My Teaser for this week is from

Murder With Ganache

A Key West Food Critic Mystery

by Lucy Burdette


Genre: Cozy Mystery

 My teaser from page 38 in the paperback.

 The sun was dropping low on the horizon, and the waves had picked up just enough to set the boat gently rocking. I’d have given Evinrude, my first born, to stay home and sip a glass of wine on the deck of our houseboat. Alone.

The cat trotted past me tail hoisted high, looking outraged, as though he understood exactly what I was thinking.

“Not really,” I told him. “Just kidding. I wouldn’t trade you for anything.”


Read on if you want to know more.


Hayley Snow, the food critic for Key Zest magazine, has her plate heaped high with restaurant reviews, doughnut and sticky bun tastings, and an article on the Hemingway cats. But this week she’s also in charge of her best friend’s wedding. And then someone adds a side of murder…

For better or worse, Hayley has agreed to bake over 200 cupcakes for her friend Connie’s wedding while still meeting her writing deadlines. The last thing she needs is family drama. But her parents come barreling down on the island like a category 3 hurricane and on their first night in town her stepbrother, Roby, disappears into the spring break party scene in Key West.

When Hayley hears that two teenagers have stolen a jet ski, she sets aside her oven mitts and goes in search of Rory. She finds him, barely conscious, but his female companion isn’t so lucky. Now Hayley has to let the cupcakes cool and assemble the sprinkles of clues to clear her stepbrother’s name—before someone else gets iced.

  2. Kathy Martin says:

    Sounds like she has a lot on her plate. (Sorry! The pun just needed to be made.) I’m becoming a bigger fan of cozies and this one sounds great. This week I’m featuring a book that has been sitting on TBR mountain way too long – Martians Abroad by Carrie Vaughn. Happy reading!

  3. ljennison says:

    Just for a second there I thought she had named a kid after the motor. Sounds like a good cozy. Hope you’re enjoying it!

  4. I’m in the mood for a cozy! I’ve loved other books by this author…and that is a great teaser. Here’s mine: “GENUINE FRAUD”

  5. Hehee, I love that her cat is her firstborn!

  6. A lot of people treat their pets as children. Cute to see she feels the same.

  7. This book looks interesting. I love the cover, it is so appealing….I want to have a piece of that chocolate cake! I also want those cats (I love cats!).

  8. I think I’d like Hayley. This sounds good! Thank you for sharing and stopping by my blog!

      When I switched to self hosting it created a glitch. Sometimes it works correctly, sometimes it doesn’t. LOL Still here!

    Here’s my Teaser Tuesday from Among the Dead by J.R. Backlund

  13. Ohhh this sounds like a fun mystery!! I love books like this! And I’m glad I’m not the only one who talks to my pets like that!! 😂

  14. Great title. I love a good pun!

  15. Great teaser, thanks for sharing!

  16. sjhigbee says:

    I’ve heard about ganache on all those cookery programmes where food porn abounds:)). This one looks great fun, Laura and I hope you thoroughly enjoy it!

  17. I think this series might be just a bit too tongue in cheek and cozy for me, although I do like to have a small stack of them in reserve, just in case I fancy a light read.

    I’m also not a fan of water, so the thought of the houseboat gently rocking in the waves, fills me with dread, rather than peace and a sense of tranquility.

    I checked out the series on Goodreads though and I loved the suite of cover art as it all appeared together.

    Enjoy the rest of the book and have a good end to your week :)


  18. Daniela Ark says:

    man one of these days I’m gonna have to cave in and read cozies! They have the best covers and.. food!:)

  19. This whole series looks like so much fun! I read another book in another series by this author and loved it and this one is high up on my TBR!

  20. Totally interested!! I love cozies like this.
