HAPPY SPRING!

We arrived back from Uruguay to cloudy skies, chilly temperatures, and occasional heavy rain, but a few days later it was suddenly sunny and in the 70’s. Nice!

I’m looking forward to taking some long walks this spring, eating lunch outdoors, serving lots of freshly picked asparagus and strawberries, and making one of my new favorite dishes, Taverna Salad (see recipe below). What have you got planned this spring?

I got home from Uruguay to find a box of my new thriller waiting for me!

And I’m also looking forward to the launch of my next suspense novel, THE LAST TIME SHE SAW HIM, on May 14. In this gripping psychological thriller, career coach Kiki Reed bumps into her ex-fiancée at party, and then, only a short time later, learns he’s been found dead of a gunshot wound in his car. Though the police think overwise, Kiki becomes convinced he was murdered and sets out to prove it. Everything seems to come down to the last time she saw him. What did he say? Who was he talking to? Because someone at the party clearly killed him.

WHAT I’M WATCHING

Apples Never Fall
Apples Never Fall
Peacock

Are you a Liane Moriarty fan? I’ve read and really liked several of her books, so I binged the new series, Apples Never Fall, based on her book by the same title. It wasn’t as much of a mystery as I hoped for, but I still found it very compelling, in part thanks to incredible performances. Bonus for me: all the tennis. Though I was never good at the game, I’ve spent many years as part of a tennis family. If you’ve seen the series, too, I’d love to know what you think.

Homicide: New York
Homicide: New York
Netflix

I am beyond thrilled to tell you about this incredible true crime show, which began airing in March. It’s not only riveting and brilliantly done, but the ensemble cast includes my awesome friend, retired death scene investigator Barbara Butcher, who has advised me on all nineteen of my mysteries and thrillers. She is also the author of a terrific memoir, What the Dead Know: Learning About Life as a New York City Death Investigator.

WHAT I’M MAKING

[photo: recipe]As soon as I saw this recipe in the NY Times for something called Taverna Salad, from cookbook author Lidey Heuck, I knew I would like it without even reading the list of ingredients and that’s because I love anything that hints at a Greek taverna. You, too? This is kind of a mix of a classic Greek salad with the wonderful Lebanese salad, Fattoush. (FYI: it includes chickpeas, cherry tomatoes, Kalamata olives, capers, shallots, cheese etc.) I served it the other night with roasted chicken, but it would also be great with grilled chicken, too.

Until next month,
