More About the Author

Liz Lipperman started writing many years ago, even before she retired from the medical field. Wasting many years thinking she was a romance writer but always having to deal with the pesky villains who kept popping up in all her stories, she finally gave up and decided since she read mysteries and obviously wrote them, why fight it? She's currently working on two mystery series--the Jordan McAllister Mysteries (formerly the Clueless Cook Series) and The Garcia Girls Mysteries (formerly A Dead Sister Talking Series.) Look for book #3 of the Garcia Girls Mysteries coming September 14, 2016. You might also want to check out her romantic thrillers, Mortal Deception and Shattered and a romantic short titled Can't Buy Me Love. Also, be watching for the debut of a new romantic suspense series titled SWEEPERS coming sometime next year. She wants readers to know that her G rated cozies are written as Liz Lipperman and her R rated, grittier mysteries as Lizbeth Lipperman.

She lives north of Dallas with her HS sweetheart hubby. When she's not writing she spends her time doting on her four wonderful grandchildren.

What a wonderful story, with likeable characters and twists that will keep you guessing until the end. For me, the cast of characters were a delightful treat. Jordan isn't only likeable, she's a darling. And the others who live in her apartment complex are just as endearing. Mixing humor, murder, and great food, Ms. Lipperman has a hit on her hands. I can't wait for her next book!

Jordan McAllister is about as worthy a protagonist as I've read in some time. On the rebound from an old flame, she longs to use her journalism degree to write sports columns for newspapers. Unfortunately, life's been rough and she ends up in Ranchero, Texas, barely earning a living, writing personal ads and subsisting on fast food and Hostess Ho Hos.

Jordan's big break finally comes when she's summoned to the editor's office Dwayne "Big Ears" Egan. Egan needs someone to fill in for the culinary reporter who's on leave. Ms. Lipperman takes a sports writer who knows nothing about food, and even less about cooking and make her a food critic.

With the help of her fantastic neighbors the author pulls if off, including some fantastic exotic recipes that even I can make. I can't wait for the next book in this series. Liz Lipperman has a new fan.

This book is the first in the A Cluelass Cook Mystery, by new author Liz Lipperman.

Liver Let Die is a very entertaining addition to the mystery genre.

Jordan McAllister has always dreamed of being a sports columnist. After breaking up with her boyfriend, she has moved to the small Texas city of Ranchero, TX and has gotten a job at Ranchero Globe. Okay, she is writing personal ads for the paper, but she has hopes. The culinary columnist has just broken her hip and will be rehab for six weeks. Jordan is offered the opportunity to take over her column, The Kithen Kupboard. there's the problem, Jordan's idea of cooking is to put something in the microwave and hit start. The second problem is that the first review she is asked to do is The Longhorn Prime Rib and she has an aversion to red meat. So she agrees, hoping that the job she really wants will open up.

Jordan lives at the Empire Apts. along with a real cast of characters that really shine. Rosie the fiftyish something seller of handmade jewelry, Michael, Victor, Lola a local psychic and Ray a retired cop.

Jordan heads off on her first assingment and Jordan explains to her waiter, JT, that she does not eat red meat and ask what else is on the menu that is good. She goes with JT's suggestion and when he returns with the entree, she asks what is it. Well the thought of being able to enjoy foie gras, ranks up there with red meat. She promtly stuff it in her first and offers her compliments. In the morning she is awakend to find that her waiter is found dead in the lobby of her aprtment with her name and phone number in his pocket.

The author skillfully provides the reader with several possible killers, all with reason to do it.

Jordan McAllister wants to be a sports columnist, but she follows her boyfriend to Dallas and sports columnist jobs are few and far between. Even worse her boyfriend breaks up with her after she has turned her life upside down for him.

The only job she can find working at a newspaper is at the Ranchero Globe writing the Personals ads, while she awaits her dream job. After just three months on the job she is summoned to the editor's office. Not having a clue what she did, she slowly makes her way there. She quickly learns he wants to offer her a job in addition to her Personals work. He wants her to fill in for the Culinary Reporter who is on leave recovering from an accident.

Jordan knows absolutely nothing about food, but this may take her one step closer to becoming a sports columnist, so she decides she will figure out the details later and accepts the job.

Her first assignment puts her right into the hot water. She really is trying to stay away from red meat and she has been sent to review a local steakhouse. She asks the waiter for a recommendation and he suggests the foie gras. As soon as she sees it she knows there is no way she is going to be able to eat it, so she tries to go unnoticed as she slides the plate full of food into her purse. She has ruined a good handbag, but that is nothing, when the next night she finds her waiter dead in her building and he had her name and phone number in his pocket.

She is now the prime suspect and could end up being served as the main course on the real killer's menu.

Dollycas's Thoughts
I loved this book on so many levels. First of all I am one of the pickiest eaters on the planet. It drives my family nuts but my dad was the same way.

This new book series is going to become a joy to look forward to. I base this observation upon my devouring the first, "Liver Let Die."

The premise is a sports journalist has moved to a small town, Ranchero, Texas as she finds herself chucked out by her love in Austin. The journalist finds herself in the only available job in town...a personal ads clerk. To her delight the editor offers her a part-time (no pay increase,) appointment as writer of "The Kitchen Kupboard." This is only for the time that the regular writer is out on sick leave, but, Jordan McAllister prays this chance will lead to a position on the sports page of the Ranchero Globe.

There is just a couple of stumbling blocks...no culinary talent what so ever, and a dead body that shows up under her home stairway. Jordan's home gets vandalized and there are attempts on her own life...but, why? No one has a clue.

Friends are the answer. Friends that cook, are ready to give their dishes exotic names, and friends that will join the hunt for the killer.

This series is fun, fast-paced, has romantic leanings, and contains yummy recipes. Jordan is going to be my new friend and now I must be patient until her next exploit. Did I mention Jordan doesn't care for red meat? That is why handbags were designed...isn't it?
