When Lucy Berberian quits her Philadelphia law firm and heads home to Ocean Crest, she knows what she’s getting—the scent of funnel cake, the sight of the wooden roller coaster, and the tastes of her family’s Mediterranean restaurant. But murder wasn’t on the menu . . . Things are slow in the off-season in this Jersey Shore town, but Lucy doesn’t mind. She doesn’t even mind waitressing at the Kebab Kitchen. Her parents have put in a new hummus bar, with every flavor from lemon to roasted red pepper. It’s fun to see their calico cat again, and to catch up with her old BFF, who’s married to a cop now. She could do without Heather Banks, though. The Gucci-toting ex-cheerleader is still as nasty as she was back in high school . . . and unfortunately, she’s just taken over as the local health inspector. Just minutes after eating at the Kebab Kitchen—where she’s tallied up a whole list of bogus violations—she falls down dead in the street. Word on the grapevine is it’s homicide, and Lucy’s the number one suspect . . . Recipes included!

Julia Child in her classic book, The Way to Cook (published by Knopf), writes of her concern that low-fat cooking may rob us of ''the pleasures of the table.'' I couldn't agree more! There is no reason for low-fat, low-cholesterol, heart-healthy cooking to rob us of the pleasures of food. Eating is one of the great joys of life. And food doesn't have to be grim and punishing in order for it to be healthy for your heart. In this book, with the assistance of over 50 top chefs, I show you how to make heart-healthy cooking one of the great ''pleasures of the table.'' You'll be surprised at how simple measures can help you cut the fat without cutting the taste. The recipes in this book are not your run-of-the-mill low-fat recipes. Here, you'll find gourmet recipes that are easy to make and taste great. Although I care passionately about the links between nutrition and the healthy heart, I am not a food cop. My background as both a cardiologist and a chef make me uniquely suited not only to care for your heart but also to provide you with meals that won't leave you feeling deprived. I recognize that in order for people to change their habits, they must be given food options that are tasty and exciting. The nutrition aspects of food must meld with pleasure and taste. So The Healthy Heart Cookbook For Dummies is about great tasting, heart-healthy nutrition. I want to make you the heart-healthiest, most satisfied eater - and reader - ever to walk this planet.
Woody and the Candle Mountain is the story of a day in Woody’s life, as she wanders through her hometown looking hopelessly for something worth doing. She meets many local characters along the way, who all somehow manage to offer the same peace, love and granola advice, and small tokens of inspiration, which she gloomily accepts and moves on. Eventually, she visits the candle shop to admire the legendary Candle Mountain, a massive wax sculpture created over many years from hundreds of thousands of melted candles. But even this aweinspiring monument to persistence and growth, and the kind wisdom of the candle maker and his wife, can’t budge Woody’s mood. But just when she’s convinced that her day’s search has been completely useless, she finds herself in a place where her little bits of knowledge make a world of difference.
