Here's the first in a new cozy mystery series, Mindy Quigley's Six Feet Deep Dish, starring chef Delilah O'Leary. She's about to open a gourmet deep-dish pizzeria in Geneva Bay, Wisconsin, largely funded by her wealthy trust fund fiancÚ (and business partner) Sam Van Meter. Together they share tubby rescue cat Butterball.

Helped by sous-chef Sonya, bartender Daniel, and hostess Melody, she's ready for a perfect opening night. Then she and Sam break up - he leaves her Butterball. The opening goes on of course, attended by Delilah's Auntie Biz in her wheelchair, whose memory is failing but whose 'voice had more decibel power than a trumpeting rhino's.' Biz is attended by her caregiver Jeremy.

The celebration ends with Delilah finding a corpse and Biz nearby holding the murder weapon! The investigation is led by handsome detective Calvin Capone (great-grandson of the legendary gangster), but of course Delilah is determined to find the killer herself and clear her Auntie's name.

Six Feet Deep Dish is totally over the top but its lively set of leads make for an entertaining cozy read.
