But I love imagining Hayley and Miss Gloria living on Houseboat Row--it's a real place, but I make up the details. And sometimes I go visit a friend who lives there, or sit on the dock and listen and watch so I can get things right.

The eleventh book in the series will be out next summer--new title should be announced soon!(less)
Lucy Burdette Yes I am! This one will be published in 2018 by Crooked Lane Books, probably in the late summer. I'll keep you posted!…moreYes I am! This one will be published in 2018 by Crooked Lane Books, probably in the late summer. I'll keep you posted!(less)

“The plum-colored night sky was shifting to pink to make room for the day, which looked as though it might turn out “glorious and whimsical,” as the Key West Citizen had promised.”
Lucy Burdette, Topped Chef

“Cooks are dashing, improvisational, wayward, intuitive; bakers are measured, careful, rational, precise.” —Diana Abu-Jaber”
Lucy Burdette, An Appetite for Murder

“Hayley makes this to celebrate Sam and her mother’s engagement and upcoming wedding. It’s a sheet cake, so it serves a crowd. But it’s stunning, especially if you make it during strawberry season. Ingredients for the strawberry cake 1 cup butter, softened 2 cups sugar”
Lucy Burdette, Killer Takeout
