Book Summary

Hot pasta and a cold corpse make for quite a combination in the latest book in the Ethnic Eats mystery series.

When Laurel Inwood features Italian cuisine on the Terminal at the Tracks menu, she knows she’ll need to stock the shelves, the fridge, and the freezer with plenty of wonderful delicacies. She just never expected one of them to be her former employer, Hollywood superstar Meghan Cohan.

And one day, when Laurel is at the restaurant early to get ready for the regular rush of customers, that’s exactly what she finds–Meghan dead in the Terminal freezer.

What’s a Hollywood A-lister doing in Hubbard, Ohio?

For Laurel, that’s the real question, because the first question she’d ask in any other murder investigation–who would want the victim dead?–seems pretty much a no-brainer in this case.

Who would want Meghan dead?

Just about anybody who had ever met her.

Book Review by Bree Herron

A flash from the past leads to murder in the latest Laurel and crew adventure! I really loved that it was easy to understand why the victim was who they were. It lead the reader to want to just solve the mystery and questions that would pop to mind.


Got to love a victim that you just will love to hate, along with all the other characters who disliked her. It was the perfect victim and I really enjoyed the questions that came along with the victim. It was a nice and pleasant twist that the author used to keep this reader engaged.


Overall, I felt like this was a quick read! I finished it super fast and found myself re-reading the series. I do wonder if this is the end of the series and hold hope that it isn’t. Cozy fans that love good food and fun times will certainly enjoy reading this mystery!

  1. Jerrie M Adkins

    Heather Brittanye. A lifetime of names so cliched (and yet having to be spelled out over and over) would be bound to give anyone a bad attitude.

  2. Cheryl Arcemont

    Vickie Hudson sounds like a mean girl’s name.

  3. Pam Flynn

    Sharon Coniving sounds mean girl to me!

  4. Dianne Casey

    I think Shelia Canning is a good name for a mean girl.

  5. Dianne Bahn

    Kathy Leyden, after a mean coworker

  6. Paula Adams

    I personally know a mean girl who has made my life a living hell for the last 4 years. Her name is Ashley. I don’t wish to use her last name as she is starting to come around.

  7. Robin L. Coxon

    Delilah Williams is a name for someone who is an evil person and a temptress. Thanks for the chance to enter my selection. Would love to get my hands on Kylie Logan’s latest book.
