To save her cozy Florida diner, Gia Morelli must choke down a heaping helping of murder . . .
New York native Gia Morelli is just getting used to life in Florida when she gets word that the town government wants to shut down her pride and joy: the charming little diner known as the All-Day Breakfast Café. A forgotten zoning regulation means that the café was opened illegally, and hardboiled council president Marcia Steers refuses to budge. Gia is considering hanging up her apron and going back to New York, but before she gives up on her dream, she discovers something shocking in the local swamp: Marcia Steers, dead in the water. There’s a secret buried in the books at town hall, and someone killed to keep it hidden. To save her café and bring a killer to justice, Gia and her friends will have to figure out a killer’s recipe for murder . . .
Lena lives in a small town on the south shore of eastern Long Island with her husband and three children.
When she was growing up, she spent many lazy afternoons on the beach, in the yard, anywhere she could find to curl up with a good book. She loves reading as much now as she did then, but she now enjoys the added pleasure of creating her own stories.
Book Review by Bree Herron
We are back! And murder is on deck. I love the little place that Gia has started. I always can feel the warm breeze and see the charming little town in my mind.
So Gia seemed a bit unsure about her future at the end of the first book, I know she stayed but I didn’t know if she would continue to. She showed such passion for her place that I know now she won’t leave. I think that made this story for me, seeing Gia willing to fight for her cafe.
This is one of those mysteries that is so cozy it’s cute. I just love Gia and the gang plus I love her cafe. I think we will see more from Gia in the future and I would love to see her do some holiday fun! After solving this mystery I think she can handle anything!
Would you have a small diner or cafe?

Thank you so much for sharing the release of Murder Made to Order! And thank you for such a lovely review. I’m so happy you enjoyed the story. 🙂
This sounds fun. I think I would like a small café. Something simple with a limited choice of comfort foods and sweets.
