The Kielbasa Killer

Book 1 in the Kielbasa Queen Mystery Series

Coming: Jul 4, 2023

An amusing mystery with a pronounced Buffalo vibe–Kirkus Reviews

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

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 must help 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 in the family’s private smoker next to the kielbasa, the family’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? Enlisting the help of her irrepressible grandma Mary, can the sleuthing duo catch the killer and prove the Wienewskis innocence before more grisly deaths occur?
