The Greeks of Beaubien Street Blog Tour and Giveaway from Pump Up Your Book!

About the Book:
Nestled below the skyline of Detroit you’ll find Greektown, a few short blocks of colorful bliss, warm people and Greek food. In spite of growing up immersed in the safety of her family and their rich culture, Jill Zannos doesn’t fit in. A Detroit homicide detective, she manages to keep one foot planted firmly in the traditions started by her grandparents, while the other navigates the most devastated neighborhoods in the city she can’t help but love. She is a no nonsense workaholic with no girlfriends, an odd boyfriend who refuses to grow up, and an uncanny intuition, inherited from her mystic grandmother, that acts as her secret weapon to crime solving success. Her story winds around tales of her family and their secret laden history, while she investigates the most despicable murder of her career.

The Greeks of Beaubien Street is a modern tale of a family grounded in old world, sometimes archaic, tradition, as they seek acceptance in American society. They could be any nationality, but they are Greek.

About the Author:

My Thoughts
The Greeks of Beaubien Street is part murder mystery and part family drama. Jill Zannos is a police officer who with her partner Albert investigates the murder of a young girl. As the investigation progresses we find that there is some really strange family dynamics going on in the murdered girls family.

We also get to meet the large Zannos family and learn a bit about the Greek culture. Definitely a character driven story about how vulnerable people can be and the secrets that are kept within a family. The book held my attention throughout and the author did a great job with all the characters and their individual stories. I hope to read more by this author. 

I received this book for review and was not monetarily compensated for my review.
