KILLER TAKEOUT: #7 in the Key West food critic series hits bookstores today!

Category: Adventurous retirement

Editor’s Note: This announcement of her 7th Key West food critic mystery is from Lucy Burdette, aka Mrs.
April 5, 2016 — Killer Takeout by Lucy Burdette takes place during Fantasy Fest, a zany ten-day festival beginning with the unofficial zombie bike ride, and ending with an enormous, creative parade winding from the Truman waterfront across the length of Duval Street.

The research necessary to write this book was arduous, as always. For his part Mr. Top Retirements was a super good sport, as we got our faces painted like zombies for the bike ride, trotted around town in tutus (no body paint costumes for us though), and served as Fantasy Fest parade ambassadors. We also ate every kind of takeout we could get our hands on–because what seasoned food critic tries to elbow her way into a restaurant with 90,000 visitors crammed onto the island? The only research we avoided was experiencing a hurricane, which to me would be much more scary than zombies or people wearing body paint only.

You can buy the book in your favorite local bookstore or from Amazon.

  2. You “guys” look good!

    I once mentioned the idea that books that gave the “flavor” of a place would be a good topic for topretirements…I think the book that I mentioned was ONE SECOND AFTER…not sure. It does gave an interesting comparison of Asheville and Black Mountain in NC

    I know that I am always surprised at how light it stay in the evening at places near the western part of a time zone…somehow that becomes clearer when reading a novel.
