So happy to report that sales are going well with FATAL RESERVATIONS–and even more important, reviewers are delighted with the book.

With no further ado, here’s what they’re saying about FATAL RESERVATIONS:

Complete with a clever plot, a cast of familiar and amiable characters, a buffet of food and all the wackiness of Key West, “Fatal Reservations” displays Burdette at peak form and whets the appetite for Hayley’s next case.–Jay Stafford, Richmond Times-Dispatch

 

Final Thoughts: Reserve your time to read this series, it’s delightful. Fatal Reservations digs into the community to create an entertaining book full of characters that jump off the page and mouth-watering food.  Jennifer Rummel, YA BookNerd

 

Fatal Reservations is a fast paced, well plotted mystery full of quirky characters and local color. Between the setting, the guilt-free pleasure of reading about amazing food, and the cats, this has become one of my favorite mystery series. Ingrid King, The Conscious Cat

 

Hayley’s knowledge of the psychology behind diners’ choices is just the final seasoning on this fun, smartly plotted mystery. Cynthia Chow, Kings River Life

 

Burdette is clearly on a roll here — like her most recent two books in the series, Death With All the Trimmings  and Murder With Ganache, FATAL RESERVATIONS is tightly plotted, quick-paced, and full of unforgettable characters, dead and alive. Beth Kanell, Kingdom Books

You can buy the book wherever books are sold!

Don’t be Afraid by Miss Gloria

(Every once in a while we invite the characters from the Key West mysteries to share a post. Today Hayley Snow’s roommate, Miss Gloria, has something to say…)

I have a new job, did I mention that? Probably not, as I don’t remember things exactly the way I used to LOL. Anyway Key West has a beautiful, historical cemetery containing tons of fascinating stories of former islanders, and beautiful carved stones and crypts, too. So I’ve volunteered to be trained as a cemetery tour guide.

My adorable roommate, food critic Hayley Snow, is not a fan of my new activity. Honestly? I think she’s terrified that all that death will rub off on me and I’ll and end up in one of those tombs instead of being on the outside telling their stories. But as I tell Hayley, we need to remind ourselves about our history, about the interesting people that came before us. We’ll want some little old ladies remembering us in the decades to come, won’t we?

Anyway, I’m not superstitious. And besides, often the people we should be afraid of are the live ones, not the dead. I should warn you we are bound to find some things in this cemetery that might not belong there.

You’ll be able to read all about that in our July book, FATAL RESERVATIONS. You can pre-order that story right here.
