New Releases

What it's about:

Welcome to Aunt Pat's barbecue restaurant, which serves up Memphis fun with a side order of murder. Rebecca Adrian came to Memphis to suss out the best local BBQ for a prominent Cooking Channel Show. Trouble is, a mystery ingredient has killed her-and now all fingers are pointing to Aunt Pat's restaurant. Horrified that her family is being accused of murder, Lulu fires up her investigative skills to solve the crime before someone else gets skewered.
Recipes included.


"DELICIOUS AND SUSPICIOUS is author Riley Adam's first book in the Memphis Barbecue Mystery series. Can't wait to see what Lulu's cooking up next. This saucy amateur sleuth will have you coming back wanting more."

"With a strong fully seasoned support cast who enhances the whodunit, Delicious and Suspicious is truly scrumptious."
--Harriet Klausner

"Just like the pork barbecue and spicy corn muffins that fill the bellies of the fictitious patrons of Aunt Pat’s, the Southern flavor is what makes this novel unique.  The characters live and breathe on the page, not as stereotypes of Southerners but as colorful personalities that complement the Memphis setting."
- Lisa Marie Wilkinson

  1. Actually, Delicious and Suspicious is my current 'read in progress'. I just started it this evening so I'm only up to the discovery of the body but your delightful cast of quirky characters has already got me hooked.

  2. Thanks so much, Linda! I hope you'll enjoy the rest of the book, too. :)

  3. One of the best books I've read this summer. Can't wait for the next book to come out.

  4. Just finished this a couple of days ago. I was going through a stressful time and it was just the thing I needed to take my mind off everything. The only problem is that I'm craving BBQ. And I'm a transplanted Texan and former temporary North Carolinian on the way to Colorado. Not sure where I'm going to find good BBQ.

  5. I'm looking forward to getting my hands on a copy. Great cover, by the way :)

  6. Thanks so much, everybody! Wow, you've put a smile on my face today. :)

  7. I love cozy's like this. Can't wait to read it.

  8. Am in the middle of the book and I have the strongest hankerin' for BBQ! Really enjoying reading about Lulu, her family and the Graces.

  9. Wow. . .pork BBQ and spicy corn muffins. With butter, of course. Yum, oh, yum. Want some of those.

  10. Delicious and Suspicious is on my TBR pile, and I'm already salivating! Spicy corn muffins, the best!!!
