newshound. But as she turns up the heat, will she end up in the soup herself?
The main character in Irish Stewed is Complex and Curious!
I have to say honestly from first hand experience Kylie Logan has captured the true spirit and edge of a woman who grew up in the foster care system. My own parents were foster parents and growing up we had several kids and teens that came through who were just like main character Laurel. With an LA Sized chip on her shoulder and a can do attitude it is hard not to get behind Laurel. Helping her cause even further is a mysterious Irish Man whom she reluctantly befriends and helps set the tone with this first in series that I can not wait to see what the two of them get up to next!
