Olive and Let Die (A Greek to Me Mystery) - Susannah Hardy

I've been looking forward to reading book 2 of the Greek To Me series and it didn't disappoint.   Olive or Let Die picks up where the first book left off, with Georgie's  soon-to-be-ex-husband Spiro working on opening a diner with his new boyfriend, Inky and Georgie's romance with Coast Guard captain Jack blossoming nicely.  To add a wrinkle, Georgie's estranged mother, Shirley,  now known as soap opera star Melanie Ashley, shows up in town.  When Georgie and Melanie sit down for a talk, they discover the dead body of Melanie's cousin, Doreen. 

 

I really enjoyed this one.  A bit slow to start but as the story picked up, the suspense started to build into a very complex plot. Georgie's mother coming back to town added depth to the main character that was lacking in the first book.  The only issue I had is that there's a potential love triangle on the horizon and I'm desperately hoping it doesn't come to that.  This is shaping up to be a solid series, I'm hoping it doesn't get sidetracked with contrived romances.
