    Spicy & Hot Murder Mystery

    Aunt Pat's Barbecue Restaurant in the heart of Memphis (Tenn.) feels a bit of a hit when an anonymous food critic gives it a bad review. Famous for its ribs and spicy cornbread, Aunt Pat's takes the bad press much better than another restaurant that closes its doors after a bad review. Lulu Taylor, owner of Aunt Pat's, is more worried about one of her close friends and loyal customers, Evelyn. It seems Evelyn is blinded by the love of her former husband who has cheating ways and always looking for money. When it's learned that Evelyn's ex (Adam) is the anonymous food critic, things heat up hotter than the Fourth of July. Before long Adam is found dead and the list of suspects begins to grow. Was it his ex-soon-to-be again wife, was it his soon-to-be ex-wife, one of the restaurant owners he blasted in a review, or just a loyal restaurant customer upset over his take on the delicious food? When a second person turns up dead, the situation gets as sticky as the sauce on Aunt Pat's lip-smackin BBQ ribs. As Lulu tries to sort through the list of suspects, she gets a little too close to the killer. Meanwhile, the gang pulls together to help out one of their own with a most unusual wedding at Graceland. Author Riley Adams has created a group of characters that will have you laughing, crying and shaking your head. If you live in the South, her take on Southern charm will remind you why you love it so. This is a story about family, friendship, loyalty, and Southern charm, not to mention murder, mystery, mayhem and intrigue. FINGER LICKIN' DEAD is the second installment in the Memphis BBQ Mystery series, but is a stand alone book. An added bonus is several of the delicious recipes are included in the back of the book. Once you pick up FINGER LICKIN' DEAD, you won't be able to put it down until you find out whodunit and how the wedding turned out.

    Riley Adams is the literary heir apparent to Lucille Ball!

    Adams is the creative force behind the hilariously piquant Memphis BBQ mystery series. Adams returns and radiates with her sophomore outing Finger Lickin' Dead and her ambrosial cast of merrymakers to serve up a titillating mystery that would make the King quiver in his blue suede shoes. (Yea, I went there).


    Trust me, Adams isn't just hashing out a "mystery with recipes on the side" or a "culinary" cozy littered with the same ole shriveled plots rinsed, recycled and reiterated ad infinitum. Listen to me, Adams is the fresh voice when it comes to food, murder, family and laughter. Authentic laughter that resonates deep in your core and brings the joyous tears to your eyes. All the juicy good stuff is captured within 272 pages of Adams' Finger Lickin' Dead. Listen to me, Finger Lickin' Dead cements Adams as the sovereign dominion in this sub-genre she luminously created with last year's Delicious and Suspicious.

    Hear me when I say, if Elvis is out there somewhere, he will come out of hiding to grab some mouthwatering BBQ @ Aunt Pat's or dare I say rise from the.

    With quirky, irresistible characters and deeply clever narrative

    With quirky, irresistible characters and deeply clever narrative that magically transmutes the reader into a detective, "Finger Lickin' Dead" will have you craving far more than Memphis barbecue; you'll be salivating until you can get your fingers on her next literary feast.




    Her clever recipe:




    1 Cup - Do not give away anything the reader can solve him or herself. Let
    readers investigate vicariously through all the characters.




    2 Cups - Write characters that are memorable, genuine, and adorable.




    1 TB - Keep the pages turning with tasty barbecue and interesting settings.




    2 TB - Keep the reader bubbling with side stories that stir a very
    tasty barbecue sauce, right down to the finest ingredients.




    Dash - Extra spices to taste that suspend the reader right till the
    last few pages.




    Just bake at 350 degrees Adamsheit for about 250 pages and you'll have them begging to come back to Aunt Pat's for the next sticky, mouth-watering book.




    But you will have to get in line behind me.




    Yours in literature,
    J.G.C.
