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

Mango Lassi Recipe

LUCY BURDETTE: While in India for two weeks, we ate lots and lots of wonderful Indian food, most of it very spicy. Not necessarily hot–unless you asked for that, but definitely spicy. A man we met explained it this way: Indians don’t like plain food. That was certainly our experience! (We did not eat street […]
