"Nashville Katz is about to be the main course of her own Early Bird Special! Has deli owner and former New Yorker Gwen "Nashville" Katz bitten off more than she can chew? The spunky owner of Murray's Pastrami Swami finds the McCoy's Bakery delivery guy dead right in front of her deli, and his employers want to settle someone's corned beef hash. With the pregnant wife of the expired driver due any minute and her policeman brother turning up the heat, Gwen's in quite a pickle--she's a prime suspect and is about to face a griddling hot enough to sizzle a Hebrew National Frankfurter. Clearing her name and finding the killer won't be easy. Is it a newspaper editor with an off-the-record grudge? A dirty cop? Maybe a vegan with a serious beef? Between juggling two romances and making salami sandwiches, Gwen barely has time to dig for clues. But when she uncovers an un-kosher Katz family secret, she knows it's now. . .or never! Because the ties that bind. . .can also strangle! A Deadly Deli MysteryA native of Brooklyn, New York, Delia Rosen is the author of A Brisket, A Casket and One Foot in the Gravy. She now lives in Maine. She spends her time between writing and searching for good bagels."-- Provided by publisher.

In hindsight, I have to admit changing the authors (if they indeed did change) was a good decision. The murder mysteries in this book and 'One Foot in the Gravy' are much better than what we had in 'A Brisket, A Casket.' They are far more twisty and interesting than the first book. I like this new Gwen more and more as I get to know her (even though she is a tough cookie to like upon first meeting). Surprisingly, I also enjoy her indecisiveness in regards to her romantic relationships. It is clear she has some personal issues to confront and resolve before she fully commits to someone again. I hope to get to read more in the coming books :-)

Even though this is the oldest (chronologically) that the library has, there are apparently at least two earlier books in the Deadly Deli mystery series. Maybe it would have helped to read those earlier books first. I just didn't like the main character; I couldn't see why anyone found her attractive or likable, I certainly did not. I won't be reading any others in this series.
