DEATH IN FOUR COURSES–Here now!

We admit, we’re sizzling over the release of the second Key West food critic mystery, DEATH IN FOUR COURSES. Here are a few of our favorite reviews so far:

“All the elements of a winning recipe: Key West, food and fun! The not-so-secret ingredients? Lucy Burdette’s exquisite plotting and sly prose set her apart. Death in Four Courses is a full course feast!”
~~Julia Spencer-Fleming, NYTBS author of ONE WAS A SOLDIER 

PUBLISHERS WEEKLY: “Near the start of Burdette’s yummy sequel to An Appetite for Murder, Key West food critic Hayley Snow brings her mother down from New Jersey for a visit… Outspoken Mom provides tart commentary as Hayley once again turns sleuth. Anyone who’s ever overpaid for a pretentious restaurant meal will relish this witty cozy.”

“What fun! ….Key West and food — a winning combination. I can’t wait for the next entry in this charming series.”
~~ New York Times bestselling author Diane Mott Davidson

“An excellent sense of place and the occasional humorous outburst aren’t the only things An Appetite for Murder has going for it, though: There is a solid mystery within its pages….Not only does Burdette capture the physical and pastoral essence of Key West, she celebrates the food.”
~~Ed Irvin, The Florida Book Review

To read about how I see the process of writing a book, here’s an essay on the New Haven Register’s book blog, hosted by the fabulous writer, Sandi Kahn Shelton.

And Susan Boyer’s terrific interview on Get Lost in a Story.

Early Reviews and Book 3!

Isn’t it crazy to be talking about book 3 when DEATH IN FOUR COURSES isn’t quite out? Nevertheless, that’s how the book business works…and I’ve just learned that the new title for book 3 will be TOPPED CHEF. I’m putting on the finishing touches right now–and having a ball with a Key West style cooking reality show! (Photo is of me and John volunteering at Duval Uncorked, one of the events in the new book.)

Meanwhile, here are a few early reviews for DEATH IN FOUR COURSES:

And I’m thrilled to have my first review ever (ten published books!) in Publishers Weekly–thank goodness it’s a good one! Here’s my favorite line: “Anyone who’s ever overpaid for a pretentious restaurant meal will relish this witty mystery.”

And while you’re waiting to get your copy of DIFC, here’s a blog post on trunk novels over at the Girlfriends Book Blog. Turns out I have six of them!
