The Kielbasa Killer
by Geri Krotow

Lydia Wienewski discovers that her family’s ever-popular kielbasa isn’t the only thing that’s been pricked in the night when she finds a body in this entertaining and smartly written cozy.

Lydia Wienewski can’t wait to open her dream Polish-American café and bakery in Cheektowaga. But while her father recovers from a stroke, Lydia helps manage the family business, Wienewski’s Weiners & Meats, over the busy Easter holiday. She’s soon preparing a huge amount of their famous kielbasa – and dealing with her father’s rogue meat supplier, Louie McDaniel.

When Lydia finds Louie dead next to the kielbasa in the family’s private smoker, her great-great-grandpa’s antique sausage pricker sticking out of his neck, her problems are about to get much worse – especially as she seems to be the police’s prime suspect! Who would commit such a terrible act? Lydia quickly enlists the help of her irrepressible grandma Mary to find out. Can the sleuthing duo catch the killer and prove Lydia’s innocence before more grisly deaths occur?
