“Yassou, Dad.” Callie smiled at her father. Her facial muscles felt frozen in place and her heart was pounding – the last thing she needed was a discussion about going to the police station to report on the murder of a boyfriend her father didn’t even know she had. Hoping that George was in a hurry, Callie tried to act normal. Maybe he’d leave before he figured out what Sands was doing there.
“What brings you here today?” she asked George, while shooting Sands a furtive look.
Her father wrapped Callie in one of his signature bear hugs. It seemed that he held her even more tightly than usual. “Dad,” she said. “I can’t breathe.”
George loosened his grip. “Okay, breathe, breathe. I was in the neighborhood so I thought I’d check on your business, see it it’s picked up any, George said, sitting down at the table closest to the cashier station. Leave it to her father to start right in with concerns for her business. If only he’d seen the crowds just half an hour before, but that wouldn’t have been good, come to think of it, not with all the talk about Drew.
About the Author
Award-winning writer and blogger Jenny Kales worked for years as a freelancer and is thrilled to have released her debut cozy mystery novel. Kales’ marriage into a Greek-American Midwestern family inspired The Callie's Kitchen mysteries, featuring Calliope “Callie” Costas, food business owner and amateur sleuth.

Ms. Kales is an avid reader, cook and baker and she's addicted to mystery TV, especially anything on Masterpiece Mystery or BBC America. She lives just outside of Chicago with her husband, two daughters and a cute but demanding Yorkshire terrier, and is hard at work on the next novel in the Callie’s Kitchen mystery series.
