About the Author

Lisa Shiroff writes because she's not sure what else she can do with herself. Oh sure, she's a wife, mom of two kids, and manages to walk her dog every day, but as far as careers go, the only thing she knows how to do is write, cook and mix a drink. Chefs and bartenders have to work weekends, though, so she's sticking to the writing gig. She lives in south Jersey and, ever sporting rose colored glasses, she really does think Atlantic City is a bright and hopeful place.

A cozy mystery that's almost a kitchen-mystery except it doesn't include the recipes at the end of the book. I wish I could eat what Lucy was eating! Lucy McCool is a busy bee recovering from some major blows to her life - a divorce from the man who took her virginity and the death of her father. She has a BFF in her sister, who helps her contend with two teenaged kids and a nagging mother while Lucy juggles a job at a community center for senior citizens and a budding relationship with her ex-husband's former friend and business-associate. There are romantic subplots but no erotica. If I was Lucy's friend, I would tell her that she has a problem with emotionally manipulative men. New guy feels just as shady as her ex and it will be interesting to see how this relationship unfolds over the course of the series. The mystery emerges slowly from Lucy's chaotic life. I didn't put two and two together until the author wove the pieces together. I had to suspend my disbelief for the treasure hunt, once it left the residences and ventured into public domains. Call me a pessimist but I don't think the clues would last as long as they did on public grounds. I received a free copy of this book from Goodreads First Reads.
