I love this photo taken in spring of 2019 when Lucy Burdette visited Copperfish and told us all about her Key West Food Critic Mystery novels. We all looked happy because we were!
The day I discovered Lucy’s series of books set in Key West was a lightbulb moment for me. I had no idea she would continue this amazing series or, that I would get to know her. Let alone having the privilege of having her appear at Copperfish Books and tell her story to our beloved customers and her many readers. Over the years I’ve sold many dozens of Lucy’s books. They are all super and perfect for vacationers as well as those of us who live in the hot spot of Florida. What a treat to hear her talk about her characters and energize the audience.
Lucy Burdette is a pen name. Roberta Isleib is Lucy’s real name. You can follow her on Facebook from here. You’ll get to meet her now famous kitty Mr T-bone and her brand new cute as can be puppy Lottie. I melt each time I see them getting to know each other better.
I don’t know about you folks but I love a good slice of key lime pie. When I found out Lucy’s next book in the series would feature my favorite pie I knew there would be plenty of sweet stuff. And there is. I even asked Lucy who has the best key lime pie. She laughed and said she would have to “kill” me if she told me. 🙀 That was before the book came out.
I read THE KEY LIME CRIME as a digital review copy on my ipad a couple months ago, but was so humbled and happy to see that Lucy had mentioned me and Copperfish in the back of the book.
She’s a very generous author and you are going to love hearing all about her new book. I hope you’ll join us tomorrow night through zoom. Just click here and it will take you to the page on our website where you can sign up. Don’t forget that the event is free and a good time is guaranteed. Please come.
We, at Copperfish Books, will have copies of all of Lucy’s Food Critic’s books and they will be available for purchase through mail or in store. The new book will include this shout out for me and to Copperfish in the back of the book. If you’d like to begin with the first in the series start with AN APPETITE FOR MURDER
which is number one. You’re going to love them all and they each stand alone.
I want to thank Lucy’s publisher Crooked Lane Books for all the work they’ve done. We want this wonderful series to continue forever!!
