When Gilda Greco invites her closest friends to a VIP dinner, she plans to share David Korba’s signature dishes and launch their joint venture - Xenia, an innovative Greek restaurant near Sudbury, Ontario.
Unbeknownst to Gilda, David has also invited Michael Taylor, a lecherous photographer who has throughout the past three decades managed to annoy all the women in the room. One woman follows Michael to a deserted field for his midnight run and stabs him in the jugular.
Gilda’s life is awash with complications as she wrestles with a certain detective’s commitment issues and growing doubts about her risky investment in Xenia. Frustrated, Gilda launches her own investigation and uncovers decades-old secrets and resentments that have festered until they explode into untimely death. Can Gilda outwit a killer bent on killing again?

Good Mystery not good Audio quality.
This is a well crafted story with an interesting group of characters.
The problem is the Audio is not a good quality so it makes the Narrator appear worse then she sounds on the Audio Book.
The Audio needs to be done again if the quality of the sound improves I will review it again.
This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
Narrator was not appropriate for this listen
I listened to the first book in the Gilda Greco series and enjoyed it very much. I was thrilled when I saw the second book was available. So thrilled that I did not check the narrator. I never occurred to me that there would be a difference. From the first word, I knew something was wrong. I checked and sure enough, a different narrator.
There is nothing wrong with Eastridge's voice. In fact, with a different book, she would have been quite pleasant. However, Gilda Greco is 52 and Eastridge - though pleasant - comes across like she should be studying for a history final with Archie and Veronica. It was disconcerting.
I tried to stay with the listen because I knew the quality of the writing would still be there since book one was so good. I couldn't do it. There was a point in chapter two where all of these 50 something women got together but to hear the bevy of those voices come across as high-pitched and whiney was just too much.
There are very few books with a 50+ year old heroine. This character deserved to be expressed as such.
