WELCOME TO LUCY BURDETTE’S WEBSITE


Hooray, you’ve found your way to the home of the Key West food critic 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.

You can also find me, Lucy, every Thursday talking food with the fun-loving crowd of culinary mystery writers at Mystery Lovers Kitchen, and almost every day, talking everything else with the women of Jungle Red Writers. 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.

Speaking of books, the fourth Key West mystery, MURDER WITH GANACHE was launched in February 2014. So 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.

Drop me a line–I love to hear from readers–and I’m grateful for your support!

Key Lime Pie a la David Sloan

LUCY BURDETTE: As many of you already know, I have a particular fondness for Key lime pie, as it became the murder weapon in the first food critic mystery, AN APPETITE FOR MURDER. Naturally Hayley Snow is suspected when the victim turns out to be her ex-boyfriend’s new squeeze. “Are the cops looking at any [...]
