This week it is the 2nd in a series by Liz Lipperman called Beef Stolen-Off.  The first in the series was Liver Let Die which was really good!  The third in the series is due out in January 2013 and it is called Murder for the Halibut….Jordan is going on a cruise!


Aspiring sportswriter Jordan McAllister never imagined she’d be a food critic. Yet here in Ranchero, Texas, that’s exactly what she is. And while she may not know a flank steak from a filet mignon, she certainly knows how to rustle up trouble…

When Rusty’s mother begs her for help, Jordan knows she needs to grab the bull by the horns and get to the bottom of this mystery before she corrals herself into trouble…
