Chick lit, Mystery

Big Trouble in Little Greektown by Kate Collins

I have read and reviewed the previous works of the series here: #1,#2


If you have seen my previous reviews for this series, you will notice that I enjoyed the first and not so much the second. With this book, the series is back in my favour, and I feel like there has been a strong foundation that has been set up with regards to future investigations and all that that entails.
Athena is in a steady relationship (I still do not see it!) now, and the family is coming around to her new zeal for doing things her way. She has made a name for herself in the local merchant’s association, and the local newspapers like to spot her when something goes wrong. Something does go wrong on an otherwise fun day.
Even before the actual events occur, we see all the fraying pieces and things that can turn sour for the town as a whole. Then a body is found, and Athen and Case are on the job (In that very order).
The investigation, as always, is carried out by consulting a bullet-pointed list of questions the pair consider important. They do not necessarily consult it while investigating(not all the time at least), but it is a sort of rehearsal.
Athena continues to let trust ruin her otherwise sharper intuitions, but her son does not have such qualms. He is precise and clear and gathers evidence to support any thoughts/accusations he has.
Overall, this brought the series back on track for me, and I started to enjoy the family dynamics again.
I would recommend giving this series a shot if you like a big family in the background and the noise they contribute to a cozy mystery.
I received an ARC thanks to NetGalley and the publishers but the review is entirely based on my own reading experience.
