ASKING FOR MURDER (AC#3):  Buy the Book

asking for murder

 

Asking for Murder is the third in this very engaging series, one I’ve enjoyed from the start. Rececca is a great amateur sleuth, who is saved from being too saccharine by exhibiting both an “edge” and a self-deprecating sense of humor. It’s hard not to cheer her on. Roberta Isleib knows how to balance the needs of readers who look for both a strong mystery element and a glimpse into the life of the main character.

— Diana Vickery, The Cozy Library

Asking for Murder is good escapist reading, a charming and sometimes gritty mystery with an appealing protagonist who sleuths, cooks and psychoanalyzes.

— Marilyn Dahl, Shelf-Awareness
PREACHING TO THE CORPSE (AC #2): Buy the Book

preaching to the corpse

Dr. Rebecca Butterman, the quirky, flawed, eccentric, funny psychologist and advice columnist in “Preaching to the Corpse,” is my kind of protagonist.

“Church politics have never seemed so deadly. Pressed by her editor for a seasonal slant to her advice colums, Rebecca works out some of her own problems as she answers her readers’ letters. This would make a good choice for a book club!”

— Mary Helen Becker, Mystery News

Shrinks in Books and Movies

Grilled Shrimp and Peaches for a Crowd

LUCY BURDETTE: I know I’ve mentioned my supper club on this blog here in the past–we are six couples who try to get together 3 to 5 times a year for dinner and chatter. The hostess (and host) are responsible for the main course and the table setting, and each of the other couples brings […]

Blueberry Zucchini Bread #recipe

Fresh Cherry Cobbler with whipped cream #recipe

LUCY BURDETTE: My hub and I are mad for cherries when they are in season, and trust me we’ve eaten pounds and pounds of them this summer. But we’ve never done anything except eat them from the bowl. I couldn’t imagine pitting all those little guys. But then I got the image of a cherry […]
