Double the fun with Bundle #1! Lund’s first 2 novels of the Mina Kitchen series combine for delightful reads – and treats! Recipes are included at the end of each novel, per Lund’s husband, Chef Andrew Mark.
Lund’s humor hits home with this delectable duo. Some reader ratings include:
“…Kitchen Addiction is a “Must Read” light hearted comedy, perfect for the beach or a snowy day in front of the fireplace. You won’t want to put it down. I finished the story last night & realized I would miss Mina’s adventures.
Congrats Ms. Lund, we look forward to your future stories!!”
“I absolutely fell in love with this book! The characters are interesting (and all have their own flaws). I never knew what was coming around the next page in the story. I couldn’t wait to finish the book so that I knew the who’s and why’s while never wanting the story to end. I can’t wait for the author to publish another novel!”
“Lizz Lund is an amazing author! this book [Christmas Bizarre] is both funny and witty! Made me actually laugh out loud :)”
“Loved the book. I actually read it over 2 dreary days. Cannot wait for the next one. Lizz Lund is my favorite writer.”
Meet Mina Kitchen, a forty-something single who likes to cook – and cook and cook. In fact, her zest for whipping up trays of canapés is dwarfed only by her weird luck and mountain-lion size tabby cat, Vinnie. That, and her godmom’s tendency for blackmailing new members into joining St. Bart’s. Okay, maybe Mina’s Swiffer-addicted neighbor, Vito, is a bit weird, too. As if all that wasn’t enough, Mina’s a Jersey girl transplanted in the midst of the Amish-flavored countryside of Lancaster, PA.
Things get really complicated when she learns that her neighbor Vito is in a witness protection program, and her dry cleaner deals in prescription samples. Throw in a few mysterious flaming feces flingers and a fuse box labeled in Arabic, and you have a recipe for catering disorders.
Kitchen Addiction! will keep you smiling when you’re not LOL-ing. Set in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, you’ll find a surprising cast of characters, humorous plot twists, red herrings and actual recipes. Well, some of the recipes are real. The others you might to take with a pinch of salt, and some Tums.
What do Santa’s Sidekick, a dead lawyer and a geriatric vampire have in common? Meet Mina Kitchen – a forty-something single who finds trouble quicker than she can whip up a batch of breakfast breads. Plural. Her catering disorder runs neck-and-neck with her weird luck, and her cat’s weirder tendency toward gnawing elf gear. Okay, and getting kidnapped a couple of times in one week is a little strange, too.
Her next door neighbor Vito’s past as ex-leader of the Moils, the Jewish-Polish Family from Bumville, New Jersey, comes to light and throws a dollop of dilemmas into an already simmering plot.
Top it all off with a counterfeiting ring, a county-wide dearth of holiday wrapping tape, and a mass of pets running loose at the local mall, and what do you have? A recipe for disaster that Mina whips to a froth.
Christmas Bizarre will keep you smiling when you’re not shouting up a belly laugh. Set in Lancaster, “Pee-Ay” you’ll discover a lively cast of characters, funny dialogue and lots of twists and turns. Hang on tight – you’re in for a slalom of a holiday ride.

How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
Not typical contemporary-romance (I just can’t my characters them to comply with racy positions – go figure). Not a cookbook – but recipes are included. Mystery? Check. Thriller? Hmmm… are you afraid of pretzel pie? I am. So-o… Janet Evanovich, Erma Bombeck and Dave Barry walk into a bar… get it? Insert your own punch lines here. Better yet, read mine.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Don’t give up. Keep writing. You WILL get better. You WILL reach your audience. It takes time. You can’t microwave a rosebush; you can’t rush the writing process. Which, in our house, involves petting cats, and naps. Oh. And beer and chips. Very important. Avoiding housework is also of tantamount importance (there’s your silver lining.)
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Being an NJ transplant to PA has been an interesting experience. Everyone’s very nice here. It’s weird. So, to keep a fresh batch of hives from breaking out, I had to make up new imaginary friends (the old ones refused to leave NJ). Which is how I met a geriatric vampire who wears dentures…
