By Mel Fabrikant Friday, March 01, 2013, 03:34 PM EST
Is the mayonnaise craze manifested by magical recipes or just mundane family matters?
In C.B. Murray’s seventh book, Matrimonial Magic and Mayonnaise the reader follows a humorous narrative where a grandmother‘s magical cooking unites a family during a catastrophic wedding by providing support, love and self-awareness.
Filled with entertaining chapters of family plights, this story recollects an aunt’s return to Iowa to attend a family wedding. While a dog runs amuck among wedding gifts, the grandmother bakes a cake with dubious magical powers, the groom spends his wedding night in jail and a dear friend dies, the reader will eagerly anticipate each coming page.
Appropriate for all ages, Matrimonial Magic and Mayonnaise reminds readers that when everything goes wrong, their family will provide strength and humor. As an added bonus, Murray spreads some of her own grandmother-magic by sprinkling special recipes throughout the book for readers to make and work their magic at home.
*In honor of Murray’s husband, 50 percent of the book’s profits will go to the American Alzheimer’s Association “
