About the Kielbasa Queen Mystery Series

1982 Buffalo, New York and its hopping suburb of Cheektowaga will never be the same since Lydia Wienewski and Grandma Mary take on killers, solving murders while juggling lovers, attending bingo games and always surviving the most recent Lake Effect blizzard.
Lydia returns home from a failed attempt at French pastry school in Ottawa, Canada with one goal: open her own Polish American cafe and bakery in her hometown of Cheektowaga, NY. When she can’t find the perfect property, Grandma helps out and Lydia has her dream location: a sprawling restaurant overlooking Lake Erie. But then Pop has a stroke and Lydia has to step in to run Wienewski’s Wieners & Meats. No problem for the woman who grew up in the family business. Until she finds her first murder victim.
