LUCY BURDETTE: At least once a year, we have Book Club Week at one of my group blogs, Mystery Lovers Kitchen. I love book clubs–love belonging and love visiting. And I love recommending books for clubs to consider:). This time around I suggested MURDER WITH GANACHE, the fourth in the Key West food critic mystery [...]
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!

by Janet Snow, from Lucy Burdette’s Key West food critic mystery series Did you happen to see the swimmer Diana Nyad splash ashore on Smathers Beach in Key West? She is one amazing lady–64 years old and this was the fifth time she tried to swim the 100-plus miles from Cuba to Key West. [...]
LUCY BURDETTE: We’ve had a big problem in our house this summer: way too many green beans. Of course I put the problem out to my Facebook friends. And got some amazing recipe suggestions back, ranging from Asian style to good old-fashioned southern green beans cooked a long time with bacon (I think that [...]
LUCY BURDETTE: Even Kenny Chesney said it when he performed at a free concert at the Hogs Breath Saloon two years ago: It’s hard to choose healthy foods in Key West! (Actually, I don’t think it’s only Key West–it’s eating out everywhere.) Anyway, there’s a new restaurant in town that used to be the Paradise [...]
