What do Santa's Sidekick, a dead lawyer and a geriatric vampire have in common? Meet Mina Kitchen - a forty-something single who finds trouble quicker than she can whip up a batch of breakfast breads. Plural. Her catering disorder runs neck-and-neck with her weird luck, and her cat's weirder tendency toward gnawing elf gear. Okay, and getting kidnapped a couple of times in one week is a little strange, too.

Her next door neighbor Vito's past as ex-leader of the Moils, the Jewish-Polish Family from Bumville, New Jersey, comes to light and throws a dollop of dilemmas into an already simmering plot.

Top it all off with a counterfeiting ring, a county-wide dearth of holiday wrapping tape, and a mass of pets running loose at the local mall, and what do you have? A recipe for disaster that Mina whips to a froth.

Christmas Bizarre will keep you smiling when you're not shouting up a belly laugh. Set in Lancaster, "Pee-Ay" you'll discover a lively cast of characters, funny dialogue and lots of twists and turns. Hang on tight - you're in for a slalom of a holiday ride.

Christmas Bizarre is packed with delightful surprises - along with a bonus of free recipes, vetted by Lund's chef husband, for your own culinary creation and consumption.

Reviewed by Anne-Marie Reynolds for Readers' Favorite Christmas Bizarre (Mina Kitchen Book 2) by Lizz Lund is a hilarious sequel to Kitchen Addiction and follows the misfortunes of unemployed with three jobs Mina Kitchen. Currently employed as Santa’s Sidekick at the Mall, Mina also has a couple of jobs preparing meals and menus as well as general kitchen help. Her next-door neighbor, who has a key to her house, is called Vito and it comes to light that he used to be the leader of a Jewish Polish family. Acting strangely, he is using Mina’s basement to store boxes, although Mina does not ask what's inside. A Christmas wrapping tape shortage, followed by a dead lawyer, an old man who is convinced he is a vampire, a counterfeiting ring and a kidnapping or two blend into a recipe for true disaster. Christmas Bizarre by Lizz Lund was a funny book. It started out very lighthearted and got a little deeper with each chapter. Not so deep that you couldn’t grasp what was going on, though! It kept me laughing all the way through and brought to mind Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum stories. Ms Lund has a bit of a winner on her hands here. I would like to have read the first story and will definitely be reading the rest of the series. Very well written, excellent, quite lovable characters and some very witty lines made this into a book that I would read again just for a giggle and a bit of light hearted relief. Bring on the sequel – I can’t wait!
