~Reading Is My SuperPower
Mistletoe Moussaka and Murder, with its spot-on plotting and developed characters, is ideal for any cozy mystery book lover, especially for those who enjoy a bit of the foodie element!
~The Cozy Pages
Mistletoe, Moussaka, and Murder is a cheery cozy mystery with holiday house hop, matrimonial machinations, Christmas cheer, a polar plunge, seashells, seagulls, and snow.
~The Avid Reader
The pace is good, the characters are likable, and there are plenty of false leads, twists, and turns, and surprises.
~Christa Reads and Writes
I love Lucy and her friend Katie and the way they work together to solve the mystery. The supporting characters are all life-like and add flavor to the story (as do the recipes and the descriptions of food).
~The Book’s the Thing
The author is very talented in her descriptive writing, and through most of the book, I felt like I was right there, watching all the action taking place, whether it was plunging into the ocean or checking out wedding venues.
Mistletoe, Moussaka, and Murder by Tina Kashian is an excellent book. It seems as I can never figure out the motive for these books. I have to say that it is good for Ms. Kashian.
~Baroness’ Book Trove
A big BRAVA to Tina Kashian for another well plotted, believable mystery filled cover to cover with twists and turns, false leads, and an all-around entertaining storyline that got better with every turn of the page.
~Lisa Ks Book Reviews
Ms. Kashian has a great descriptive writing style. She takes us to the Jersey Shore with its snow-covered sand, the frigid temperatures of the ocean, the sound of a band playing under the boardwalk, the food at the Kabab Kitchen, a lovely Victorian B&B, and more.
~Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book
MISTLETOE, MOUSSAKA, & MURDER is a heartfelt family mystery that combines good food and the warmth of community against the backdrop of cold blooded murder.
~Cozy Up With Kathy
If you enjoy a good cozy with fun and likable characters you’ll enjoy the escapades of Lucy and Katie.
~My Reading Journeys
Tina Kashian’s engaging writing style and detailed descriptions of the charming seaside town of Ocean Crest continued to delight, drawing me into the story straight away so I didn’t want to stop turning the pages.
~Brianne’s Book Reviews
. . . a great mystery as the clues slowly start coming but not fast enough to keep her out of trouble. Add in the holidays and wedding planning to get a cozy you will highly enjoy. The mix of it alk just really pulls the reader into the story.
~Books a Plenty Book Reviews
I enjoy this series and recommend it to everyone looking for a cozy with some good greek food. I want that hummus bar here in my town! We give this book 5 paws up.

Not even her impending nuptials can keep Lucy Berberian, manager of her family-owned Kebab Kitchen, from the Jersey Shore’s annual Polar Bear Plunge. But her dive into the icy ocean is especially chilling when she finds a fellow swimmer doing the dead man’s float—for real . . .
Who would kill a man in cold blood during Ocean Crest, New Jersey’s most popular winter event? When Lucy learns the victim is Deacon Spooner, the reception hall owner who turned up his nose—and his price—at her wedding plans, she can’t help wondering who wouldn’t kill the pompous caterer . . .
Perhaps the culprit is the wedding cake baker whose career Deacon nearly destroyed? Or the angry bride whose reception he ruined? With her maid of honor, Katie, busily planning Lucy’s wedding without her, Lucy will have to get to the bottom of this cold-hearted business in time for Kebab Kitchen’s mouthwatering Christmas celebration—and before her hometown’s holiday spirit washes out to sea . . .
