Event date: 
11/20/2019 - 7:00pm

Join us Wednesday, November 20th at 7pm at Book Culture on Columbus to celebrate the release of Killer Calories by Nancy Good.

From bestselling author of the Difficult Man books comes a new Manhattan mystery series.

Spend time in the Big Apple with wise-cracking amateur sleuth Melanie Deming, as she follows clues from glamorous Park Avenue mansions to gritty soup kitchens. Melanie's a snarky writer and health fanatic who shockingly discovers the body of her good-looking co-worker. She's no Lois Lane and is scared of every germ, yet Melanie must have justice for her friend. 

Devon, a blue-eyed hard-to-resist journalist, wants Melanie for a screenplay about the murder, and more.  Melanie can have the success she's dreamed of and a man of her dreams,  but she could lose her marriage and her life searching for a killer who now threatens her. Why couldn't she be satisfied with a normal job and the boring life her husband wants? 

Melanie's snappy and astute comments about marriage, the rich and famous of New York, buttercream frosting, and millionaire private school privileged parents, add to the fun while the mystery unfolds. The plot twists make for a rollercoaster ride right up to the surprise ending.


Best-selling author Nancy Good is thrilled to present the first installment of her New York City mystery series, Killer Calories: A Melanie Deming Manhattan Mystery. Nancy combines her passions for NYC, mysteries, and herbal remedies in this humorous, clever, and unique new series. Fall in love with our heroine, the hilarious, health-obsessed, and snarky Melanie, as she tries to solve the murder mystery of her secret crush with the help of an alluring and sexy journalist. This story will keep you guessing until the very end. 

Nancy’s widely released previous work, How to Love a Difficult Man, was a massive success and translated into 12 languages. She has appeared on Oprah, CNN, Geraldo, Ricki Lake, and many other television venues. 

A lifelong resident of NYC, Nancy lives on the UWS with her husband and is in search of a Maincoon cat. She is a student of herbal medicines, an avid photographer, and adores biking on trails around the gorgeous Hudson River. She is already hard at work on the second installment of this new and captivating series.
