Confessions of the Sausage Queen


I’ve had a hard time defining exactly what Confessions of the Sausage Queen is. It’s a little chick lit, a little romance, a little mystery and a whole lot of crazy thrown together to make up the story of Mandy Minhouser, a small town girl who, through no fault of her own, becomes CEO of  her hometown’s largest employer, Bill’s Big and Tasty Sausage.  The book features a large cast of lovable kooks, including but not limited to Mandy’s margarita drinking Gran Lila,  her on-again off-again eastern thought guitar playing husband Randy, her shopaholic sister Mindy, her delinquent-turned cop brother-in-law Ricky, and Rick’s brother Stannie the Stoner. Front and center is Mandy herself, a small town girl with a big heart, who rises to become The Sausage Queen.

I hope you’ll have a look!

Here’s a little teaser excerpt from the book

 “Mother Veronica’s going to change her name,” Randy sang, strumming the guitar. “Wally’s in a corner with a paper bag. Lila was found with Bill, and Bill was in drag.” Randy finished the rendition.

I rolled my eyes at him. “Nice,” I said.

“Not as nice as you in a dress.” There it was again. The look. And, okay, I was giving back the look. Only in my case, Randy is a chocolate éclair and I’m worried about the calories.
“Ah hell.” I started for the trailer’s front door, grabbing Randy’s hand in the process. I had my dress unzipped in the living
room. Randy finished the job in the bedroom.“We have to be quick,” I said. “I’ve got a funeral to get to.”

Okay, here’s the other thing about Randy. The other thing, which I guess you’ve probably figured out by now, given the reference to the bedroom and the hasty clothing removal, is that Randy is a sexual genius. Maybe it’s connected to the whole no-embarrassment thing, but Randy in bed is an explosion. Just thinking about Randy in bed makes me tingle. I told him that once after a really fine…Well, this one time where he somehow managed to pretzel his legs over my shoulders and…You get the picture, right?
