I just took part in a book exchange and thought I'd shine a spotlight on the book I received. I was given IRISH STEWED by Kylie Logan. This book is the first in the Ethnic Eats Mystery series.
From the back cover:
Murder on the Menu

Much to Laurel's dismay, Sophie's Terminal at the Tracks is not the cozy bistro her aunt would have led her to believe-it's a run-down greasy spoon in an old railroad station. To save the dingy diner, Laurel cooks up a plan to feature alternating ethnic cuisine as specials.
