Six Feet Deep Dish

A delicious new cozy series from Mindy Quigley that'll have you craving pizza!

Six Feet Deep Dish is the first book in a new cozy mystery series by Mindy Quigley. Food cozies are relaxing and fun for me to read--this one checked all the cozy boxes and had me craving pizza!

Delilah has been a chef in some of the finest restaurants in Chicago. Now, she and her fiance have moved to the resort town of Geneva Bay, WI, to open Delilah's dream upscale pizza restaurant and to help care for her elderly Aunt Biz. Unfortunately, Delilah's fiance leaves her at their soft opening, a murder is committed, and Aunt Biz is found literally holding the gun. Delilah must help find the real murderer to save her aunt and her restaurant. And she will, with a bit of help from her friends!

This was a well-written and clever start to a new series! Delilah and company are witty and entertaining, with some laughs throughout the book. The action takes off immediately, and I found the pacing to be good throughout and the plot compelling. There's a large enough pool of suspects to keep you guessing, a few red herrings and a twist or two. I just loved the setting! A pizza place in what used to be a mob-fronted restaurant is intriguing. As the series continues, I imagine the author will have even more fun with this setting. And I will be along for the ride, as this is a series I plan to follow! Pizza recipes included! Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin's Press for the opportunity to review this ARC. I enjoyed it!

My steep was iced Southern Sweet Black tea from Snarky Teas. I bought their mason jar steeper set and made this as sun tea, and it was so so good! I'd forgotten how good sun tea tastes, and now I'm obsessed with it! The perfect accompaniment to this pizza-themed culinary cozy! Visit for this blend.

From the Blurb:

Fresh mozzarella, tangy tomato sauce, and murder: the perfect recipe for a delicious first entry in Mindy Quigley's Six Feet Deep Dish, a delectable new series... Delilah O’Leary can’t wait to open her new gourmet deep-dish pizzeria in Geneva Bay, Wisconsin—a charming resort town with a long history as a mobsters’ hideaway, millionaires’ playground, and vacation mecca. Engaged to a hunk with a hefty trust fund, Delilah is poised to begin a life that’s just about as delicious as one of her cheesy creations. Just before opening night, though, Delilah’s plans for pizza perfection hit the skids when her fiancé dumps her and leaves her with a very large memento from their relationship—Butterball, their spoiled, plus-sized tabby cat. Delilah’s trouble deepens when she discovers a dead body and finds her elderly aunt holding the murder weapon. Handsome local police detective Calvin Capone, great grandson of the legendary gangster, opens an investigation, threatening to sink Delilah’s pie-in-the-sky ambitions before they can even get off the ground. To save her aunt and get her pizza place generating some dough, Delilah must deliver the real killer.
