WELCOME TO LUCY BURDETTE’S WEBSITE


Hooray, you’ve found your way to the home of the Key West food critic mysteries, cozy mysteries written by Lucy Burdette! Lucy is the pen name for clinical psychologist Roberta Isleib, author of the golf lovers mystery series and the advice column mysteries–and they are both me.

 

Great news for the Key West series: The eighth book, DEATH ON THE MENU, will be published by Crooked Lane Books on August 7. More info on the book and how to order can be found by clicking here.

 

You can find me, Lucy, every other Thursday talking food with the fun-loving crowd of culinary cozy mystery writers at Mystery Lovers Kitchen, and almost every day, talking everything else with the crime fiction writers of Jungle Red Writers. Do you Instagram? Then drop by my account to follow all the latest on life and writing. I admit, I’m addicted!

And I spend more time than I should on Facebook and Twitter–come join me. And I do love Pinterest:). My board called “Key West–the character” will give you tons of insight into how the island plays into the books.

 

Killer Takeout Cover SmallThe seventh Key West mystery, KILLER TAKEOUT, was published on April 5, 2016–zombies, hurricanes, weddings, murders–you’ll find lots of excitement and Key West details. Lots of ways to order it here

 

FATAL RESERVATIONS, book six in the food critic series hit bookshelves in 2015. You can order it now!

 

 

Book five in the series, DEATH WITH ALL THE TRIMMINGS, was out on December 2. You can order it here.

 

Here’s what the Booklist review had to say: Burdette infuses the mystery with Key West spirit and holiday fun along with delicious food references and recipes. This strong series continues a unique blend of island mayhem and sparkling characters surrounding a layered mystery.

So grab your copy, then settle in with a snack (you’ll need one!) and follow Hayley Snow’s adventures in the tropical paradise of Key West. You’ll find the “buy the books” link at the top of the page, but basically they are available wherever books are sold.

And please, drop me a line–I love to hear from readers–and I’m grateful for your support!

The fourth Key West mystery, MURDER WITH GANACHE was launched in February 2014.
