If I could give a book ten stars, this would be the one. This is the third book in the 'Goddess of Greene St' mystery series. I loved the first two books as well. Lots of moving parts in this one while Athena and Case try to solve a tricky murder. All the red herrings will have you going in circles. Now don't go to the last page to find out what it is, but there is a surprise there that you will never see coming. :)
Big Trouble in Little Greektown is the third installment in the A Goddess of Greene St Mystery series set in Sequoia, Michigan and featuring blogger, garden center worker and aspiring private detective Athena Spencer. Things have been settling down for Athena since she and her son have moved back to her hometown following a nasty divorce. She's enjoying her relationship with Case Donnelly, and the two are looking forward to opening a detective agency, well she was until Case decided to bring in a partner in the overbearing Lila Talbot.
A nature walk during the Save the Dunes charity fundraiser, sends the couple into investigative mode, although Case has to be careful that he doesn't jeopardize his license. The investigation uncovers dirty politics, environmental issues and greedy landowners.
Always a fun series, it's nice to spend time with Athena's large Greek family, as the sisters deal with the her parents strict beliefs, and Athena does her best to hide her identity as the popular blogger they all read each morning over coffee. While I enjoy Oscar, the pet raccoon who resides at the Garden Center, I'm not quite sure that he should be a pet solely dependent upon the family.
