New review of WIGGLE ROOM on Martha Cheves' "A Book and a Dish"


Sometimes writers have to take a break. For many authors that means a jog around the block, an afternoon of yard work, or a round of golf ... for a lucky few, maybe a trip to Europe. Of course, a cruise might be a nice time to reflect and finish the next bestseller. However, for me a cruise is out -- since I get seasick much like my protagonist Brad Cummins in my latest thriller "Wiggle Room." (Actually Brad suffers from air sickness, a potential problem when you're an Air Force trauma surgeon.)

When taking a break from writing, I don't jog, but I work to polish off a couple of miles on the treadmill upstairs or on a neighborhood walk. Believe or not, I enjoy yardwork as another sideline. There is great catharsis in yanking up weeds.

Now author and chef Martha Cheves has challenged my versatility in a different manner, psuhing me to relax while still being constructive and creative. She's trying to turn me into a cook!

Martha asked me to take my laptop into the kitchen and submit a favorite recipe for her to publish along with her new review of "Wiggle Room."

Bon appetit!

Surgeon Diana Bratton is surrounded by bodies after the discovery of her Aunt Phoebe’s 50-year-old note detailing the five ways to die. Suicide, accident, natural cause, and one death classified undetermined are soon crossed of this list—leaving Diana to believe that only homicide remains. Then the police prove her wrong. 
When Phoebe is linked not only to that death, but to the recent deaths of two local men, Diana is torn between pursuing Phoebe’s innocence and accepting police theory that her aunt is involved in multiple murders. Diana steals precious time from…
