Killer Key West Stress @LucyBurdette #giveaway


by Hayley Snow from Lucy Burdette's Key West food critic mysteries

 
When I followed a guy to Key West a couple years ago, you could have filled an encyclopedia with what I didn't know about living on an island, especially this island. Lots of times visitors don't venture any further than the bars on Duval Street. But there's so much happening on the rest of our 2 x 4 mile rock. Real life, I'd call it, with all its complications and competition and sadness and lots of joy.

 


 
But during some times of the year, Key West is dominated by a big and crazy event. This week it's Fantasy Fest, a 10-day adult-themed costume party during which some folks behave in ways they would never consider at home.

And the restaurants are jammed with outsiders, so I wouldn't even consider my regular restaurant review column at Key Zest. Instead I'll be giving an insider look at where to get killer takeout. But I'm also supporting my friend Danielle, who has just won the crown for queen of Fantasy Fest. And my mother, who's finally marrying her adorable beau, Sam, on the  beach at the end of the week.

 All that's assuming the tropical storm on the other side of Cuba doesn't decide to ramp up and veer in our direction. Do I sound a little bit stressed? Good gravy, I'm not the only one! The entire police force is vibrating like one giant, blue-colored stress  ball. And that means my heartthrob Detective Bransford is super wound up too...and a body falling during the zombie bike ride doesn't help one bit.

I hope you'll enjoy the story as much as I enjoyed telling it! We're giving away a signed copy of KILLER TAKEOUT today to celebrate. All you have to do is share this post--on Facebook or Twitter or Pinterest, then leave your name and your email in the comments, and you'll be entered in the drawing.

KILLER TAKEOUT will be on bookshelves next Tuesday, April 5. You can order it wherever books are sold. And follow Lucy and the gang's Key West adventures on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest.

  1. Fantasy Fest sounds like a fun time (and so busy for the restaurant businesses).

  15. The hurricane photo makes me uncomfortable. Let's hope they continue to forget how to find south Florida for at least another 10 years!
